Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy is finally coming back to Netflix in the U.S. on February 1.
As reported by GameSpot, Netflix announced the return of all three films on Twitter (below), meaning The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King will once again be available to watch.
Somewhat oddly, this will also be the first time all three films have appeared on the streaming service at the same time. The Fellowship of the Ring was available for two brief stints in 2018 before being removed in January 2019, and its sequels appeared from September 2019 to March 2020, but none of the films have been available since.
“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”

Though what’s considered by many to be the best fantasy film trilogy of all time doesn’t need much help, The Lord of the Rings was making headlines again last year thanks to Amazon’s The Rings of Power series.
The Rings of Power takes place during The Second Age of Middle Earth’s history, a time only briefly touched on in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. This is the era when the Rings of Power were created and Sauron was defeated by the formation of the Last Alliance.
