The onset of cooler weather means only one thing: it is time to give your couch groove a serious crack. Luckily for you, the stars have aligned, and June brings with it an impressive slate of new, exciting and diverse TV shows to stream in June. Whether you’re keen to get an insight into the life of an Olympian before the Tokyo games, or wanting to travel the world with Zac Efron, there’s a little something for everyone this winter.
The Best TV Shows To Stream in June
Head Above Water, Season 1
Amazon Prime Australia
After much debate, the Tokyo Olympic Games are beginning in July, and once again, the focus will be on Australia’s swim team. Head Above Water explores our history as a swimming powerhouse, following some of our most famous former, current and future swimming legends. Featured in the series are Thorpe AM, Olympic medallists Bronte Campbell OAM and Kyle Chambers OAM, and pop star turned Olympic hopeful Cody Simpson.
Dave, Season 2
Looking for something genuinely absurd to stream in June? Welcome to Dave. Rapper-slash-comedian Lil Dicky plays the titular character, and the show is essentially a retelling of Lil Dicky’s real life as he endeavours to become one of the all-time great rap stars. Bizarre yet hilarious, the second season promises to be just as wild as the first.
Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet
With freezing temperatures condemning you to life inside four walls, perhaps now is the time to allow legendary naturalist icon Sir David Attenborough, to take you on a journey. Attenborough’s latest series, Breaking Boundaries, is a climate call to action, a timely warning about the catastrophic damage we’re doing to our homeworld. In his peerless style, Attenborough offers a sobering snapshot of how our planet is faring before tabling solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support systems.
Lupin, Part 2
The master thief is back to steal your time this June, with the second instalment of Lupin dropping onto Netflix. Lupin was a surprise hit for the streaming giant, and now the French show returns with the second half of the show’s 10 episode run. Omar Sy returns as the charming Lupin, and part two promises a fitting ending to Lupins long-running battle with Pellegrini.
Down to Earth with Zac Efron, Season 1
Unless you’ve been living in some kind of news-free vortex, you’ll be well aware that Zac Efron has been spending time in Australia over the past twelve months. Aside from being incredibly shredded and dating a series of dreamy waitresses from Byron Bay, the Hollywood star has also been busy filming the second series of his travel show, Down to Earth with Zac Efron. While we won’t see the Australian-themed series until late next year, the first season is due to hit Netflix this June. Across ten episodes, Zac explores some of the world’s most jaw-dropping locations, including Iceland, France, and the Amazon rainforest. Excellent viewing but particularly cruel when borders are closed.
Bosch, Season 7
Amazon Prime Australia
After seven incredible seasons, the time has finally come to farewell everyone’s favourite (yet incredibly flawed) LA detective, Harry Bosch. As Amazon Prime’s longest-running original series, Bosch holds a special place in the TV landscape, and fingers crossed, the seventh season delivers a final slate worthy of the great man. According to the official synopsis, the last season of Bosch will have Harry Bosch (Welliver) and Jerry Edgar (Jamie Hector) pursuing two separate but perilous murder investigations.
Eden, Season 1
From the minds that delivered genre-defining series Skins, Eden promises to thrust viewers deep into the underbelly of an addictive new drama. Inspired by the iconic beauty of Byron Bay, Eden is your classic small town, big secrets drama. Across eight episodes, Eden explores the disappearance of a young woman, which triggers a devastating chain of events that lays bare the dark, hidden heart of paradise.
Loki, Season 1
How much Marvel is too much Marvel to stream in June? The juggernaut studio delivers yet another spin-off from the mammoth Avengers franchise. The Loki series follows the adventures of Thor’s villainous older brother, played by Tom Hiddleson. Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki from the films, while Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Wunmi Mosaku will also star in the six-episode series. Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Loki is a time-travelling crime thriller designed for MCU fans.
