The Grand Tour
Type:
Documentary, Comedy, Travel
Release Date: 2016-Present
Starring: Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May

This hilarious documentary series follows its three charismatic hosts as they travel by any means necessary, ribbing each other mercilessly along the way.

Lore
Type: Documentary, Horror, Animation, Drama
Release Date: 2017-Present
Starring: Aaron Mahnke, Adam Goldberg, Campbell Scott

An anthology series, each episode in Lore takes on a story from common folklore and uncovers the truth about the source of such legends to terrifying effect. Based on a podcast of the same name, this docu-series has suffered a bit of a second-year slump, but overall is fantastic in its execution and highly addictive.

The Man in High Castle
Type: Drama, Science-Fiction, Thriller, Fantasy
Release Date: 2015-Present
Starring: Rufus Sewell, Luke Kleintank, Alexa Davalos

A future that never was, The Man in High Castle explores the dark possibility of what could have happened to society had the allied forces lost WWII. With gorgeous cinematography and stellar performances, there’s no question as to why this series is one of Amazon’s biggest hits.

Bosch
Type: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Release Date: 2014-Present
Starring: Titus Welliver, Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino

With the very charismatic Titus Welliver at its helm, Bosch is the story of a detective willing to do whatever it takes in the pursuit of justice. Based on a book series by author Michael Connelly, Bosh is partly a redemption story and part revenge.

The Romanoffs
Type: Drama
Release Date: 2018-Present
Starring: Aaron Eckhart, Christina Hendricks, Isabelle Huppert

A group of 8 people, seemingly not connected, believe that they are descendants of the Russian royal family. This truly remarkable series premiered last month and gives one a Sense8 type feeling with its disjointed yet compelling storylines.

Homecoming
Type: Thriller, Drama
Release Date: 2018-Present
Starring: Julia Roberts, Bobby Cannavale, Stephan James

When Heidi Bergman, a former caseworker, is approached by an auditor about her past life as a transition counselor, she is forced to reconcile her memories with what really happened there.

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
Type: Drama, Action & Adventure, Thriller
Release Date: 2018-Present
Starring: John Krasinski, Abbie Cornish, Wendell Pierce

In Jack Ryan, a very buff John Krasinski steps into the role of the title character, CIA operative Jack Ryan. This story of international intrigue is loosely based on the book series by Tom Clancy and has already been renewed for a second season.

 The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Type: Comedy, Drama
Release Date: 2017-Present
Starring: Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen

I know I’m not the only one who is chomping at the bit for this witty fast-talking 1950s dramedy to come back for its sophomore season. Get in my eyeballs, already! This world is one in which showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino’s characters were born to live. Trust me, this one’s 100 percent worth it.
