The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has been dethroned! In a rather shocking change since the last time we checked in on Amazon Prime Video’s Top 10 list, the new sci-fi series The Peripheral has taken the top spot from The Rings of Powera little over a week after the fantasy epic’s Season 1 finale and almost two months since it debuted at No. 1. Outer Range has also joined the list after a long time off, because singing cowboys and giant holes are cool.

The most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are below, but we’ll also chime in on whether or not they’re worth watching. Just because something is popular, that doesn’t mean it’s good, right? And to help you plan what you’ll watch next, we’ve added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.
