What’s new on Amazon Prime Video in South Africa in May 2019
If you’ve never watched the messy masterpiece that is Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag, you’ve still got time to catch up on S1, which is currently streaming on Prime Video, before Season 2 lands on 17 May!
And, as all Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett fans will be at great pains to remind everyone they cross paths with in May, it’s also Good Omens month, with the highly anticipated series finally hitting our shores on the 31st.
Here are all the Prime Originals for South African subscribers to look forward to in the month of May.
Sneaky Pete S3: Friday, 10 May
Sneaky Pete, created by Brian Cranston and starring Giovanni Ribisi, revolves around a con man named Marius Josipovic (Ribisi) who assumes the identity of his ex-cellmate, Pete, and uses Pete’s estranged family to try and escape from the past.
Who is Marius Josipovic? Marius himself would like to know. He is feeling a “pull” towards the Bernhardt family. But he isn’t part of the family. He’s a charlatan. A fraud.
And Marius is conflicted. He is a highly skilled con-man. But the chance to become more like a normal human being is enticing… it also scares him to death.
In Season 3, all the members of the Sneaky Pete family explore their identities; their purpose; where they belong; where they’re going. It’s a dangerous journey. They could lose themselves, or worse – lose their lives.
All 10 new episodes land on Prime Video worldwide on 10 May 2019.
Fleabag S2: Friday, 17 May
Fleabag (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) is back for a second bite, and this time she is going toe to toe with the man upstairs. In an unexpected twist of fate, our lost little rascal meets a priest (Andrew Scott) who jolts her into seeing the world in a different way. Picking up a year on, there are still old wounds to unpick and new ones to dress as the next chapter of Fleabag’s life takes her to hell and back.
Since the end of the last hilarious series, when her entire family rejected her, her darkest secret was revealed and she nearly threw herself in front of a car, she’s back for more laughs than ever.
Joyful, bleak, poignant and sucker-punch funny, the original cast is joined by a car-crash of new characters as we delve further into the world of Fleabag. With hope and faith at the core of Season 2, our heroine finds herself in the midst of a battle she is determined to win: Fleabag vs God.
Good Omens: Friday, 31 May
Good Omens is based on the beloved book by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, which follows an unlikely duo, a fussy Angel (Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex) and a loose-living Demon (David Tennant, Doctor Who) who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth and are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon.
But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
