3 Netflix shows we can’t wait to see in June 2024

Netflix had an eventful May, with star-studded shows like A Man in Full with Jeff Daniels and Eric with Benedict Cumberbatch dominating its new release slate. And the continued success of the April release Baby Reindeer helped make the streamer retain its status as the most-talked-about Hollywood player on the internet. June is going to be a bit quieter than that month, but no less interesting.

While Netflix‘s June programming slate sports returning shows like That ’90s Show and yet another season of The Mole, there are also under-the-radar series like the British import Supacell debuting or underrated ones like Sweet Tooth wrapping up their runs. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to be in for a good time as you celebrate the official start of the summer season.

Sweet Tooth season 3 (June 6)

All good things must come to an end, and that unfortunately includes this series, which chronicles the journey of a young boy as he finds out where he came from and, more specifically, who his mother is. OK, so he’s a mutant hybrid with antlers growing out of his head, and the world he travels through has been ravaged by a virus that decimated the human population, but other than that, Sweet Tooth is just your average, run-of-the-mill coming-of-age story.

Season 3 sees our hero Gus and his ragtag clan of mutant kids and human protector Jepperd travel to Alaska to find Gus’s mother … and possibly a way to stop human extinction for good. They’ll have to face off against a new threat: Helen Zhang and her Wolf Boys, who have their own dangerous ways of restarting the human race. Sweet Tooth has been flying under the radar ever since its debut in 2021, so now’s a good time to catch up, rewatch, and tune in for the show’s can’t-miss finale season.

Hierarchy (June 7)

Hierarchy | Official Teaser | Netflix [ENG SUB]

South Korean shows are all the rage these days, but they aren’t all as famous as Squid Game. Not much is known about Hierarchy save for its unbeatable premise: at a prestigious private school, rich kids engage in social mind games that reflect the adult world’s obsession with gossip, money, status, and power.

Think of this as Elite but with a little more edge, and that’s what Hierarchy promises to be. The show is directed by Bae Hyeon-jin, who also helmed Start Up, Big Mouth, and Alchemy of Souls, and written by Chu Hye-mi, who wrote the massively popular romance series About Time. If you like seeing spoiled teenagers play dirty tricks on each other, then Hierarchy is for you.

Supacell (June TBD)

Yes, here’s another show about dangerous superheroes covertly operating in our world. But before you cast this off as a ripoff of The Boys, take a closer look: It actually looks pretty cool. The concept is simple: A group of ordinary people in South London develop various superpowers and have to deal with the personal and societal problems that arise from their predicament.

They are also all Black, and Supacell promises to examine how race plays a role in how each member of this group is seen by the wider, non-superpowered British populace. Created, written, and directed by British rapper Rapman, Supacell aims to do what the best comic book adaptations do best: use a fictional framework to tell a compelling story with real-world implications. This could be the next Netflix series to break out, so it’s best to get in from the start and binge it as soon as it’s released.

If you have to watch one Amazon Prime Video movie in June 2024, stream this one
if you have to watch one amazon prime video movie in june 2024 stream this robert de niro midnight run

Coming into June, there's one movie that the vast majority of Amazon Prime Video subscribers are likely to check out: Oppenheimer. Christopher Nolan's latest film is also the reigning Oscar-winner for Best Picture, and it's coming to Prime Video on June 18. But because it's such an obvious pick, it's not the film we went with when choosing the Amazon Prime Video movie that you have to watch in June.

Instead, we're going with Midnight Run, a 1988 action comedy starring Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. It's also one of the best-ever films in its genre, and very few movies have improved upon the formula that director Martin Brest and screenwriter George Gallo used here. Even 36 years after its release, Midnight Run withstands the test of time. And we're sharing the reasons why it should be at the top of your Prime Video viewing plans in June.

3 underrated movies on Max you need to watch in June 2024
Angelina Jolie as Fox in Wanted.

While Max's lineup of movies isn't quite as impressive as it used to be, it still has a number of films that are worth getting excited about. That's especially true when it comes to the movies of the last 20 years, which have been buried by the seemingly endless barrage of streaming films. Now, it's almost impossible to watch every new release, which only makes it more important to remember the underrated movies of the past before they're completely forgotten.

This month's picks for the three underrated movies on Max that you need to watch in June include one of Julia Roberts' best rom-coms, a horror remake that really delivers, and a comic book action film that has some serious star power.

The 31 best sitcoms on Netflix right now (June 2024)
The gang from How I Met Your Mother hanging out at McLaren's Pub.

Netflix has loaded up with so many older sitcoms in 2024 that it's easier to overlook just how lean this year's original programing is. Tires, a new sitcom that was recently launched and subsequently renewed by Netflix, is one of the rare exceptions. But it's already been overshadowed by How I Met Your Mother, which is back on Netflix after an extended period away.

How I Met Your Mother now joins recent additions including Reba, Martin, The Jamie Foxx Show, and My Wife and Kids, as well as all-time classics like Seinfeld. Those shows are the ones that make the best sitcoms on Netflix a real destination for comedy fans. And it's nice to be able to put on something funny whenever we like.
