Expand your horizons! Although you do have the option to re-watch the same old shows over and over again, there's no time like the present to check out the new shows on Amazon Prime Video. Almost every week the streamer brings new content to users, and a lot of it is highly rated.

Throughout the month of May, Prime Video has added several new original shows to its platform, including Upload, which stars Canada's own Robbie Amell, and The Great, a satirical history series about Russia's longest-reigning female ruler.

The platform has also been adding more and more classic favourites to its library lately, including Mr. Bean and The Beverly Hillbillies, among others.

Next time you have a day off, use it to dip your toes into uncharted waters and check out at least one of these shows that audiences are absolutely loving on Amazon Prime. If movies are more your speed, there are plenty of those as well!
