Coming to Amazon Prime Video in May 2019

Good Omens, a limited series fantasy comedy based on the book by Terry Pratchett and scripted by Neil Gaiman, may be the most anticipated Amazon Prime Original series of the year. Starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant as an angel and demon (respectively) who team up for a quest, it costars Brian Cox, Frances McDormand, Jon Hamm, and Benedict Cumberbatch (as Satan) and debuts for Prime subscribers at the end of May.

Also coming in May are Luca Guadagnino’s heady horror remake Suspiria with Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton and British crime dramas King of Thieves with Michael Caine and Jim Boradbent and Yardie directed by Idris Elba, and there are also new seasons of Amazon Original Sneaky Pete and Fleabag and British shows The Durrells of Corfu and Poldark.

Older titles include romantic comedy Morning Glory with Rachel McAdams, The Constant Gardener with Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz, Mission: Impossible with Tom Cruise, Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, and the 1940 classic The Letter with Bette Davis.
