New Amazon Prime Video Shows and Movies (April 2023)

The spy drama Citadel wants to be Prime Video's next huge thing

Tim Surette

The new shows and movies coming to Amazon Prime Video in April portend a month when I will spending a lot of time watching Prime Video. In addition to the final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which will premiere April 14, the following weeks see the debut of a new take on Jeremy Irons' 1988 classic Dead Ringers, this time starring Rachel Weisz as the twin gynecologists, as well a  the new series Citadel, which is just the start of a new international spy franchise from the Russo brothers, starring Priyanka Chopra and Richard Madden. 

Below, you'll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video in April, as well as the full list of everything coming to Prime Video and Freevee, the free service that's accessible through Prime Video but doesn't require Prime membership.

Jury Duty Season 1 (April 7, Freevee)

If you were on Nathan Fielder's The Rehearsal, and the situation you wanted to practice was jury duty, it might look like this. An entirely staged instance of jury duty is fake to everyone but one guy, who's determined to try his best to do our legal system justice. Everyone else is an actor — including the judge, lawyers, and jury members. Pauly Shore won't be there, but James Marsden will be, and he plays a version of himself who desperately wants to get out of jury duty. This looks wild. [Trailer]

On a Wing and a Prayer (April 7, Prime Video)

What if Sully, but the hero pilot was just some guy sitting in the front seat? Dennis Quaid stars in this made-for-streaming based-on-a-true-story film about a man who had to land a plane with his family on board after the pilot became incapacitated. Clear the runway for schmaltz! [Trailer]

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 5 (April 14, Prime Video)

The final season of Prime Video's Emmy-winning comedy sees Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) on the cusp of superstardom and... well, that's about all we know and can glean from the trailer. But if you like fancy outfits and hats with a peppering of fast-talking and interrupting and a dabble of quality performances from Tony Shalhoub, Alex Borstein, and Marin Hinkle, then you'll be fine. [Trailer

Dead Ringers (April 21, Prime Video)

What's better than one Rachel Weisz? That's right, two Rachel Weiszes. Dead Ringers is a modern, gender-flipped take on David Cronenberg's film of the same name, starring Weisz in the roles originally played by Jeremy Irons. She plays the toxically co-dependent twin gynecologists (what a collection of words) Elliot and Beverly Mantle, who, let's say, aren't afraid to violate the Hippocratic Oath in order to challenge misogyny in women's health care. Consider us on board. -Allison Picurro [Trailer

Citadel (April 28, Prime Video)

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power may be Amazon's most expensive series, but Citadel may be its most ambitious. The action-thriller produced by the Russo brothers stars Game of Thrones' Richard Madden and Quantico's Priyanka Chopra as spies who work for Citadel, an agency "loyal to no country," as Stanley Tucci mic drops in the trailer. Eight years after being double crossed and losing all memory of who they were, they're pulled back into Citadel to probably save the world or something. If that sounds like a lot, it's because it is, but it gets a lot more "a lot." Four international spin-off series, which will be locally produced in different languages and feature stories that are interconnected with the other series, are also planned to expand the universe, Marvel style. Russo it up, Russo brothers! [Trailer
