New Amazon Prime Video Movies and Shows (September 2022)

There's more than Lord of the Rings, if you can believe that

September is a huge month for Amazon Prime Video, with the launch of the bajillion-dollar series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and the history-making broadcast of Thursday Night Football, the first in a bajillion-dollar contract with the NFL. That's two bajillion dollars right there! A lot of cheddar for you and me, but a mere "investment" for Jeff Bezos. 

But there are other new shows and movies on Prime Video this month, including the upcoming horror-comedy My Best Friend's Exorcism and the stylish and musically oriented crime drama Jungle

Below you'll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video in September, 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 Best New Shows and Movies on Prime Video in September

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (Sept. 1, Prime Video)

Want to see what half a billion dollars looks like? Amazon's most expensive bet since same-day delivery is this eight-episode series set in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world during the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the popular trilogy. But hey, there are still dwarves, elves, and orcs, as well as details on the forging of the Rings of Power and Sauron's rise. The first two episodes premiered Thursday, Sept. 1 at 9 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. PT before moving to Fridays at midnight ET and 9 p.m. PT for subsequent episodes. Yet another reason the left coast is the best coast. [Trailer]

Thursday Night Football (Sept. 15, Prime Video)

"Streaming will never replace broadcast TV because broadcast TV has live sports." Streaming TV: "Not so fast there, bub." Following a flurry of exclusive deals with MLB and soccer, streamers are working their way into other sports, and Prime Video landed the biggest of them all with exclusive rights to the NFL's Thursday Night Football. Exclusive as in you can't watch it anywhere else. The very well-paid Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit will be in the booth. The first game is a great one, too, with the San Diego Chargers heading to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs. The AFC West is gonna be wild!

Goodnight Mommy (Sept. 16, Prime Video)

If there's something good from another country, we want it. This adaptation of the 2014 Austrian horror film Goodnight Mommy stars Naomi Watts as the mommy of two twin boys, who begin to suspect that the mommy they came home to — who is now covered in bandages obscuring her face and is acting a little funny — might not be their real mommy. If you are squeamish about peeling off bandages, you might want to skip this one. [Trailer]

Jungle (Sept. 30, Prime Video)

This British crime drama is set in the near-future and follows a few strangers who get into violent trouble. But the real draw is the heavy vibe, which uses drill and trap music, gritty and experimental visuals, a cyberpunk-lite setting, and rapped dialogue (!!!) for something truly unique. It's like Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet, except instead of Leo DiCaprio talking in Shakespearean English, its young gangsters are spittin' fire. [Trailer

My Best Friend's Exorcism (Sept. 30, Prime Video)

Do we even need to blurb a movie with this title? My Best Friend's Exorcism, based on a book, is a playful horror romp set in the 1980s following two high school sophomores who run into trouble when one of them gets possessed. Crimped hair, Lacoste shirts, and projectile vomiting. Fantastic. Bonus points: TV Guide favorite Chris Lowell stars. [Trailer]
