It's time for our monthly summary of notable new programming coming to streaming services and TV channels in Canada.

This is not a complete list, but where practical we will provide links to fuller information. While we do mention a few reality and documentary shows and the like, our main focus is on notable scripted programming.

Scheduled release dates are those indicated by the providers and are subject to change. Prices are listed by WCIW for convenience, and are likewise subject to change. Listed prices do not include any applicable sales taxes, which vary by province. The web version of this post may be updated occasionally during the month, though we cannot commit to updating everything that might be added or changed.


Netflix costs between $5.99 (for Standard with Ads, with HD streaming on a single device at a time) and $20.99 (for Premium, with ad-free multi-device 4K streaming) per month in Canada. Features and pricing may vary for certain pre-existing subscribers.

Netflix Canada posts its monthly listings on social media. Where necessary, we've cross-referenced against other sources.

Because of the sheer amount of content Netflix releases each month, we've sometimes been more judicious with the number of items listed compared to other services, so we encourage you to consult the service regularly if you're waiting on a specific program. These lists also do not always cover all international programming available in Canada.

New programs are normally released at 3:00 a.m. ET (midnight PT) on the date indicated, unless otherwise noted.
