This epic drama takes viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope was hung by the finest threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien's pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.

The series follows a diverse cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they face off against the long-awaited return of evil to Middle-earth. From the misty mountains to the majestic island kingdom of Nmenor, these kingdoms and characters will leave legacy that will live on long after they are gone.
