It’s almost summer, but that doesn’t mean you have to pause the binge-watching. After a pool party or a BBQ with the family, you can chill with some Netflix originals. Marvel’s Luke Cage returns for a second season after two years, so you know that calls for a viewing party. There’s also a wide selection of Oscar favorites that are finally here for binging. Check out what’s more on the horizon for June.
You know when your boss is driving you up the wall and you try to set them up with someone just to get them off your back? No? Well, these two executive assistants (Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell) do just that in Set It Up (June 15). This comedy looks promising as they play matchmakers for their bosses (Lucy Liu, Taye Diggs). Don’t go getting any ideas, now.
Another original that’s available for you to watch is Alex Strangelove (June 8), which tells the story of Alex Truelove, a high school senior who is dating Claire. But when he develops feelings for a boy from the other side of town, he is not ready for the roller coaster journey of love, sex and friendship.
Two original series returning to serve fans with an entertaining second season are Marvel’s Luke Cage and GLOW (June 29). Marvel’s Luke Cage will see Harlem’s hero, Luke Cage (Mike Colter), face off with two new villains while he tries to find the limits of who he can and can’t save.
The highly anticipated wrestling series GLOW will get more competitive as the ladies become local celebrities and confront the realities of the limelight and their newfound fame.
The sweeping series finale of Sense8 (June 8) will end with a battle between the Sensates and their closest allies, who fight to save the cluster and stop their enemies for good.
Lady Bird (June 3) is the Oscar-nominated film that wooed audiences young and old alike with stellar acting and an engaging plot. The coming-of-age film is one that we certainly recommend watching. Click here to read our review.
If that’s not enough, the female-led reboot film Ghostbusters (June 26) has got the right amount of humor and spirit (literally) to kick-start your summer. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and a very blond Chris Hemsworth provide oodles of laughs.
Horror movie enthusiasts can feast on Lights Out (June 11), a horror film that follows a woman who must protect her young brother from a spirit that kills its victims in the dark.
When a young reporter is struck by a mysterious, mentally devastating illness, she searches for answers while battling memory loss in Brain on Fire (June 22).
Of course, Star Wars fans are going to love watching Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which also streams on Netflix this month.
Happy binging! ~Marriska Fernandes
