What's new on Netflix UK for June 2022

God’s Favourite Streaming Service?

by Andy Bassett

With job cuts, axed shows and twitchy subscribers to contend with, Netflix turns to some of its proven mainstays with Adam Sandler and Chris Hemsworth original movies and a Korean remake of one of the streamer’s most successful international shows.

Updated 01-Jun-2022: The Man from Toronto (24th June; new)

Updated 05-Jun-2022: Motherless Brooklyn (13th June; moved from 15th Jun) - The Craft: Legacy (20th June; new) - The Future Of (21st June; new) - Irresistible (26th June; new) - Spiral: From the Book of Saw (28th Jun; new) - Widows (30th June; new)

Updated 07-Jun-2022: Intimacy S1 (10th June; new) - Blasted (28th June; new)


Netflix has plenty of A list superstars it has signed up to whom it can turn for crowd pleasing content which regularly posts high or even record breaking viewer numbers (take a bow Mr. Reynolds with your three entries in Netflix’s top ten hall of film fame).

With Extraction a huge hit in 2020 - and a sequel in the works - June sees the return of Chris Hemsworth as a far more morally dubious character than usual in hallucinogenic mystery thriller Spiderhead which also boasts Miles (Top Gun: Maverick) Teller and Jurnee (Birds of Prey) Smollet in the cast. Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky is getting in on the Netflix original film action too with her own kick-ass adventure flick, Interceptor.

Adam Sandler was one of the first Hollywood stars to publicly get into bed with Netflix and his output for the streamer has been hit and miss with the likes of Murder Mystery Movie, Uncut Gems and Hubie Halloween being sporadically rewarding. Hustle sees him returning to his more dramatic side as a basketball coach who takes a gifted but troubled young player under his wing.

Elsewhere, after The Starling and Thunder Force, Melissa McCarthy returns to Netflix with comedy series God’s Favorite Idiot and season three of The Umbrella Academy sees the Hargreaves facing off against a rival superhero outfit.

Rowan Atkinson is back on our screens with his specialist brand of physical comedy in a series of slapstick shorts, Man vs. Bee and Spain’s hugely popular Money Heist series is being given a South Korean makeover with trips-off-the-tongue Money Heist: Korea - Joint Economic Area.

There’s the usual smattering of anime (with Spriggan and Bastard!! Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy, both getting debut seasons set in the usual post apocalyptic milieu), reality/game shows (Floor is Lava, Iron Chef: Quest for a Legend) and documentaries (on actor/singer Jennifer Lopez and civil rights lawyer Ben Crump) so there should be something for everyone.


So, let's take a closer look at what’s on offer on Netflix UK in June bearing in mind that although we’ve tried to be as UK specific as possible, streaming dates can change, content can sometimes be territory specific and shows can even get changed by Netflix itself.

Make sure you come back as we’ll be updating the article when more films and TV shows get announced.

Interceptor is directed by Matthew Reilly who co-wrote it with Stuart (Collateral, 30 Days of Night) Beattie. Lead actress Elsa Pataky spent up to five hours a day training for the role with husband Chris Hemsworth, who came on board as an executive producer.

Only she can awaken Dark Schneider a legendary wizard and former leader of the four riders who is currently trapped within the body of Yoko’s childhood friend Lucien. But the powerful sorcerer’s previous plans to rule the world could render an alliance with him somewhat shaky.

Based on one of the best selling manga series of all time (over 30 million copies sold), the whole shebang includes names like Anthrasax, Metallicana, Dark Schneider, Bon Jovina with character references to Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, Diamond Head’s Sean Harris, ex-Helloween singer Kai Hansen and former Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (for those with an eye (ear?) for metal minutiae) plus with all the scanty outfits, mighty muscles, dungeons, dragons and pounding heavy metal soundtrack, this appears to be a completely irony free zone! Hoorah!
