Amazon Studios’ Original Series Red Oaks will debut its second season on Friday, Nov. 11, with ten 30-minute episodes that can be binge-watched over the weekend. The series was one of the first to offer 4k resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) when Amazon officially began supporting the format in June, 2015.
Red Oaks can be streamed at no extra charge to Amazon Prime subscribers, or, individual episodes can be purchased for $2.99 each. We imagine Amazon will offer the first episode of Season 2 free to anyone, as they did with Season 1.
Other Amazon series streaming in 4k include Mozart in the Jungle (Seasons 1-2), Transparent (Seasons 1-3), and Good Girls Revolt (Season 1). (View an extended list of content available in 4k on Amazon Video.)
For Amazon Prime members, 4k video with HDR doesn’t cost any more than HD video, but sufficient bandwidth is required to stream in Ultra HD. And, of course, a 4k TV that supports HDR.

Red Oaks was created by Joe Gangemi and Gregory Jacobs about a country club where summer employees ponder their futures. The show stars Craig Roberts, Alexandra Socha, Ennis Esmer, Jennifer Grey, and Paul Reiser.
