The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power Season 2 Teaser Reveals Sauron’s New Form – SlashFilm


I don’t know about you, but I think I’m quite ready for another adventure. It feels like ages ago when “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” first premiered in September of 2022, following an ensemble cast of characters led by Morfydd Clark’s Galadriel, Robert Aramayo’s Elrond, and Markella Kavenagh’s Nori Brandyfoot, but we’ve finally received our first look at what’s to come in season 2. The surprisingly villain-centric teaser is light on plot, but heavy on mood and tone as we glimpse what sure looks like the Dark Lord Sauron in a new form (book readers, start your Annatar theories now), no shortage of epic war imagery, and even the mysterious Stranger (Daniel Weyman, all but confirmed to be playing the wizard Gandalf) and the Harfoot Nori wandering in what’s almost certainly the desert land of Rhûn.

After depicting the making of the fabled Rings of Power and revealing that evil had been hiding in plain sight all along (Charlie Vickers’ Halbrand, aka Hot Sauron), season 2 clearly has a lot of ground to cover and returning showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will need to be up to the task. Much of the original cast is set to return, from Charles Edwards’ ring-forging elf Celebrimbor (whom we also see briefly in the teaser) to Ismael Cruz Córdova’s warrior Arondir to, of course, everyone’s favorite dwarven power couple Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur) and Princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete). Joining them will be Ciarán Hinds, Rory Kinnear, Amelia Kenworthy, and Sam Hazeldine stepping in for Joseph Mawle as the corrupted elf Adar.

We now know that season 2 of “The Rings of Power” will debut on Prime Video on August 29, 2024.
