18. The Spanish Princess
The Spanish Princess is the third adaptation from the books by Philippa Gregory, following on from the highly rated The White Princess and The White Queen. It is a historical fiction series but instead of the typical Tudor story with Henry VIII it is centered around Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope) and her triumph.
With her story rarely told it is an interesting take on a well-known tale. It starts with Catherine, The Princess of Spain being promised the English throne since she was a child and takes you on the journey with her while she creates her mastermind plan to get the throne after she arrives in England.
There is a total of eight episodes with the final episode airing on June 23, 2019. At the start of June, Starz announced that The Spanish Princess would receive an additional eight episodes to finish off Catherine of Aragon’s story. The White Queen and The White Princess only got one season each so I was glad to find out this series was getting more attention.
You can start watching The Spanish Princess, The White Princess and The White Queen now with a Starz subscription on Amazon Channels. For just $8.99 per month you can watch some excellent series and movies, starting with a seven-day free trial!
17. Young Sheldon
Young Sheldon is the spin-off from The Big Bang Theory and follows a young socially impaired Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) with the unique challenges he faces. Jim Parsons, who plays the older version of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory narrates the series.
Sheldon is a child prodigy who is already four grades ahead to start high school with his less intelligent older brother. He struggles to be understood by everybody around him, his family, his classmates, and his neighbors. Living in a state where football and church are dominant isn’t easy for Sheldon when he feels alienated because his skills are in advanced mathematics and science.
With already two successful seasons, Season 3 was announced by CBS to return on Sept. 26 of this year! You can get a CBS All Access subscription through Amazon Channels for $5.99 per month starting with a seven-day free trial.
