You've heard about it - but who actually carries it?

Archive 81 on Netflix
An archivist hired to restore a collection of tapes finds himself reconstructing the work of a filmmaker and her investigation into a dangerous cult. An intriguing blend of horror and noir, Archive 81 offers addictive supernatural thrills.
It's not too late to jump on the Station Eleven bandwagon. Based on the novel, and told in ten parts, it's ostensibly about the few survivors of a devastating global pandemic, but deep down it is about the past, forgiveness and moving on.
Yellowjackets on Crave
A team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the Ontario(!) wilderness. Season One wraps up on Sunday, Jan 16, 2022, and has been renewed for a second season.
Succession on Crave
The Roy family is known for controlling the biggest media and entertainment company in the world. However, their world changes when their father steps down from the company.

 
New shows and movies we can't wait to watch -- but aren't available to stream in Canada

Dune on HBO Max
Dune is now available On-Demand through Apple TV, Prime Video and others. It is $24.99 to rent or $29.99 to buy. No word at this time as to when it will be available to stream as part of a subscription. When it happens it will likely be on Crave.
“Feature adaptation of Frank Herbert's science fiction novel, about the son of a noble family entrusted with the protection of the most valuable asset and most vital element in the galaxy.“
The Other Two on Crave + HBO
We're assuming this new season 2 will be on Crave, even though season 1 ran on CTV Comedy, because the show moved from Comedy Central to HBO Max in between seasons. HOWEVER, WE WERE WRONG. There's no sign of the second season on either Comedy or Crave.
“An aspiring actor and his sister Brooke, a former professional dancer, try to find their place in the world while wrestling with their feelings about their 13-year-old brother Chase's sudden rise to internet fame.“
Debuting Aug. 25. Rather than stick to one story all season, Double Feature is split in two completely separate parts, titled "Red Tide" and "Death Valley." Further details are a secret for now, but the first teaser certainly suggests that aliens will be involved in some way. It will only be available to stream if you are a cable TV subscriber to FX.
“An anthology series centering on different characters and locations, including a house with a murderous past, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show circus, a haunted hotel, a possessed farmhouse, a cult, the apocalypse, and a slasher summer camp.“

 




Here's what's new and worth checking out across all the major streaming services

The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window
Friday, January 28
Netflix's eight-episode miniseries is a comedic murder mystery — and also a spoof of the psychological thriller genre. Kristen Bell heads the cast as a wine-guzzling, broken-hearted woman who believes that she has witnessed a murder while looking outside her window. Kind of like Rear Window for the 21st century pandemic era.

The Afterparty
Friday, January 28
Apple's new comedic mystery series about a murder at a high school reunion certainly has some intriguing names attached. Even more intriguing is the Rashomon-like structure that finds each episode retracing the events of the evening from a different character's perspective—with each episode adopting a different genre (including a musical episode) that best matches the featured character.
