Are you trying to figure out what to watch on Amazon Prime Video this weekend? The streaming service isn’t adding a lot of new content on May 16 or 17 but you will be able to watch the fifth season of Poldark, meaning the complete series will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video this weekend!

The historical drama, based on the novel series of the same name written by Winston Grahame and starring Aidan Turner, follows Captain Ross Vennor Poldark as he returns to Cornwall from the American War of Independence.

Poldark is a great way to cure your Droughtlander if you’re already lamenting the loss of Outlander after the thrilling Season 5 finale that aired last weekend. Why not dive into a new romantic period drama in the interim?

More from Amazon

If Poldark isn’t your cup of tea, there are other options to watch on Amazon Prime Video this weekend. All five seasons of J.J. Abrams and Jennifer Garner’s hit spy thriller series Alias are now available to stream alongside Kristen Stewart’s latest film, Seberg, about the real-life political activist and actress Jean Seberg.

Also available to watch is the new docuseries The Last Narc. It tells the story of the infamous murder of a DEA agent. It is considered to be the most notorious murder in the war on drugs and is a good series to watch if you’re a fan of Narcos or learning more about the cartel.
