The Wheel of Time
Fans of fantasy, rejoice! The epic sprawling world from the most popular fantasy series of all time - with over 90 million books sold - has been adapted for TV. And it’s a world full of magic that only certain women can access.
The first set of episodes of The Wheel of Time are already available on Amazon Prime. The following episodes will be available each Friday, leading up to the season finale on December 24.
Hanna Season 3
Hanna Season 3 continues the journey of an extraordinary young woman, played by Esmé Creed-Miles, who was created by the sinister organisation Utrax and trained to be an assassin.
Hanna is now secretly trying to destroy Utrax from the inside but begins to uncover not only a world-changing agenda but the true power behind Utrax that stands between her and freedom.
Season 3 of Hanna is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video now.
The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage a Trois
Clarkson, Hammond and May return during the festive period to dish up another slice of fun car-carnage, comedy and adventure with a French twist. Va va voom!
Amazon’s description of the series reveals:
“In this second Lockdown Special, the trio dive into the bizarre world of French car culture. On an epic road trip starting in the Welsh hills, they dish up a hair-raising mountain climb, bomb defusals, propellor powered cars, helicopter stunts and the most thrilling race of their lives before reaching the English Channel for a jaw dropping medieval climax. And a soupcon of French art house cinema.”
The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage a Trois premieres on Prime Video on December 17.
Alex Rider Season 2
Alex Rider (Otto Farrant) returns for a second series on Prime Video, as the teenage spy is recruited by MI6’s Department of Special Operations.
This time he’ll have to unravel a sinister political plot with global repercussions. The answers may lie in tech billionaire Damian Cray’s latest product, the global phenomenon video game Feathered Serpent.
Season 2 is based on Eagle Strike – the fourth book in the Alex Rider series written by Anthony Horowitz, which have sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.
Alex Rider is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video from December 3
