By Vivian El-Salawy on May 7, 2017

Summer is the season to binge all of the Netflix shows that you might not have had time to watch throughout this past spring semester. While many college students start watching 10-season shows the week of finals, there are a few Netflix originals that will be coming soon to you this June. Binge away:

Orange is the New Black (Season 5)
Date of Release: June 9th

Everyone has heard of this one – without a doubt one of the most successful Netflix Original television series that has come out thus far. This June, they will be returning with their fifth season.

According to the Sunday Express, season five takes place in real-time over the course of just three days, which is a shift from previous seasons. The fact that this season is in real-time does add a sense of intensity to the season. Netflix has released a new trailer recently.

There has been some recent drama involving the release of this most recent season. The Sunday Express reports that a hacking group by the name of “The Dark Overload” posted unfinished episodes from the season onto the internet, however these have been taken down.

Rumors around the internet claim that the season will be dropped earlier than the official release date (as it has in the past as well), so stay tuned.

You Get Me (film)
Date of Release: June 16th

Soon-to-be released independent film You Get Me features an all-star cast, including Bella Thorne, Halston Sage, Taylor Smith, Anna Akan, Nash Grier and Jennifer Esposito.

According to, the Netflix original movie follows Tyler (Smith), a high school student who is head over heels in love with his girlfriend Ali (Sage). When a fight ensues, he ends up with a “sexy out-of-towner” Grace (Thorne). Ali then finds out about Grace, and thus the drama begins. This will make a great Friday night flick, so consider adding it to your “to-watch” list.

The Ranch (Season 2)
Date of Release: June 17th

The first season of The Ranch was released last April. The series is a comedy set in a fictional ranch with Ashton Kutcher’s character (yes, Ashton Kutcher) returning home from a semi-pro football career to help his family on their Colorado ranch. It is currently one of the most popular comedy series on Netflix. This second season will be released with twenty episodes – a bit lengthy for a television series.

The show is to be enjoyed for what it is and not what it is expected to be. While the laugh track has received much criticism, sit back and enjoy the show: it’s cool, slow and perfect for a summer binge.

GLOW (Season 1)
Date of Release: June 23rd

GLOW is an upcoming American comedy-drama teleivision series creted by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch. With the main producer of Orange is the New Black working on the show, this is already drawing quite the audience.

The series is set in the 1980’s and follows a female professional wrestling circuit, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (or GLOW). It revolves around a series of fictional characters and although the plot is very different from Orange is the New Black, there are reported to be striking similarities between themes of the two shows.

The first season, containing ten total episodes, will debut towards the end of June. The strong cast includes: Alison Brie (Ruth), Betty Gilpin (Debbie), Marc Maron (Sam), Britney Young (Carmen), Sydelle Noel (Cherry), and more. Unwind and take a glance into the professional and personal lives of these women this summer!

These Netflix original films and television series being released in June are only a portion of the many shows and movies coming to you soon. Keep your eyes peeled, add new watches to your list, and make sure you get through all of them before the next semester kicks in!
