Bingeing on a Budget? Top 3 Most Expensive TV Shows Ever Made

Everybody enjoys a good TV show, but have you ever considered the financial burden of bringing those huge battles, expansive settings, and elaborate costumes to life? Get comfortable, as some of our most cherished television programs have incredibly high prices. The top 3 most expensive TV series ever produced are as follows:

1. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Amazon Prime Video)

The most recent rendition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s renowned universe on Amazon ranks highest. This prequel series, which is expected to cost an incredible $58 million each episode, aims to be both artistically spectacular and true to the original work. Given that enormous sets and the recreation of Middle-earth’s Second Age are involved, it’s understandable why this epic fantasy is the most costly.

2. Stranger Things (Netflix)

With its blend of coming-of-age drama and extraterrestrial monsters, this nostalgia-fueled science fiction spectacle transports us back to the 1980s. Stranger Things episodes are said to cost about $30 million per, most likely because the Upside Down and the Demogorgon require complex special effects. Not to mention the spectacular settings and the youthful A-list cast who have grown up with the show.

3. House of the Dragon (HBO)

Stepping back into the world of Westeros, House of the Dragon is a prequel to the megahit Game of Thrones. With a budget of $20 million per episode, HBO is sparing no expense to recreate the grandeur and political intrigue of the Targaryen dynasty. Expect fire-breathing dragons, epic battles, and lavish costumes – all for a hefty price tag.
