The first trailer for season 2 of The Rings of Power does not convince despite its spectacular nature

the rings of power - season 2

It's only been a couple of days since Amazon Prime Video released the trailer second season of The Rings of Power and the reactions have not been long in coming. The first installment was quite spectacular - we did not expect anything less with the gigantic investment that was made in it - and yet the proposal did not convince everyone, especially the fan readers of the novels in the universe of The Lord of the Rings. How will they have accommodated this advance?

First teaser for season 2 of The Rings of Power

"Darkness will bind them in darkness." With that premise we are welcomed by the first video preview of what we will be able to see in the second installment of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, a series that cAs you well know, it was released in 2022 to show us what the Second Age of the Middle Earth, before the events experienced in the films of the famous ESDLA trilogy.

We meet again with many familiar faces such as Galadriel (played by Morfydd Clark), Elrond (Robert Aramayo) or Arondir (Ismael Cruz) or Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), who will have to continue facing Sauron's desire for destruction and how is little by little trying to end the life that everyone knows and loves in Middle Earth, seeking to control the known Rings of Power.

As you see, the season (composed again by eight episodes) will be full of action, a lot of action, with which we imagine that its creators, Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, they aim to convince once and for all those who did not receive the first season with good reviews. The adaptation of the characters and, above all, not respecting the canon were the defects most pointed out by judicious viewers, many even confessing that they would not give it a second chance. Will they back off now after seeing the teaser?

Reactions to the advance

The series premiered in September 2022 after great expectation and it didn't take long for the first negative reviews to appear. Although few defects could be found at the production level, as we indicated, the most die-hard fans considered that this story It strayed too far from the essence of Tolkien's universe, in some cases in an even insulting way.

There were many who considered the first season a failure, however, Amazon Prime Video has not hesitated to turn a deaf ear and continue betting on this fiction with a second installment. Among other things, because this was already written before the first one was even launched on the platform, which also means that McKay and Payne's vision will be maintained and those who hoped that the feedback received could influence the return, they will remain with their arms crossed.

The Rings of Power.

There are still three more seasons in the air (the series is planned for five, yes) and for the moment it seems that the trend is maintained. If we go to the comments of the video on the official channel of Amazon Prime Video Spain, we see that the viewers continue with a quite "hater", especially towards that idea that Sauron camouflages himself among the elves and no one notices or that there is no trace in the teaser of the hairs. Some at least applaud that with this release "the memes will return."

We will have to wait for the second season to premiere but with this attitude... Amazon has a hard job ahead of it.
