2022 is reaching the halfway point. Shocking, we know. But that toll of the bell also means it’s time to discuss Netflix’s additions in the month of June. For us, nothing is more intriguing than the return of The Umbrella Academy for its third season. The Hargreeves return from 1963 to find they’ve been replaced by The Sparrow Academy, a different group of superpower-powered people adopted by Sir Reginald (Colm Feore) thanks to the divergences they created in the past. And since this is The Umbrella Academy, a world-ending disasters is just five days away. Can they convince the Sparrows to help them stop it and restore the timeline? Find out on June 22nd when the new season debuts.

Of course, that’s just our pick for the month. Take a look at everything coming to and leaving the platform next month to find your next must-watch film or show.
