Heartland season 16 (June 1)

The longest-running drama in Canadian TV history has its latest season hitting Netflix. The hit drama continues the stories of a family running a horse ranch, still adjusting to huge changes with the return of popular character Georgie. Expect a wedding, a proposal and some secrets revealed to progress a show that may not be a huge hit among U.S. viewers but shows its great success with fans.

Your Honor seasons 1-2 (June 1)

A surprise drop on May 31, this Showtime drama stars Emmy winner Bryan Cranston as respected New Orleans Judge Michael Desiato, who breaks all his own rules to help his son when the boy accidentally kills a guy in a car accident.

It's one thing for Desiato to stay ahead of the cops, but then he learns that the victim was the son of the head of the local mafia. The gripping drama was so successful that it got a second season with Rosie Perez joining, and it was a fine showcase for Cranston's amazing talents.

How I Met Your Mother (June 3)

Speaking of shows with long runs and disappointing finales, there’s the CBS comedy hit that did show some great humor in its nine season run. The setup is a dad (Bob Saget) telling his kids his long journey to meeting their mom which involves a lot of dating, some escapades and some wild slaps. It’s all sold by a cast of Josh Radnor, Jason Segal, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris as the scene-stealing womanizer Barney.

With bits from Robin Sparkles to surprisingly emotional moments, some wild weddings and fun comedy, the show did have a lot of charm. Even if that finale was seen as a letdown, the entire run is worth it for a comedy that's legen….wait for it…dary.

30 for 30: Lance (June 3)

Netflix has been adding some of ESPN’s award-winning documentaries to the streamer and this is a big one. This two-part special examines the rise and fall of Lance Armstrong, who overcame cancer to win a record seven Tour de France races. It made him a hero and even an icon pushing his various charities. 

Then came the revelation Armstrong was taking a variety of performance-enhancing drugs in his career, leading to him being stripped of all those accolades. Armstrong himself comments via older footage to paint a fascinating picture of how far a man went to win only to lose it all. 

Forged In Fire season 9 (June 14)

The popular reality show once more has a pack of blademasters competing to craft the perfect weapons in some great competitions. Season 9 tosses in challenges like a “blackout” competition, a “knife fight” (no, not what you think), crafting like in colonial times and a fun gladiator theme. The Supersized specials cap it off as another good season of this sharp reality show. 

Cold Case Files season 3 (June 15)

The reboot of the popular docudrama series once more has police working to tie up long-unsolved murder cases, some going back decades. This year involves the murders of a World War II hero, a female Army officer, the vanishing of a teenager, and more. Each episode packs in some amazing stories of the victims’ families, the cops and more to show that, no matter how long it takes, justice will be done.

Dexter (June 19)

As buzz builds on a new prequel series, enjoy the entire run of Showtime’s dark thriller. Michael C. Hall is Dexter Morgan, a Miami police lab tech who happens to be a serial killer. Not to worry, he only targets other killers and the cat and mouse game with his own cops and his dark side provides amazing drama. 

The high point is season 4, with Dexter matched against Jon Lithgow’s own dark murderer. It’s a shame the show is better known for its quite disappointing finale, but the full series should still be appreciated, as few shows were as thrilling as those early years of Dexter. 

Hoarders season 14 (June 28)

While shorter than other seasons at just 6 episodes, this reality show continues to fascinate, showing people whose lives are overwhelmed by their inability to throw anything away. This season has cases of a guy who thinks he’s somehow making a business out of this and a woman who has so much stuff in her home, she sleeps outside. As always, the episodes are not only about cleaning up their homes but freeing them of the mental issues that drive them to do this. It’s a good showcase for anyone who thinks they may be collecting too much junk.

NCIS seasons 16-17 (June 30)

It’s still a few seasons behind, but Netflix is finally adding a few more years of the CBS franchise to their library. Season 16 is the first full one for Kasie as the team handles the usual quirky cases like a reality TV star but also powerful storylines like Gibbs facing his dark past, an exciting two-part spy hunt, and ends with the revelation that Ziva is alive.

Season 17 has Ziva’s big return and adjusting to working with the team again while they handle cases of hostage crises, Torres attacked and more. There’s also Gibbs helping out a neighbor’s kid and a great guest turn by Christopher Lloyd so while this season was cut shorter, it’s still good that both installments have been added to Netflix at last. 

Alone season 10 (June 30)

The popular survival competition show has a new season hitting Netflix, with the action taking place in Reindeer Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada. The 10 competitors have to handle the brutal winter conditions, with several dropping out due to starvation or other health issues. It’s one of the harsher survival shows out there and this season may be the darkest yet to show that surviving the wilderness alone is not easy. 

The Smurfs season 2 (June 30)

For the kids, here’s a second season of the rebooted series based on the iconic blue-skinned characters. It’s the usual mix of antics as the Smurfs deal with the evil Gargamel, a Halloween episode and some music to boot. It’s not the most notable or exciting animated show on Netflix, but one that can be enjoyable for families.
