Centered around the events of Middle-earth's Second Age, 'Rings of Power' is going to provide a unique look at the backstory of the world described by Tolkien in 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. The series is loosely based on the world created by Tolkien, with the showrunners pledging to introduce both familiar and new characters.
'Rings of Power' has already become the world's most expensive TV show ever, boasting a budget of $465 million for the first season alone.
