He is one of the world’s greatest literary villains in history. Now appearing in a new form that will help him in deceiving the denizens of Middle-earth.

The trailer takes us back on an unexpected journey into J.R.R. Tolkien’s Second Age. This will showcase the growing evil presence of Sauron as he continues his vengeful quest for absolute power. Many fan favorite characters are returning including Galadriel, Elrond, Prince Durin IV, Arondir, and Celebrimbor, this first-look also reveals the much-anticipated creation of more Rings.

Here is the summary for season two of “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” provided by Prime Video:

In Season Two of The Rings of Power, Sauron has returned. Cast out by Galadriel, without army or ally, the rising Dark Lord must now rely on his own cunning to rebuild his strength and oversee the creation of the Rings of Power, which will allow him to bind all the peoples of Middle-earth to his sinister will.

Building on Season One’s epic scope and ambition, the new season plunges even its most beloved and vulnerable characters into a rising tide of darkness, challenging each to find their place in a world that is increasingly on the brink of calamity. Elves and dwarves, orcs and men, wizards and Harfoots… as friendships are strained and kingdoms begin to fracture, the forces of good will struggle ever more valiantly to hold on to what matters to them most of all… each other.
