These new additions will curb your winter blues.

Another month has sped by and winter is at our doorstep. With pubs and clubs set to remain closed for a while longer and the impending temperature drop bound to have you leaning towards staying indoors, Netflix has a juicy drop lined up for June. There’s comedy, drama and some real-life action to keep you entertained, so leave your trackpants on and settle in for some quality binge-watching.

Eric Andre: Legalize Everything

For his first ever Netflix original stand-up special, Eric Andre takes aim at the war on drugs, the war on sex and the war on fart jokes. Known for his insane sense of humour which lacks any sort of boundaries, you can bet his comedy special is going to be a wild ride. Exactly what we’re in for with Eric Andre: Legalize Everything is yet to be seen, but that’s the fun of it. Get ready to laugh yourself stupid.

Queer Eye – Season Five

The Fab Five are back, back, back again for season five and at this point, we don’t have to tell you to have tissues on hand (I, for one, cried just watching the trailer). Antoni Porowski, Bobby Berk, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown and Tan France will travel to Philadelphia to work their magic on ten new heroes as they continue their mission to spread self-love. Prepare for a big ol’ case of the warm and fuzzies.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of the Fire Saga

A musical comedy starring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of the Fire Saga follows small-town aspiring pop stars Lars Erickssong (Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (McAdams) whose wildest dreams come true when they are given the chance to represent Iceland at the world’s biggest song competition. You can bet there’ll be some stellar one-liners in this goofy, heartwarming flick.

Lennox Hill

There is something incredibly captivating about medicine and those who practice it and while the like of Grey’s Anatomy and House make for entertaining television, they don’t exactly provide a realistic snapshot of what it’s like to be a doctor. Following four doctors at New York’s Lennox Hill Hospital, Lennox Hill is an all-access pass to the frontlines of health care. Amidst the current pandemic, we’ve come to respect health care workers more than ever, and this glimpse into what they face daily is certain to amplify that.

The Politician – Season Two

Created by Ryan Murphy and starring the likes of Ben Platt, Lucy Boynton, Jessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow, season one of The Politician was one of Netflix’s most popular series in 2019. This June, Payton Hobart and co. will return for another dose of scandal, backstabbing and delicious drama. While Platt has revealed this season won’t contain as many musical moments as its predecessor, the stakes are set to be even higher now that high school rules no longer apply.
