Every month without a new season of The Boys on Amazon Prime Video is a frustrating month for me personally, but May is shaping up to be an exciting one for the service nonetheless. Barry Jenkins is following up his award-winning movies Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk with an original series for Amazon called The Underground Railroad, which debuts in May. Also, fans of musicians J Balvin and P!nk should be excited to see the documentaries covering elements of their careers coming to Prime Video as well.
