Hmm, I’ve a feeling this month’s Netflix roundup might prove rather invaluable to you now that summer seems to have finally arrived… But anyway, irrespective of the world outside, you can find blockbuster films, hot new series, and thought-provoking documentaries unleashed on Netflix this month, ready and waiting to stream. Here’s the best of what to watch on Netflix UK this June.
Spiderhead, June 17th
Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller star in Spiderhead, a bonkers new thriller that sees prisoners able to reduce their sentence if they volunteer as a medical subject, which, unfortunately for them, just so happens to be for Hemsworth’s evil, sexy scientist, Steve. The subjects are administered mind-altering drugs designed to invoke feelings of love in those who take it – which may sound fluffy from the outside, but the reality of it is much, much darker. Expect quite a weird and wild ride with this one. Stream it on June 17th.
The Umbrella Academy (S3), June 22nd
Hit superhero show The Umbrella Academy returns for its third season, throwing yet another spanner in the works for the Hargreeves family. This time, in the form of a rival superhero clan, the Sparrow Academy. In true The Umbrella Academy fashion, however, it won’t be long until the next apocalyptic event hits, which may see both Academies team up to beat the ‘kugelblitz’, which is basically a giant black hole just gagging to suck up Earth and all of its inhabitants. Charming. Binge it from June 22nd.
Man VS Bee, June 24th
Rowan Atkinson returns to our screens with a new series doing what he does best: Mr Bean-esque dilemmas. Starring as Trevor, the comedy series will see Atkinson go up against a particularly pesky bee whilst house-sitting a stunning mansion, resulting in chaos, chaos and more chaos. Stream it from June 24th.
Hustle, June 10th
Adam Sandler is back in a new Netflix flick playing, you guessed it, a down-on-his-luck bloke looking for his final shot at success. Sounds familiar, we know, but it’s a pretty highly anticipated movie, which should certainly satisfy the sports film fans among Netflix subscribers. Stanley (Sandler) discovers an incredibly talented player whilst abroad, and brings him back to America without his team’s permission in the hopes of making it to the NBA. Stream it on June 10th.
God’s Favourite Idiot, June 15th
Melissa McCarthy’s comedy reign continues with new series, God’s Favourite Idiot. Created by and starring Ben Falcone, the series follows tech support employee Clark, who finds himself juggling a new romantic relationship with his co-worker and his new role as a messenger for God as Earth faces an impending apocalypse. I know, it’s a lot, but it does look pretty funny judging by the trailer. Watch it on June 15th.
Snowflake Mountain, June 22nd
If you, like me, love getting stuck into a corny Netflix reality show, then you’ll have probably heard of their newest concept, Snowflake Mountain. A show that’s set to give Gen Z’ers a real rude awakening, Snowflake Mountain will send a bunch of ‘spoiled kidults’ into the wild, where they’ll be forced to experience the realities of the real world in the hopes that it helps them “grow up” a little. Sounds brutal. Watch it on June 22nd.
Money Heist: Korea, June 24th
The original Money Heist may have come to an end, but the franchise is set to live on with Money Heist: Korea. Similarly to the original show, a group of cunning thieves hold the mint of a unified Korea and its employees hostage, as they attempt to steal a whopping fortune by the orders of a shadowy mastermind. Stream it from June 24th.
