Prodigal Son premieres tonight on FOX. Will you be able to watch it live with Amazon Video? Here are all your viewing options on the night and afterward.
Prodigal Son is one of the newest shows hitting primetime TV this fall. It’s also one of the first to premiere, following 9-1-1 Season 3’s premiere on FOX. There are high chances you’re looking at how to watch the series and whether Amazon Video will be an option.
Sadly, if you want to watch live, Amazon Prime Video won’t be an option. This is all due to licensing agreements. FOX is now owned by Disney, which also owns Hulu. You’ll be able to watch through Hulu’s live TV on FOX or directly via FOX online and a few other live streaming options. Amazon Video isn’t an option for live streaming.
The good news is that you can watch afterwards. It’s already possible to pre-order the season pass for Prodigal Son. This gets you the full season, with episodes being available the day after they air in the United States. You’ll get the episode direct in your library, and there’s no need to have an Amazon Prime subscription to access.
Prodigal Son stars Tom Payne as Malcolm Bright. Malcolm is gifted as someone who knows how a criminal’s mind works. That gift isn’t just happenstance. It’s based on living with a serial killer. His father, played by the brilliant Michael Sheen, is known as “The Surgeon,” a notorious serial killer who is now locked away.
When someone seems to be copying “The Surgeon,” Malcolm knows that it’s a copycat. Now he needs to help figure out who the murderer is, and that could mean heading back to where it all began.
If you love crime dramas like Criminal Minds, this is going to be a series for you. Check out the trailer to get a sense of the series.
Want to make sure you can watch Prodigal Son live? Here are all the live streaming details you could possibly need for tonight, but remember to grab your season pass on Amazon Video so you get the digital episodes immediately.
