The long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth. In the season premiere of Rings of Power Season 1, the show began with an expectation: a dreaded return to a time before, when Evil was called forth in full force. This is what people have been waiting for, and it didn’t disappoint. Now that you know what to expect from this season and where it’s going – how many episodes are there? The first episode is all about reintroducing these olden times without spoiling too much into it, but we’re not nearly so good at specificity with the show itself.

What is the series about?
Rings of Power Season 1 is an HBO production, which means you can expect some big-name actors, especially the dwarves. Although the show is adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien’s work, it does not tell a story in his words, but rather follows the characters’ lives that he created for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In this show, we won’t be taking anything away from Tolkien’s magnificent work but instead, present a slightly different story yet still with the same characters. You can watch this show without being familiar with The Lord of the Rings (and probably without understanding a word of English), and still enjoy it quite a bit.
What makes this series interesting to watch?
The interest in this series should be based on its actors alone: these are some of the top names in Hollywood. Some of them are previously known for films such as The Hobbit, Man of Steel, and The Avengers; others were in TV shows like Game of Thrones, The Wire, and Mad Men. There are dwarves, Elves, and other Tolkien-inspired races in this series. The best part? These creatures act as always; they don’t scream at each other “hate is bad and love is good” while they’re swarming around a fire. This show is pretty light on the acting as well: there’s not a lot of drama (unless you count the dragons, who fight each other for no real reason).
What fans are expecting from season 2?
It seems as though people are looking forward to a return of the original characters we all knew, and possibly a proper adaptation of The Hobbit. This is what we can also expect from Rings of Power Season 2: the series will continue to follow the same old, familiar characters. Although people might have been expecting a version of The Hobbit, this isn’t the case – so don’t count on it.
Is the series worth watching?
If you’re a fan of The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit, this show is worth watching, especially if you’re tired of the same old cliches in the fantasy genre. This series won’t make you cry, but it’s still worth watching.
