New on Netflix in June: Say hello to Lupin, Sweet Tooth, and Happy Endings, and goodbye to Hannibal, Twin Peaks, and The Twilight Zone

There’s a whiff of summer blockbuster pyrotechnics to the sizzle reel rounding up June’s big premieres on Netflix—at least as much as can be sustained across 10 minutes of sneak peeks. But even with movie theaters shaking off the pandemic cobwebs, the streaming service continues to make its move to supplant the megaplex, with a June lineup that includes the Kevin Hart-headlined Fatherhood (which was initially planned for a theatrical run last April), the insomnia-as-apocalypse thriller Awake, the Revolutionary War-by-way-of-Archer animated satire America: The Motion Picture, and a two-part Sailor Moon movie. On the TV front, Lupin’s French-language caper continues, newly Discovery-co-owned DC Comics title Sweet Tooth brings its human/animal hybrid fantasia to live-action life, Élite prepares for a new school year, Kim’s Convenience prepares to close up shop, and Happy Endings joins the library.

Yet, just as Netflix subscribers begin their very own Years of Penny, they must prepare to let go of Hannibal, all three Back To The Future movies, Bonnie And Clyde, the first two seasons of Twin Peaks, and the original run of The Twilight Zone. You can really feel the repercussions of the streaming wars in the last two of those departures, Viacom properties that have been widely available across multiple platforms for years, but now have an owned-and-operated home at Paramount+. Be forewarned, Netflix subscriber: You have time enough at last to watch Burgess Meredith make the fateful wish that he just had more time to read in “Time Enough At Last”—but only until the end of June.
