8 new episodes in Middle-earth

As a reminder, the adventure dates back to 2017, when Amazon acquired the television rights to JRR Tolkien's work for the modest sum of $ 250 million. The overall cost of the first season of 8 episodes is then estimated at $ 450 million. Amazon Studios specified at the time: “The series will take place in the famous Middle-earth and will take up some emblematic characters of the saga in a period of relative peace, thousands of years before the events of the books The Hobbit and The Lord of the JRR Tolkien rings ”.
