Good news, Tolkien fans: Prime Video has just granted us our first look at The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power season 2 with a teaser trailer, as well as a confirmed release date. The second season will premiere on the streaming platform on August 29th.

The teaser opens on Sauron’s (Charlie Vickers) face as we hear the voice of Durin IV (Owain Arthur) warning, “an evil, ancient and powerful, has returned.” Per Prime Video’s newly-released synopsis, “In Season Two of The Rings of Power, Sauron has returned. Cast out by Galadriel, without army or ally, the rising Dark Lord must now rely on his own cunning to rebuild his strength and oversee the creation of the Rings of Power, which will allow him to bind all the peoples of Middle-earth to his sinister will. Building on Season One’s epic scope and ambition, the new season plunges even its most beloved and vulnerable characters into a rising tide of darkness, challenging each to find their place in a world that is increasingly on the brink of calamity. Elves and dwarves, orcs and men, wizards and Harfoots… as friendships are strained and kingdoms begin to fracture, the forces of good will struggle ever more valiantly to hold on to what matters to them most of all… each other.”
