Having officially watched everything on my Netflix list during the lockdown, we are super excited about all the new programming dropping on Netflix in June.
There are lots of new episodes of our favorite shows on Netflix, including Thirteen Reasons Why, Ryan Murphy’s The Politician, The Order, and Dark. We are also excited about new Mexican thriller series The Search, and Polish mystery The Woods.
Netflix has invested in some interesting new films including new Spike Lee offering Da 5 Bloods, Will Ferrell comedy about the Eurovision Song Contest, and Wasp Network, about Cuban spies in America.
There is also a strong offering in documentaries including Athlete A, about abusive gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, and Spelling the Dream about young spelling bee hopefuls.
There are quite a few gems in the back catalog of films including Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird, drama The Help, and V for Vendetta. Any fans of K-drama will have lots of new materials in the back catalog shows.
