Amazon Prime Video has been doing the most of late with some solid announcements and there seems to be no letting up from them. Checkout their May lineup below which again is available to stream instantly or download for offline viewing:
Good Omens, Season 1 – May 31
Good Omens is based on the beloved book by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman which follows an unlikely duo, a fussy Angel (Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex) and a loose-living Demon (David Tennant, Doctor Who) who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
Sneaky Pete, Season 3 – May 10
Sneaky Pete revolves around a con man named Marius Josipovic (Giovanni Ribisi) who assumes the identity of his ex-cellmate, Pete, and uses Pete’s estranged family to try and escape from the past. Who is Marius Josipovic? Marius himself would like to know. He is feeling a ‘pull’ toward the Bernhardt family. But he isn’t part of the family. He’s a charlatan. A fraud. And Marius is conflicted. He is a highly skilled con-man. But the chance to become more like a normal human being is enticing…it also scares him to death. In season three, all the members of the Sneaky Pete family explore their identities; their purpose; where they belong; where they’re going. It’s a dangerous journey. They could lose themselves, or worse – lose their lives.
Fleabag, Season 2 – May 17
Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) is back for a second bite, and this time she is going toe to toe with the man upstairs. In an unexpected twist of fate, our lost little rascal meets a Priest (Andrew Scott) who jolts her into seeing the world in a different way. Picking up a year on, there are still old wounds to unpick and new ones to dress as the next chapter of Fleabag’s life takes her to hell and back. Since the end of the last hilarious series when her entire family rejected her, her darkest secret was revealed and she nearly threw herself in front of a car, she’s back for more laughs than ever.
