New Amazon Prime Video Shows and Movies (August 2023)

Close out your summer with Red, White & Royal Blue

Allison Picurro

On Amazon Prime Video, the month of August is all about coming of age. New shows hitting the streaming service this month include The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, which follows a young girl who goes to live with her grandmother on a flower farm after the deaths of her parents, and Harlan Coben's Shelter, about a teen boy whose investigation into the disappearance of his classmate leads to the discovery of dark secrets. At the other end of the tonal spectrum is the rom-com Red, White & Royal Blue, which is set in a world where Uma Thurman is president and her son falls in love with a British prince. 

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

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart (August 4, Prime Video)

Between The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart and Saint X, Alycia Debnam-Carey has really cornered the market on playing the grown-up version of a girl whose family experienced a great loss when she was young. This Australia-set limited series, based on the novel by Holly Ringland, stars Debnam-Carey as the adult version of Alice Hart (played as a child by Alyla Browne), who loses her parents in a mysterious fire at age 9. When she moves in with her grandmother June (Sigourney Weaver) on a flower farm, she learns there are secrets in her family's past that will continue to follow her into adulthood. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Red, White & Royal Blue (August 11, Prime Video)

Based on Casey McQuiston's hit novel, Red, White & Royal Blue is set in a better world where Uma Thurman is president of the United States and her son falls in love with a prince from the British royal family. Imagine the Harry and Meghan story with even more drama. Here's everything to know about the film. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]

Harlan Coben's Shelter (August 18, Prime Video)

Set in the spookiest place on earth (New Jersey), Shelter follows Mickey (Jaden Michael), a teen boy who finds himself wrapped up in the disappearance of a student at his new school. As he and his friends search for her, they begin to uncover dark secrets about their small town, and some secrets about Mickey's own family history, too. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]
