The Lord of the Rings. Those are the only five words you need to know about Amazon Prime Video this September, as the online giant debuts its epic investment in a new fantasy saga set before the events of JRR Tolkien’s novels. But there’s original entertainment closer to home, too, from a horror and a sporting docuseries.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video UK in September 2022:
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power – 2nd September
Amazon’s fantasy epic takes us back to JRR Tolkien’s fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history, thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books. Beginning in a time of relative peace, the series follows an ensemble cast of characters, both familiar and new, as they confront the long-feared re-emergence of evil in Middle-earth. Morfydd Clark and Robert Aramayo star as a young Galadriel and Elrond.
Tenet – 9th September
Christopher Nolan’s ambitious, enjoyably dizzying time-twister is at its best in motion.
Flight/Risk – 9th September
Flight / Risk follows everyday people who find themselves in the midst of a global tragedy when two Boeing 737 Max planes crashed only five months apart in 2018 and 2019. This powerful documentary is told through the perspective of affected family members, their legal teams, whistleblowers, and Pulitzer-winning Seattle Times journalist Dominic Gates.
A Private Affair: Season 1 – 16th September
In the late 1940s in Galicia, a daring young upper-class woman with the soul of a policeman, Marina Quiroga (Aura Garrido), sets out to hunt down the serial killer who has been stalking the city for months, and she does so with the help of her faithful butler, Hector (Jean Reno). A discreet and helpful man whose sensitivity and audacity always place him at the key point of the investigation. Together they will fight against all obstacles to achieve it and neither the gender prejudices of the time, nor the resistance of the new commissioner or the attempts of Marina’s mother to marry her off, will prevent them from finally discovering the truth.
Goodnight Mommy – 16th September
When twin brothers arrive home to find their mother’s demeanor altered and face covered in surgical bandages, they begin to suspect the woman beneath the gauze might not be their mother.
The Grand Tour Presents: A Scandi Flick – 16th September
In the first episode of Season 5 and their first post-pandemic road trip, Jeremy, Richard and James head for the icy wastes of the Scandinavian Arctic Circle. At the wheel of their three favourite rally cars the boys embark on a catastrophe-filled adventure that takes in Cold War submarine bases – frozen lake racetracks, crashes and ski resort chaos as they drag their homemade houses from the coast of Norway to the Russian Border.
Prism: Season 1 – 21st September
Prisma is a coming-of-age drama series centred on the complex relationship among identity, aspirations, physical appearance, and sexual orientations in a group of teenagers from Latina, a small town in the Roman province. The series tells the story of twin brothers Marco and Andrea (played by Mattia Carrano), identical to all appearances, but profoundly different in the turmoil they face. Their journey of self-discovery will be both joyful and unruly and will involve their whole group of friends, as they are all trying to find their place in an ever-changing world.
Academy Dreams: Leeds United – 23rd September
This six-part series, narrated by Vinnie Jones, follows the Leeds United FC Thorp Arch academy during the 2021-2022 season.
September Mornings: Season 2 – 23rd September
In Cassandra’s life, everything turned upside down since the arrival of Gersinho, her son. Her life has totally changed and, in this new season, the feeling of being out of control deepens. A reencounter with her past after ten years, the conflicts in her relationships and the financial challenges that put her achievements at risk push Cassandra to her limits. Now, all of Cassandra’s certainties seem to melt into thin air.
Bill & Ted Face the Music – 24th September
Bill and Ted’s third-best adventure is still funnier and fresher than we ever dreamed.
Jungle: Season 1 – 30th September
Jungle follows the connected lives of several strangers, each facing their own struggle, viewed through the prism of UK rap and drill music, and giving a perspective on an often unseen world. Frequently misunderstood, it’s a world where one law governs everything: only the strongest will survive. As the strangers’ worlds begin to unravel around them, they come to the realisation that every action, no matter how small, has a consequence.
My Best Friend’s Exorcism – 30th September
The year is 1988. High school sophomores Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. But after an evening of skinny-dipping goes disastrously wrong, Gretchen begins to act… different.
