Another week, and another busy period for Netflix, with the entertainment giant putting out 24 movies and television series. Amongst the highlights for mid-June include the return of Black Summer and Elite for new seasons and Kevin Hart’s feature film Fatherhood. What, then, do we have to look forward to between the 14th and 20th?
First up, Black Summer is a prequel to the zombie hit Z Nation and explores the early events of the undead apocalypse. The first block of episodes ran in 2019, with all eight instalments of the follow-up season arriving on June 17th. Also out is the fourth part of Elite, the teen thriller that’s become one of the streamer’s most popular Spanish-language programs.
Other long-form material to enjoy as we continue into the summer months includes season 5 of Workin’ Moms, the second go-around of the South Korean Hospital Playlist and Chinese program The Rational Life. Younger viewers will also be getting Power Rangers Dino Fury, as well as fresh documentaries such as Penguin Town, and mindfulness experiment Unwind Your Mind.
In terms of exclusive pictures, Fatherhood sees Kevin Hart bringing up his baby daughter as a single parent after the tragic death of his wife shortly after their child is born. Based on a true story, this one will give the comedian a chance to flex his dramatic muscles. Similarly notable additions range from Russian romance Silver Skates to the perennially watchable Silver Linings Playbook.
