Best New Series on Amazon Prime Video

In the series department, Prime Video has something for everyone this May. That includes new seasons of fan favourites and a handful of series premieres. Here are the best new series on Prime Video for this month.

Outer Range: Season 2

Release Date: 16 May 2024

Picture a mix of Yellowstone and Close Encounters of the Third Kind and you might end up with something like this popular sci-fi series. In Season 2, Wyoming rancher Royal Abbott (Josh Brolin) continues to fight for his land while grappling with a mysterious hole in the ground and the disappearance of his granddaughter. If we know anything about shows like this one, it will present more questions than answers but here’s hoping for some resolution anyway.

Clarkson’s Farm: Season 3

Release Date: From 3 May 2024

British TV presenter and controversy magnet Jeremy Clarkson might know everything about cars but he knows far less about farming arable land. So goes the premise of this beloved reality series, in which Clarkson revives and runs the thousand-acre Diddly Squat Farm. In the third season, he must think on his feet and quickly as he contends with failing crops, rising supply costs, and other challenges.


Release Date: 9 May 2024

Comedian Daniel Tosh returns to television as the host of this brand-new reality series. It puts 14 established reality stars under the same roof—aka GOAT Manor—and runs them through 20 daunting challenges. Alliances will be forged and then broken as the competitors vie for a grand prize of $200,000 and the title of GOAT. With Tosh being involved, we expect some good laughs.

Maxton Hall – The World Between Us

Release Date: 9 May 2024

This romantic drama series is based on the first novel from Mona Kasten’s bestselling Maxton Hall trilogy. It takes place at an elite private school, where scholarship student Ruby witnesses a shocking event involving the handsome but arrogant trust funder James Beaufort. A battle of wits ensues and unexpected sparks fly as two very different worlds collide.

Best New Movies on Prime Video

If you didn’t catch movies like EXPEN4ABLES in theatres, you’ll have the chance to stream them on Prime Video this May. A number of other titles will also be available to rent or buy. Here are the highlights.

May December

Release Date: 30 May 2024

The latest drama from director Todd Haynes drew inspiration from real events and made its streaming debut on Netflix in December of last year. It follows actress Elizabeth Berry (Natalie Portman) to the city of Savannah, Georgia, to perform research for her upcoming role. Her subject is scandalized teacher Gracie Atherton-Yoo (Julianne Moore), who slept with a student that she later married. From this premise comes a slyly comic study of motivation and exploitation in the modern age.


Release Date: 13 May 2024

If IMDb ratings and critical reviews are anything to go by, the fourth Expendables movie is downright abysmal (though it does have a decent Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes). However, don’t let that stop you from tuning in for loud explosions and other forms of mindless entertainment. This time around, the aging team of elite mercenaries welcomes a new crew of fresh talent.

The Idea of You

Release Date: 2 May 2024

Anne Hathaway plays 40-year-old single mom Solène in this romantic comedy, based on a novel of the same name. While attending Coachella with her daughter, Solène strikes up an unlikely romance with 24-year-old boy bander Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine). But can they make the relationship work? Watch to find out!

Arthur The King

Release Date: 10 May 2024

We’re always down for a good dog movie and this one culls inspiration from actual events. The story centres on endurance racer Michael Light (Mark Wahlberg), who adopts a stray and brings it along for the Adventure Racing World Championship. How can we resist?!

Monkey Man

Release Date: Available to rent or buy in May 2024

Dev Patel made his directorial debut with this John Wick-esque action movie, in which he also stars. Against the backdrop of India’s corrupt economic system, an enraged young man (Patel) avenges the death of his mother. Fists will fly and scores will be settled so don’t miss it.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire

Release Date: Available to rent or buy in May 2024

The latest Ghostbusters movie has been described as prolonged fan service but maybe that’s just what some viewers are looking for. It brings the action back to New York City, where an ancient artifact unleashes the second ice age. Joining the recent cast are the original Ghostbusters (minus Harold Ramis) for a high-stakes adventure with comedic overtones.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire

Release Date: Available to rent or buy in May 2024

If you like the sound of Titans clashing and other planetary disasters, then you’ll probably enjoy this monster movie mash-up. It skims on the story (according to most reviews), but who the heck is watching this stuff for the story anyway? You want to see buildings getting crushed and monsters battling it out and on that front, it reportedly delivers. Stream this one at home on the largest TV you have.
