Get your queue in order.

Amazon Prime Video welcomes five original series and two original movies to its platform in June. Jonas Brothers can supplement the group’s new music with Chasing Happiness, a new documentary that chronicles the brothers’ journey to superstardom, including lots of never-before-seen footage from their early days. Absentia returns for a second season, with former FBI agent Emily Byrne struggling to adapt to her new life after killing her abductor, who tortured her for years. Those seeking lighter, more classic fare can watch the gut-busting 1980 comedy Airplane! or binge the first five Rocky films. (On second thought, maybe just the first four.)

Check out the full listings below to find out what’s new on Amazon Prime this month.

New on Amazon Prime: Editor’s picks

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

This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy

Amazon Studios’ fantastic This Giant Beast That Is the Global Economy features actor Kal Penn traversing the globe in search of answers to economic dilemmas. The whip-smart, eight-episode series covers topics from the state of rubber in Southeast Asia, to money laundering in Cyprus, to the multiple levels of corruption with famed economist Robert Reich. This Giant Beast That Is the Global Economy doesn’t claim to have the answers to all the questions it asks. It might even create new problems that you’ve never considered—but it will make you a little smarter in your water cooler conversations. —Kahron Spearman
