Season two of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power does not even have a release date yet. But some news about The Rings of Power season three is already bubbling to the surface. A release sharing news of an overall deal inked by showrunners Patrick McKay and JD Payne hinted that work on season three has begun. It shared of future The Rings of Power chapters, “while a season three writers room has not yet opened, the showrunners have started to break the initial story outline.” Additionally, the announcement teased that Amazon expects The Rings of Power season two to debut “later this year.” Although it’s not much, eager fans of The Rings of Power chomp at the bit to hear any word from this The Lord of the Rings series.

What does later this year mean? It’s hard to say. But hopefully, we’ll find out more sooner rather than later. In the meanwhile, it’s exciting to know that work on season three is already underway. Hopefully, the time we have to wait between The Rings of Power seasons two and three won’t be very extensive. As they work on seasons two and three, The Rings of Power showrunners have also officially signed an overall exclusive deal with Amazon MGM Studios. They have additonally created their own production company, 10:40 PM Productions.

“We began this remarkable journey with JD and Patrick more than five and a half years ago and have never looked back,” shares Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon MGM Studios. He adds, “We continue to be amazed by the scope and scale of their vision and the enormous global success achieved by The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power in its record-breaking first season. We can’t wait for Prime Video customers to experience the epic adventure and high-stakes drama that JD and Patrick are continuing to build throughout season two and beyond. Naturally, the studio is thrilled to extend our overall deal with these brilliant creative minds as they continue to deliver on their passion for great storytelling.”

And all we have to say to Sanders is that we can’t wait to experience T he Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power season two and beyond either. So hopefully, as the story of season three comes together, the release date of season two comes to us. We’re ready for more Middle-earth adventures.
