At the beginning of (and during) each month, Netflix adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Below, you’ll find our June 2018 new-on-Netflix recommendations along with a full list of new titles. For more comprehensive coverage of the best movies and TV shows available on Netflix, including our top picks from last month and updates on what’s leaving Netflix this month, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub.

This Month’s Highlights

Available June 26

For the chance to search your heart: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Is this the hill today’s nerds will die on? So be it: The Last Jedi is a fun, ballsy addition to the new Star Wars canon, with moving, empathetic performances from Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher supplementing a whole host of intrigue from the new characters. The story line packs the best twists in the franchise since we discovered Darth Vader was Luke’s father, and the casino-planet scene doesn’t drag as much as you remember it does. People, we’re about to be so inundated with mediocre Lucas-inspired product that the mere mention of the Force ten years from now will make us want to vomit. Enjoy the good ones while we have them, please, and don’t encourage the haters. Available June 26.

Available June 3

For the only comic who’s figured out how to anger everybody for the right reasons: The Break With Michelle Wolf

Sure, nobody needs yet another snarky political comedy show in the Trump era. But be honest: Doesn’t knowing that the host of Netflix’s new foray into the genre already brought the entire Washington Establishment to its knees make climbing aboard just a little more compelling? Even just Michelle Wolf’s brilliant stand-up, not to mention her past work with The Daily Show, would’ve been enough to make The Break one to watch. If she can also replicate the scorched-earth brilliance of her White House Correspondents’ Dinner set on a weekly basis, we could be looking at the first true heir to Jon Stewart’s throne. Available June 3, with new episodes every Sunday.

Available June 15

Because Gilliam madness is (finally) back in style: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Terry Gilliam has been dreaming the impossible dream far outside the realm of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. In 2009, he was faced with the task of cobbling together a big-budget fantasy epic whose star, Heath Ledger, had died midway through filming. But the wild part is, Gilliam’s solution — hire Jude Law, Colin Farrell, and Johnny Depp to each play different versions of Ledger’s character as he slips into various dream worlds — made the film a deeper, sadder, and richer experience, bringing it closer to its essential themes about magicians who transform their appearances in order to escape the real world. Available June 15.
