I was really hoping for first age, Lay of Leithian would've easily filled a season. There's actually a LOT of content in the silmarillion that could be expanded upon/drawn out a bit without betraying the source. Children of Hurin, bam, full season. Making of the world and the war of the gods and Feanors sons, the silmarils et al would put GoT to shame. Sounds like this will revolve around Numenor though, which is a disappointing direction imo (But has there ever been a LoTR nerd who was happy with studio decisions? haha)

As long as Legolas is shoehorned into this I'll be happy.

Depends on what you mean. How long until the show is on tv? Probably a year if not more.

If you mean the timeframe in universe for when it takes place, all we know is sometime in the 3441 years preceding the LOTR trilogy.

The question was for the former. Info about the latter helps too.

Excited for this to start.

Update

Confirmed to be set in Numenor, chronicling Sauron's rise to power, creation of the rings and all that fun stuff. Still no musings of Sir Ian playing Gandalf sadly
