In The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, it was finally revealed who Sauron is. The actor of the villain now reveals what’s next for Sauron, and that the series will lead directly into the films.
- “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” will follow seamlessly from “The Lord of the Rings” films.
- Halbrand star Charlie Vickers reveals what other stages from Tolkien’s works Sauron will “pass through.”
- Sauron’s story will end in the Amazon series with the Battle of the Last Alliance.
Our half-brand theory has been confirmed and the charismatic “King of the Southlands” has turned out to be Dark Lord Sauron. Now, of course, fans are wondering what will happen next in “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” Season 2. Sauron actor Charlie Vickers knows!
A total of 5 seasons of “The Lord of the Rings” series are planned by Amazon Prime Video and Vickers has now revealed in an interview with US magazine Screen Rant the stations from Tolkien’s books, which the series will have thematized until the end.
“[Sauron] has a whole lot of rings to forge,” Vickers explains. Three rings were forged in the epic finale, but there are 20 rings of power in all. Vickers continues his character story arc: “He gets back to Númenor and will orchestrate the downfall of Númenor.”
The downfall of Númenor has already been foreshadowed in a vision of sorts in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. However, the event will certainly await us in season 3 or 4. In the fall of the island kingdom, Sauron loses his physical shell.
“He must take on another form and will eventually fight in the Battle of the Last Alliance. The battle at the end of the Second Age.”
So this confirms that Amazon’s fantasy series will transition relatively seamlessly into Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, as the Battle of the Last Alliance is featured in the prologue of “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship.”
The Battle of the Last Alliance, of course, lends itself wonderfully as the finale for the series, as two protagonists perish in the massive battle: Gil-galad and Elendil. The two kings – yes, Elendil is king over Gondor and Arnor at the time – face Sauron in battle and are killed.
A start date for “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” Season 2 has unfortunately not yet been set. However, we can assume that the episodes will not start until 2024 in the novelty program of Amazon Prime Video.
