What’s new on Amazon Prime Video this week, June 1-5?
As it is the start of a brand new month, there is lots of new content being added to Amazon Prime Video this week of June 1 to June 5.
On Monday, multiple films and several seasons will be added to the catalog. There’s more to come at the end of the week.
Amazon Prime Video this week: Dirty Dancing, The L Word, and more
Out of the many new films being added to Amazon Prime Video this week, Dirty Dancing, How to Train Your Dragon, and Shrek Forever After are perhaps the ones most of note.
All three movies are perfect for family viewing, except maybe Dirty Dancing. But you’ll be able to keep the young ones entertained with How to Train Your Dragon and Shrek Forever After! If you haven’t seen How to Train Your Dragon before, it’s a sweet story that went on to spawn a successful franchise. The other Shrek and Dragon films are available to rent or purchase from Amazon Video.
Amazon will also make several sample seasons of various shows available for viewing as a way to encourage its customers into subscribing to Amazon Video Channels. You can watch other seasons of all shows through the respective streaming services.
Just in time for Pride Month, the first season of The L Word will be available along with the first season of the recent spin-off series, The L Word: Generation Q. The series is all about the lives of women from the LGBTQ+ community.
Work in Progress Season 1 will also be available to stream. The series is about a self-identified queer woman who embarks on a transformative relationship.
Also arriving this week is the action-thriller film, Takers (2010), starring Idris Elba, Hayden Christensen, and Paul Walker. It will begin streaming on June 3.
Finally, on Friday, June 5, a new Amazon Original comedy special from Gina Brillon called The Floor is Lava will begin to stream.
