Another month, another host of excellent TV to devour whilst drinking Aperol Spritzes and enjoying barbecues and lazy light evenings and everything else June can throw at us.
Whilst May held the key to more episodes of Stranger Things and a whole new season of Workin’ Moms (yes, we’ve both devoured the entire 12 episodes already), June is looking perhaps slightly slower. Perhaps because we’re supposed to be outside rather than cosied up on the sofa?

Say hello to Netflix’s newest science fiction thriller film starring no other than Mr Chris Hemsworth. Set in the not-too-distant future, the film focuses on a prison facility where inmates are able to put themselves forward for experiments in order to reduce their sentences.

Umbrella Academy (season three)
The third season of the hugely popular futurist superhero show lands at the end of June.
