What’s new on Amazon Prime Video May 2017?

Amazon Prime Video’s schedule for May is markedly busier than in previous months. The headline act for its streaming service is the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s bestselling American Gods.

We’ve already watched the first episode, set to appear on 1 May 2017 with new episodes due every week through the month, and we’re mightily impressed. You can read our spoiler-free review here.

Alongside American Gods, Amazon will also debut espionage series Patriot on 5 May.

Then on 12 May, the Kevin-Bacon-led I Love Dick will make its debut.
