Real talk: 2018 felt like a literal dumpster fire (despite the fact that some good things happened). From the Brett Kavanaugh trial to Crocs collabs, all we want to say is “thank u, next” to last year. If you’re in need of a pick-me-up (saaame), you are in for a freakin’ treat. Here is everything coming to Amazon Prime Canada in January 2019, like the entire award-winning series Will & Grace (the O.G. and the reboot)—plus a bunch more sitcoms that will turn that 2018 frown upside down. Let the binge-watching begin, y’all!
