What's New On Amazon Prime For August 2017

The Tick headlines the month's additions.


August is here, and that means a flood of new content on the various streaming services. Amazon Prime's August lineup was previously announced, and the most notable releases include some of its new original series.

Among those is The Tick (August 25), the new superhero show that first saw a pilot episode released last summer. It stars Peter Serafinowicz in the titular role and follows the story of an "accountant with no superpowers as he teams up with an unlikely superhero to stop villains from taking over." For a better idea of what to expect, you can check out a recent trailer for The Tick; the show itself will be available in HDR for those with compatible displays.

Another new Amazon series is kids show Lost in Oz (August 4), a "contemporary re-imagining of L. Frank Baum's extraordinary universe." There's also Comrade Detective (August 4), a "cop spoof based on the 1980s Romanian TV series--a sleek and gritty police show that promoted Communist ideals and inspired a deep nationalism."

Other additions during August include a pair of Bill and Ted movies (August 1), the first five Saw films (August 1), Superbad (August 4), and Nick Offerman & Megan Mullally: Summer of 69: No Apostrophe (August 17). You can check out a complete list of what's coming in August below.
