Scroll down to see our top picks for the best sci-fi TV shows you can stream right now on Prime Video.
Electric Dreams (2017-2018)
Electric Dreams lives up to its name, and every episode of the anthology series features a vibrant, polished film sifting on the sources of its works: Philip K. Dick's works. However, some episodes are better than others, and if you're in for storytelling with Black Mirror-like structures, let this reverie slip over you.
The Man in the High Castle (2015-2019)
The Man in the High Castle explores an alternate history in which the Axis powers (Rome-Berlin-Tokyo) won World War II. Based on a Philip K. Dick novel, the series follows characters from the 1960s who live in a parallel universe, where Nazi Germany and Japan won the war, causing some to rebel. However, there's unimaginable newsreel footage surfacing of a world in which Germany and Japan lost the war, causing some to fall short. This
J.K. Simmons is playing off J.K. Simmons for a second time. Set in Germany during a cold war, the sci-fi thriller follows a lowly office grunt humiliated. One day, he meets himself, but a better version from a parallel world is a must-watch.
Tales from the Loop (2020)
Tales from the Loop, a fictional comedy written by Swedish artist Simon Stlenhag, is stunning to watch. Meticulous, symmetrical frames give off a painterly sense. The interconnected townspeople are similarly nuanced, their stories exploring loneliness, aging, and the impact of technology.
Orphan Black (2013-2017)
In more ways than one, the Tatiana Maslany show is based on Disney Plus' She-Hulk. Before she becomes a household name, she'll see no fewer than 14 characters in one series, including a hallucinated scorpion. Just let that sink in for a second. Orphan Black joins forces in a must-watch sci-fi series exploring the nature vs. nurture debate.
The Expanse (2015-2022)
The Expanse has been rescued from the realm of canceled television, increasing the series to six seasons. Thank goodness it did, because The Expanse is a clever sci-fi that combines realistic characterity, high production values, and a deep rooted detective. A conspiracy is attempting to ignite a cold war between the greatest powers. Look forward to additional space western themes in the consistently excellent later seasons.
The Feed (2019)
With this British series about technology gone wrong, The Feed focuses on an implant that allows people to livestream their lives without needing to press a button on a phone. No, absolutely nothing goes wrong. David Thewlis and Michelle Fairley have an impressive cast. While The Feed isn't as polished or deep-cutting as Black Mirror, it's still worth a look.
Humans might not be entirely original, but the assembled parts are sing. A British family purchase an artificially intelligent robot called a "synth" to assist out during their busy lives. Humans' greatest strength is at the sweet center: an unquestionable connection between the family's younger daughter and Gemma Chan's elegant and efficient synth Anita. A mystery is an exploration of the origins of the robots, which is based on philosophical concepts.
