Just two weeks after the release of the denouement of the first season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Powerthe series based on the work of JRR Tolkien has given way to the new fiction from the creators of Westworld. A production that has taken away its place as the most viewed content on Amazon Prime Video.

The double premiere of the first two chapters ofand the rings of power, on September 2, it ended with up to 25 million viewers throughout the world. A number that turned the series into the best premiere in the history of Amazon Prime Video, surpassing even the good numbers of series of the competition like the house of the dragon.

Some good numbers that presaged a great finishing touch for its outcome, which concluded with the sum of up to 100 million viewers who watched the first season.
