The Best Action Shows On Amazon Prime

List RulesVote up the best action series currently streaming on Amazon Prime.

Of all the TV shows out there, action shows are typically hard to beat—and Amazon Prime has a great offering. Sure, comedies make you laugh. Thrillers keep you in suspense. But it's action that really packs a punch and keeps us wanting more. Whatever type of action series you're into, you can probably find something on Amazon Prime. 

For instance, popular shows like The Tick or more drama-oriented ones like The Boys and Vikings are both solid choices—lest we forget any thrillers. Simply put, you can find some of the best action shows with your Prime membership (lucky!). Of course, you can't forget about animated action series, such as Batman and Superman—and both adults and kids alike can enjoy adventure shows like these.

Vote for your favorite action series from the list below and help fellow action fans find the best and newest Amazon Prime action series by voting up your favorites, and downvoting any shows accordingly.
