Last week when six episodes of the highly anticipated 14 episode season three (3) were released they went straight to #1 on trending Amazon Prime TV. Every Tuesday for the next four (4) weeks two (2) new episodes will be released. “THE BAY, THE SERIES” is a series worth watching and becoming invested in.
