Other great shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video
From the gritty superhero series “The Boys” to newer shows from Amazon Studios such as “The Summer I Turned Pretty,” there are plenty of worthwhile titles to stream on Prime Video.
‘A League of Their Own’
At long last, Amazon Prime Video’s series adaptation of the cult classic 1992 film, “A League of Their Own” has arrived. And according to critics, it doesn’t play around. (It’s popular with Amazon viewers too, who rate the series 4.7 stars.)
“A League of Their Own” follows World War II-era athletes playing for the Rockford Peaches in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The series stars Abbi Jacobson, Chanté Adams and D’Arcy Carden.
Now available to rent on Amazon: ‘Nope’
Jordan Peele’s latest blockbuster follows two siblings struggling to run their family’s horse ranch in Southern California. When the pair discovers a UFO lurking just above their land, a dangerous opportunity presents itself. Starring “Get Out” actor Daniel Kaluuya, Steven Yeun from “The Walking Dead” and former Nickelodeon star Keke Palmer, “Nope” is now available to rent through Prime Video.
‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’
More than 20 years after the first chapter of Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy premiered, fans are getting a prequel. “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” explores the legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle Earth’s history, thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings.” This long-awaited fantasy series is now streaming.
‘Making the Cut’
Ready to find out who will be America’s next best fashion designer? Season 3 of Amazon Prime Video’s “Making the Cut” is currently strutting down the streaming runway. Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn host alongside judges Nicole Richie, Jeremy Scott and a rotating roster of guest judges as 12 designers face off to prove their design skills.
Fans of the fashion design series can also shop the looks created by their favorite competitors at the “Making the Cut” Amazon Fashion storefront.
‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’
Isabel “Belly” Conklin’s family spends every summer at the beach home of her mother’s lifelong friend, Susannah. But this summer is different. At 16, Belly isn’t a kid anymore. And Susannah’s handsome teenage sons, Conrad and Jeremiah, have definitely noticed.
From the author of “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” this much-buzzed-about coming-of-age romance (which has already been renewed for a Season 2) shows all signs of becoming a cultural touchstone for 2022.
In a world where superheroes are treated as gods and behave as villains, a group of vigilantes (the Boys) are on a quest to expose the powerful figures’ dirty secrets. Season 3 of Prime Video’s “The Boys” sees the return of Antony Starr, Karl Urban, Jack Quaid and Erin Moriarty.
Four ’80s-era paper girls accidentally find themselves in 2019 and get caught in the crossfire between two other warring groups of time-travelers. To find their way home, the girls need help from the only people they can trust: their future selves. Ali Wong stars in this thrilling new sci-fi series, based on the best-selling graphic novel “Paper Girls.”
‘Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls’
The “Juice” singer scouts new backup dancers for her world tour in a new reality show, “Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.” Ten contenders are moving into the Big Grrrls House, where they’ll work together across eight episodes to see who has what it takes to share the stage with the pop icon.
In a future where people have hacked death by creating a digital heaven they can “upload” into when their time comes, a freshly-dead computer programmer enters a luxe virtual afterlife after a mysterious accident. “Upload” stars Robbie Amell, Andy Allo and Allegra Edwards and comes from the mind of “Parks and Recreation” co-creator Greg Daniels.
