Netflix is looking to continue expanding its massive subscriber base this summer by adding thrilling new TV shows and movies. While the world's most popular streaming service plans on bringing in a wildly large number of titles that are sure to have viewers amped, there are several options that stand out above the rest.
Check out some of the best titles coming to Netflix this summer here.
Now halfway through June, Netflix has already released a slew of new content that became available just this month. Most notably, Orange Is The New Black returned on June 9th. The Jenji Kohan show is now in its fifth season and is set during a four-day prison riot.
The star-studded cast includes: Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman), Michael Harney (Sam Healy), Uzo Aduba (Suzanna 'Crazy Eyes' Warren), Danielle Brooks (Tasha 'Taystee' Jefferson), Kate Mulgrew (Galina 'Red' Reznikov), Nick Sandow (Joe Caputo), Yael Stone (Lorna Morello), and Dascha Polanco (Dayanara Diaz).
Another huge release in June was the Netflix original series G.L.O.W., which was also created by the team behind Orange Is The New Black. The show's synopsis reads: "In 1980s LA, a crew of misfits reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling."
Other titles to check out in June include:
- Flaked (Season 2) – June 2nd
- Shimmer Lake (Movie) – June 9th
- Oh, Hello On Broadway – June 13th
- CounterPunch (Documentary) – June 16th
- You Get Me (Movie) – June 23rd
- Chis D’Elia: Man On Fire – June 27th
As if this wasn't enough to get you amped, the rest of the summer will only get better. Take a look through the rest of the exciting titles coming in the next couple months below.
The month of July will see the release of three Netflix Originals. For all the anime lovers out there, a new series based on a Castlevania adaptation is set to hit the streaming service next month. The show, which is based on the classic video games series, is set to drop on Netflix on July 7th.
Netflix is bringing its Marvel shows together in the upcoming series The Defenders. It will group together the heroes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Over the course of the past three years, each of the four superheroes were given their own solo shows and this will be the epic team-up series that the fans have been waiting for. The Defenders is set to be a 10-episode series.
Disney's deal with Netflix will continue throughout the summer months. The streaming service will see the additions of several beloved movies that were released around Christmas time in 2016. For starters, Dwayne Johnson's animated pic Moana will arrive on June 19th.
While it has yet to be confirmed, Netflix will likely get last year's action-packed addition to the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Rogue One. Because the Felicity Jones flick was released shortly after Moana, it's possible that Disney will look at putting Rogue One on Netflix in July.
Along the same line of thought, Zootopia premiered in March and showed up on Netflix in August. Therefore, it's possible that Disney will release the live-action Beauty and the Beast over the summer too, given that it debuted in theaters on March 17, 2017.
Here's a list of the shows confirmed and expected to hit Netflix this summer:
- Arrow (Season 5) – June 1st, 2017
- The 100 (Season 4) – June 1st, 2017
- Supergirl (Season 2) – June 2017
- iZombie (Season 3) – August 2017
- The Originals (Season 4) – July/August 2017
- Reign (Season 4) – July/August 2017
Particularly in the UK, Netflix picks up many awesome exclusives. The company has a deal to make all-new episodes of several fan favorite shows available for streaming the day after they air in their original country. Check out some of the best weekly exclusive shows to look out for below:
- Better Call Saul (Season 3) new episodes Tuesdays
