Homecoming, which stars Julia Roberts in her first lead TV role, is based on a psychological thriller fictional podcast. Julia plays the character of Heidi, a caseworker at a secret government facility that helps soldiers return to civilian life. If you're a big fan of thrillers and podcasts in general (and let's face it: who isn't?) then this will be right up your street.

Watching Julia in her first lead TV role is obviously a big pull, too. She told us, "I kind of played two characters [in the show] so in that way it was a great fun challenge for me. I heard the podcast and loved it."

Homecoming is available on Prime Video from the 2nd of November.

Carnival Row

The dark, futuristic upcoming Prime TV show centres around a serial killer who preys on mystical creatures. Meanwhile, a detective who's working on the case becomes the prime suspect in the murders.

Cara Delevingne and Orlando Bloom star side-by-side in this fantasy drama, and it's the first time we'll see them both on the big screen together. Cara told us, "We’ve crossed paths before, I’ve seen so many of Orlando’s films and it's always been a dream to work with him. I was so excited to be able to get to work with a friend." Awww.

Carnival Row will be available on Prime Video.

Marvelous Mrs Maisel

The glorious Rachel Brosnahan take will the role of Midge Maisel once again in the late 50s comedy show, and this season is rumoured to be about opening up Midge's world. The star studded cast - which includes Michael Zegen, Marin Hinkle, Tony Shaloub alongside Brosnahan - revealed that they travelled far and wide - including to Paris - to shoot outdoors for this season. Oooooh.
