Last week, Netflix renewed The Witcher for a second season as well, making the announcement before the first season of the show premieres.

Amazon has made a decision to renew the series for a second season before production on season one has even completed.

According to Deadline, Amazon Studios has officially given the green light for season 2 of the show.

LOTR fans get the Lord surprise when Amazon renewal the LOTR season 2 in advance, whereas its season 1 is not yet ready and going in pre-production.

The series will be set before the stories told in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings novel trilogy, though no specific story details have been given yet.

EasyJet cuts growth plan as European economies weigh on fares
The airline spent £36m on Thomas Cook's slots at Gatwick and Bristol airports giving it more summer and winter capacity. Together with the ambitious green announcement, EasyJet presented its full-year financial results.

The show is said to be a big-budget production and will take a few month's hiatus from shooting after the first couple of episodes. The objective of this break is to give the showrunners, J. D. Payne and Patrick McKay time to refine the rest of the adventure and ensure ideal consistency between the various events that will disturb the Middle-earth.

It sounds like Amazon plans to film seasons 1 and 2 at the same time as well - or it's at least mulling such a production schedule.

Taking a break after the opening episode or two is standard practice for shows with straight-to-series orders as it allows producers and executives to step back and evaluate the footage much like they would do with a pilot.

The Lord of the Rings stars Maxim Baldry, Will Poulter, and Markella Kavenagh.
