When we talk about streaming, we often talk about the newest show on Netflix, Hulu, or Max. Prime Video is often left out of the conversation, although it’s filled with quality original series. Here are 10 of the best shows on Prime Video, in no particular order.

10. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

In this comedy/drama, we follow the life of Midge Maisel in 1950s New York. She’s a stay-at-home wife and mother, supporting her husband’s career in addition to his passion for standup comedy. Until, you know, he leaves her for his secretary.

Midge’s life is suddenly turned upside down while she tries to navigate her impending divorce, single motherhood, and strangely enough; a newfound love for standup comedy.

This show will have you laughing with its deadpan humor, ridiculous situations, and standup shows, while keeping you invested with its heartfelt moments. There are five seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel available to stream on Prime Video and the show ended in 2023.

9. The Summer I Turned Pretty

This teen drama/romance features a classic love triangle; two brothers fighting over one girl.

In this show, we get to see the main character Belly try and choose between two boys; Conrad and Jeremiah. As the audience, we’re left to decide who we like best while picking sides Twilight style, and wondering which of the boys Belly will choose. This show is definitely one that keeps you guessing, and a little bit frustrated, throughout the episodes.

There are currently two seasons of The Summer I Turned Pretty on Prime Video. It was renewed for season three in August 2023, though it’s unclear just when that season will be released.

8. The Second Best Hospital In The Galaxy

One thing that Prime Video is completely underrated in; their adult animations. Some of Prime’s greatest shows are adult animations and The Best Hospital in The Galaxy absolutely makes that list.

In this show we see two best friends as they work in their intergalactic hospital. Everything in this show seems so foreign and they really nail the concept of alien well.

This show is more recent on Prime, having come out in 2024, and only has one season. However, season 2 was announced and is in production.

7. Swarm

Swarm is a horror limited series, and one that is a wild ride throughout.

In this show, we follow a young girl who has a heavy codependent relationship with her sister. After a tragedy occurs in her life, she resorts to violent coping mechanisms and cannibalism.

Yeah.

Given that this is a limited/miniseries, there is only one season and will not have a season two. Even still, it’s fully worth the watch and is perfect if you want something that doesn’t require a major investment.

6. Hazbin Hotel

This Prime Video adult animation follows the daughter of Lucifer (yes that Lucifer) as she tries to rehabilitate sinners in hell so they can go to heaven.

Oh, and it’s a musical.

This show is pure fun and you’re sure to have at least one of the songs stuck in your head by the end of it. There are high stakes, soft moments, dark themes, and hilarious moments. The animation style is also unique and eye-catching.

There is only one season of Hazbin Hotel, however, season two has already been announced and is projected to release in 2025.

5. The Legend of Vox Machina

Next, we have The Legend of Vox Machina. This show is really unique because it’s based off of a Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

Critical Role is a series online that features a group of friends playing their D&D campaign, The Legend of Vox Machina is just the animated version of their campaign. The show even features the members of Critical Role as the voice actors of their characters.

Aside from the cool backstory, the show itself is incredible. The fantasy elements that we follow pulls you in with the magic system, creatures, and general world-building.

There are currently two seasons of The Legend of Vox Machina with season three confirmed.

4. Fallout

This show is the TV adaptation of the popular game franchise of the same name.

In it, we’re following the aftermath of the apocalypse and most of the remaining population has taken shelter in bunkers. Although, some people didn’t get the whole bunker memo and remained outside in the wasteland.

There is one season of Fallout, with season two confirmed.

3. Gen V

A spin-off of the popular Prime show The Boys and set in the same world, Gen V follows superhero college students.

Because this show is set in the world of The Boys, there is already an expectation to know what’s going on. Gen V tells the story of the superhero youth, six young adults who attend a university specializing in teaching them how to be heroes.

Of course, this show features just as much shocking elements and gore as The Boys, while also maintaining its comedic charm. Similarly, the characters are just as memorable and iconic.

Season one of Gen V takes place after season three of The Boys with eventual plans for both shows to intersect.

2. Invincible

Invincible is an adult animation based on a comic series of the same name. In this show, we follow the son of a Superman-like figure, trying to find his way with his power.

The first episode of this show features a massive twist, changing the perception you had been given over the previous forty-five minutes or so. The characters are dynamic and interesting, the world resembles the superheroes that we know from IRL comics and movies.

There are two seasons of Invincible with season 3 already confirmed.

1. The Boys

One of the most popular Prime shows, The Boys is dynamic and enthralling.

Previously mentioned in the Gen V listing, The Boys is set in a superhero world that resembles our comics, much like Invincible. In this world, however, something is quite off with those who are supposed to protect and serve the public.

There are three seasons of The Boys with season four premiering June 13th. Catch up on the story so far here, if you want to jump into Season 4. And check out our review of the first episode of Season 4 of The Boys.
