Two major genre franchises are back on streaming this month, plus plenty of deep cuts and some under-the-radar movies to round out June 2019.
The big stories are the third and final season of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, and the third season of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, both of which return this month. Both look to be major, binge-friendly releases — though fans better savor that last bit of Jessica Jones, since Netflix is now out of the Marvel business. Digging a bit deeper, Hulu is adding the fourth and final season of SYFY’s 12 Monkeys, one of the best sci-fi shows you probably haven’t seen (so go check it out).
Looking to movies, Netflix original I Am Mother brings some creepy robot mama vibes to the table, while Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is also coming to streaming. Hulu is also adding the disaster pic Poseidon, while Amazon Prime is loaded with deep cuts such as Sleepy Hollow and Spaceballs.
Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you’ll be watching.
Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 3: The final gasp of Netfix’s Defenders universe is finally here. We don’t know much about the story, but it’ll certainly feature a lot of drinking and snark from everyone’s favorite super-powered detective. Here’s hoping it makes for a fitting finale.
I Am Mother: This Netflix original follows a young girl being raised by a robot (Rose Byrne) named “Mother.” It looks to be a sci-fi conspiracy tale, where not everything is what it seems. Could make for a good excuse to hide in the A/C while the temperature keeps creeping up over the next month.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse: Now you can watch Miles’ first big screen adventure again, and again, and again. The acclaimed animated Spider-Man tale is coming to Netflix, in case you missed it the first time around or just want to watch it for the hundredth time. Fair warning: it only gets better with repeated viewings.

The Handmaid’s Tale (Season 3): The acclaimed, near-future political allegory is back in action for a brand new season. It’s looking to make a slow shift into hope this year, though we’d think things are still pretty bleak around Gilead, regardless.
12 Monkeys (Season 4): The final season of one of the best shows you probably didn’t see is hitting Hulu. SYFY’s 12 Monkeys is an ambitious time travel tale that deftly blends together branching stories and a mind-bending conspiracy. It’s one of the best time travel stories ever put to film. If you missed it the first time around, it’s the perfect time to jump in. We guarantee you won’t regret it.
Poseidon: This 2006 remake of The Poseidon Adventure kinda came and went, but as far as big ol’ disaster movies go, it’s still a fun one. It also has about the most 2006 cast ever, with Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss and a young Emmy Rossum.

Minority Report: It’s a modern sci-fi classic for a reason. This Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise joint remains one of the most realized and ambitious takes on a Philip K. Dick tale to date. Hard to believe it’s been more than 15 years since this one hit the big screen.
Spaceballs: While we patiently wait for the next Star Wars film in the mainline Skywalker saga, Amazon Prime is looking to take us back to a much simpler time — a time when the OG trilogy reigned supreme and goofball parodies like this one could riff on anything from Alien to Darth Vader from scene-to-scene.
Sleepy Hollow: One of Tim Burton’s slightly less-revered films is hitting Amazon Prime, and though it’s probably a better fit for Halloween, it’s never too early for some summer scares. The star-studded take on the classic tale stars Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci and Christopher Walken.
