The weather might finally be getting better, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be trading in our TV-watching sessions for beach days just yet. Thankfully, there are some shows old and new to help you pass the time before we all head back outdoors. Check out these new binge-worthy shows to watch this spring on Amazon Prime Canada.
For an upbeat dance show, watch ‘Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls’
What can’t Lizzo do? The Grammy-winning hitmaker searches for talented dancers to join her on her world tour in this reality series. See which hopefuls have what it takes to twerk their way to the top over the course of eight episodes.
For a new take on an old classic, watch ‘Bel-Air’
This 2022 spin on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is a lot darker than the original, but we think the cast absolutely killed it. As Coco Jones, the actress who plays Hilary Banks put it when we chatted with her about the reboot: “A comedy is typically more lighthearted and you don’t really get the time to touch on deeper issues as much as you can in a drama where the center of it is those raw, ugly truths, those secrets and scandals. I think with this show, we really open up each character and get into the depths of them, the scarier sides of them.”
For some quirky fun, watch season four of ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’
Season four of the acclaimed comedy series is finally out, and prepare to laugh and gasp as Midge Maisel keeps pushing her career forward in the pursuit of creative freedom. With only one more season left for the show, enjoy every episode of season four before the fifth and final one drops sometime in 2023.
For a coming-of-age comedy that sparks joy, watch ‘As We See It’
Adulting isn’t always easy, and these three friends prove there are many ups and downs to navigating life in your 20s. The series follows Jack (Rick Glassman), Harrison (Albert Rutecki), and Violet (Sue Ann Pien), as roommates who are all on the autism spectrum. They navigate work, friendships and romance, with plenty of heartwarming moments. All three of the lead actors identify as living on the spectrum, so they’re also providing the positive representation we so need on our screens right now.
For some laughs, watch ‘LOL: Last One Laughing Canada’
Comedian and actor Jay Baruchel hosts this new series where 10 of the country’s top comedians compete to make each other laugh while avoiding letting out a laugh themselves. There are six-hour challenges that will have you cracking up and gasping for air.
