The best Amazon Prime original series right now
Emma, Marie, and Cate stand together in Gen V.

One of the reasons that Amazon Prime Video hasn't quite captured the zeitgeist like Netflix, Max, or Hulu is that the best Amazon Prime original series just aren't quite as critically acclaimed or culturally popular. Even though Prime Video trails only Netflix in subscriber count, the original content library doesn't quite excite people the same way.

Prime Video's first show, Transparent, won multiple Emmys, but it has struggled to find its culture-capturing hit like Stranger Things. But with a heavier investment in original programming recently, Prime Video is working to close the gap both in quantity and quality. As more shows release, we're here to keep you up to date on the best Amazon Prime original series.
We’ve also rounded up the best Netflix original series and the best Hulu original series if Prime Video doesn’t have the originals you’re looking for.
