Coming to Netflix in June: NOLA Dating, Spooky Summertime Streaming, and More

By: Dave Randall

Time may seem hard to gauge nowadays, so, to help you keep your June calendar on track, here are a few select Netflix coming attractions, as well as approaching deadlines on shows and movies leaving the streaming platform.

You'll know June 1 has arrived when "spooky summertime streaming" begins with family classics Casper and ET: The Extra Terrestrial. After the kids go to bed, parents can enjoy psychological thrillers such as Jonathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs and Martin Scorsese's Cape Fear.

New Orleanians may especially enjoy a voyeuristic return to the singles scene in Dating Around, available June 12. Set in New Orleans, this series, in its second season, portrays the kind of eternal love found only as the result of five blind dates.

Netflix's first original Spike Lee joint will be available June 12. Da 5 Bloods is the story of a group of African American Vietnam War vets who risk a return to 'Nam seeking not only the one man they left behind, but a lost treasure.

Original content continues with American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy's political comedy, The Politician, back for a second season on June 19. Putting their lesson of "little details matter" into practice, Queer Eye fans can reunite with the Fab Five for their fifth season on June 5. Another notable original is Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams's mockumentary spoof, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, available June 26.

Comedy fans don't have to wait until then to laugh. Start chuckling June 1 with the anti-Paul Blart: Mall Cop in Observe and Report, the ever-quotable Clueless, and The Disaster Artist, James Franco's take on the best worst movie ever, Tommy Wiseau's The Room. For another movie trying desperately to be taken seriously, check out Starship Troopers.

Get one last shake at the campy Tremors movie series before all five of them vanish on June 30. AMC's iconic series Mad Men will no longer be available after June 9, and it's last call for all 11 seasons of Cheers on June 30. Maybe by then, we can all actually go to a real bar. Speaking of questioning what's "real," June 30 is the last day to stream The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions.

Fuller House: The Farewell Season will be available for streaming on June 2. The show's ending may or may not be related to actress Lori Loughlin pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud in 2019's college admissions scandal. To relive past true crime media frenzies, watch Netflix's documentary series, Trial By Media.

Netflix is releasing dozens more movies, series, and documentaries in June. All you need now is to set up your home theater.
