Shows we can't wait to watch -- but they aren't available to stream in Canada

One of the stars of the (recent) classic comedy series Broad City, Ilana Glazer, has co-written and stars in a new horror/comedy called False Positive. It debuts on Hulu in the U.S. on June 25, but there's no sign of it coming to Canada anytime soon.
“As if getting pregnant weren't complicated enough, Lucy sets out to uncover the unsettling truth about her fertility doctor.“
Want to see what Annie Murphy (Schitt's Creek) is up to next? Well, you better have one of those old tyme cable boxes with AMC in your package, because there's nowhere to stream it. Like other AMC shows, it will probably end up on Netflix eventually, but not when it debuts on TV June 20. Too bad, it's getting incredible reviews.
“Kevin Can FK Himself breaks television convention and blends multi-camera comedy with single-camera realism to make us ask, "who and what have we been laughing at all of these years?"“
Tuca & Bertie on Adult Swim (US)
Season one is available on Netflix but they cancelled Tuca & Bertie after that season. Adult Swim in the U.S. picked up season two, which debuts June 13 -- but not in Canada. It's not on TV or available for streaming.
“The story of two 30-year old bird women who live in the same apartment building.“
