Netflix www.imdb.com
Netflix’s revolving door will bid goodbye to a host of shows and movies this June. Headlined by Jon Hamm’s Mad Men, here’s everything leaving the platform. After an impressive month of May, flooded with top-quality content, Netflix is heading into the summer with an even better arsenal, featuring shows like 13 Reasons Why and Pokemon: Journeys. However, all good things must come to an end. And this time, we’ll have to bid adieu to a few of our favorites. Some of these include Mad Man and Final Destination, which are classics and still boast a stellar fanbase. Continuing on the same note, here’s everything leaving Netflix this June.
Hotel Beau Séjour (June 1) www.imdb.com
01
Hotel Beau Séjour (June 1)
The supernatural Belgian drama series first aired in 2017, and its second season is scheduled to release sometime next year. It focuses on a teenager named Kato Hoeven, who wakes up to see her dead body. What follows is twisted in every sense, as she tries to unravel the reason behind her fate. Featuring 10 episodes, the show is an intriguing watch for this genre lovers.
Gentlemen and Gangsters (June 1) www.imdb.com
02
Gentlemen and Gangsters (June 1)
Having an above-average rating and eight episodes in one season, the Swedish-drama series covers the life of writer Klas Östergren, who locks himself in a Stockholm apartment to begin compiling the fascinating tale of Henry Morgan. Klas had befriended Henry and enjoyed his company, before being pulled into a dark world by Henry’s brother, Leo. The story’s transition is quite beautiful, we must say.
Cannabis (June 1) www.imdb.com
03
Cannabis (June 1)
As the name suggests, the central character is marijuana (well… stolen marijuana). Two tons of shipment goes missing in the Mediterranean and has ramifications spanning three countries. The show is no Narcos, but delivers excellent performances and highlights drug trafficking in Spain and France. Unlike so many others of its kind, Cannabis doesn’t really have a good or bad guy, giving it a unique touch.
Power Battle Watch Car (June 1) tv.apple.com
04
Power Battle Watch Car (June 1)
The Korean animated series with 50-plus episodes narrates the brave story of its heroes and their Watch Cars. Jino, the lead character, aspires to become the champion at the Watch Car Battle League.

Los 10 años de Peter Capusotto (June 1)
Recipient of multiple Martín Fierro Awards, the Argentinian show has eight seasons full of traditional and black humor with sly digs at the country’s social eccentricity. Diego Capusotto is the lead man and host, who uses hilarious sketches and music videos to mock the established albeit with respect to rock musicians. Every character has a hysterical and unorthodox ideology that laughs in the face of Argentina’s social order.
Kitten Rescuers (June 2) www.rspca.org.uk
06
Kitten Rescuers (June 2)
One for feline lovers, the one-off show stars cat-enthusiast and comedian Jo Brand, who moves around appreciating the daring work of animal rescuers and volunteers. Featuring eight episodes, the show has an array of heart-warming moments of bravery and compassion. Brand, meanwhile, brings her calculated sense of humor when needed, making for an absolute delight of a show. Too bad it doesn’t have a second season.
Comedy Bang! Bang! (June 2) www.imdb.com
07
Comedy Bang! Bang! (June 2)
Based on Scott Aukerman’s popular podcast, the show portrays celebrity guests playing different characters or themselves. It overflows with random humor and is yet hysterical at every juncture. Bandleader and co-host Reggie Watts is just as delightful with his timely interventions, although he left the show halfway through the fourth season. Fun fact: Aukerman claimed he got the show’s idea in a dream when he was a toddler.

Bringing Sexy Back (June 2) www.imdb.com
11
Bringing Sexy Back (June 2)
Each of its eight episodes focuses on individuals who must “bring sexy back” in their lives.

Diva Brides (June 2)
Wedding and stress don’t mix; that’s pretty much what this British reality series hints right at the start.

Probably the biggest of the lot, the serial award-winning American show is a sensational hit and binge-worthy even to this day.
