Here’s What New on Amazon Prime in May 2020

3 minute read

Update, a new original series set in the technologically-advanced future, leads the slate of fresh offerings from Amazon Prime Video this May. The sci-fi comedy stars Robbie Amell as Nathan Brown, an app developer who chooses to “upload” his existence into a virtual afterlife after a near-death experience. The series begins streaming on May 1. Meanwhile, another original series, Homecoming, returns for its second season on May 22 with another intriguing mystery and a new lead star, Janelle Monáe.

Jimmy O. Yang’s standup comedy special, Jimmy O. Yang: Good Deal will debut on May 8; the Crazy Rich Asians star delves into both pop culture and the personal for some seriously laugh-out-loud moments.

While movie theaters might be closed right now, there are plenty of films available on Prime for a movie night at home. Elton John’s dazzling musical biopic, Rocketman, drops on May 22, while Seberg, The Goldfinch, and The Hustle also join the platform this month.

Here are all the series and movies available on Amazon Prime Video this month.
