Happy Wednesday and welcome to your first daily recap for what’s new on Netflix! It’s been a very quiet start to the week in terms of new additions. Most of the focus is rightly on Netflix’s Geeked Week announcements but there’s finally enough new content to give you a heads up on what’s now streaming. Here are the new releases on Netflix and top 10s in the US for June 8th, 2022.
On the removals front, there are lots of movies and shows leaving within the next 7 days. If we had to recommend a few, we’d recommend checking out the K-drama series Man to Man an action thriller about a secret agent having to look after a celebrity. On the movie side, we’ll soon see the removal of Life of Crime (2013) starring Jennifer Aniston.
