2018 Amazon Prime Schedule: Dates For New And Returning Shows

The world of streaming TV is expanding at a rapid rate, with more services than ever pumping out a seemingly endless supply of new and exciting content. 2018 won't introduce any overhauls to that new status quo, either, and Amazon in particular is earnestly hoping for several more breakout series to sprout forth as the year goes on. (Especially with Transparent's recent issues.) Thankfully, we now have a good idea of what to expect from Amazon's future.

Below, you'll find Amazon's current programming schedule for 2018, which includes some returning favorites, some new scripted and unscripted series offerings, some sports-related projects and more. What are we most excited about? Probably the TV returns of Castle vet Stana Katic (in Absentia), and The Office's John Krasinski as the titular lead in Jack Ryan. Check it out! (Unless otherwise noted, all shows premiere at 3:01 a.m. ET/12:01 a.m. PT, and new series will be listed in all caps.)

A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
