Amazon Releases Debuting Date for Woody Allen Show

Amazon and Netflix are battling over who can create the best original shows in the streaming universe.

Netflix will release 600 hours of original shows and movies in 2016, and while Amazon is nowhere near that, CFO Brian Olsavsky has said the company is poised to triple its originals count over the rest of the year.

On Monday, Amazon announced the upcoming schedule for its fall shows, which includes the return of fan favorites like "The Man in the High Castle" and "Transparent," as well as new shows like Woody Allen's "Crisis in Six Scenes."

Here are the shows we know Amazon will release by the end of the year, including Metacritic data about how their previous seasons fared with critics and the public, if they are returning shows.
