Are you looking for the best TV shows on Amazon’s Prime Video? We have covered you with our guide to the best original series and shows from Amazon Prime Video.

Let’s first talk about the streamer’s large tent poles, which you will see well represented on our list. While The boys forced our attention in 2019, the series has jumped higher on our list with its season 2 release. Will season 3 shoot it even higher? The wonderful Mrs. Maisel kicked off a TV price storm the year before. These comedies were not the first of Amazon Prime Video’s original shows to receive critical and acclaimed attention. That honor goes to the pioneering Transparentwhich ended in 2019 after four seasons and a musical finale.

Other top titles include Flea bag, The Wilds, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Homecoming, Good alerts, The enlargementand more.

For this guide, we set out to list Amazon Prime’s best binge-watch TV shows, now from all the titles that the service (and its sister streaming service IMDbTV) have released since 2013. Below you will find almost 70 titles that reached the top. To be included in our list of the best Amazon series, titles must be fresh (60% or higher on the tomato meter) with at least 10 reviews.
