In just the past couple of months we've been treated to some major new series on Prime Video, setting the streamer up nicely for a big year in 2023.

New additions to the platform include a third season of action series Jack Ryan, starring John Krasinski, as well as epic thriller series The Rig, which stars Martin Compston and Iain Glen, and follows the crew of the Kinloch Bravo oil rig as they struggle to keep themselves together in spite of a mysterious fog leaving them stranded.

Meanwhile, documentary fans have also got the brand new season of The Test, the acclaimed series following the Australian men's cricket team as they battle scandal, discontent and uncertainty.

Season 2 of Hunters has just landed on the platform also, with the second and final season bringing back Logan Lerman, Al Pacino and their gang of Nazi hunters for one last mission in South America.

As well as these recent releases there are also plenty of other Amazon originals and acquired shows in the streamer's library - with the biggest original of course being Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which made its debut in the second half of 2022.

There's also the latest season of dystopian hit The Handmaid's Tale, utterly depraved superhero show The Boys, the delightful Neil Gaiman fantasy series Good Omens, which has a second season on the way, and Hacks, the acclaimed comedy drama starring Emmy winner Jean Smart which airs on HBO Max in the US.

When it comes to acquisitions, fans of detective dramas can stream episodes of BBC favourite Death in Paradise, while acclaimed US series including Fargo and Supernatural are also available.

With so much on the platform to choose from, we're here to help, picking the best titles you can find on Amazon Prime Video and updating this list with new entries every week.

So, without further ado, here are the top titles on Amazon Prime Video for UK viewers.

    Summary:

    Reality dating show that transports 15 UK singles to a very special American High School setting for a second chance at finding love. Who will secure a date to prom and be named prom royalty?

    Why watch Lovestruck High?:

    Amazon has been notably lacking with it comes to reality formats – that is, until now. Their brand-new flashy series, Lovestruck High, sees singletons enter a fake movie high school, where they compete for love – and a $100,000 prize fund. With detentions, proms, even expulsions, the show ratchets up the drama at every turn, as all great dating shows do, and is narrated by the one and only Lindsay Lohan. No matter how you feel about the series going in, you’ll almost certainly find yourself binging through episode after episode, with that weeklong wait for more feeling like for ever.

    The kids are back! This reboot of iconic Canadian Sketch show The Kids in the Hall, which premiered in 1989 and ended almost three decades ago, brings back all the original members of the troupe, producer Lorne Michaels (known for Saturday Night Live), and the exact same edgy, off-kilter sensibility. Fans of the original will recognise characters they love, while there are plenty of new creations to keep old and new fans alike in hysterics. Some of its near-the-knuckle, crude comedy might not be for everyone, but for those who go with it, it’s sure to keep you entertained.

    • Action
    • Drama

    Summary:

    Follows Franklin and Irene York, a couple who years ago discovered a chamber buried in their backyard which inexplicably leads to a strange, deserted planet.

    Why watch Night Sky?:

    Veteran actors JK Simmons and Sissy Spacek team up for this sci-fi drama, which introduces married couple Franklin and Irene, who discover their home has a hidden chamber leading to a mysterious deserted planet. They have kept this a secret from the world for years, but it becomes harder to manage when a strange young man emerges from the portal one day and risks throwing their lives into complete chaos.

    Equal parts sci-fi mystery and family drama, Simmons and Spacek have earned high praise for their performances in Night Sky, expertly conveying the lifetime of history between these ageing lovers. Their electric chemistry makes up for the rather slow pace, which could prove testing to those who prefer their streaming dramas to be high-energy thrill-rides. Nevertheless, this is an interesting offering from Prime Video and one that could most certainly return.

    • Drama
    • 15

    Summary:

    Up-and-coming CIA analyst, Jack Ryan, is thrust into dangerous field assignments.

    Why watch Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan?:

    Buckle up for this acclaimed action-thriller adaptation of Tom Clancy’s beloved book series. John Krasinski stars as Jack, a CIA analyst who enters the field after discovering a string of dubious bank transfers. The series is full of high-voltage action as well as a strong performance from Krasinski, and a stellar supporting cast including Wendell Pierce and Michael Kelly. There have been plenty of adaptations of Clancy’s works, but in allowing time for the series to breathe, Amazon’s production develops the characters in a way that hasn’t been seen on screen before.

    There are three seasons currently available, with a fourth and final season also on the way. However, with rumours of a potential spin-off, it seems Amazon aren’t ready to get off the Jack Ryan train just yet – and neither are we.

    Summary:

    Nightingale Hart is a small London talent agency set up in the 1980s, now existing in the modern day as it struggles to adjust to changing tides and trends in an ever-protean industry. The top agents, clients, and assistants at Nightingale must do their best to juggle personal and professional problems, all while maintaining their sanity...and client base.

    Why watch Ten Percent?:

    Hit French comedy Call My Agent! has created a big buzz worldwide since it started airing in 2015, so it’s no surprise that this British version has now landed on Prime Video. The series explores the world of talents agents and their celebrity clientele, and features some seriously starry guest appearances (hello, Helena Bonham Carter!). However, the real highlight is the delightfully crafted and perfectly cast characters and their relationships – from Jack Davenport’s smarmy son of the agency’s founder to Lydia Leonard’s often fearsome agent character Rebecca, they all get their own arcs and are properly fleshed out as individuals beyond their work lives. With a biting humour but a warm heart, it’s one not to miss.

  • Undone

    • 2019
    • Animation
    • Drama
    • 15

    Summary:

    After she very narrowly survives a serious car accident, a woman discovers that she has a new relationship with time.

    Why watch Undone?:

    If you enjoyed cartoon comedy/existential drama Bojack Horseman, then you’ll love this trippy animation from the same creators. Starring Rosa Salazar and Bob Odenkirk, the series is a psychological comedy-drama, which tells the story of Alma, a young woman who, after getting in a car accident, discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father’s death.

    Dealing with themes surrounding mental health, family and culture, with a (potential) sci-fi twist, it’s at once hilarious and also devastatingly sad. The show’s unique look is created using rotoscope animation, meaning the actors performed the scenes live and animators then drew on top of them. It makes for a gorgeous looking series, which helps to heighten the un-reality of it all. With season 2 recently launched, there’s never been a better time to jump into this hidden gem.

    Why watch Outer Range?:

    Outer Range is a brand-new series on Prime Video starring Josh Brolin and Imogen Poots, and tells the genre-bending tale of Royal Abbot, a rancher who who discovers a mysterious black void, following the arrival of drifter Autumn. Part Western, part sci-fi, part family drama, the series makes a slow start but its surreal aspects keep it engaging throughout. The stellar performance from Brolin alone makes the show worth checking out, and with news episodes dropping weekly on Fridays, it’s the perfect time to jump on board this mystery-box of a series.

    • 18

    Summary:

    Supernatural drama. Dominic Cooper plays a Texan preacher who, along with his ex-girlfriend and vampire best pal, sets out to find the demons wreaking havoc across the southern states.

    Why watch Preacher?:

    This supernatural comic book adaptation comes from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad writer Sam Catlin, so you know you’re in for a slightly crazed and provocative ride. Dominic Cooper stars as Jesse Custer a hard drinking preacher who gains the ability to command others to his will. The series largely sees Jesse on a cross country road trip to literally find God, along with his friends Tulip (a trained marksman and Jesse’s love interest played by Ruth Negga) and vampire Cassidy played by Joseph Gilgun. It’s not for the faint of heart or the easily offended, but all four seasons of this anarchic series are available on Prime.

    Why watch The Boys Presents: Diabolical?:

    The Boys has been one of Amazon’s biggest hits, and with a few months left until the main series returns, the streamer has gifted us this animated anthology spin-off. Telling stories from across The Boys universe crafted by a variety of different creators (hello, Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland), the series is just as gory, dark and extreme as its predecessor. Viewers’ mileage may vary depending on the episode but this is still an animated treat for fans before the live-action show returns.

    Why watch The Wheel of Time?:

    In the years since Game of Thrones drew to a close, several new fantasy shows have emerged in an attempt to become the next big thing – and the latest is The Wheel of Time. The show is based on Robert Jordan’s book series of the same name, and given that series is made up of 14 novels it’s not likely they’ll run out of source material anytime soon. Starring Rosamund Pike in the lead role, this is high production value, grippingly told stuff – and seems sure to appeal to all fantasy fans.

    Why watch Nine Perfect Strangers?:

    David E Kelley previously had great success adapting Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel Big Little Lies, so it’s no surprise that he returned to her work this year for new series Nine Perfect Strangers. With an extremely star-studded cast – including Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon and Luke Evans – this is glossy prestige TV at its most intriguing, telling an unusual and unpredictable story about nine strangers who arrive at a wellness retreat where strange things very quickly begin to occur.

    Summary:

    The series recounts Leonardo da Vinci's extraordinary life through the works that made him famous, through the stories hidden within those works, revealing little by little the inner torment of a man obsessed with attaining perfection.

    Why watch Leonardo?:

    This historical drama stars Poldark’s Aidan Turner as the iconic artist Leonardo Da Vinci, exploring his life in 16th-century Italy and telling the stories behind his most famous works. Beginning with Leonardo’s arrest in 1506 over the poisoning of his muse Caterina da Cremona, Leonardo takes viewers inside the mind of one of history’s greatest figures, following the High Renaissance polymath’s tortured quest for perfection.

    Featuring a star-studded cast including Bates Motel star Freddie Highmore, The Undoing’s Matilda De Angelis, Dunkirk‘s James D’Arcy and The Gentlemen’s Max Bennett, this period-piece-turned-murder-mystery isn’t completely accurate when it comes to historical facts, but makes for a compelling drama nonetheless.

With the likes of Crispin Glover, Gillian Anderson, Betty Gilpin and Kristin Chenoweth starring as various mythical beings, this series has some very memorable moments indeed.
