Amazon Prime Video is all set to spend millions of dollars for the upcoming epic fantasy adventure series, "The Lord of the Rings". The company bought the television rights for "The Lord of the Rings" for a whopping US$250 million in November 2017, making a five-season production commitment worth at least US$1 billion.

Now, it is reported that the first season of "The Lord of the Rings" TV show will cost the retail giant an unimaginable $465 million to produce.



On Friday, New Zealand's minister for economic development and tourism revealed that the fantasy drama will be one of the most costly television series ever made, with its season one price tag coming in at around $465 million.

With this kind of price, it is likly the highest amount ever spent for a single season of any TV series. For comparison, HBO's "Game of Thrones" cost around $100 million per season. Season one episodes cost around $6 million each and eventually rose to around $15 million by season eight.

Among the other top productions, Disney spent around "100 million" on the first season of The Mandalorian. Marvel's "Wanda Vision" to cost Disney around US$25 million per episode and nine episodes comprise max at US$225 million. But none is as big as Amazon's "The Lord of the Rings".

The "Lord of the Rings" series is currently in production and expected to debut in late 2021.

Stay tuned...
