The Peripheral is back on top of Amazon Prime Video’s Top 10 Shows and Movies list, a testament to the power of its weekly rollout of new episodes every Friday. There’s no binge model here! You’ll just have to watch the show once a week like your great, great grandparents did during the Dust Bowl or whatever. A familiar face has also joined the list: Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan sits at No. 8, a day after the trailer for the upcoming Season 3 premiered. That season is going to be a big one for Prime Video. And America!

The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching. Just because something is popular, that doesn’t mean it’s good, right? And to help you plan what you’ll watch next, we’ve added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.

  • Blacklight (2022) – Liam Neeson is at it again, this time as a fixer for the FBI caught in a conspiracy. (Oct. 24)
