'I watch TV for a living. Here are 9 shows and movies you should definitely watch this month.'

First of all, how the heck have we reached the middle of the year already? 

And second, put aside your existential dread as time passes way too quickly and distract yourself with some great content, because the streaming platforms have delivered the goods with gusto this month. 

Many of our favourite shows are set to return, plus some new bangers in the mix and a handful of highly anticipated movies — from a period drama done a little differently and a documentary going deep into the darkest moments of one one of the world's biggest stars, to a hefty serving of "Yes, Chef!"

Here they are: the best new shows and movies coming to the streaming platforms in June 2024.

In what many will call the longest month in history waiting for the split third season of Bridgerton to return for part two, we can all breathe a sigh of relief because the 'Ton is back, baby.

At the end of season three part one, we were left with that carriage scene, which saw our deeply yearned-for #Polin finally get their s**t together. Romantically speaking.

With part two of season three's return, we may just get an answer to Colin's question, "For God’s sake, Penelope Featherington. Are you going to marry me or not?"

And if there is no answer, we ride at dawn for Shonda Rhimes' mansion.


Bridgerton season three, part two begins streaming with episodes five and six on June 13, on Netflix.

I Am: Celine Dion.

If you grew up singing My Heart Will Go On in your bedroom, chances are Celine Dion holds a special place in your soul. Over the past few years, the singer has been dealing with her diagnosis of Stiff-Person Syndrome (SPS), which has put a stop to her professional career.


In I Am: Celine Dion she gives fans an intimate look at her struggles as she battles this debilitating condition. At the same time, we see Dion's grit and determination shine through as she pledges to return to the stage in the future.

I Am: Celine Dion premieres on Amazon Prime Video June 25.

House of the Dragon.

There's always a battle for the throne, and season two of House of the Dragon promises to bring more drama, with the return of a stellar cast, including Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans and actor of the moment Emma D'Arcy.

If you're not afraid of spoilers, we can look to the original text of George R.R. Martin's Fire & Blood novel to get some clues as to what we might expect in this follow-up season. Will Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen be out for blood after the death of her son? What will go down at the battle at Rook's Rest? And will King's Landing fall? All will be revealed in due course.

Watch House of the Dragon season two on Binge from June 17.

The Bear.

Carmy, Carmy, Carmy — what are you going to do now? Throughout season two, we were feeling hopeful that things were on the up and up for Carmen 'Carmy' Berzatto (played by Jeremy Allen White) with a new restaurant set to open and a blossoming romance with Claire (Molly Gordon). But as we all know the end of the season things were low-key going up in flames.

There are a lot of big question marks going into season three and a lot of different (read: very watchable) avenues the characters could go down. Will Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) spread his wings after tapping into a deep-seated knack for the hospitality world; and will writers give in to the millions of desperate pleas from the public and give Carmy and Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) the romance we need?

Grab an Italian beef sandwich and settle in, because this kitchen is about to get even hotter.

Stream season three of The Bear on Disney+ from June 27. 

Hotel Cocaine.

Remember back in 2015 when Netflix's hit series about Pablo Escobar, Narcos, all had us in a chokehold? Well, Hotel Cocaine is here to fill that void with a salacious dramatisation of what went down in 1970s and '80s Miami, at the height of the cocaine boom.

Danny Pino plays Roman Compte, the Cuban general manager of the Mutiny Hotel, which was a hotspot for all things party and nightlife as cocaine had the city in its grip. This eight-part series will take you on a wild ride that gets high (no... pun intended) and then dips low into the underbelly of a city that doesn't sleep.


Hotel Cocaine premieres June 17 on Stan.

Hit Man.

Look out Ryan Gosling — Glen Powell is coming for your crown as the next approachably-handsome-action-hero-who-is-also-rather-witty. 


If you first fell in love with Powell in Everybody Wants Some!! you'd be aware what a talent he is. Over the past decade Powell's star has firmly been on the rise and the actor now gets his shot at leading action hero status in Netflix's Hit Man.

Based on a true story, this film is all about a guy who discovers he's rather good at being a fake hit man. Of course comedy ensues, there's a passionate romance in the mix, and all of it makes for a great watch with Powell charmingly taking the reins.

Stream Hit Man on Netflix from June 7.

My Lady Jane.

If you love sassy period dramas like The Great, then pop this on your to-watch list immediately. My Lady Jane is based on a YA novel and gives a different spin on the history books by reimagining Lady Jane Grey's fate.

Expect to see lots of flipping of the bird, colourful language and steamy dalliances as Lady Jane (Emily Bader) attempts to overthrow the bad guys.

Watch My Lady Jane from June 27 on Amazon Prime Video.

Am I OK?

Dakota Johnson stars in a film about a woman in her 30s who is having a bit of an identity crisis. Relatable? Very.

Lucy (Johnson) has hit a bit of a snag when she suddenly realises that perhaps she isn't heterosexual. In Am I OK?, she explores her sexuality in an effort to find out who she really is. 

The film is based on the real-life experiences of screenwriter Lauren Pomerantz, who used to be a writer for The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Which makes this movie all the more intriguing given the "that's not the truth, Ellen" saga of 2019, which will forever keep us up at night.

Am I OK? premieres June 6 on Binge.
