The Rings of Power Episode 8 Release Date and Global Release Times

**Warning – Spoilers ahead for The Rings of Power**

The Rings of Power Season 1 is sprinting towards the finish line on Amazon Prime with only one episode left to go and we confirm the release date and global release times of Episode 8.

Episode 7, titled The Eye, saw the direct aftermath of the natural disaster last week as our characters tried to find safety. Elrond and Durin were also welcomed back into the spotlight, where the former had to choose between loyalty to his friend and duty to his race.

Developed by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay for Amazon Prime and based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel, The Lord of the Rings, The Rings of Power will be set thousands of years before The Hobbit and its successor, starring Robert Aramayo, Morfydd Clark, Owain Arthur, Maxim Baldry, and many more.

How Many Seasons of The Rings of Power Have Been Green Lit?

Amazon Prime has already commissioned five seasons of The Rings of Power including 50 hours of content, which is a daring feat.

Speaking to Empire Magazine about the show’s longevity, showrunner JD Payne boasted the team knew what the final shot of the last episode was going to be:

“We even know what our final shot of the last episode is going to be. The rights that Amazon bought were for a 50-hour show. They knew from the beginning that was the size of the canvas – this was a big story with a clear beginning, middle and end. There are things in the first season that don’t pay off until Season 5.”
