Streaming is probably one of the biggest things that kept us sane during that 2 month long Circuit Breaker period. Even as we enter Phase One, there’s plenty of new content coming to Netflix. Here’s our picks on the top 5 shows you should watch this June:
Space Force - Released 29 May
Steve Carell makes his long awaited return to TV since his last role as Michael Scott on The Office, with a boisterous adventure that takes us to the stars. The series follows General Mark R. Naird (played by Carell) as he assembles a team to create a sixth branch of the Armed Services: The Space Force. Their first mission? To get troops on the moon 🌚
With a lovable cast like Ben Schwartz (Parks & Recreation), Jimmy O Yang (Crazy Rich Asians) and Lisa Kudrow (Friends), you know you’re in for a good laugh.
The Order (Season 2) - Releases 18 June
While we wait for the next season of The Witcher to arrive, you can get your fill of werewolves and magic by watching season two of The Order. In case you missed the first season, the story follows Jack Morton (played by Jake Manley) on his quest to join a secret society of magicians known as the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose (it’s a mouthful I know). Little does Jack know that the Order is not what it seems, hiding deep secrets and battles against creatures of the night.
With 10 new episodes dropping on 18 June, this is one series is you should definitely put on your watchlist.
Mr Iglesias (Season 2) - Releases 21 June
If you’re a 90s kid growing up, I guarantee you’ve watched one of Fluffy’s AKA Gabriel Iglesias’s comedy sketches. Known for his hilarious impressions and over the top reactions, Fluffy takes his stand up charm and brings it straight to Netflix with his series Mr Iglesias.
Watch Fluffy take on the role of a public school teacher trying to save his students from being expelled by mean Assistant Principal (played by Oscar Nuñez). The first season was super light hearted and reminded me a lot of Secondary School, having my first crush and wondering about my future. 100% recommended for some laughs and nostalgia.
Jo Koy - In His Elements - Releases 12 June
Netflix has been going hard on the comedy specials lately and one of my personal favorites are the ones by Jo Koy. The Filipino-American stand-up comedian is super relatable with stories that range from his mom beating him at Wii Sports and a comical look at Asian culture.
If you’re looking to just unwind after a long day at work, this comedy special may be just what you need. Oh and if you’re craving more jokes with that local flavor do check out the Discover tab on the Circles.Life app to get tickets to three amazing virtual comedy shows this June.
It’s Okay to Not Be Okay - Releases 20 June
Is exactly what we need to hear as we live through the craziness of 2020. This heartwarming K-Drama starring Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji promises a tale of healing both emotional and psychological scars experienced by their characters. Kim plays a caretaker working at a psychiatric ward where he encounters Seo who is an antisocial children’s book writer clueless about love.
I don’t know about you but I’m already ready with my box of tissues for when this drops on the 20th 😭
