Amazon head Jennifer Saike says the Lord of the Rings TV show could premiere in 2021. The series is still in the early development stage, but is easily Amazon’s most ambitious and expensive original TV show yet. Initial reports have suggested the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy adaptation could cost as much as $500 million to produce over multiple seasons, with some estimates pegging the cost at $1 billion total. Saike has further confirmed that the series will include beloved characters from the Lord of the Rings trilogy proper, including (rumor has it) the younger version of Isildur’s heir himself, Aragorn.
However, given that much of this information is unofficial, it’s not been clear how far along the fantasy TV series actually is, much less when viewers might get to visit the small screen version of Middle-earth. According to Saike, the Lords of the Rings TV show doesn’t even have a showrunner just yet (much less a formal title), but it could begin streaming through Amazon within three years from now.
