New on Netflix in June 2020

Hey, iso people. In these unprecedented times, we just want to extend to you a big fat ‘well done’. It’s not an easy period in human history to be alive right now and if you’re reading this; you’re still here and we hope you’re OK.

But for a little bit of perspective, there have been worse times to have been in existence – like 1918 for example, during the Spanish flu. The people alive at that time endured a virus that could kill in a matter of hours from infection, multiple rebellions across Europe and of course and the harrowing aftermath of the first world war.

And they didn’t have a shared common enemy in Carole Baskin.

Which brings us to the silver lining of it all. Netflix has done a bloody fantastic job at making our isolated lives just a little bit better thanks to recent smash streaming hits such as ‘The Last Dance’ & ‘Tiger King’ – and June is shaping up to be a belter too. So here it is, the very best of what’s New on Netflix in June 2020.

Best New Series on Netflix

13 Reasons Why: Season 4

In the name of Hannah’s unnecessary ghost, how the actual fuck did this show get to four seasons? As if the existence of seasons 2 and 3 weren’t enough of a slap in the face, Liberty High School’s senior class is preparing for graduation. One final time the rag-tag crew of dipshit friends will have to band together one last time to keep a dangerous secret buried. Urgh.

Release date: 5th June 2020

Queer Eye: Season 5

The Fab Five are now headed to ‘historic’ Philadelphia to make over a new cast of everyday heroes – from a hardworking DJ (may we suggest fewer glowstick bracelets?) to a struggling dog groomer (is there another kind?).

Release date: 5th June 2020

The Sinner- Jamie

The Sinner: Jamie

The show that has miraculously stayed close to the level of quality that the first season established, The Sinner: Jamie will see detective Harry Ambrose investigating a grisly car crash that leads to one of the most complicated and dangerous cases of his career. Definitely worth putting onto the Netflix release date calendar.

Release date: 19th June 2020

Floor is Lava

Floor Is Lava

We would have killed to have been in the meeting when the 4-year-old boy that wrote ‘Floor Is Lava’ pitched this into existence. In a show where teams compete to navigate rooms ‘flooded with lava’ by leaping from chairs, hanging from curtains and swinging from chandeliers, we ask ourselves: has humanity long since peaked?

Best New Movies on Netflix

Da 5 Bloods

From Academy Award Winner Spike Lee (director of the fabulous BlacKkKlansman) comes the new story of four African-American Vets who return to Vietnam in the search for the remains of their fallen Squad Leader (Chadwick Boseman) – and the promise of buried treasure, of course.

Release date: 12th June 2020

The Last Days of American Crime

Boasting a pretty sweet concept, The Last Days of American crime could have been one of the best new movies on Netflix. Unfortunately, as anyone who has seen this ungodly mess since it was released on June 5 would know, it is anything but. The premise is fine; as a final response to terrorism and crime, the US government plans to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts.  A group of skilled misfits then band together to commit the biggest heist of the century – and the last crime in American history before the signal goes off. Where the wheels come off, however, is in the timing. A film centred around some pretty gratuitous violence in a police state is probably not the kind of message Netflix was looking to send. Besides, this 149-minute epic is an agonisingly slow tale that never really gets going.

Release date: 5th June 2020

Lost Bullet

Calling all Fast & Furious fans, Lost Bullet is the full-throttle, ‘pimp my ride’ sister film you’ve been waiting for. Following a convicted car mechanic who’s recruited to work for the cops, pimping-out police vehicles for high-speed chases, LB will undoubtedly rev a lot of engines.

Release date: 19th 6th 2020
