Tolkien fans may be treated to a Lord of the Rings TV series if Amazon and Warner Bros have their way. According to a recent report, the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien have entered talks with various TV as well as streaming services to bring to life a series based on the Lord of the Rings.
Both Netflix and Amazon are currently the top picks for series, which will bring to life the beloved classic book series to the small screen. HBO had also entered negotiations but dropped out of the running. After all, HBO already has several hit series on their hands including Game of Thrones.
Whether or not a Lord of the Rings TV series is made remains to be seen but it’s nevertheless an interesting subject to think about. With the vast source material available, the series could easily stretch for several seasons. Plus with the huge fan base garnered for Peter Jackson’s trilogies, it would virtually guarantee a lot of viewers tuning in.
