New to Amazon Prime Video in September

A series spun off the movie franchise The Purge will stream on Amazon Prime Video from September 5.

Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters in a small city over a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal.

As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.

Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High), Lili Simmons (Ray Donovan), Jessica Garza (Six), Amanda Warren (The Leftovers), Colin Woodell (Unsane), Hannah Anderson (New Mutants) and Lee Tergesen (Oz) star, with William Baldwin (Backdraft) and Fiona Dourif (Curse of Chucky) recurring.

New from September 14 will  be Forever, a comedy about love, commitment and marriage from Parks and Recreation writers Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard.

It stars Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen as a married suburban couple.

For 12 years they’ve had the same conversations, eaten the same meals and taken pleasant vacations at the same rented lake house.

But after June talks Oscar into shaking things up with a ski trip, the pair suddenly find themselves in completely unfamiliar territory.

Other premieres will include: Six Dreams (September 7), which follows three Spanish football league players, two coaches and a club president as they navigate their way through their 2017/18 season; season 2B of Wishenpoof (September 7); and musical ‘toon Pete the Cat (September 21).

  1. The Purge sounds interesting. Another show on Amazon Prime Video worth watching is Lodge 49, it’s excellent :)

  2. But the US Open on Amazon in the UK is even MORE interesting.

  3. I wonder if and when any Kiwi ISP will get into bed with Amazon Prime and offer it as part of its internet package, much like Spark does with Netflix. Perhaps Prime wouldn’t want to “cheapen” its brand by cosy-ing up to a Kiwi Internet provider?

  4. If anything it’s Prime that should be worried about looking cheap. Their interface is atrocious and they seem to have far too much straight-to-DVD stuff and conspiracy material stuff.

  5. I don’t have any issues with the Amazon interface. Works fine for me.

  6. It just looks cheap, in my opinion, Paul. Right down to the random pictures of a card showing ‘season 5’ or whatever for a show when they have the entire thing. This gets at what I’m meaning:

  7. Hey, Trevor. I enjoyed the Purge movies and would like to agree with you but this Deadline review suggests otherwise …
