The ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy will be removed from Netflix in the final month of the year. The three chapters of the famous saga adapted by Peter Jackson will leave the programming schedule next Tuesday, December 1.
The saga’s removal from its lineup is due to the upcoming launch of WarnerMedia’s streaming HBO Max. For those who didn’t know, the ‘Lord of the Rings’ franchise is a production of Warner Bros., one of the studios owned by the WarnerMedia conglomerate.
It’s worth remembering that JRR Tolkien’s tale will turn into a TV series, which is in development by Amazon Prime Video.
The cast of the series includes Maxim Baldry (‘Doctor Who’, ‘A Second Chance to Love’), Robert Aramayo as protagonist, Owain Arthur, Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Budge, Morfydd Clark, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Ema Horvath, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Sophia Nomvete, Megan Richards, Dylan Smith, Charlie Vickers, Daniel Weyman and newcomer Tyroe Muhafidin.
The plot of the series will take place before the events presented in the first book written by JRR Tolkien.
The first two episodes will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (“Jurassic World: Realm Threatened”), who will also be the executive producer alongside Belén Atienza.

It should be remembered that the production has already been renewed for the 2nd season.
The screenplay is by JD Payne and Patrick McKay.
For now, more details have not been reported, except that the series is expected to debut in mid-2021.
Tolkien’s novel trilogy was adapted for theaters between 2001 and 2003, winning 17 Oscar statuettes, including Best Director for Peter Jackson and Best Picture in 2004 for “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”. Later, the franchise also won a prequel trilogy titled “ The Hobbit. ”
