    Things get lost on Amazon Prime Video. Like its global namesake, the streaming service is a jungle filled with titles. That’s why each month Consequence of Sound puts together a full list of new TV and film titles being dropped into the thick of it.

    May 2020 is no exception. The highly anticipated second season of Homecoming, starring Janelle Monáe, premieres; there’s the debut of Greg Daniels’ other new comedy Upload; and a new docu-series on the DEA drops called The Last Narc.

    Binge-watchers should also make space in their queue for all five seasons of J.J. Abrams’ Alias … and, um, 30 shows and flicks from HBO that include essential series like Succession, Silicon Valley, and Big Little Lies. All free to US customers.


    Not surprisingly, there are a ton of films both new and old being added into the mix. Those of the new batch include Rocketman, The Goldfinch, The Vast of Night, Seberg, and Come to Daddy. There are even a couple new VOD releases, specifically a Valley Girl remake and a new comedy called Arkansas that stars Liam Hemsworth and Vince Vaughn.

    As previously reported, Amazon Prime Video will also play host to the SXSW 2020 Film Collection, which begins on Monday, April 27th and continues for the next 10 days into May. It’s completely free and only requires an Amazon login.

    Check out the entire list below and start stocking up on some snacks. To help round out your streaming sessions, be sure to read our recent guides outlining everything that’s hitting HuluDisney Plus, and Netflix.
