While broadcast networks are struggling for new content, Amazon Prime Video has you covered with exciting additions in May 2020.

With TV productions shutting down, May is going to be a quieter than normal month for broadcast networks. However, streaming services still have plenty of content. Amazon Prime Video has its list of content for May 2020, and there really is something for everyone.

The Amazon Originals are certainly a talking point for the month. It all kicks off with Upload, a new dramedy that will have you giggling from start to finish. While there’s a lot of humor, there is also a lot of heart and a mystery to solve. This is one for Robbie Amell fans and for those who just like great TV.

More from Amazon

Speaking of great TV, Homecoming has its second season dropping towards the end of the month. The trailer has everyone talking, and it’s clear we have a huge mystery to unravel throughout the next batch of episodes. Who is our woman in the boat?

For those who prefer movies, Amazon Prime Video has The Vast of Night premiering. The movie was originally going to get a theatrical run during the middle of the month, but those plans have been shelved. Instead of pushing everything back, the 1950s sci-fi movie is heading straight to Prime Video.

There are also some 2019 blockbuster movies finally heading to Amazon Prime Video. The biggest one is going to be Rocketman, which is the biographical movie about Elton John. If you haven’t checked this one out yet, get your membership ready for the end of the month.

Poldark fans will also be happy with the arrival of Season 5 during the middle of the month. Now is the time to binge-watch the first four seasons to get ready for the final instalment in the series.
