This month is like a homecoming for Netflix fans. Black Mirror, the Emmy-winning anthology series imagining the dark side of new technology, returns after a four-year hiatus. And that’s not the only old friendship that subscribers can rekindle this month. The nature series Our Planet with David Attenborough, 97, has a second season, the supernatural series Manifest wraps up and Arnold Schwarzenegger, 75, opens up in a three-part docuseries. Even as he looks back on his remarkable life, the star’s not ready to say, “Hasta la vista, baby.”

Coming June 1

The Days (Netflix original)

“It’s going to be another Chernobyl,” one technician says in this eight-part drama series based on the deadly nuclear accident after an earthquake and tsunami disabled three of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi reactors in 2011. The question is whether this show will be as smart and gripping as HBO’s award-winning Chernobyl limited series.

Coming June 2

Manifest, Season 4 — Part 2 (Netflix original)

This supernatural drama series — about the passengers and crew of an airplane who suddenly reappear five years after they’ve been presumed dead — has had a supernatural journey all its own: Canceled by NBC in 2021 after three seasons, it became a megahit for Netflix, which green-lighted a fourth and final season split into two parts. The final 10 episodes are landing, just in time for the “Death Day” that is central to the show’s twisty mythology.

Coming June 7

Arnold (Netflix original)

Arnold Schwarzenegger promised he’d be back. And now he is, in a three-part docuseries exploring the 75-year-old’s remarkable and improbable journey from bodybuilding champion to box office megastar to governor of California.

Coming June 8

Tour de France: Unchained, Season 1 (Netflix original)

In recent years, Netflix has produced gripping docuseries about sports, from Formula 1 racing to PGA golf to pro tennis. The producer of Formula 1: Drive to Survive is pedaling an eight-part series about last summer’s Tour de France, with access to eight of the 22 cycling teams that competed for glory on the steep roads of the French countryside.

Coming June 14

Our Planet II (Netflix original)

The first season of this docuseries won two Emmys for its extraordinary scenes of the natural world and the thought-provoking narration by David Attenborough. The nonagenarian legend returns to host the series, which focuses its cameras on a whole new swath of the world and its wonders.

Extraction 2 (Netflix original)

Chris Hemsworth’s black-ops mercenary Tyler Rake is back, this time rescuing the battered family of a Georgian gangster. Former stunt performer Samuel Hargrave returns to direct the mayhem, which promises the same nonstop action of the 2020 graphic-novel-inspired original.

Coming June 19

Take Care of Maya (Netflix original)

This documentary, streaming days after premiering at the Tribeca Festival, follows the 2016 case of Jack and Beata Kowalski, whose 10-year-old daughter, Maya, was taken from them and declared a ward of the state. It was suspected that Maya, who had been diagnosed with a neurological condition known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), was a victim of child abuse — leading to a legal and emotional nightmare for her parents.

Coming June 23

The Perfect Find (Netflix original)

Gabrielle Union stars in this rom-com as a former fashion designer in her 40s who’s so down on her luck that she takes a job at a fashion magazine run by her frenemy (Aisha Hinds). There, she winds up falling for a twentysomething videographer — who happens to be her boss’s son.

Run Rabbit Run (Netflix original)

Sarah Snook (Succession) stars in this creepy thriller as a single mom whose 7-year-old daughter inexplicably develops the personality and memories of her mom’s sister — an animal-loving girl who disappeared without a trace at age 7. This one looks unnerving, and not just because Snook is talking in her native Australian accent.

Coming June 29

The Witcher, Season 3 — Volume 1 (Netflix original)

Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich promised that unlike Season 2, this season’s episodes will more closely hew to Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy saga Sword of Destiny, following the adventures of beast hunter Geralt of Rivia. Fans are anxious because these are the last episodes starring Henry Cavill, who is handing off his sword to Liam Hemsworth for Season 4. (The second batch of episodes will drop in July.)

June dates to be announced:

Break Point, Season 1 — Part 2 (Netflix original)

More sports are coming at us.

Look out for behind-the-scenes footage of Serena Williams’ final matches, as well as the new challengers to Novak Djokovic’s dominance of the men’s game. (The first episodes landed in January.)

Black Mirror, Season 6 (Netflix original)

After four long years, Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones return with five new episodes in their brilliant Twilight Zone update about the perils of the high-tech near-future (or alternative versions of the past).
