December’s really what we’re hanging on for, Amazon Prime Video-wise. That’s when the new season of The Expanse arrives. November though, does have a couple of likely streaming candidates in the form of dark comedy Wayne, which, with its teen-road-trip and nihilist violence vibe, sounds like just the thing for a fan of Channel 4’s excellent The End of the F***ing World. There’s also the fifth and final season of Syfy’s The Magicians, plus new Alan Ball film Uncle Frank, starring Paul Bettany, which had a warm reception at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
As the sneak-release of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm shows, Amazon Prime Video is capable of surprising us. In addition to the confirmed new November releases below, there will be more on their way which we’ll add as and when they arrive.
