Amazon Prime Video will release three new original series this month in Canada – including horror anthology Them, comedy Franke of Ireland, and dark comedy Made for Love.
The final season of fan-favourite Younger also debuts this month along with two new films Stowaway and Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse.

The first season, “Covenant,” is set in the 1950s and centres around a Black family who moves from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighbourhood during the period known as ‘The Great Migration.’ The family’s new home becomes ground zero where malevolent forces threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them.
