We are thrilled to announce that Gabriel Akuwudike has joined the cast for the second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power for Amazon.
Developed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay, The Lord of the Rings series is described as an “epic drama” set in the Second Age of Middle-earth — thousands of years before the events of the Lord of the Rings films and the novels by Tolkien. The series brings to screens for the very first time J.R.R. Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.
Season 1 was the top original series for Prime Video in every region and has been viewed by over 100 million people worldwide. Filming for Season 2 began in October 2022.
