The Netflix June 2017 release schedule looks impressive, it seems that movie lovers are going to have a busy month ahead. Well, we’re already over a week into the month, but for those who might have missed it, here are some movies and series that should not be missed.
Orange Is The New Black Season 5
A big part of the Netflix June 2017 line-up is the streaming giant’s hit prison comedy-drama series. After waiting for almost a year, fans will finally know what happened after that tense Season 4 cliffhanger, where Daya pointed a gun at a correctional officer, Humps.
Season 5 of Orange Is the New Black releases Friday, June 9. Season 5 contains 13 episode and is set right after that thrilling finale. It appears to be one bumpy and fast-paced season considering that the entire season covers just three hours of what happens after fourth season’s ending. And yes, the question of whether Daya pulled the trigger on Humps is finally answered.

My Only Love Song Season 1
The Korean fantasy-romance series My Only Love Song Season 1 is available starting June 9. It could be a perfect Korean series for romantics, as it involves a modern day pop star going back to the past — accidentally of course — and finding the man of her dreams.
Netflix new film Shimmer Lake releases June 9, along with OITNB and My Only Love. It is written and directed by Oren Uziel and stars Benjamin Walker, Wyatt Russell, and Rainn Wilson. Described as a crime thriller about a bank heist, it has an unusual aspect in that it is told backward.
Black Snow (Nieve Negra) 2017
Set in Argentina, Black Snow is directed by Martin Hodara and written by Leonel D’Agostino and Martin Hodara, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It’s about a not-so-happy family reunion between brothers Salvador and Marcos, which only happened out of the necessity of selling their land and dividing the proceeds. The cause of the rift happened a long time ago when Salvador was accused of killing another sibling.
Daughters of the Dust (1991)
Directed by Julie Dash, Daughters of the Dust makes it to Netflix’s June 2017 line-up. It is a story of three generations of female Gullah islanders on St. Simons Island off the South Carolina-Georgia coast. Ultimately, it is a battle of tradition and the modern way of life as the women try to decide whether to stay on the island or head to the mainland.

Quantico Season 2
Fans of actress Priyanka Chopra will definitely approve of Netflix’s decision to air Quantico Season 2 starting June 14. Previously, there have been talks regarding the uncertain future of the series. Thankfully, the series was greenlit when ABC decided to renew it for a third season last May, Deadline reported. To fans, that ultimately means another season of Alex Parrish to look forward to. Until then, rewatching the second season on Netflix is probably the best way to spend the wait.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 4 (2016)
Another action series, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, made the cut for Netflix’s June line-up and will be released on June 15. The fourth season is also the latest of the action-superhero series, delving deeper into the cool but sometimes confusing Life Model Decoy (LMD) plot. It also introduced a new Ghost Rider played by Gabriel Luna. A fifth season is reported to be in the works and is slated for release in January of next year.
El Chapo Season 1 (2017)
The first season of the biographical crime thriller series will be available on Netflix starting June 16. The series is based on the life of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Played by Marco de la O on the small screen, El Chapo once headed the Sinaloa Cartel, said to be the “largest drug trafficking organization in the world,” according to Deadline.
Other notable inclusions to the Netflix June releases are Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 (2016) and Scandal Season 6 (2016) coming on June 17, Disney’s Moana (2016) on June 19, and a new Netflix original, Gypsy Season 1, which debuts on June 30.
