The Best TV Shows And Movies Coming To Netflix In June 2022

With "Stranger Things" season 4 and "Obi-Wan Kenobi" upon us and the widely-praised "Top Gun: Maverick" hitting theaters, summer might as well begin now (even if we're still more than three weeks away from the official start of the season). But if you're a vampire like me who tries to avoids the sun or just need a break from playing volleyball with your pals, you can always stay indoors and see what Netflix has to offer.

Once you're done making your way through the first part of an extra-long visit to the Upside-Down, Netflix has plenty of worthy offerings to check out come the rest of June. No doubt, "The Umbrella Academy" fans have already reserved June 22 for diving into season 3 after a two-year wait since their favorite time-traveling oddball superheroes this side of "Legends of Tomorrow" last hit the small screen. Alternatively, you could revisit "Titanic" before James Cameron's romantic epic formally turns a quarter-century old in December or (re)traumatize yourself by (re)watching Frank Darabont's chilling 2007 film version of "The Mist." Those in the mood for even more Stephen King can also check out Andy Muschietti's first "IT" movie when it drops around the middle of the month.

Whatever your flavor (did I mention there's a new season of "Floor is Lava?"), there's lots to choose from. Here's a breakdown of everything that's coming to Netflix in June 2022.

The Edge of Seventeen

Kelly Fremon Craig's "The Edge of Seventeen" is easily one of the best teen coming of age dramedies from the past ten years. It's also a worthy successor to the high school cinema of John Hughes, doing away with the problematic elements of his work while still retaining their depiction of teenagers as young human beings who're simply trying to make their way in this wayward world of ours without the benefit of wisdom that comes with age. Hailee Steinfeld (as endearing and captivating as ever) stars as Nadine, a capable but highly chaotic 17-year old whose stormy relationship with the rest of her family takes a turn for the worst when her best friend (Haley Lu Richardson) begins dating her brother (Blake Jenner, whose presence is the only real blemish on this film). If that's not enough to get you onboard, Hayden Szeto is utterly adorkable as Nadine's admirer, Erwin, while Woody Harrelson nearly steals the movie as Nadine's teacher, a character whose sardonic manner is a big 2022 mood.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

Maybe it's the kick-butt "Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One" teaser being fresh on my mind, or perhaps it's due to Tom Cruise being back in a jet for "Top Gun: Maverick," but now feels like the right time to revisit Brad Bird's "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol." Bird's live-action 2011 feature film directing debut took the best parts of John Woo's "Mission: Impossible II" (Cruise putting it all on the table for his action scenes) and J.J. Abrams' "Mission: Impossible III" (Ethan Hunt having some real heart and Simon Pegg as Benji) and deftly married them with his skill at crafting top-notch set pieces in his animated movies. Christopher McQuarrie has gone on to evolve and refine this formula with his entries in the franchise, but it's "Ghost Protocol" that rejuvenated the property at a time when it was starting to falter. Plus, c'mon, Cruise swinging around the tallest building in the world for real will never get old.


Whichever way you feel about Adam Sandler's Happy Madison comedies, it's always worth getting excited for those rare occasions where The Sandman decides to shift gears into character actor mode. Blessedly, his new Netflix movie, "Hustle," appears to be such an occasion. The sports drama pairs Sandler with critically-acclaimed director Jeremiah Zagar ("We the Animals") and co-writer Will Fetters (2018's "A Star Is Born") for a tale about a washed-up scout (Sandler) who tries to help a small-time basketball player (Juancho Hernangómez) refine his raw talent and make it in the NBA. Sure, the plot sounds a little formulaic, but just because it's drawing from a familiar playbook doesn't mean the execution isn't there. (Ah, the sports puns are just too easy to make). Throw in an ensemble that includes Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Raúl Castillo, and Robert Duvall, and this one sounds promising enough on paper alone to merit a look.

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Fred Rogers is fondly remembered for his sincerity and kindness, and validly so. However, Morgan Neville's 2018 documentary film, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?," argues it was his ability to gently rattle the cage with his work on "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" that really made the children's TV host a vital and even radical figure of the 20th century. Whether he was addressing the assassination of public figures or tackling existential ennui, Rogers always found ways of making even the most difficult of topics accessible to his young audience and never spoke down to them. The movie also provides a more personal look at the man behind the sweaters without neglecting to paint him in a complicated light or depict the ways he was limited by the times he lived in. If you've ever felt yourself wondering what Fred Rogers would do if he were still alive today, Neville's moving film will teach you there's a much better question worth asking and answering.


Joseph Kosinski is a director who's always interested me, whether he's making weird Disney legacy sequels like "TRON: Legacy" ("Biodigital jazz, man!"), heady if not entirely successful Tom Cruise sci-fi movies ("Oblivion"), or a grounded drama about real-world heroes (the somewhat underrated firefighter biopic "Only the Brave"). He and Cruise are back in theaters with "Top Gun: Maverick," but Kosinski has also got an intriguing sci-fi thriller in the form of "Spiderhead" on the way. Scripted by "Deadpool" scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the film stars Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett as a pair of convicts who allow a shady scientist (Chris Hemsworth) to experiment on them with emotion-altering drugs in exchange for shorter prison sentences. Reese and Wernick's last sci-fi movie, "Life," was a bit of a mixed bag, but Kosinski's knack for blending stunning visuals with big ideas could prove to be the key to making this more than just a run-of-the-mill genre exercise.
