Amazon's a little tired from fulfilling all your Christmas deliveries, so let's cut it some slack after looking at this fairly light schedule of new Amazon Prime Video releases in January. Billion-dollar corporations need a rest, too! This weekend sees the release of the second and final season of Hunters, TV's best show about a secret society hunting down Nazis in the 1970s. Later this month, Jennifer Lopez gets her rom-com on in Shotgun Wedding, in which she plays a bride whose wedding gets taken hostage by pirates, and I am not even making a joke here. And already out is The Rig, a Scottish supernatural thriller about a mysterious fog that overtakes an isolated oil rig and its crew.

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.

The Rig (Jan. 6, Prime Video)

In terms of stories about mysterious fogs, The Mist and The Fog will always come out on top, but The Rig looks to follow in that great tradition. The series follows the crew of an oil rig stationed off the Scottish coast whose return to the mainland is halted by the arrival of an all-encompassing fog that cuts them off from communication with the rest of the world and quickly proves to be a lot scarier than anything they could've imagined. It's a weird supernatural thriller that'll keep you entertained during these dreary early days of the new year. [Trailer]

Hunters Season 2 (Jan. 13, Prime Video)

Despite starring Al Pacino and being produced by Jordan Peele, Hunters, Prime Video's series about a group of Nazi hunters in 1970s New York who discover a vast conspiracy as they track down Nazis hiding in America, never really took off. But whatever, it's back for its second and final season, and this time the hunters are setting out to find Hitler, who is apparently still alive. OK, sure! [Trailer]

Shotgun Wedding (Jan. 27, Prime Video)

Jennifer Lopez seems committed to giving us at least one kooky marriage-themed rom-com per year. Last year was Marry Me, and this year it's Shotgun Wedding, which Lopez stars in alongside Josh Duhamel. Their characters, Darcy and Tom, are getting married, which is great, but their families are driving them crazy, which is not great! Ugh! All of those little annoyances get put into perspective when they have to fight back against the pirates who ambush their destination wedding. Jennifer Coolidge co-stars as Duhamel's character's mom, which is excellent news. We love Jennifer Coolidge! [Trailer
