The advantages granted to Prime customers include free premium shipping and the Amazon Prime Music music offering, which can be used at no additional cost, as well as the film and series flat rate Amazon Prime Video. So you can also access a variety of moving image offers.
The inside digital editorial team summarizes the latest developments relating to the video-on-demand offer from Amazon Prime Video and shows you which new starts you can look forward to in the coming weeks. In doing so, we not only take into account series, but also films that are new to Prime Video’s offering. But before we get into the movie reboots, let’s first take a look at the brand new series.
New series on Amazon Prime Video
Various series restarts are waiting for you on Amazon in December. One of the highlights from December 18th: the premiere of the first season of “El Cid”. It tells the story of Rodrigo Diaz, also known as “Ruy”, the man behind a Spanish legend. The Amazon Original Series shows his rise – from little boy to war hero and from squire to king. In doing so, Rodrigo tries to find his place in the complex Spanish monarchy that tries to control him. “El Cid” gives Prime members insights into the various religious communities that lived side by side in Spain at the time, including Christians, Arabs and Jews, and shows how Ruy managed to arouse the admiration of everyone.
“The Wilds” will also celebrate a series premiere in Germany from December 11th. And at first glance, some of it is reminiscent of “Lost”: A group of young women with teenage ages with different backgrounds are stranded on a desert island after a plane crash. The point here is to fight for survival. The missing learn more and more about each other, about the secrets they keep and about the traumas they have been through. The shared experiences sometimes bring the young women closer together, but fronts are also formed between them. It soon turns out – the girls did not land on this island by accident. Sounds exciting? The following trailer makes you want more.
Are you more of a fan of science fiction adventures? Then you can look forward to the fifth season of the Amazon original “The Expanse” from December 16. It begins with multitudes of people leaving the solar system in search of a new home and huge treasures on the earth-like worlds beyond the ring. The centuries of exploitation of the asteroid belt demands a high price and now the bill is due. The crew of the Rocinante and the leaders of the Inner Planets and the Belt are catching up with the past and they must face personal challenges that have far-reaching implications for the entire solar system.
The Amazon original “Bild.Macht.Deutschland?” There are insights into Germany’s largest and probably most polarizing media brand. For the first time ever, an independent production team was given comprehensive access to the universe of the daily newspaper and its editorial team. The daily editorial work of the team that runs the daily newspaper and one of the German websites with the highest reach (bild.de) is shown. To see from December 18th.
It will be much more fun from December 4th on “Binge Reloaded”. The new parody and comedy show presents itself in the age of streaming services in a contemporary guise. The protagonists slip into the roles of different personalities in real-time media. In short, sketch-like clips, a cross-section of a “fictional” TV evening takes place with recourse to elements of well-known streaming or TV moments and characters. Michael Kessler and Martin Klempnow are among others. A certain similarity to the former ProSieben format “Switch” cannot be ignored.
Further series restarts
Is all this not enough for you? Then you can look forward to many more reboots from the series cosmos that Amazon Prime Video has bought in licensed titles. For example the third season of “4 Blocks” (be sure to watch the first two seasons too!), The first half of the tenth season of “The Walking Dead” or the 18th season of “Family Guy”.

What does Amazon Prime cost?
