Pick a returning show or find a new obsession

The transition from May to June usually signals the end of Alphonso mango season and the arrival of the first cooling monsoon showers. So far, in this period, we’ve had heatwaves, a Bieber baby announcement and influencer drama (we’re hooked). Having had our fill of delicious mangoes and debilitating heat, we’re ready to leave summer behind with a fresh batch of OTT releases.

June is shaping up to be a month of comebacks, with a plethora of beloved shows returning for a new season. The lineup spans a wide range of genres, from documentaries about historical empires (and their downfall) to heartwarming dramas and side-splitting comedies. I mean, what would you do if your mom was Nicole Kidman and she started dating Zac Efron, like in A Family Affair? This month’s releases promise something for everyone.

And we’ve done the legwork for you, reaching far and wide for an exhaustive pick of June’s most promising OTT releases that are worthy of a spot on your watchlist.
