The 12 Best Things Coming to Netflix in June 2024

Who needs the beach when you’ve got a summer month full of great new sports docs, original films and, yes, more ‘Bridgerton’?

June’s the time for lazy, hazy days in the sun — and air-conditioned evenings on the sofa with some good TV. Netflix has you covered this month with a stacked slate of new releases that includes fascinating documentaries (How to Rob a Bank), original movies (Richard Linklater’s Hit Man) and a second helping of new Bridgerton episodes.

Coming June 5

How to Rob a Bank

In the 1990s, the Pacific Northwest was terrorized by a string of bank robberies that seemed to play out like something straight out of the movies, right down to the perpetrator’s garish masks and facial prosthetics. Fittingly, the increasingly frustrated police christened him “Hollywood.” This true crime docuseries traces his stunning robbery spree and how he eventually slipped up just enough to be caught.

Under Paris

Just as the Summer Olympics is set to kick off in Paris, Netflix serves up a yummy slice of B-movie fromage about a giant killer shark attacking the French capital. An intrepid scientist (The Artist’s Bérénice Bejo) sounds the warning bell, but the local politicians don’t listen until it’s too late and the Seine runs red with blood.

Coming June 7

Hit Man

Glen Powell segues from bickering with Sydney Sweeney in Anyone But You to playing a professor who pretends to be a professional killer in director Richard Linklater’s loopy new rom-com thriller. After falling for a sultry, slightly intense woman (Pacific Rim: Uprising’s Adria Arjona), he realizes that he’s taken his homicidal ruse a bit too far when she asks him to rub someone out for her.

Coming June 11

Tour de France: Unchained, Season 2

Netflix has taken its cameras behind the scenes in the worlds of auto racing (Formula 1: Drive to Survive), football (Quarterback) and golf (Full Swing). Now the most famous bicycling competition in the world gets a new season, which delves into the sport’s doping scandals, ego-driven trash talk, and high-speed spills and thrills. Who knew that competing for a snug yellow jersey was such a dirty business?

Coming June 12

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, Season 5

David Letterman (along with his lumberjack beard) is back for a new season of one-on-one chats with Miley Cyrus and the “Round Mound of Rebound” himself, Charles Barkley. Clocking in at just two episodes, it’s hard to really call this a “season,” but Letterman remains one of the last masters of the dying art of the in-depth interview.

King of Collectibles: The Goldin Touch, Season 2

The first season of this breezy reality series about Dan Goldin, the New Jersey maestro of big-ticket memorabilia auctions, was an unexpected delight, especially for viewers who grew up collecting baseball cards and want to know if they’re sitting on a gold mine (guilty as charged). Now Goldin and his team of treasure hunters are back for a new round of million-dollar windfalls. If someone else is writing this article next month, you’ll know who cashed in on their Reggie Jackson rookie card.

Coming June 13

Bridgerton, Season 3, Part 2

Quickly following the May rollout of Season 3, Part 1, the swoony series’ back half takes us further into the romances, relationships and rivalries at Mayfair. And not a moment too soon! Will the identity of Lady Whistledown ruin things between Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) and Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan)? Will the Dowager Violet find love again? Will we have to wait this long again for Season 4? You’ll have to tune in to find out.

Coming June 18

Outstanding: A Comedy Revolution

The history of LGBTQ+ stand-up comedy and the many struggles of queer comics once afraid to come out of the closet and take the stage is the focus of this star-studded documentary featuring interviews with Lily Tomlin, Rosie O’Donnell, Wanda Sykes, Hannibal Buress, Sandra Bernhard, Eddie Izzard, Tig Notaro and Margaret Cho.

Black Barbie: A Documentary

Hot on the (high) heels of Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie’s global box office sensation, this Shondaland documentary tells the story of three women who worked at Mattel and were responsible for the debut of Black Barbie in 1980. Directed by Lagueria Davis, the film highlights how important something as seemingly insignificant as a kids’ doll can be for representation and a generation’s self-esteem.

Coming June 20

America’s Sweethearts: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders

Frankly, I’m surprised this one took so long. Netflix’s latest original sports doc follows the 2023–2024 season of the Dallas Cowboys’ famous, star-spangled cheerleading squad. The cameras take us behind the scenes to show us how, for these women, the job is about a lot more than just smiling and waving a pair of pom-poms. A ton of hard work, athleticism and discipline goes into their performances, scrutinized by 90,000 fans (plus millions watching on TV). That’s pressure.

Coming June 21

Trigger Warning

Buckle up and get ready for Jessica Alba, action hero. In this high-octane thriller, the actor plays a Special Forces commando who returns to her hometown and becomes suspicious about the real cause of her father’s recent death. Could the police be involved? A local gang? And what about Anthony Michael Hall’s shady senator? One thing’s for sure, Alba’s hand-to-hand fight scenes make her look like the second coming of Jason Bourne.

Coming June 28

A Family Affair

Twelve years after they first hooked up in The Paperboy, Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron reunite in this rom-com about a young woman (Joey King) who discovers — and is mortified — that her mother (Kidman) and her movie star boss (Efron) are an item. A Family Affair is directed by Richard LaGravenese, who knows his way around on-screen romances, since he wrote the script for one of our all-time faves, The Bridges of Madison County.
