Amazon Middle-earth series supposed to adhere to canon

Just read the following article about the upcoming Amazon series. According to Tolkien scholar Tom Shippey, the Tolkien estate has required that it adhere to Tolkien's canon. It's taking place only in the Second Age, (not permitted to show events in 1st or 3rd ages) so therefore will not include a young Aragorn. So, it's Sauron and the fall of Numenor. Gah, really wish I'd finished Elegy before these guys tackle it.

Here's the link.

Here's the link to the actual Tom Shippey interview.
