Last Updated on February 28, 2023

We’ve gathered up the period dramas that are newly included with your US Prime Video membership in December 2022, and January and February 2023. We also include titles that can be watched for free with Freevee, no subscription needed.

Then, we share the historical / costume / period dramas that are newly available on Prime Video Add-On Channels, are available to rent, and movies and TV series in the genre that are being released to DVD this fall.

Check this list throughout the season; we’ll update all the sections (alphabetically) as more titles become available. If some of these titles look familiar, it’s because they were previously available with Prime Video, were pulled off, and now they are back.
