Confirming week-old rumors, Amazon has confirmed their deal with the Tolkien Estate to produce a new series based on the Lord of the Rings novels.

On top of a multi-season commitment, Amazon can exercise an option to produce a spin-off series as well. The Hobbit, which was covered in condensed form in Peter Jackson's first Lord of the Rings movie and later extended into its own event trilogy, is a likely candidate for such a spin-off, as is The Silmarillion, which covers the Lord of the Rings universe Eä in much greater depth.
