Published May 24, 2016In the global content wars, Netflix continues to dominate with a wide variety of exclusive television shows, comedy specials and movies. June is looking no different, so plan to hunker down in front of a screen no matter how nice it gets outside.
There's a wide variety of original Netflix programming hitting the streaming service this June, including its first-ever Japanese original. Hibana: Spark is based on a novella of the same name from comedian Naoki Matayoshi. It's a drama that follows the lives of two competing standup comedians in Japan, and will launch on Netflix on June 2.
There's some actual standup hitting the service as well, with a new, highly anticipated special coming from the hotly tipped Bo Burnham. His Make Happy special launches on June 3, and based on its trailer it looks like it'll take on technology.
Of course, Netflix wouldn't be the behemoth it is today without its beloved prison series Orange Is the New Black. That show will drop its fourth season on June 17. There's also the launch of a brand new show called A Very Secret Service, which arrives on June 30.
Netflix notoriously bought up a great deal of films at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Among them was the Paul Rudd/Selena Gomez drama The Fundamentals of Caring. They'll debut that film to the world on June 24.
If you're desperate for some sweet, sweet Cancon, season one of Degrassi: The Next Class will arrive on June 11. There's also a collection of Bob Ross painting specials called Beauty Is Everywhere landing on June 1. Hell, with Bob Ross on Netflix, we can't argue with that title.
There are a handful of notable films hitting the service, including He Named Me Malala (June 1), The Martian (June 1), The Good Dinosaur (June 1) and Trumbo (June 24).
Other films hitting the service include Need for Speed (June 1), That Awkward Moment (June 1), Tammy (June 14) and The Last Witch Hunter (June 20).
All of the Dragon's Den judges will collectively say "I'm out" when the show leaves Netflix on June 1. On that day you'll also have to say goodbye to Miss Congeniality, Super Troopers, The Adjustment Bureau and This Means War.
June 18 sees the excellent UK film Attack the Block dropped from the service, and June 29 marks the loss of two Spike Jonze-related project with the loss of Her and Bad Grandpa.
