The Rings of Power – Are Sam & Frodo in It?

The short answer is no, Sam and Frodo are not in The Rings of Power. The events of the original Lord of the Rings trilogy took place in the Third Age of Middle-Earth, while The Rings of Power takes place in the Second Age, which is literally thousands of years before Frodo, Sam, and even Bilbo ever came into the picture.

We know Hobbits can live pretty long lives, but they’re no elves like Elrond or Galadriel, the latter of which happens to be one of the main leads of The Rings of Power.

It’s possible that we may get extremely subtle references to the Bagginses and the Gamgees in the show, but as far as Sam and Frodo themselves, we won’t be seeing them in this series at all. Of course, there’s always the possibility that The Rings of Power may make more allusions to the events of the Third Age later down the line, but for now, the probability of that happening looks pretty low.

That’s all you need to know about whether Sam and Frodo are in The Rings of Power. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more news and information on the show, including whether you need to watch the original trilogy in order to enjoy this one.
