As Amazon’s live action slows down JRR Tolkien’s fantasy fantasy works almost unexecuted by nearly every measure, a new rumor suggests the company will be “retooling” The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power For its second season—starting to sideline the show’s current makers, J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay.

The word for this apparent change was first suggested by a famous film critic responsible for the industry and Threat movie Founder Chris Gore during an appearance on the 314th episode of YouTube livestream Midnight’s Edge in the Morning.
While discussing the series’ first season finale with that day’s panel, Gore was eventually asked by host Andre Einhergar, “What you’ve heard from your colleagues in the industry, is everyone So like rings of strength Like the directors suggest we should be? ‘ The critic admitted again, ‘Ah, no.
In fact, Gore said, not only was his industry connections unaffected by season one, his reception was so poor overall that Amazon set out to correct the course for season two.

“I heard from someone who has a connection at Amazon — if you want to know — that they would effectively retrofit it,” he explained. “And the [Payne and McKay] More than likely… they will not be publicly expelled, but their role will be reduced.”
He added, “You will probably stay in the writers’ room, but my understanding is that they are looking for more experienced models.”
To that end, Gore explained that Amazon is “well aware of the issues” before noting that while “there is something they say publicly,” there is also “what they actually do behind the scenes.”
Then he confirmed, “And what they’re doing behind the scenes, is they’re afraid this was more of a failure than they had expected.”

Regarding why the company’s top officials ostensibly sit down and act together, Gore speculated that there were three main reasons for this change.
“I think the quality of the show is the number one thing,” he said first. “[Audiences are] Like “Why am I still watching this? This is sleep-inducing.”
“The second thing is the complete rejection of the fans,” he then suggested. “I can’t believe… there must be very few people who still like it.”
And third, direct competition from Dragon House“He is finished.” Even like seeds before and after seeds [of the show’s airing]Start earlier and end later [thus keeping it in viewers’ consciousness for a longer period of time]”.

Although years passed before Gore’s speculation was explicitly confirmed or dismissed, the extremely low audience scores that the series currently holds on aggregate review sites Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes make clear that something needs to be done if Amazon hopes to justify the billion dollars. the Lord of the Rings investment.
As of this writing, rings of strength It currently holds a collective rating of 2.5/10 over 2422 on the previous port:
While in the latter, 35,548 fans left the series with a snappy rate of 39% “rotten”.

Obviously, without even delving into the massive waves of discourse surrounding honoring Tolkien’s work or the cast and crew insulting the author’s fans, the series failed to land with viewers.
And while some may feel justified to point to its new ratings of 71/100 and 85% of critics, those numbers are clearly questionable thanks to Amazon Studio Boss Jennifer Selke’s admission that they have been censoring comments from critics who have “views that We will not support”, indicating a clear tendency in the sentiment conveyed by those already published reviews.
Furthermore, Amazon has tried to move public perception of the series in their favour, the fact that rings of strength It still holds such a low audience score definitively speaking of how little audience really enjoyed this arduous ride.
