‘That’s a wrap!’ the show’s social media account announced the news on Twitter.
‘Thank you to our amazing cast and crew and to New Zealand for being the incredible place we have been privileged to call home as we bring the Second Age and Middle-earth to life.’
The account went on to thank directors JA Bayona, Wayne Che Yip, and Charlotte Brändström.
‘Thank you to our amazing crew in the sun-lit forests,’ it added. ‘Thank you to our incredible crew on the sandy beaches.
‘Thank you to our adventurous crew in the rolling fields. Thank you to our intrepid crew on the black rocks.’

The synopsis for the Lord Of The Rings series was unveiled in January this year, teasing that ‘heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history’ will be introduced.
‘This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness,’ the summary stated.
‘Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth.
‘From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.’
Lord Of The Rings will premiere on September 2, 2022 on Amazon Prime Video.
