May 2022 represents the calm before the storm for Amazon Prime Video. Early June will see the arrival of the much-hyped third season of The Boys. Before all that, however, Prime has some other streaming goodies to tide you over.

This month is highlighted by a handful of intriguing original series. Season two of Amazon’s sleeper hit The Wilds premieres on May 6. This pulpy mystery series about a group of teenage girls marooned on an island is Prime Video’s version of Lost or Yellowjackets so give it a watch if that kind of thing sounds up your alley. Also arriving on May 6 is the true crime docuseries The Unsolved Murder of Beverly Lynn Smith.

Canada’s finest comedy goobers The Kids in the Hall return in a rebooted version of their sketch series on May 13. The week after that J.K. Simmons will try his hand at sci-fi once again with Night Sky on May 20. There aren’t any Amazon Original movies to write home about this month. But May 1 sees the arrival of some fun library titles like Independence Day, Fargo, Shrek, Platoon, and more.

Here is everything else coming to Amazon Prime Video this month. And since the free Prime Video channel IMDb TV just rebranded as Freevee, we’ll go ahead and include those offerings too!
