‘The Rings of Power’ Release Schedule

Amazon Prime’s $715M journey to Middle-earth is finally set to debut on the streaming service. The great news is that the premiere will come a day earlier than expected and that fans will be given a two-episode introduction to the series. But when can fans tune in for the remaining episodes? And what time can they expect the first two to drop tonight? We have answers.

Episodes 1 and 2

The first two episodes of The Rings of Power are set to drop on Amazon Prime at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET on Thursday, September 1st.

Episodes 3 through 8

Season 1 of The Rings of Power will consist of 8 episodes, each of which is expected to run roughly one hour. Following the two-episode debut, the series will release a new episode each Friday as Amazon Prime has elected not to follow the binge model for the series. The weekly release schedule is as follows:

Episode 3 will release on Friday, September 9th
Episode 4 will release on Friday, September 16th
Episode 5 will release on Friday, September 23rd
Episode 6 will release on Friday, September 30th
Episode 7 will release on Friday, October 7th
Episode 8, the Season 1 finale, will release on October 14th

How Many Seasons?

The Rings of Power takes place roughly 1000 years before the time of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films, leaving all kinds of room to tell some great stories at a time when Middle-earth was a very different place than what people remember from the films. With that in mind, the showrunners have laid out a five-season plan. With production on Season 2 set to get underway soon, it’s possible that fans will only have to wait until next Fall to catch Season 2 and that the entire series might conclude in 2026.
