Prime Video to Debut 3 New Reality Shows This Summer
Prime Video is bringing three new reality shows to its roster. The One That Got Away, Forever Summer: Hamptons, and Cosmic Love will all debut this summer, the streaming service announced Wednesday, May 4.
The One That Got Away (hosted by singer Betty Who) and Cosmic Love are both reality dating shows, and Forever Summer: Hamptons is billed as a “coming-of-age docusoap.” They join Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls and Making the Cut Season 3 in Prime Video’s catalogue of unscripted series.
“We’re excited to introduce a new slate of addictive, entertaining reality programming that celebrates love and relationships in all forms,” Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “Through past connections and astrology, The One That Got Away and Cosmic Love are dating shows that give audiences unique and fresh takes on finding the perfect match. Forever Summer: Hamptons gives us a classic, dramatic reality show in an idyllic place with a cast that’s not afraid of confrontation. These shows are amazing additions to our unscripted slate and will make Prime Video the destination for juicy, escapist summer content.”

The One That Got Away
The One That Got Away premieres all 10 episodes on Friday, June 24.
“It may seem like an impossible feat to track down The One That Got Away, but for these lucky singles, that dream becomes a reality,” the logline teases. “In this time-traveling, experimental dating series hosted by singer/songwriter Betty Who, six people searching for their soulmates are given the chance to explore a lifetime of missed connections as one by one, people from their pasts enter through ‘The Portal’ to surprise them and take their shot at love.”
The One That Got Away is produced by Amazon Studios and Fulwell 73. Elan Gale (FBoy Island, The Bachelor franchise) will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Gabe Turner (The Late Late Show with James Corden, Jonas Family Roast) and Caroline Roseman (Ex on the Beach, An Audience with Adele) also executive produce for Fulwell 73.
Forever Summer: Hamptons
Forever Summer: Hamptons will premiere its eight episodes in July. Forever Summer: Hamptons is a “coming-of-age docusoap, set against the idyllic backdrop of the Hamptons, about a group of college kids from widely different backgrounds, from wealthy New York City kids who descend for the summer, to the humble townies.”
“By day, they’re working at a seaside restaurant. By night, they are tearing up the town, testing friendships, and exploring love during the hottest days of the year,” the description continues. “This group and their friends are chasing the perfect summer at a pivotal time in their lives, when carefree adolescence is about to end. Come September, the stakes and responsibilities will be high, but the summer is theirs for the taking.”
Forever Summer: Hamptons is produced by Haymaker East and Amazon Studios. Lynne Spillman (Making The Cut, Survivor) executive produces, along with Aaron Rothman, Josh Halpert, and Jesse Light for Haymaker East (Southern Charm, Camp Getaway), Jessica Chesler (Southern Charm, Ladies of London), and Morgan Miller (Southern Charm, Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles).
Cosmic Love premieres its 10 episodes in August, and as the title implies, it’s astrology-themed. Astrologers and authors Ophira and Tali Edut (aka The AstroTwins) host the series, guiding singles by way of the mysterious Astro Chamber (voiced by Cree Summer).
“In this one-of-a-kind social experiment, four individuals attempt to find their perfect spouse via astrological matchmaking,” Prime Video describes. “Their romantic adventure takes place at a retreat run by a mystical guide, the Astro Chamber. They mingle, match, date, eliminate, and eventually make the biggest decision of their lives… will they marry their match, based solely on their astrology?”
Cosmic Love is produced by Amazon Studios and Hudsun Media. Jess Castro (Love Island, American Idol) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Michael Rourke (House of DVF, The Toy Box) for Hudsun Media, Hashim Williams (Barbershop Medicine, The Bachelor franchise), and Nathan Coyle also executive produce, along with Viki Cacciatore (Running Wild with Bear Grylls, American Ninja Warrior). Cosmic Love, which was developed by Hudsun Media, will also have a localized version filmed in France.
Exact premiere dates for Forever Summer: Hamptons and Cosmic Love will be announced at a later time.
