The selection of TV shows on offer on Amazon Prime Video is growing by the day. Although this means we have lots of great series to catch up on, it also means it’s difficult to choose just one. But this list is here to help make your choice that little bit easier.
[Update: This week, the first season of Tomorrow’s World Today lands on Amazon Prime Video, a new show focused on exploring sustainability, technology, new ideas and worldwide concepts around innovation.]
Amazon Prime Video is part of the Amazon Prime membership, which means a lot more than fast deliveries these days.
For starters, there’s Prime Music, Audible freebies, the Kindle Lending Library, lots of photos storage and the chance to stream great movies and TV shows through Prime Video, which is Amazon’s answer to an on-demand streaming service.
Although Amazon has a huge back catalogue on its Prime Video service, there are lots of mediocre TV options too that might fool you into thinking they’d be worthy of a watch, as well as lots of truly terrible ones, which we’d prefer you didn’t waste your time on at all.
We’ve collected together a huge selection of TV shows for you to choose from, including shiny new series through to Amazon’s own original shows.
In our guide you’ll discover our pick of the best Amazon Prime TV shows that are currently on offer. We have options for fans of thrillers, comedy lovers and those who enjoy nothing more than a fantasy police drama.
Amazon has been developing and creating titles itself over the past few years, which are called Amazon Originals or Amazon Original Series.
These homegrown TV shows are arguably some of the best that the Amazon Prime Video service has to offer (think The Tick and Transparent), which you can watch instantly when you have Amazon Prime access. There are many more shows you can watch through Amazon too of course, but some of these have to be purchased in order for you to start streaming.
We’ll be keeping this list constantly updated – if any paid shows become free that we feel need to be included, they’ll be added too. Scroll through to see our picks that we’ve divided up into the following categories: drama, comedy and thriller.
If you can only watch one…
