The best Amazon Prime series (June 2024): Prime Video shows, ranked

UPDATED: The best shows on Amazon Prime to watch.

The best Amazon Prime series (June 2024): Prime Video shows, ranked

You may think of Prime Video as a nice extra you get with your Amazon postage Prime membership, but it's big business.

Amazon spent $18.9 billion on music and video content in 2023. And in 2022 The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power reportedly became the most expensive TV show ever made.

UPDATE: Already hoovered up Fallout's first season? The good news is a second has been commissioned. It's going to be a good long wait before it hits our screens, although the core creative team says it is working on getting the second season out as soon as possible. There's even been a suggestion Fallout could continue for as many as five seasons, although with the state of streaming TV as it is, we should all be taking this one season at a time. The rumour is we'll be heading to New Vegas for Fallout season 2, which fans of the game series will already know well.

However, for our money that Lord of the Rings spin-off is far from Prime Video's biggest draw. If you like a slice of genre, and aren't afraid of dining on some geeky content, there are two Prime Video recommendations we regularly come back to. One is our current top-ranked show, The Expanse. It's a smart space sci-fi show. And a case where even though it was cancelled after six seasons, this show doesn't end on a frustrating cliffhanger.

Number two is The Boys, a dark superhero show that skewers the MCU while having an identity all of its own. But if neither floats your boat, and you're not keen on the latest blockbuster, Fallout, just check out the remaining 40-plus top shows below.

Here we have selected only the Prime (Video) cuts. There’s everything in this ever-growing list of Prime Video shows, from award-winning prestige TV (hello, Marvellous Miss Maisel) to superhero shows you really need to be watching (The Boys, Gen V and Invincible are all fantastic).

In fact, it's a real jumbled selection box. We have some comedy, horror, and a good selection of sci-fi and fantasy, where Amazon Prime Video really excels at the moment.

Disagree with our selection? Or think we've forgotten a show that deserves a spot in this hall of fame? Let us know in the box at the bottom of this article. And get voting, too. While we have chosen the best TV shows on Prime Video right now - it’s up to you to help rank them.

The beauty of Amazon Prime - and Netflix - is that these platforms breathe life into previously dead shows, like The Expanse. It's a show about what happens when humans colonise the solar system (spoiler: it ain’t great). Syfy cancelled it after three seasons but Amazon gave The Expanse a new home. Why? Well, for one thing CEO Jeff Bezos is a big fan. We’re glad he did - this is stunning sci-fi and universe-building at its best.

Bosch is a brilliant, easy watch, and is now in its fifth season. It stars Titus Welliver as the titular Harry Bosch, whose acting raises this show above your average police procedural. As does the writing. Overseen by Eric Overmyer, whose credits include The Wire, Treme and Boardwalk Empire, this is a top-quality show.

3. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

Stream now (Prime Video)

The Jack Ryan series of movies, those starring Harrison Ford at least, were a lot of fun. While a prequel movie with Chris Pine stumbled, this alternate TV take is well worth a watch. John Krasinski is effortless as Ryan, a CIA analyst forced into the field. As is The Wire’s Wendell Pierce as Jack Greer, Ryan’s mentor - a role that once belonged to James Earl Jones. Big shoes to fill, then, but he manages it. It’s a little Mission: Impossible lite in places but well worth a watch, especially in 4K.

The Boys is one of the most original takes on the superhero genre we have seen. The concept (based on Garth Ennis' great comic) is that the world is filled with superheroes but they are all, well, dicks. Underneath their shiny, hero image they actually abuse their power and cause havoc in the world. The good news is that there's a team of anti-heroes that can put a stop to them, lead by Karl Urban. This is one gory, violent, hilarious show that's not for the faint hearted.

The second season is darker with the arrival of Stormfront to shake up the superheroes and features an ending of, well, gratuitous portions. As for Season 3 - after a (literally) explosive start, it gets even more surreal from there. Fantastic stuff.

5. The Marvelous Miss Maisel

Stream now (Prime Video)

It was about time a show gave Rachel Brosnahan a chance to shine. After bit parts in movies and a stint on House of Cards, The Marvelous Miss Maisel sees her in fantastic form as a 1950s housewife who decides one day to become a stand-up comic. There’s a lot to love about the show, but Brosnahan’s main performance as ‘Midge’ Maisel steals it - her transformation when she eventually gets on the stage is brilliant to watch.

On the face of it, Vikings seems a little one dimensional: a whole show based on the pillaging, conquering and brutal world of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok. But this is definitely not Game of Thrones on a budget. The character development over the first three seasons is beautifully handled, and Vikings tells what is a simple story really well, even all the way to season 6.

Based on late writer John Le Carre’s spy novel of the same name, here we see Tom Hiddleston as Jonathan Pine, a night manager who is enlisted to find a way into the inner circle of a notorious arms dealer. This is a mini series and plays out like a sumptuous Bond movie.

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s fantastic book Good Omens gets the TV treatment, thanks to a joint production between the BBC and Amazon Studios. The result is a superb six-part series with one of the best acting pairing seen on TV in recent years. David Tennant and Michael Sheen shine as angels Aziraphale and Crowley, and their job is to stave off the impending apocalypse. Fans of Gaiman will love Good Omens. He was deeply involved, as Terry Pratchett asked Gaiman to write the TV show's script before he passed away. A request we are very glad was fulfilled.

It seems a little trite to heap more praise on a show that it is pretty much universally loved but the thing is (looks to camera, with a wry smile), they’re right. Phoebe Waller-Bridge's adaptation of her own one-woman stage show manages to be stunningly crass, utterly hilarious and tear-inducing all at the same time. Yes, Waller-Bridges is perfect as Fleabag but the rest of the cast are just as good, characters rounded with surgical precision.

The Man in the High Castle was one of the first Prime Video Originals and it ran for four seasons, concluding at the end of 2019. It's a fantastic-looking show that is based on Philip K. Dick's novel where in a parallel universe the Nazis won and the changes this makes to the world. By the end of the show it deviates from the book but it's well worth going the distance.

What started off as a spin-off of the successful child assassin movie has mutated into something far better. This is a great show that reveals just what you can do when you allow a premise and characters time to breath. Esme Creed-Miles (daughter of Samantha Morton) is the titular teenage assassin. The show has three seasons now and it's just starting to hit its stride.

Many Star Trek fans approached Picard with caution, after Discovery failed to satisfy many long-term Trekkers. But Patrick Stewart's return to the universe seems, so far, to be a real success. The series takes a slower approach to storytelling, with numerous story threads unravelling slowly over time. The second season is now streaming and is a superb addition to the Star Trek canon.

Amazon announced it has cancelled The Tick, and that can only be because Amazon doesn’t know how to have fun. It is a superhero parody with heart, and a brilliant cast. ‎Peter Serafinowicz is superb as the titular Tick, the superhero without superpowers, playing it without any knowing wink that he is in on the joke. And that’s the brilliance of the show, which really stepped up in the second season. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled after Season 2, despite fans' efforts to get the show revived.

Stream now (Prime Video)

This adaptation of the classic William Gibson novel - who helped create the cyberpunk genre - gets off to a slow start but if you can forgive the (literal) world building, there is a lot to like here. The plot? It's convoluted but is essentially about a gamer (Chloe Grace Moretz) who, while helping her brother, gets embroiled in events that are seemingly tied with the future. It's pretty dense stuff but given its showrunners are Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy (WestWorld), there is a steady hand holding the pen.

Two seasons of proof Alan Ritchson is a much more faithful Jack Reacher than Tom Cruise, who took on the role in the Reacher films. This is the Reacher of the source books by Elmore Leonard, where he's an intimidating and gruff mountain of a man. True to this style, the show features lots of baddies getting their heads knocked together and no-nonsense action. Season two is even better than the first in some respects too.

Launching with a double episode, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of power is a stunning show that is every bit as cinematic as the Peter Jackson movies. Although it's set thousands of years before the events of LOTR, there are plenty of call backs for die hard fans and a new mythology to sink your teeth into.

Both TV shows make our list because they're prime examples of deliciously addictive storytelling, rich characters and mind-bending fantasy.

Pegg's not in it much but when he does turn up it's welcomed and Frost is fantastic as the main thrust of the show.

Unfortunately, this one is just one season only as it hasn't been picked up for a second.

It's pretty rare that a show has been inspired by something other than a book, but this one is based on the paintings of Simon Stålenhag.

It's a lot of fun - a time-travelling series that has hints of Twin Peaks and its big streaming rival's hit show Stranger Things.

Not many spin-offs make it into consideration for our best-of lists. But Gen V certainly does. This is a The Boys spin-off, in which the action moves to Godolkin University, where the next generation of superheroes are raised and trained. It’s no cosy “young adult” alternative to The Boys, though, with the same black streak of violence and oddness struck through its core. Definitely one for fans of the original series to check out.

The second season of Hunters, released in early 2023, sees Al Pacino’s Meter Offerman hunt down Hitler, after finding he is still alive. This show is gory, silly and clearly a little ridiculous. However, it is also engaging, in the vein of a B-movie revenge thriller. A little uneven in spots, but Al Pacino as a Nazi hunter? Surely worth a crack.

Who would have thought back in 1996 when the movie Fargo came out that over 25 years later a TV show based on it would have been on for a decade? Fargo the TV show doesn't share characters with the film, but is based in the same world and has that unmistakeable Fargo vibe. It's now five seasons long, each one critically acclaimed.

After the brilliance of Bojack Horseman for Netflix, creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg headed to Amazon for Undone, an animated show that uses rotoscoping to create its unique look. Undone tackles some of the same themes of Bojack, albeit in a much more dramatic way - its trippy visuals give the whole thing an unreal feel and the likes of Bob Odenkirk, Daveed Diggs and Rosa Salazar star.

The second season of Undone is streaming now and is just as trippy as the first. This show is shaping up to being one of the very beat Amazon Prime series around.

How we choose our best Amazon Prime Video TV show list

The best Amazon Prime series: best Prime Video TV shows, ranked
Image Credit: Prime Video

Like all guides on ShortList, this best Amazon Prime series list was chosen by the editorial team. We started by sifting through the thousands of TV shows available on the service, and distilled these shows by their IMDb ranking which is an indicator that Prime Video uses (Amazon owns IMDb).

Then using our own editorial expertise, where we have near 20 years' of reviewing experience, we watched hours upon hours of shows - many more than what are on this list. If a show hasn't grabbed our attention by the third or fourth episode, then it is unlikely to be on this list.

On the flip of this, sometimes we add in shows that are being shown weekly on the service. They may go into this guide from episode 1 but if there is a severe drop-off in quality then we will reassess their insertion in the round-up and take them out if necessary.

The final say is done by the editor and creator of this list, Marc Chacksfield. He has nearly 20 years experience reviewing movies and show, both online and in magazines. You can read his bio for more information.

For the most part, this Prime Video show list is made up of scripted TV shows - there are some episodic fact-based shows on the site, but we are mainly focusing on prestige television here.

We haven't added any FreeVee content to this list. While the shows on their are decent, they are ad-funded and don't make up this list. And we haven't added anything from any of the Prime Video 'channels' you can get. This is because these are usually paid-for additions to the main Prime Video service.

Finally, the editorial team doesn't have a say on the ranking of this list. It is done by you, the reader. By simply voting a show up or down, you are having your say. Don't panic if a show is new to the list, either. It may not have the thousands of votes of others but our algorithm will match it in the list accordingly.

And if your fave show isn't one of our current pics, then let us know below!
