New Amazon Prime Video Shows and Movies in January 2024

Don't miss the new series from The Farewell director Lulu Wang

Kat Moon

Marriages are being tested in the biggest movies coming to Prime Video this month. In the sci-fi thriller Foe, a couple must face separation of astronomical magnitude — one of them is being spent to literal space. The relationship in action comedy Role Play is slightly more contained, though not by much: A husband discovers that his wife has a hidden life as an assassin, and is a wanted killer around the world. 

Also new on Prime Video in January is Lulu Wang's new drama Expats. Musical comedy Hazbin Hotel and adventure series Zorro are arriving on the platform as well. 

Below, you'll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video in January 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. 

Last month's guide: New Prime Video Shows and Movies (December 2023)

Role Play (Jan. 12, Prime Video)

When Dave (David Oyelowo) agreed to do a little role playing with his wife Emma (Kayley Cuoco) for their wedding anniversary, he had no idea just how much experience she had in pretending to be someone else. In fact, pretending to be someone else is Emma's job: She is a skilled assassin with multiple identities, and Emma has kept this profession hidden from Dave for years. But that's no longer possible when she meets a man (Bill Nighy) who instantly recognizes her and the hefty bounty on her head. [Trailer]

Expats (Jan. 26)

The Farewell director Lulu Wang is the creator, director, and writer of this six-part limited series adaptation of Janice Y. K. Lee's novel The Expatriates. Set in 2014 Hong Kong, Expats follows three American women, played by Nicole KidmanSarayu Blue, and Ji-young Yoo, whose lives intersect after a tragedy, and explores the blurred lines between victimhood and culpability. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]
