Best new shows and movies on Netflix in June 2021

Lupin part 2

Arrives on Netflix June 11
France's most wanted (and dashing) gentleman thief returns in Lupin part 2 for five episodes that follow up on the first half of the season. In his quest to avenge his late father, Assane Diop (Omar Sy) draws inspiration from the character Arsène Lupin, a master thief created by author Maurice Leblanc in his turn-of-the-century novels. Assane faces his greatest challenge yet when his son Raoul is kidnapped by Hubert Pellegrini, the powerful and wealthy businessman who was responsible for his father's downfall.

Too Hot to Handle season 2

Arrives on Netflix June 23
The steamy reality series is back, with 10 extremely attractive new singles who live together under strict rules: no kissing, no heavy petting and no self-gratification. Any violations dock the $100,000 prize. When Too Hot to Handle premiered last year, we were skeptical. But the cast turned out to be very watchable (and one of them, Chloe, migrated to The Circle), so it should be interesting to see a bunch of new hotties try to keep their libidos under control.

The Ice Road

Arrives on Netflix June 25
Liam Neeson is deploying his very particular set of skills once again, this time on the dangerous, slick, icy roads of Canada. If you've ever seen the reality show Ice Road Truckers, well, this is that but turned into a fictional movie and with even more thrills. Neeson plays an big rig driver who leads a rescue mission after a remote mine collapses. As he contends with a massive storm, he soon realizes there's an even bigger threat lurking out in the cold.

Our top selections are in bold, and we've got quotes from Netflix to help explain its latest originals that you might not know about.
