Bummer, does that mean they aren't in the same "universe"?

Nice on Amazon. I think he should be involved to some capacity. Make it a shared universe

Amazon Prime announces that their Lord of the Rings show is set during the Second Age

This is cool because you get the potential to see the actual rise of Sauron as a character rather than just a force of evil / big flaming eye.
......
The Second Age lasted for 3441 years and ended with the downfall of Sauron's army when he was defeated by the Last Alliance of Elves and Men following the downfall of Númenor.

This age was characterized by the rise (eventually with increased insolence) of Númenor, the rise of Sauron in Middle-earth, the creation of the Ringwraiths, and the early wars of the Rings between Sauron and the Elves. The Ring of Power also came into existence during this period.

Essentially it's what we see in the prologue of the movie trilogy.

Too bad that's not quite enough time to watch all the LOTR movies if we're doing extended editions.
