New on Prime Video highlights 

 The Wilds season 2 – May 6 

The Wilds season 2 is Prime Video’s dystopian teen drama, which will be coming back with its second season this May. The show follows a group of teenage girls who find themselves stranded on a deserted island after a plane crash. Told through flashbacks and modern-day sequences, the series slowly reveals all is not what it seems as it turns out they are part of a huge social experiment. Season 2 is set to pick up where we left off with the girls, as well as focusing on the tantalizing reveal at the end of the first outing that there is a whole other location involved in the social experiment. Under the code name The Twilight of Adam, the latest series will introduce a parallel island of teenage boys to the mix.

The show follows Harry Bosch’s life after leaving the LAPD and becoming a private investigator. He finds himself working with his one-time enemy, attorney Money Chandler, on a number of cases. His daughter Maddie has begun her own career in the LAPD, dealing with the legacy her father has left her at the force. Bosch Legacy is coming to Amazon Freevee, which is the new name for IMDb TV, the ad-supported video on-demand service. The service is included in the Prime Video membership and is available to stream via the platform.
