What’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in December 2019?

Amazon Prime Video may not be bringing The Aeronauts or Honey Boy to Prime Video in the UK at the same speed as it did The Report and Brittany Runs a Marathon, but it’s busy kicking off a whole different strategy in December, as the online giant prepares to debut its very first Premier League football coverage, with two batches of matches streaming live.
Those who aren’t sports fans won’t be left wanting, though, with the coming month boasting three equally big players: the return of Vikings and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, plus the first outing for sci-fi The Expanse as an Amazon original.

As they learn a lesson about show business they’ll never forget, Joel struggles to support Midge while pursuing his own dreams. Abe embraces a new mission and Rose learns she has talents of her own.

Based on the best-selling book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer and his fifteen years as Medical Director at the hospital, the show stars Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist) as Dr. Max Goodwin, the institution’s newest medical director who sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care.

Humanity has been given access to thousands of Earth-like planets which has created a land rush and furthered tensions between the opposing nations of Earth, Mars and the Belt. Ilus is the first of these planets, one rich with natural resources but also marked by the ruins of a long dead alien civilisation. While Earthers, Martians and Belters maneuver to colonise Ilus and its natural resources, these early explorers don’t understand this new world and are unaware of the larger dangers that await them.
