On Sunday, March 10, at 9:00pm ET, Dr. Corey Olsen, Dr. Dave Kale and Trish Lambert will hold a VSD (Very Serious Discussion) about recent Middle-earth map revelations from the Lord of the Rings television show on Amazon Prime.

Wait! What’s Happening with Middle-earth Maps!?

For those who may have missed it, in recent weeks Amazon has issued a slow reveal of information about its forthcoming LOTR television show in the form of maps posted on the Amazon website.

The first map was a pretty spare version, showing Middle-earth without any labels or annotations:

Lord of the Rings on Amazon Prime, Map 1

LOTR on Amazon Prime, Map 1

The next map added some labels, including the revealing use of “Calenardhon”:

Lord of the Rings on Amazon Prime, Map 2

Lord of the Rings on Amazon Prime, Map 2

Now, after several more iterations, each one revealing a little more information, the latest map includes the island kingdom of Númenor, confirming that the series will take place in the Second Age:

Lord of the Rings on Prime, Map 5

But what else do these maps reveal? Join Corey and Dave on Sunday night to find out!
