Summer is almost around the corner, but the new array of Netflix content is giving us a reason or two to stay indoors. From fan favorite original series such as Black Mirror and Jessica Jones, to new original films with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, there’s a lot to stream.
Black Mirror, the buzzworthy series that gained a massive following of fans and a thumbs-up from critics, returns for a fifth season. On June 5, expect three new stories from mastermind Charlie Brooker and executive producer Annabel Jones. Starring this season are Anthony Mackie, Miley Cyrus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Topher Grace.
Netflix is bringing back the beloved show Tales of the City (June 7) that began in 1993 and made a huge impact on the LGBTQ community. Almost 25 years after the series pilot, some of the original cast members are returning to tackle different contemporary queer issues.
It’s time we saw Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston reunite in a comedy that delivers LOLs. A NYC cop (Sandler) takes his wife (Aniston) on a long overdue European trip in Murder Mystery (June 14). A chance meeting gets them invited to an exclusive family gathering on the super yacht of elderly billionaire Malcolm Quince. When Quince is murdered, they become the prime suspects in a modern day whodunit.
As the date for the apocalyptic Last Cycle approaches, Winden’s families discover that they play a critical role in the fate of their world in Dark, Season 2.
Jessica Jones returns on June 14 for a final season. This time Jessica (Krysten Ritter) and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take down a highly intelligent psychopath.
Need a cuppa comedy? Couples Retreat follows four Midwestern couples as they embark on a journey to a tropical island resort. It’s everything that doesn’t usually happen at a retreat and more. Role Models starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott is another comedy you’ll enjoy this summer.
Oscar winning Inception is coming to Netflix. Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed film follows Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), a skilled thief who masters in the art of stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. He is hired to do something different this time around — to plant an idea in someone’s subconscious.
This one is a no-brainer. With an all-star ’80s cast, The Breakfast Club is a coming-of-age comedy from writer/director John Hughes that helped define an entire generation. It’s a total classic so let’s just say it’s your next sleepover movie.
Another Oscar winner to watch is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Joel (Jim Carrey) discovers that his longtime girlfriend, Clementine (Kate Winslet), has undergone an experimental procedure in which all of her memories of Joel are removed. He decides to do the same, but ends up altering all of his memories.
The Edge of Seventeen is a more recent coming-of-age story starring Hailee Steinfeld, as an awkward teen trying to navigate high school, with Blake Jenner as her older brother and Haley Lu Richardson as her best friend, and Hayden Szeto as Hailee’s love interest.
If you’re one of those horror lovers who is looking forward to Annabelle Comes Home releasing in June, we suggest watching Annabelle: Creation, which follows possessed doll Annabelle as she haunts an orphanage.
