What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s everything coming to Amazon’s Prime Video in September 2022

September is arguably the biggest month ever for Amazon’s Prime Video, which will premiere the long-awaited “The Lord of the Rings” prequel series “The Rings of Power” and kick off exclusive coverage of NFL Thursday Night Football.

Coming two decades after Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy reaped nearly $3 billion at the global box office, the first season alone of “The Rings of Power” (Sept. 2) — based on the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien — reportedly cost nearly half a billion dollars, and Amazon is planning an ambitious five-season run.

Taking place in the Second Age of Middle Earth, thousands of years before the events of “Lord of the Rings,” the series will reveal how the kingdoms and alliances of men, elves and dwarves were forged — along with the magical rings — and detail the rise of an evil that their world has never before seen. The sprawling cast includes Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo, Owain Arthur, Sophia Nomvete, Ismael Cruz Cordova and Nazanin Boniandi.

The first two episodes will drop at once, with new episodes coming every Friday. The trailers look spectacular, and it should be interesting to see how “Rings” fares in a nearly head-to-head battle with another fantasy blockbuster, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” prequel series “House of the Dragon.”


has committed even more money ($13.2 billion over 10 years) for exclusive rights to the most lucrative programming in the U.S. — NFL football. While Prime Video has streamed 11 Thursday-night games every season since 2017, this is the first time the games won’t air anywhere else. Prime Video will stream 15 exclusive regular-season games Thursday Night Football games starting Sept. 15, with the Chiefs hosting the Chargers.

The rest of Prime’s September lineup sort of pales in comparison, but includes the documentary movie “Flight/Risk” (Sept. 9), about the two crashes of Boeing 737 Max jetliners; the Italian coming-of age drama series “Prisma” (Sept. 21); and Season 2 of the trans family drama “September Mornings” (Sept. 23).

Prime Video also has “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” movie trilogies, and is adding movies such as “Fight Club,” “He Got Game,” “Legally Blonde” and “The Silence of the Lambs” (all Sept. 1), as well all five seasons of the beloved high-school football drama “Friday Night Lights” (Sept. 1).

Here’s the complete list of what’s coming, as of Aug. 21 (release dates are subject to change):
