Movies And Shows Coming To Netflix UK In June 2023

Geralt of Rivia returns to Netflix this month for the first volume of the third series of The Witcher and so too does Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is back on the streaming service for a new documentary about his life, only a few weeks after he made his TV-show debut in FUBAR.

Also streaming this month is the musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda as well as Extraction 2 which once again sees Chris Hemsworth in the role of Tyler Rake, a name perhaps best suited to a gardening show, who once again puts his life on the line during another dangerous mission.

Check out this month’s highlights below and then keep scrolling to take a look at some of the other titles landing on Netflix UK this June.

Please note: This list is correct at the time of writing but titles may be added (or removed) over the coming weeks.

When the extraction goes awry and the gangster dies in the heat of battle, the villain’s brother tracks down Rake to get his revenge.

The first movie was one of Netflix’s biggest hits so here’s hoping this second movie, in what could be a very profitable franchise for the streaming service, is just as good as the entertaining original.
