What’s new on Amazon Prime Video (September 2018)

Each month, Amazon adds a healthy dose of fresh content, providing viewers with a significant number of new and interesting things to watch. With so much new stuff, it can be hard to know what to watch without doing extensive research. Never fear, streaming enthusiasts and Amazon Fire TV owners: If you’re looking for the best of what’s new on Amazon Prime Video this August and September, we’re here to help.

September brings the premiere of Amazon Studios and BBC co-production King Lear, a modern retelling of the famous Shakespeare tragedy. The series’ star-studded ensemble cast is led by Sir Anthony Hopkins as the titular king, whose efforts to divide his kingdom among his daughters meet with tragic results as he descends into madness. Joining Hopkins in the cast are Emma Thompson, Emily Watson, Jim Broadbent, Andrew Scott, Jim Carter, and Christopher Eccleston, among others familiar faces.

Also debuting in September is the Amazon Original Series Forever, which casts Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph as a suburban married couple who decide to get out of the daily routine they’ve followed for the past 12 years. Their decision ends up being a bigger one than either of them intended. The series is created by Emmy-winning writer-producers Alan Yang (Master of None) and Matt Hubbard (30 Rock).

There aren’t too many other notable Amazon Originals arriving in September on the movie or television fronts, but there are still a lot of fresh arrivals to get Amazon Prime subscribers excited. Supernatural comedies Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II become available early in the month, as do two very different “Best Picture” nominees: Jerry Maguire and There Will Be Blood.

Below, you’ll find the full list of everything that’s new on Amazon Prime Video in August and September, with our recommended films and shows in boldface. And if you’re still not sure what to watch, we’ve got a list of the best movies streaming on Amazon, as well as a list of the best TV shows streaming on Amazon, to help you make an informed choice. If Amazon isn’t your only go-to streaming service, we’ve also got helpful articles on what’s best on Netflix and the best films on HBO‘s streaming service.
