Here’s the official 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.”

The teaser promises action-packed journey through Middle-earth as Sauron continues his quest for power. It also reveals the creation of more Rings and confirms the return of fan favourite characters including Galadriel, Elrond, Prince Durin IV, Arondir and Celebrimbor.

The second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power comes from showrunners and executive producers J.D. Payne & Patrick McKay.
