Bombadil in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

The second season of The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power premieres exclusively on Prime Video this August.

Read the official season two synopsis:

"In Season Two of The Rings of Power, Sauron has returned. Cast out by Galadriel, without army or ally, the rising Dark Lord must now rely on his own cunning to rebuild his strength and oversee the creation of the Rings of Power, which will allow him to bind all the peoples of Middle-earth to his sinister will. Building on Season One’s epic scope and ambition, the new season plunges even its most beloved and vulnerable characters into a rising tide of darkness, challenging each to find their place in a world that is increasingly on the brink of calamity. Elves and dwarves, orcs and men, wizards and Harfoots… as friendships are strained and kingdoms begin to fracture, the forces of good will struggle ever more valiantly to hold on to what matters to them most of all… each other."

Tom Bombadil, a fan-favourite character from J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy epic, steps into the fray played by Rory Kinnear.

“There’s this sense of huge experience, huge openness, huge empathy, and having gone through so much that he [Bombadil] knows it’s the small things that are important. That felt actually quite domestic, felt quite reachable in terms of my understanding of who he was.”

  1. There isn't a show I look forward more keenly to thoroughly ignoring

    1. Even Tom Bombadil won't persuade you otherwise?
