Luke Cage Season 2

The Bullet-proof crime fighting Marvel superhero is back this June with a somewhat ‘Luke’warm season 2. Yes, we are currently in the process of reviewing the show and sadly, it’s not as power packed as we expected. Still, a binger’s gotta do what a binger does best, and if you are one who has been following all the Netflix Marvel shows, this one is a worth watching just for the sake of continuity.

Sense8 Final Episode

Yeah, we kind of trailed off Sense8 somewhere in the middle of season 2, but the sci-fi drama has one last master stroke left to deliver before the show ceases to exist. Netflix has axed Sense8 and will not be renewing it for a third season, but not before the ‘cluster’ gets some closure in the season finale this June. As per the description of the season finale, “personal lives are pushed aside as the cluster, their sidekicks and some unexpected allies band together for a rescue mission and BPO take-down in order to protect the future of all Sensates.”

Fauda Season 2

The Israeli drama is already back for a second helping and it’s getting the same rave responses it did the first time around. Learning that the Hamas militant he thought he killed is still at large, veteran Israeli operative Doron comes out of retirement to hunt down his foe. The new season just started so June is a good time binge watch both the seasons to get all caught up and make up for the lack of new streaming content this month.
