The days on the calendar are about to tick over from May to June, and you know what that means…
It means that Netflix, the streaming service of all that is good and bingeable is about to drop a whole lot of new TV shows and movies onto their platform for you to enjoy.
But sometimes, with that amount of new content dropping into your Netflix queue, working out what to watch first can be a daunting and difficult task.
So here’s a breakdown of the three new Netflix shows dropping June that are a non-negotiable to watch, the shows that you’ll want to call in sick to work for, all so you can continue watching them.
From the second season of a cult classic we’ve been dying to binge to Australia’s break-out comedy performer, here’s how you’ll be spending the month of June.
If you’re a fan of Mindy Kaling (which, of course you are, you’re not a monster) then you’ll love her new TV series Champions, which is dropping on Netflix in June.
Champions is an NBC comedy created by the wickedly clever Mindy Kaling and Charlie Grandy, a writer who worked with Kaling on both The Office and The Mindy Project,
The series follows Michael Patel (played by J.J. Totah) an openly gay teenager who moves from Cleveland to New York City to attend a performing arts school. However, when he arrives in New York with his mother Priya (played by Kaling herself in a recurring role) his plan for attending the school falls through and he is left to work out a back-up plan.
Which leads Priya to seek out Michael’s long lost father Vince Cook (played by The Mindy Project star Anders Holm), introducing Michael to the father he never knew he had.
Vince is a fun-loving bachelor who owns a gym and never thought about being a father until his high school girlfriend showed up on his doorstep with their son and asked him to take care of him so he could attend his dream school.
This comedy is packed with Kaling’s signature wit and emotion and features a cast of diverse and likeable characters. It’s the ultimate cosy binge watch.
The full first season of Champions will drop on Netflix on Tuesday June 2.
