Add this one to your viewing history before The Boys returns June 3.

Reacher (2022-)













Adapted from Lee Child's best selling Jack Reacher book series, Reacher's 10-episode first season packs a muscular punch.

Hanna (2019-)













The premise of Hanna, a Joe Wright action thriller from 2011, is so good Amazon fleshed it out for a TV series. Starring Esme Creed-Miles as the skilled young assassin living in the Romanian wilderness, Hanna the TV show expands the teen's backstory and explains why the CIA's Marissa Wiegler has an obsession with capturing her.










Romance














The Summer I Turned Pretty (2022-)













If a coming-of-age tale with a peak summer setting, teenage love triangle and soundtrack stocked with Taylor Swift songs sounds appealing to you, keep reading. The show centers on Belly (breakout actor Lola Tung), who makes a much-anticipated annual commute to a beach house with her mom and brother. But she looks a bit different than she did the last time she set foot on Cousin's Beach and spent time with her mom's best friend's sons, Conrad and Jeremiah. Young-adult author Jenny Han wrote the book on which the TV series is based and serves as one of the showrunners.



















Amazon Studios





The Pursuit of Love (2021)













You're either going to fall madly in love with or arch an unimpressed eyebrow at this romance based on the 1945 Nancy Mitford novel of the same name. The Pursuit of Love follows two cousins who represent different ways of life. Lily James is Linda Radlett, whose exuberant romantic adventures see her travel from London to Paris. Emily Beecham, meanwhile, is Fanny Logan, navigating the confinements of married life. If you're in the mood, this three-episode miniseries will sweep you up into a story of happiness and sadness, laughter and pain.



















Amazon Studios





Modern Love (2019-)













Grab your blanket and a cup of tea for this sweet, cozy viewing. Modern Love is based on real-life personal essays about love from The New York Times column of the same name. These stories are delicately brought to life for the screen by a starry cast, including Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel and, in season 2, Minnie Driver and Kit Harington. Some stories won't be tied up with a neat bow, and some will take you to unexpected places. The overall tone is feel good without being overly saccharine, and it might just stir your belief in the magic of true love.



















Prime Video





With Love (2021-)













Looking for love? With Love might be the perfect feel-good rom-com. The charming premise sees the Diaz siblings, Lily and Jorge, navigate major holidays across the year, from Halloween to Christmas -- major holidays that put pressure on singletons in search of romantic relationships. Follow the Diaz's on their journey, along with their delightful and sometimes delightfully awkward extended family. An earnest, enjoyable breeze.










Fantasy









Amazon Studios





The Legend of Vox Machina (2022-)













Buckle up for a brand-new animated series that centers on a group of boisterous, belching misfits called Vox Machina. Based on Dungeons & Dragons web series Critical Role (you don't have to be familiar with that to enjoy this show), The Legend of Vox Machina sees its protagonists go from being broke bar-hoppers to accepting a mission to stop evil brewing in Exandria. We're further introduced to the characters in a musical number that occurs about halfway through the first episode. That's right, I said musical number. But you'll be down for every element this show throws at you. Why would anyone choose these misfits to fight for the kingdom? "Well... they do have a bear," one royal decision-maker concedes.



















Amazon Prime Video





The Wheel of Time (2021-)













This fantasy show adapts Robert Jordan's popular series of novels. Rosamund Pike plays the mystical Moiraine, a member of a powerful organization of women called the Aes Sedai. She's on the hunt for the reincarnation of the Dragon, a wielder of the One Power who went mad and destroyed much of the world. This reborn hero or heroine could potentially vanquish an evil entity called The Dark One. The show, rife with magic and wicked monsters, brought in a ton of eyeballs during its debut week. If you cherished this post and you would like to acquire additional info with regards to digital marketing job description kindly take a look at our own internet site. Though it may not replace your favorite fantasy series, it still may be destined for your screen.

Forever (2018)













If you're in a particularly meditative mood, reflecting on life, relationships and the big choices we make in life, Forever will gently set your world on fire. June (Maya Rudolph) and Oscar (Fred Armisen) are a married couple cruising through their suburban life until vastly unexpected turns take them into otherworldly territory. Stick through the slow-burning first episode and you'll be rewarded with an exceptionally crafted eight-episode series, gently wrapping you in its visually beautiful and meaningful dream.

Good Omens (2019)













This adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's novel pairs two other UK treasures in David Tennant and Michael Sheen. They play the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale, respectively, in this miniseries that sees Earth on the brink of destruction thanks to a final battle between Heaven and Hell. Decidedly against this, after enjoying their time on the planet, the bickering pair team up and attempt to prevent Armageddon. With a stacked cast, including a cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch as, well, Satan, Good Omens is a worthy adaptation, largely thanks to Tennant and Sheen's double act.










Drama









Des Willie/Amazon Studios





Flack (2019-)













This British drama introduces Robyn (Anna Paquin) a quick-witted, poor-decision-prone PR pro whose job is to cover up blunders in the lives of high-profile clients. She's highly effective at the gig but equally apt to blow up her own personal life through choices that threaten relationships with those close to her. Seeing Robyn and her associates clean up celebrities' messes provides ample entertainment, and with two short, six-episode seasons, it can be consumed quickly.



















Amazon





The Wilds (2020-)













Amazon's first original young adult offering is an intriguing combination of Lost and the Breakfast Club -- and it works. Crucially, the cast of characters who find themselves stranded on a deserted island are all teenage girls. To them, that makes life even more excruciating. Each has a very different background -- from spoiled rich girl to Native American -- but they have to put aside their differences to survive, learning a thing or two about themselves on the way. Things get even more dark and thrilling when Rachel Griffiths' Gretchen Klein comes into the picture as the head of the secretive Dawn of Eve program.




















Amazon Studios































A Very British Scandal (2022)













Unfurling over three hour-long episodes, A Very British Scandal dramatizes the highly publicized, real-life divorce between the Duke and Duchess of Argyll in the 1960s. Starring Claire Foy, of Netflix's The Crown, and WandaVision's Paul Bettany, it depicts everything from the pair's first meeting to their appearances in court. Escape into this gripping retelling, which features committed performances from Foy and Bettany.

As We See It (2022-)













A newer entry to Prime Video, As We See It earns a spot among its best shows. Starring three actors who identify as autistic, this sincere series follows young adults on the autism spectrum as they navigate jobs, making friends and finding love. Neurotypical actors usually play autistic characters on screen, so the casting sets this one apart. It's also heartfelt, funny and poignant, with well-rounded characters you'll want to root for. I could let the show's glowing Metacritic score speak for itself -- but whatever convinces you, this needs to be your next watch.



















Amazon Studios





Picnic at Hanging Rock (2018)













This TV version of Picnic at Hanging Rock isn't quite a masterpiece like the 1975 film adaptation of the classic Australian novel. But it's just as mysterious, unfurling a dreamy yet eerie veil over a fictional disappearance in the isolated Australian bush. When three students and their governess go missing after a picnic at the rock area, hysteria sets into the community and the esteemed Appleyard College, led by Natalie Dormer's formidable headmistress. Dark secrets emerge, keeping you hanging on until the end.



















Amazon Prime Video





The Underground Railroad (2021-)













Sublime filmmaker Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) takes on adapting Colson Whitehead's novel The Underground Railroad into a powerful 10-episode series. Set in the southern US during the 1800s, the fictional story follows Blacks attempting to escape from slavery via a network of hidden tracks and tunnels. Tapping magical realism and a superb cast including Thuso Mbedu and William Jackson Harper, The Underground Railroad is an emotional and chilling triumph.



















Amazon Studios





Informer (2018)













This gripping British series is about, yes, an informer and the murky territory involved in coercing someone to take on the dangerous gig. Paddy Considine (who now has a gig on the Game of Thrones prequel) stars as DS Gabe Waters, a counterterrorism officer tasked with infiltrating a far-right movement in West Yorkshire. Partnered with an excellent Bel Powley (The Morning Show, The King of Staten Island) as the young and inquisitive DC Holly Morten, he attempts to bring British Pakistani Raza (Nabhaan Rizwan) on board to uncover information about a possible terrorist attack. A provocative thriller that will keep you on your toes.



















Amazon Studios





The Last Tycoon (2016-2017)













Matt Bomer, Lily Collins and Kelsey Grammer star in this 1930s-set drama about a brilliant Hollywood executive. Self-made prodigy Monroe Stahr (Bomer) faces a constant struggle with studio head Pat Brady (Grammer). The series takes an interesting angle, exploring the influence of the Nazis and the German market on Hollywood politics in a world on the brink of war. The Last Tycoon is based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's last book, unfinished and posthumously published, with loose inspiration from producer Irving Thalberg, known as The Boy Wonder during the early 1900s. Superbly acted, sumptuous to look at and centered on absorbing characters, The Last Tycoon ended too soon after one season.



















Amazon Studios





The Collection (2016)













If you like your fashion and historical drama, The Collection aptly brings the two together. Set in a post World War II Paris, the eight-part series follows two entrepreneurial brothers who clash as they build their fashion empire. Rivalry, betrayal and Nazi occupation are the provocative elements that light a fire under this handsomely shot family drama. Note of warning, once you become hooked on the deftly layered intrigue, you'll have to face the disappointment of no second season.










Sci-fi

Night Sky (2022-)













When a wheelchair-bound Irene York tells her husband, Franklin, that she wants to go see the stars, he guides her out of the house and into the yard. Moonlight shines down on them through gaps in the trees, but Franklin doesn't stop walking. Prime Video's new sci-fi series Night Sky opens with the sweet and wholesome York couple, who, through a mysterious chamber on their property, can access another planet. The unfamiliar world -- as well as the puzzling pathway -- will draw you in, and Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons deliver stellar lead performances.

Outer Range (2022-)













In this sci-fi Western, Josh Brolin stars as Royal Abbott, a Wyoming rancher who finds an obtrusive, inexplicable void on one of his pastures. The mysterious pit isn't the only thing he has to worry about, though -- his family is also locked in a battle with neighbors who'd like to take a portion of their land. Between these two developments, there's more than enough going on in this small town to hold your attention. Stick with the series long enough, and you'll get swept into its rural mystery. 



















Amazon





Tales from the Loop (2020-)













Not just another show about a small town where strange things happen, Tales from the Loop has a lot more underneath the surface. Drawing from a narrative art book by Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, the series is stunning to look at, meticulous as can be with symmetrical frames. Light and space are infused with a painterly feel. The interconnected townspeople are similarly nuanced, their stories exploring loneliness, aging, the impact of technology and more through sci-fi ideas.
