Lord of the Rings TV series synopsis

I'm assuming others are looking forward to this series, I know I am. Here's what they dropped for a synopsis...

Amazon’s official “Lord of the Rings” series synopsis reads: “Amazon Studios’ forthcoming series brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.”

“Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil to Middle-earth,” the synopsis continues. “From the darkest depths of the Misty Mountains, to the majestic forests of the elf-capital of Lindon, to the breathtaking island kingdom of Númenor, to the furthest reaches of the map, these kingdoms and characters will carve out legacies that live on long after they are gone.”

    Something to look forward to. When will it be released?

    edit: read to the bottom of the article. Guess we have a bit of a wait.

    I thought Morgoth is in the First Age and Sauron is Second Age?
  • You’re right. He’s technically not dead but he’s not the main villain
