April is coming, and with it comes one of the most anticipated TV series of the year, Game of Thrones. You’d be forgiven, then, for expecting all other TV channels and streamers to back off a bit to give HBO’s fantasy epic some space to dominate everyone’s watchlist, but Amazon maintains its small but steady drumbeat of content this month, with a small but promising selection of originals and exclusives.
As well as weekly episodes of American Gods, New Amsterdam and NOW Apocalypse, Amazon Prime Video also welcomes a new season of The Bold Type and Keeping up with the Kardashians, plus the addition of The Tick’s second season and, most promising of all, a fifth outing for Amazon’s longest original series, detective drama Bosch.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in March 2019:

Tick and Arthur both return for Season 2 to defend the city from new villains and old enemies.

But now that the City is ‘safe enough to protect’, Tick and Arthur begin to see they’ve got competition, and that everyone’s got a secret to hide.
