What's new on Canadian streaming & TV in October 2022?

New and returning programs this month include "The Mole", "Werewolf by Night", "The White Lotus", "Alaska Daily", and much more.

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

In fact it's past time, since we usually aim to post this on or before the first of the month. Unfortunately the new month crept up on us after a busy late September here at WCIW headquarters – we apologize for the delay. However, we're still aiming to send out our usual Watching This Week newsletter tomorrow (Monday) morning.

This is not intended as 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 and corrections. 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 $9.99 and $20.99 per month in Canada, depending on the number of streams and picture quality you need.

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

Because of the sheer amount of content Netflix releases each month, we've typically been more judicious with the number of items listed compared to other services, so we encourage you to consult the full lists if you're waiting on a specific program.

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