Seize these Amazon Video sales before season premieres.
With many TV crime dramas starting their new seasons this month, Amazon Video is offering some considerable sales on some of the genre’s most popular shows.
If you still need to catch up on past episodes before the new seasons start, now is the time to purchase these existing seasons and start binge-watching. As with all Amazon deals, though, these are limited-time sales so don’t wait too long!
SWAT seasons 1-3 ($9.99)
New season: Wednesday, Nov. 11
SWAT season 4 is getting to premiere in the fall, because it’s one of the first CBS shows that returned to filming. But since this isn’t when the show normally airs it’s not a surprise that some fans might still be catching up on the previous three seasons.
Amazon Video has a sale going on the entire show so far, with each season at a great price. You might not be able to watch all three in a week, since that’s more than two dozen episodes, but it’s a steal. And if by some chance you haven’t checked SWAT out yet, this pricing makes it easy to get the whole show and watch from the beginning.
FBI: Most Wanted season 1 ($9.99)
New season: Tuesday, Nov. 17
While FBI is now an established hit for CBS, its spinoff series FBI: Most Wanted is only entering its second season this fall. So if you missed it, this sale gives you the chance to familiarize yourself with the drama starring Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) as the leader of a crack squad who goes after the worst of the worst.
The show is considerably darker than its parent series, with plots including mass shootings, family annihilation, and a cult, so it’s not the same as FBI. Its ensemble cast also includes Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider), Kellan Lutz (Twilight) and Roxy Sternberg, with guest appearances by Alana de la Garza (FBI).
For Life season 1 ($9.99)
New season: Wednesday, Nov. 18
For Life flew under the radar for most of its first season on ABC, but it’s as much a TV crime drama as a legal drama. The show follows Aaron Wallace (played by Criminal and Marcella alum Nicholas Pinnock) as he fights to overturn his wrongful conviction.
While that’s the through-line for the first season, it also shows other crimes of the week as Aaron becomes a lawyer for other convicts and works to unravel the conspiracy that landed him behind bars. Given current events the series may be even more poignant now than when it originally aired in spring 2020.
It’s based on the true story of Isaac Wright Jr., and you can read Precinct TV’s interview with Isaac about the show and how it was made here.
These sales are limited-time only, so take advantage of these prices while they last. Stay tuned next week as we’ll keep you updated on the latest Amazon Video deals for TV crime drama fans!
