The Lord of the Rings TV series confirms main cast Meet the fellowship

‘Lord of the Rings’ Series at Amazon Sets Main Cast

Table reads are now underway in New Zealand, with filming set to begin next month.

If you've been keeping your ear to the ground, you know that Robert Aramayo (young Ned Stark on Game of Thrones), Joseph Mawle (Benjen Stark on Game of Thrones), and Morfydd Clark (whom you can see presently on Netflix's Dracula and HBO's His Dark Materials) will be headlining the cast.

It feels like we've been hearing about Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series for years now, with no updates on when we might actually get to watch it - until now.

Serving as executive producers alongside Payne and McKay are Lindsey Weber (10 Cloverfield Lane), Bruce Richmond (Game of Thrones), Gene Kelly (Boardwalk Empire), Sharon Tal Yguado, Gennifer Hutchison (Breaking Bad), Jason Cahill (The Sopranos), and Justin Doble (Stranger Things).

Amazon has announced the cast for their upcoming Lord of the Rings television series.

Those new additions include Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Ismael Cruz Cordova (The Mandalorian), Tyroe Muhafidin, Sophia Nomevete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, and Daniel Weyman. These exceptionally talented men and women are not just actors: they are the new members of our growing creative family that is working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life for fans and audiences worldwide. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom helmer J.A. Bayona directs the first two episodes.

At the TCAs, Amazon made a decision to announced some of the first major details regarding their Lord of the Rings series.

The series will explore Middle Earth before Tolkien's The Fellowship of the Ring, with the official Twitter account of the show that it will take place during the second era.

In fact, the casting announcement for Amazon's "Lord of the Rings" was pretty light on details, aside from the names of the actors and not much else.

The untitled Lord of the Rings series has already been renewed for a second season and will hopefully premiere on Amazon Prime sometime in 2021.
