“Game of Thrones” ended last year but that doesn't mean you won't see your favorite stars again.

Former actors from the hit HBO show Robert Aramayo (young Ned Stark) and Joseph Mawle (Benjen Stark) are set to appear in the new “Lord of the Rings” series coming to Amazon.

People reported that the series will delve into the storylines set before the events in the first “Lord of the Rings” novel, "The Fellowship of the Ring."

Aramayo will play a reported protagonist role that was supposed to be played by “Midsommar” actor Will Poulter. Poulter dropped out of the show due to scheduling conflicts.

The cast also includes Owain Arthur ("A Confession"), Nazanin Boniadi ("Hotel Mumbai"), Tom Budge ("The Proposition"), Morfydd Clark ("His Dark Materials"), Ismael Cruz Cordova ("The Mandalorian"), Ema Horvath ("The Gallows Act II"), Markella Kavenagh ("The Cry"), Tyroe Muhafidin ("Caravan") and more.

The series is led by showrunners and executive producers J.D.
Payne and Patrick McKay.

“After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series,” J.D. Payne and McKay said in a press release. “These exceptionally talented women and men are more than just our actors: they are the newest members of an ever-expanding creative family that is now working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life anew for fans and audiences worldwide.”

“The Lord of the Rings” series will premiere on Amazon in 2021.
