A episodic title (series) consists of multiple episodes that comprise a seasonfor example, a TV show ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel") or multi-part documentary.
A title can have multiple seasons. For episodic titles available for purchase, you choose if an entire collection (season) or individual videos (episodes) is available for purchase.
Important: If Buy season is selected when submitting a title, episodes can't be added or deleted later. Changing offer types doesn't bypass this restriction and a new season must be created.
Note: Available locations are based on the metadata language selected when creating a title. To add a new location, create a title entry and select the corresponding metadata language. For supported languages by location, see Location requirements.
A minimum of one crew member must be added, but we recommend that you also enter at least key actors for improved search discoverability on Prime Video. If you're submitting a TV show, then you must provide a director.
After you've entered a cast or crew member, reorder the list by using the up and down arrow buttons, or delete an entry by click the X button. For cast members, the top two to four entries appear as "Starring" actors on Prime Video.
