Will season 3 shoot it even higher?The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel kicked up a TV awards storm the year before.

That honor goes to the groundbreaking Transparent, which ended in 2019 after four seasons and a musical finale.

Other top titles include FleabagThe Wilds, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Homecoming, Good Omens, The Expanse, and more.

To be included in our list of the best Amazon series, titles must be Fresh (60% or higher on the Tomatometer) with at least 10 reviews.
