The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Plot and Cast

It starts during a time of relative peace and covers all the major events of Middle-earth’s Second Age that including the forging of the Rings of Power, the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the fall of the island kingdom of Numenor, and the last alliance between Elves and Men.
The events take thousands of years in Tolkien’s original stories but are condensed for the series. Further details shall be revealed once the show premieres on Amazon Prime Video.
Although it cannot be confirmed who might return in Season 2, we can expect to see the lead cast members of Season 1. This includes Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, Naznin Boniadi, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Charles Edwards, and Lenny Henry.
We will also get to see Markella Kavenagh, Simon Merrells, Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Charlie Vickers, Benjamin Walker, and Daniel Weyman in other important roles.
