Amazon Prime is bringing the heat in May, with four original series and two original movies hitting its streaming service. That includes Luca Guadagnino’s supernatural horror film Suspiria, about a young woman who uncovers sinister secrets about her dance school. Sneaky Pete also returns for a third season, following con man Marius Josipovic and the family of his ex-cellmate, Pete, whose identity Marius stole to escape his past. One of the most anticipated titles comes at the end of the month: Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens, based on his 1990 novel of the same name, about an angel and demon who have grown to love their life on Earth and must reluctantly join forces to prevent impending Armageddon.

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

New on Amazon Prime: Editor’s picks


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

Joshua Rofe’s Lorena presents the salacious case of Lorena and John Wayne Bobbitt. It’s a story everyone knows—Lorena cut off her husband’s penis—but most people stop at the headline. Rofe doesn’t. Lorena goes beyond the case to look at the larger epidemic of domestic violence in America. With interviews from the Bobbitts, doctors, lawyers, advocates, friends, and family, Lorena brings depth and context to a subject that is more than just tabloid fodder. —Eddie Strait
