New Amazon Prime Video Shows and Movies in December 2023

The biggest man on TV, Jack Reacher, is back

Tim Surette

December is the biggest month of the year for Amazon Prime Video, in terms of size of its action heroes, at least. Reacher, the adaptation of Lee Child's dad-famous crime novels about an oversized ex-military policeman who solves cases around America using brain and brawn, returns for its second season on Dec. 15. It's the biggest highlight of new releases coming to Prime Video in December, along with Season 2 of Coach Prime and Eddie Murphy's holiday film Candy Cane Lane.

Below, you'll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video in December, as well as the full list of everything coming to Prime Video and Freevee, the free service that's accessible through Prime Video but doesn't require Prime membership.

Candy Cane Lane (Dec. 1, Prime Video)

If there's a Christmas house decorating competition, Eddie Murphy is there! The Oscar winner headlines Candy Cane Lane, which finds Murphy's Chris signing a bad deal with a shady elf just so he can accomplish his life's dream of winning his neighborhood competition. Too bad he didn't read the fine print, because one of the consequences of signing the contract is that he will turn into a toy figurine. Yes, we're 100% serious. -Philiana Ng [Trailer]

Coach Prime Season 2 (Dec. 7, Prime Video)

The docuseries following Deion Sanders, head coach of the Colorado Buffaloes football team and a former MLB and NFL star, in his first full year at Colorado, where hype meets reality. Following a magical start to the season that made them the talk of the sports world, the Buffaloes ran into trouble when they played some of the top teams in the NCAA. [Trailer]

Reacher Season 2 (Dec. 15, Prime Video)

Amazon's free-range detective series follows a few simple rules that have turned it into one of the streamer's biggest hits: An ex-military police officer with tree trunks for biceps travels the country beating up bad guys, solving crimes, and making wisecracks. In Season 2, Jack Reacher (Alan Ritchson) meets up with his old military police group after one of them is murdered, and they suspect someone is picking them off one by one. Someone's bones are about to get broken. [Trailer]
