In March 2017, Amazon Prime released five pilots for their subscribers to consume. One of the most popular so far as been Oasis which is based on the novel The Book of Strange New Things from Michel Faber. This is just another hit TV show that has been based on a book. While it may not be as popular as Game of Thrones, it still has an opportunity to be a hit show for Amazon.
Oasis follows a priest who is sent into space to help establish a colony on a distant planet. What he ends up discovering not only puts his faith to the test, but also life as we know it. Oscar winner Kevin MacDonald directs.
What may make this a very popular show is the fact that the main character is played by the same character that played Robb Stark in Game of Thrones on HBO. It is amazing to see how much power comes from an actor or actress from a very popular TV show on another channel.
As of right now, only the pilot is available for Amazon Prime subscribers. One would expect this to be the first of the five pilots that will have the entire first season released to the public. It may even happen before the end of April 2017.
As soon as we find out more about the first season we will update this article. We will also be the first to let you know if a season 2 has been renewed by Amazon. If the show is super successful and the ratings are strong, Amazon would be silly not to renew. That said, if the entire first season completes the book, it will be difficult to come up with new content. Game of Thrones is now ahead of the books and they continue to come up with new content though.
Did you like the pilot? Are you ready for the entire first season? When do you want it to be made available by Amazon?
If you have seen all of Season 1, do you want a season 2? Should season 2 come out before 2018 or 2019?
