Along with Netflix and Hulu, Amazon Prime Video is one of the leading streaming platforms with an award-winning collection of original films and TV series as well as buzzworthy acquisitions that have crossed over from the U.K. In the 13 years since it first launched in September 2006 with its pilot TV program, the service has found its footing with popular series like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and its Jack Ryan series adaptation. It has also stormed the Primetime Emmys, with the former becoming the first streaming series to win the Outstanding Comedy Series prize.   

Now, with people across the country looking for things to binge-watch after being forced to shelter in place or encouraged to practice social distancing, ET has put together a guide to the best TV shows currently streaming on the platform.
