In March 2017, Amazon released five pilots for their subscribers to watch. One of the most popular will likely be Budding Prospects which is a show set in the early 1980’s. With the success of Stranger Things, also set in the 1980’s, it will likely be the case that we see a number of shows from this time period in the near future. Unfortunately, you can only watch the pilot as the entire first season has yet to be released on Amazon Prime.
Budding Prospects is set in 1983, when three hapless city boys move from urban San Francisco to the stunning wilderness of Northern California and harvest a crop of illegal marijuana to the tune of half a million dollars. Oscar nominee Terry Zwigoff directs.
With Amazon doing such a great job with these TV shows we would expect to see the first season out sometime in the late spring or early summer. It will likely be the case that the first new pilots will get their entire seasons launched on different weeks as Amazon does not want to overlap content.
One would expect to see one of the first seasons premiering on Memorial Day weekend as millions will have a three day weekend to watch as much Netflix and Amazon Prime as they so desire. Throughout the spring and summer we can expect both Netflix and Amazon to have as many first seasons as possible for their subscribers.
As far as a season 2, we will have to wait and see the success of season 1. If the reviews come in strong and many are actively leaving comments online, it would stand to reason that a season 2 will be renewed and will be available in 2018.
