These captivating and critically acclaimed programs represent the best-of-the-best that Prime has to offer.
Once you finally carve time out of your busy schedule to tune in, you’ll no doubt find yourself bingeing episode after addictive episode.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (2017-2023)
In Amazon’s own Emmy-winning original, Rachel Brosnahan delivers a tour de force performance as Miriam “Midge” Maisel.
After her picture-perfect marriage falls apart, Midge discovers a hidden talent for stand-up comedy and turns her razor-sharp wit into a burgeoning career.
Beyond Brosnahan’s star power, the show thrives thanks to its lavish mid-century production design, rapid-fire jokes, and poignant family drama.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will transport you back to 1950s New York City for an irresistibly charming escape.
The Boys (2019-present)
The Boys For those tired of the standard superhero fare, The Boys provides an edgy and satirical twist with plenty of gasp-worthy moments.
When a celebrity superhero’s negligent actions lead to an innocent character’s grim fate, it sets off a chain of events exposing the sinister secrets behind the multi-billion dollar business of superheroes.
Featuring Karl Urban along with a pitch-perfect anti-hero cast, this thrilling adaptation pulls no punches in questioning power and ethics, one of the best TV shows on Amazon.
You’ll need to see Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag to believe that such kind of people exists in real life, and that’s okay, you’re not alone, the world is huge.
She not only created and writes this utterly unique sitcom – Waller-Bridge also stars as the show’s protagonist – an angry, confused, sexually unapologetic woman navigating life in London.
After losing her best friend to tragedy, Fleabag frequently breaks the fourth wall to speak directly to the audience while unleashing her sorrows with uncomfortably riotous honesty.
In just two remarkable seasons, Fleabag earned 6 Emmys for revolutionizing the possibilities of comedy shows.
The Expanse (2015-2022)
For sci-fi fans craving an intricately-built universe, look no further than The Expanse.
Humanity now occupies the solar system with the tensions between Earth, Mars, and the asteroid belt threatening intergalactic war.
From the sweeping visual effects to political machinations, The Expanse offers an experience that’s both cerebral and sensational.
Adding layers of mystery and noir, it’ll leave you clutching the edge of your seat through each addictive episode. Fans are even waiting for Expanse season 7 release date but that’s not going to happen, as the show has been marked as completed.
Good Omens (2019-2023)
The brilliant duo of Michael Sheen and David Tennant shine in this quirky miniseries based on the fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
Sheen plays the polite angel Aziraphale while Tennant is the loose-cannon demon Crowley.
Though representing opposing sides, they’ve developed an unlikely friendship across 6,000 years on Earth.
But when the anti-christ suddenly arrives to usher in the apocalypse, can this odd couple band together to somehow stop destiny’s plan?
With quick-witted banter and creative takes on religious lore, Good Omens is a breezy and intoxicating ride of supernatural fun.
