The series is set to explore the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-Earth’s history. Being set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, the series will feature an ensemble 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.
