The 3 Amazon Prime Video shows you need to binge watch right now

Amazon’s Prime Video seems to be aiming for quality over quantity, as new Prime Video shows seem to arrive somewhat inconsistently. You usually get one interesting title at a time and wait for the next one.

Which is why I’m thrilled to announce that there are not one, but three new Prime Video shows coming back to the service soon. And the “return” part of this novella is what I find so interesting. While we’re always hungry for new shows — and Amazon has had good luck with Reacher and The Wheel of Time — there’s something about a show that’s been renewed that’s more compelling.

Not only does the fact that a show has been chosen gives you more reason to believe that it will have a chance to tell its full story (Netflix cancels shows all the time after a season), but it means that you will have more. to Look. With previously aired seasons and upcoming editions, you’re not as likely to clear your plate as quickly.

These three shows are in their second season. Each offers something different, with survival, personal exploration, and relationship drama all at your fingertips.

Watch these Prime Video shows before they’re even further behind:

The Savages

1 season to watch – approximately 9 hours in total

You might remember The Wilds if you’re reading our roundup of shows to watch while you wait for Season 2 of Yellowjackets. Critically acclaimed – with 92% on Rotten Tomatoes – The Wilds’ first season blended teen drama and mystery with success. Her story is somewhat familiar to anyone who has watched Yellowjackets or Lost, or read Lord of the Flies, focusing on nine teenage girls who find themselves stranded on a remote island full of mystery.

And while we won’t lay out the reveal at the end of the Season 1 finale, we’ll just say it’s the kind of moment Severance fans know. The kind of “do I really need to wait to find out what happens next?” » cliffhanger for which television is a little made.

But on the way? You meet deep and interesting characters like Leah, Rachel, and Nora, and see them dealing with the traumas that made them the girls they are today. And you’ll also wonder why Toni keeps screwing up.

Season 2 of The Wilds premieres May 6, so you have plenty of time.

Fact

1 season to watch – approximately 4 hours in total duration

Undone is weird, in a very good way. From the moment I saw the first few episodes at an early screening, I realized Bojack Horseman masterminds Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg had found their next big series. This time, however, things aren’t so…cartoonish?

Although Undone is also animated, it’s a far cry from the comedic style you have in Bojack. Instead, it has a hand-drawn, rotoscoped look that seems to merge Waking Life with something much more natural.

As to what it is? Undone is about the destruction of Alma’s (Rosa Salazar) brain, as a fatal car accident sends her mind into lucid visions of her father Jacob (Bob Odenkirk). And as Alma tries to pull herself together – her relationships are frayed to say the least – visions of her father drive her to an uncanny ability to travel through space and time.

Season 2 of Undone kicks off on April 29, so you have more than enough time to prepare for it.

How to Survive Celibacy (Cómo Sobrevivir Soltero)

1 season to watch – approximately 5 hours in total duration

You loved Squid Game and Parasite, right? You can manage subtitle playback, right? And you like sassy relationship drama? Well, it’s time to dip your toe into one of Prime Video’s returning shows, How to Survive Singleness (also known as Cómo Sobrevivir Soltero).

How to Survive Being Single is an over-the-top comedy about the gravity of the current situation. Even if you’re a go-to actor, like Sebastian (Sebastián Zurita), who’s suddenly single once his girlfriend’s betrayals become public knowledge.

Somewhere between rant-filled physical comedy (think Fleabag) and modern dating horror show (i.e. Master of None), How to Survive Being Single won’t be the prestige hit of the months, but it will attract many who give it a chance.

How to Survive Being Single season 2 premieres April 15, so you have plenty of time
