Feeling a bit worn out from the daily routine and need a break from reality? Prime Video has got your back with some amazing fantasy shows that are perfect for a little escapism. Here are five of the best to add some magic to your routine.

Carnival Row (2019 —)

Picture a world where mythical beings and humans live side by side, but it's far from harmonious. Carnival Row adds a cool, dark twist to the fantasy genre.

It's a setting filled with unsolved murders, political scheming, and love that's off-limits. The show's eerie ambiance is bound to grab your attention. And with Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne at the helm of the cast, what else could you ask for?

Merlin (2008-2012)

This show takes a fresh look at the classic Arthurian legends. It’s a fun mix of magic, adventure, and humor. Young Merlin’s secret magic in a kingdom where it’s banned creates some sticky situations, and his friendship with Prince Arthur is pure gold. This series is perfect for a lighthearted yet engaging binge.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power ( 2022 —)

Journey back to Middle-earth with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. This epic series is set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It’s a grand spectacle of familiar and new characters, breathtaking landscapes, and the timeless battle between good and evil.

American Gods (2017—2021)

Based on Neil Gaiman 's novel, American Gods is a wild ride. It’s a blend of modern-day America and ancient mythology. The show explores the struggle between Old Gods and New Gods, with a dash of social commentary. It’s unique, it’s bold, and it’s definitely thought-provoking.

Good Omens ( 2019—)

Another gem from Neil Gaiman (and Terry Pratchett), Good Omens is a quirky, heartwarming tale of an angel and a demon teaming up to stop the apocalypse.

The chemistry between the leads, played by David Tennant and Michael Sheen, is just brilliant. This show is funny, charming, and a bit offbeat — the perfect antidote to a dull day.
