June is filled with some exciting new shows and movies to stream, including the last season of Mindy Kaling's Netflix series Never Have I Ever, the new Marvel show Secret Invasion starring Samuel L. Jackson (coming to Disney+), a new season of HBO's The Righteous Gemstones (on Crave in Canada) and Season 2 of the Canadian Prime Video comedy The Lake.
But with so much new content on streaming sites, we're also losing access to a lot of great TV and films on streaming sites in Canada. This includes the nostalgic Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movie It Takes Two being removed from Netflix, along with the original Full House sitcom.
Never Have I Ever, June 8
Canadian Netflix star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan takes on the role of Devi for the last time with Season 4 of Never Have I Ever premiering on Netflix June 8, the final 10-episode season of the series. After spending much of the previous seasons exploring her feelings for both Paxton (Darren Barnet) and Ben (Jaren Lewison), we'll find out where Devi's romances stand as she reaches the end of high school.
Black Mirror, June 15
We're finally getting the return of Charlie Brooker’s groundbreaking anthology series, the sixth season of Black Mirror. Consisting of five episode, the official synopsis of the season promises that this will be "the most unpredictable, unclassifiable and unexpected yet." This season stars Canadian actor Annie Murphy, in addition to Aaron Paul, Anjana Vasan, Auden Thornton, Ben Barnes, Josh Hartnett, Kate Mara, Michael Cera, Monica Dolan, Myha'la Herrold, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, Rory Culkin, Salma Hayek Pinault, Samuel Blenkin and Zazie Beetz.
Glamorous, June 22
The glorious Kim Cattrall stars in the upcoming Netflix series Glamorous. Marco Mejia (Miss Benny) is "a young gender non-conforming queer man whose life seems to be stuck in place." That's until a job comes Marco's way with makeup mogul Madolyn Addison (Cattrall). As the synopsis teases, "it's Marco's first chance to figure out what he wants out of life, who he actually is, and what it really means for him to be queer."
Nimona, June 30
Based on the best selling graphic novel by ND Stevenson, the animated film Nimona lands on Netflix June 30. When a knight named Ballister Boldheart (Riz Ahmed) is framed for a crime, the only one who can help him is Nimona (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teen who is also a shapeshifting creature that Ballister has been trying to destroy.
Shows, movies being removed from Netflix Canada
On June 2, Netflix will be removing two Adam Sandler movies, the iconic Billy Madison and the streaming site removed the 2012 film That’s My Boy, which also starred Andy Samberg, Susan Sarandon and Leighton Meester.
For Millennial streamers, a massive loss will be felt with the 1995 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movie It Takes Two, also starring the late Kirstie Alley and Steve Guttenberg, has left Netflix. On the TV side of things, Netflix has also removed Full House, which also starred the Olsen twins.
Other comedies leaving Netflix Canada include Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator, I Don’t Know How She Does It with Sarah Jessica Parker, It’s Complicated starring Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin, Kick-Ass and Bad Neighbors.
If dramas are more of your style, No Country for Old Men with Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin and Woody Harrelson are being removed from Netflix. Along with Christopher Nolan's Inception with Leonardo DiCaprio, and the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie action/romance film Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
Avatar: The Way of Water, June 7
If you had been holding out to see James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water, you'll be able to stream it at home on Disney+ June 7. The film we waited 13 years for is visually spectacular and continues where we left off in the first film. It's a coming-of-age story for the Sully kids, but the family faces a threat that leads them to the sea tribe, the Metkayin.
Flamin' Hot, June 9 (Star)
Eva Longoria makes her directorial debut with Flamin' Hot, a film inspired by the story of Richard Montañez (played by Jesse Garcia), a Frito-Lay janitor who turned Flamin’ Hot Cheetos into the global phenomenon they are now. It also stars Tony Shalhoub, Matt Walsh, Annie Gonzalez and Dennis Haysbert.
Secret Invasion, June 21
Another Marvel thriller is hitting the Disney+ platform in June, Secret Invasion starring Samuel L. Jackson. Set in the present day Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Nick Fury (Jackson) learns of an Earth invasion by a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls. Fury joins Everett Ross (Martin Freeman), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and the Skrull Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), to "race against time" to stop the invasion and save humanity. The series also features actors Christopher McDonald, Emilia Clarke, Olivia Colman and Don Cheadle.
Home Improvement, June 28
For some nostalgia, all eight seasons of the 1990s sitcom Home Improvement will be available on Disney+ in June. The series follows the personal life of Tim "The Toolman" Taylor (Tim Allen), who hosts a home-improvement show "Tool Time." The show chronicles Tim's home life with his wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) and three boys Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan), Mark (Taran Noah Smith) and Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas).
The Lake, June 9
If you haven't caught up to the Canadian Prime Video hit The Lake, you have some time before Season 2 premieres on June 9. The second season of Canada's first Amazon Original scripted series begins with Justin (Jordan Gavaris) and Riley (Travis Nelson) taking a major step in their relationship, while Billie (Madison Shamoun) is back at the lake. But things turn into an utter disaster when the beloved boathouse goes up in flames. Meanwhile, Maisy-May (Julia Stiles) is dealing with her own personal nightmare, sharing the lake house with her mother Mimsy (Lauren Holly).
Cocaine Bear, June 24
The infamous film Cocaine Bear, Elizabeth Banks' movie, will be available to watch on Prime Video in June. It's inspired by a story from 1985 of a drug runner's plane crashing and a bear eating the cocaine, and stars Keri Russell, Alden Ehrenreich, O'Shea Jackson Jr. and the late Ray Liotta.
Jack Ryan, June 30
The fourth and final season of the the series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, starring John Krasinski, closes out the month of June on Prime Video, boasting Jack's most dangerous season yet. As the new CIA Acting Deputy Director Jack has the task of "unearthing internal corruption," which leads to the discovery of suspicious black ops that threaten the country. Through his team's investigation, things are even worse with the meeting of a drug cartel with a terrorist organization. As the official synopsis for the series teases, this reveals "a conspiracy much closer to home and testing our hero’s belief in the system he has always fought to protect."
Shows, movies being removed from Prime Video Canada
There are some big losses on Prime Video in June, primarily the legendary series The O.C. set to be removed in its entirety on June 22.
On June 30, the 2003 version of The Italian Job, with Donald Sutherland, Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron, will be removed from the site. Jennifer Love Hewitt's series The Client List will also be leaving the platform on the same date.
The Idol, June 4
It's been next to impossible to avoid the controversy surrounding the HBO show The Idol, starring Toronto's own Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, alongside Lily-Rose Depp. Depp plays Jocelyn, a pop star who's ready for a comeback after having a nervous breakdown. She ends up getting sucked into the world of nightclub promoter Tedros (Tesfaye), who actually runs a sex-fuelled cult.
According to Rolling Stone, the production saw dramatic changes when Sam Levinson came on board, after director Amy Seimetz's sudden exit. An anonymous crew member was quoted in Rolling Stone saying it turned into a show about "a man who gets to abuse this woman and she loves it," with another production member saying, "it was like any rape fantasy that any toxic man would have in the show — and then the woman comes back for more because it makes her music better."
The Righteous Gemstones, June 18
The Righteous Gemstones is by far one of the best comedies to sink your teeth into, created by Danny McBrdie and also starring John Goodman, Adam Devine, Edi Patterson, Cassidy Freeman and Tony Cavalero. The series follows the wacky, extreme and extravagant life of the wealthy televangelist Gemstone family.
In Season 3, Eli Gemstone (Goodman) has officially retired, leaving his kids to run the church. The nine-episode season also marks the introduction of several new cast members, including Emmy Award-winner Kristen Johnston and Steve Zahn.
And Just Like That ..., June 22
The women of Sex and the City are back for more with the premiere of Season 2 of And Just Like That... in June. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis are all returning, in addition to John Corbett's return as Carrie's ex Aidan Shaw. As the trailer shows, Charlotte’s daughter Lily says she’s ready to lose her virginity, while a "MILF List" being circulated around the school, and things are heating up between Miranda and Che. Variety has also confirmed that Kim Cattrall will return as Samantha, with a cameo in Season 2 of the show.
