Sauron is back in the trailer for the second season of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and this time he’s taken on a fair elven form to trick those who seek to destroy him.

The teaser does more than give us a glimpse of Charlie Vickers’ Sauron once more; it also includes the well-known J.R.R. Tolkien line, “Darkness binds them,” and shows us the three rings of power created (and also bound to Sauron’s One Ring, whether they know it or not!) to fight against Sauron no matter what confusingly attractive guise he takes.

Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming episodes:

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.

Trying to defeat the Dark Lord, it seems, is really about the friends you make along the way.

The Rings of Power Season Two premieres on Prime Video on August 29, 2024.
