Set centuries before the events depicted in the LOTR and the Hobbit films, the show explores some of the most pivotal events unfolding in Middle-earth's Second Age. With spectacular visuals and screenplay, the series has gained massive popularity. The official synopsis of the show, according to Amazon Prime Video, reads:

''Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.''

The synopsis further states:

''From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.''

The show features a starry list of actors essaying an array of fascinating characters, including Morfydd Clark as Galadriel; Charlie Vickers as Halbrand (who's now shown to be the Dark Lord, Sauron); Charles Edwards as Celebrimbor; and Robert Aramayo as Elrond, among many others.

The actors have received widespread critical acclaim for their performances throughout the first season. When the series premiered in September, the initial reactions were mixed, partly due to the show's slow-burn approach and focus on characterizations instead of depicting relentless action and drama.

Filming for the upcoming season 2 has reportedly already begun, and with several pivotal events and character arcs left to be explored, viewers can look forward to a gripping and emotional season.

You can watch The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power finale on Amazon Prime Video.
