What’s new on Amazon Prime in May 2022!

There are plenty of new shows and movies to choose from on Prime in May, so it’s no surprise that many of them are remakes, reboots, and sequels. Two terrific dramas wrap up their seasons and a small amount of fresh material.

This month’s most eagerly anticipated show is Last Flag Flying (a Prime Original movie). Three Vietnam soldiers (Steve Carell (Space Force), Bryan Cranston (Your Honor), and Laurence Fishburne) reconnect to bury one of their sons in a heartbreaking and often humorous drama. Filmmaker Richard Linklater’s film serves as a follow-up to the legendary 1973 picture. Amazon released Rocky and Bullwinkle: The New Adventures, Season 1A, which brought the lovable flying squirrel and his befuddled moose pal back to entertain a new generation of children.

So, let us know which shows and movies you plan to watch in May 2022 by leaving a comment below. As is customary with Amazon Originals, you get all of these for free with your membership.
