The TV series that made Paul Gross a household name and Kim Cattrall’s self-described “passion project” are among 13 older Canadian shows that Netflix will begin streaming this month through January 2023.

Besides 1994 comedy “Due South,” with Gross playing a Mountie who winds up in Chicago, and 2014 comedy “Sensitive Skin,” which showcased star and executive producer Cattrall as a woman coming to terms with aging, other titles include the 1990 Quebec period romance “Les filles de Caleb,” starring Marina Orsini and Roy Dupuis, and 2010 crime drama “Rookie Blue,” starring Missy Peregrym as a rookie cop.

“We want Canadians of all ages to be able to enjoy these amazing series all over again or discover local stories they may have never seen before,” Danielle Woodrow, Netflix director of Canadian series, said in a news release.

“Sensitive Skin” will be available Friday along with 2015 miniseries “Pour Sarah,” about the fallout of a car accident in which two teenage friends are seriously injured.

“Rookie Blue,” 2011 comedy “Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays” and 2016 serial killer series “Séquelles” can be streamed as of Aug. 31.

Still to follow at unspecified dates are “Due South”; “Les filles de Caleb”; 2018 workout comedy “Let’s Get Physical”; 2001 comedy “La vie, la vie”; 2010 medical drama “Trauma”; 2011 French-language police drama “19-2”; 2017 hostage drama “La siège”; and 2018 drama “Hubert & Fanny.”
