What to watch on Netflix, Disney+ and Prime in Canada.

All the hotly anticipated and new shows streaming in Canada.

Where to watch the 5th season of Cobra Kai

What started off a YouTube reboot has become one of the most successful streaming shows ever, with each season hitting number one in multiple countries. Season 5 promises more karate, more feuds, more '80s nostalgia and of course, multiple fighting scenes (where no one gets hurt too badly). Premieres Sept. 9 on Netflix.

More shows to stream on Netflix

The Devil in Ohio: This limited series is a ripped-from-the-headlines story about cults and kidnapping, so it’s no wonder it’s attracting a huge audience of true crime buffs.

Love in the Villa: An opposites-attract/stuck-together rom-com set in a picturesque Italian villa? See you there.

Blonde (Sept. 28): Based on the Joyce Carol Oates book by the same name, Blonde is a fictionalized telling of the life and death of film icon Marilyn Monroe. With themes of fame, personhood, exploitation and trauma as told through the lens of a frozen-in-time film star, it's one of the most hotly anticipated films of the year.

Where to watch Hocus Pocus 2 in Canada?

This sequel has been a very, very long time coming and it's dropping just in time for spooky season. Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy reunite as the Sanderson sisters, who are conjured to modern-day Salem to stir up magic and mayhem. Premieres Sept. 30 on Disney+.

More shows to stream on Disney+

The Patient: A serial killer, a psychologist being held hostage and a very specific demand make for a taut thriller.

Reservation Dogs (season 2): This much-loved series was overlooked by the Emmys (but it has won a Peabody and two Independent Spirit Awards) and it deserves a spot on every must-watch list. Most of the cast, crew and writers are Indigenous and the coming-of-age storylines are heartwarming and heartbreaking.

The Bear: Unlike Netflix, Disney+ tends to drop episodes on a weekly basis, which means there’s still time to catch up on the first few episodes of the stressful and sometimes surreal show The Bear, set in the most dysfunctional sandwich shop in the world.

Tell Me Lies: Based on the hit novel of the same name, this limited series (about a torturous long-term college relationship) is shaping up to be the romantic drama of the season.

Where to watch the The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power series in Canada?

This epic event is the most expensive TV series ever made but the reviews have been hijacked by a vocal and discriminatory pocket of social media, which led to Amazon temporarily suspending reviews to avoid misogynistic and racist trolling and bots to drive down the rating. Unfortunate for fans and a blow for Amazon, which gambled a billion dollars to bring this fantasy world to life. Watch on Amazon with a Prime membership.

More new releases on Amazon Prime

Rick and Morty (season 6): Cartoon series can go on forever (see: The Simpsons) and even though slightly odd sci-fi Rick and Morty isn’t a huge commercial success with coffee mugs and candy bars, it does have a very devoted fandom.

Friday Night Lights (five seasons): This series isn’t new by any stretch. It was a huge hit with critics but never quite found an audience when it aired. Set in a small town in Texas where football is both an identity and an escape, the themes of community, familial bonds and classism stretch beyond sports.

Dog: This film didn’t make much of an impact when it was released back in the winter of 2022 but the plot line involves Channing Tatum and a dog. That's enough reason to watch.
