Amazon Prime Video will add several must-see originals to its roster in August. Free Meek will revisit Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill’s 2017 arrest for probation violations, including allegations of police corruption and the ensuing push for criminal justice reform among artists. One of the other most highly anticipated titles comes at the end of the month: Carnival Row, a Victorian fantasy series about a forbidden romance between a human and a mythological immigrant creature, starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne.

New on Amazon Prime: Editor’s picks

The Boys

If superheroes are going to dominate popular culture, then we at least deserve satire that’s as creative and interesting as The Boys. A partnership between comedy Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, the series follows a group of human vigilantes trying to take down corrupt superheroes. The Boys simultaneously parodies the military-industrial complex and Hollywood monoculture, but it’s also a great superhero show in its own right. The boys’ club writing tendencies and gory style will turn some people off, but for the most part, The Boys sucker-punches the superhero genre with a wink and a smile. —Brenden Gallagher

Fleabag season 2

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag has returned for a second and likely final season that is equal parts heartbreaking and hilarious. Set one year after season 1, Waller-Bridge’s titular protagonist is still grappling with the death of her best friend, Boo, and breaking the fourth wall to address the audience. But this season also presents a new love interest for Fleabag: a priest (Andrew Scott) who is marrying her dad and stepmom, which is especially humorous considering Fleabag is an atheist. Fleabag season 2 is a bittersweet goodbye to the audience, and a poignant portrait of women and the choices they face.  Tiffany Kelly

Hanna

Esme Creed-Miles gives a compelling performance as Hanna, a teenage girl on the run from the CIA, in this thriller miniseries that blends Jason Bourne action with teen drama. Hanna may not be too exciting for diehard fans of the original movie, which benefitted from its aesthetic flair and offbeat humor. But if you’re looking for a mainstream action thriller with a compelling emotional core, you’ve come to the right place. —Gavia Baker-Whitelaw
