Season 1 will span eight episodes and the finale will premiere Oct. 14.

The producers of Prime Video’s “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” opened up last Friday about how they went about crafting a fantasy drama based on JRR Tolkien’s works, but without a novel from the celebrated author to follow.

“I think it explores un-explored regions of the story so far,” executive producer and co-showrunner JD Payne told reporters during a virtual panel for press at the Television Critics Association summer tour. “So it’s based on the appendices which come at the end of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy. And then also, poems and songs and stories and half-whispered rumors and histories that are found sort of scattered throughout the text.”
