    It looks like the earliest we will see any of this is late 2021.

    Will this be as much of an Emmy player as the film trilogy was at the Oscars?

    I really don’t see the point of this show. The film trilogy was universally acclaimed, it wasn’t that long ago that it came out, and it all holds up incredibly well. Sure, there’s book material that was absent in the film that can be covered here, but the movies are so beloved, I just can’t fathom the idea of this series matching them, much less exceeding them.

    My initial reaction is to agree with you. The film trilogy is one of my favorites of all time. It is a masterpiece in filmmaking, and it is highly doubtful that that this adaptation could ever surpass the brilliance of the original. I also don’t want to dismiss it prematurely, though, because it could turn out to be something amazing in it’s own right. Too bad we have to wait so long to find out.

    Way to put the cart before the horse, Amazon…

    It was always going to be renewed with all the money they spent just to get the rights of it. And it probably means less break between s1 and s2 which is definitely a good strategy.
