With its season finale, The Rings of Power astounded the crowd. The show had a tonne of secrets, and although there was a lot of Second Age material to use as a starting point, showrunners Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne decided to develop their own plot to cover the gaps left by canon. Season 2 will, however, extensively rely on canonical sources, according to the showrunners.
The histories, languages, and peoples of Middle-earth, on which The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is based, were the focus of J.R.R. Tolkien’s lifelong effort. He created a whole universe he named Arda, the history he divided into many “Ages,” as his significant achievement. Tolkien’s premise when writing the series was that this was the true history of Earth, which was now in a Sixth or Seventh Age. However, any information beyond these Middle-earth eras is obscure and difficult.
The two were questioned about the second season of the series on the Rings of Power Podcast by host Felicia Day (which is currently filming). There is a lot of canon in this, and season 1 is a location where a tonne of creativity occurs between tent poles and the canon, in response to McKay. Season 2 has a lot more lore that we’re interested in adapting and bringing to life, the speaker continued.
“This is the story we were hoping for in season one! some fans may be thinking. In season 2, we’ll deliver it to them.” The fact that the co-showrunners of Rings of Power felt compelled to emphasize this point in two separate interviews suggests that when the show returns for its second season, fans will have a lot more canonical stories and characters to look forward to.
The seeds for this were already placed in the season finale when it was revealed that Halbrand (Charlie Vickers) was the Dark Lord Sauron. And it was revealed that the mysterious Stranger (Daniel Weyman) who dropped from the sky in Rings of Power is a member of the Istari, a group of five wizards entrusted to govern Middle Earth and safeguard it from Sauron’s manipulations (this group, Saruman, Gandalf, and Radagast are members).
Perhaps one of the defining milestones of the Second Age will be seen in Rings of Power season 2: the creation of the One Ring, one of the most momentous occasions in Middle history. earth’s Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), Celebrimbor (Charles Edwards), and Elrond (Robert Aramayo) fashioned the three rings Narya, Nenya, and Vilya to confront Sauron in the season finale. In Tolkien’s canon, the construction of the One Ring in Mount Doom occurs shortly after this, thus it’ll most certainly appear at some time.
While a Hobbit who might be Farmer Maggot appears to be directing the Black Riders in “The Fellowship of the Ring,” his portrayal differs greatly from Tolkien’s original intent. Contrary to popular belief, Farmer Maggot plays a more significant part in the LEGO video games, showing up in the kid-friendly adaptations of both “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.””
