The Best TV Shows on Netflix to Watch Right Now (June 2022)

What TV shows should you watch on Netflix tonight? We’ve put together a list of the best TV shows streaming on Netflix right now


THE LINCOLN LAWYER

Why you should watch: The TV series based on the movie based on the Michael Connelly novel The Brass Verdict, follows Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln. Sidelined after an accident for almost a year, Haller is back in the courtroom, recovering from a drug habit. When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his practice, including the defence of Trevor Elliott, a tech billionaire accused of murdering his wife and her lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent’s killer may be coming for him next. This a fast-paced crime drama, that holds the attention right to the end.

Director: DAVID GROSSMAN, ALONSO ALVAREZ, BILL D’ELIA, ERIN FEELEY, LIZ FRIEDLANDER
Cast: MANUEL GARCIA-RULFO, NEVE CAMPBELL, ANGUS SAMPSON, JAZZ RAYCOLE, BECKI NEWTON, KRISTA WARNER, CHRISTOPHER GORHAM

42 DAYS OF DARKNESS

Why you should watch: This crime drama is partially based on the true story of the disappearance in 2010 of Viviana Haeger, in a town in Chile. In the series we follow a woman’s frantic search to find her missing sister amid a media storm and the police investigation. The story did become a bit frustrating at times due to the seemingly inaction by the police involved in the investigation. The family are eventually given some answers through the dogged determination of lawyer, Pizarro. A solid drama well worth a look. The filming locations of Pucon and Puerto Montt adds to the enigma of the drama unfolding.

Director: GASPAR ANTILLO, CLAUDIA HUAIQUIMILLA
Cast: ALINE KUPPENHEIM, CLAUDIA DI GIROLAMA, JULIA LUBBERT, PABLO MACAYA, DANIEL ALCAINO, GLORIA MUNCHMEYER, AMPARO NOGUERA

HOLD TIGHT

Why you should watch: Yet another series based on a novel by the prolific crime author Harlan Coben, this time set in Poland. The setting is an upscale housing estate where the community leads a quiet life with close relationships. Everything changes when 18-year-old Adam disappears without a trace. The danger escalates quickly, and the worried parents do everything they can to protect their children who, on the verge of adulthood, have decided to take matters into their own hands. There are a few plot factors going on here, but it is well worth adding to your Netflix list.

Director: MICHAL GAZDA, BARTOSZ KONOPKA
Cast: MAGDALENA BOCZARSKA, KRZYSZTOF OLEKSYN, LESZEK LICHOTA, GRZEGORZ DAMIECKI, AGATA LABNO, AGNIESZKA GROCHOWSKA

CLARK

Why you should watch: What a talented bunch are the Skarsgard family. Here we have the talented Bill, who most will know as Pennywise from It, starring as the charasmatic Clark Olofsson. Based on the truth and lies of Olofsson’s autobiography, this attention-grabbing series features Clark’s early years until present day. The notorious gangster started his criminal career in the 1960s and became one of the most controversial personalities in contemporary Swedish history. Convicted of several counts of drug trafficking, attempted murder, assault, theft and dozens of bank robberies, he has spent more than half his life behind bars and has left behind a trail of trauma, heartbreak, disappointment and general devastation. In the 1970s Clark gave rise to the idea of “The Stockholm Syndrome” during a failed bank robbery in Stockholm and has ever since kept his position as celebrity criminal fooling all of Sweden to fall in love with him. Loved this one.

Director: JONAS AKERLUND
Cast: BILL SKARSGARD, VILHELM BLOMGREN, HANNA BJORN, ISABELLE GRILL, MALIN LEVANON, SANDRA ILAR, AGNES LINDSTROM

NEW HEIGHTS

Why you should watch: This family drama from Switzerland is a bit different from the usual fare on offer, but it is an excellent drama with likeable characters which explores the layers of conflict within a family, especially where money is involved. Up-and-coming consultant Mick escaped from the narrowness of his village as a young man. In the city, he conceals his origins as a farmer’s son, and in the village, no one knows he is gay. While Mick is working on the financial recovery of a dairy company, his father unexpectedly dies, leaving behind nothing but debts. Mick is the only one who can save the family farm, even though no one thinks the city boy has the skill to do so.

Director: SABINE BOSS, PIERRE MONNARD
Cast: JULIAN KOECHLIN, RACHEL BRAUNSCHWEIG, SOPHIE HUTTER, JEROME HUMM, ANOUK PETRI, BENITO BAUSE

MY NEXT GUEST NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION WITH DAVID LETTERMAN

Why you should watch: Moving right away from the drama genre, this TV series with the wonderful David Letterman is thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable as he interviews a range of people, he finds fascinating, which include George Clooney, Barack Obama, Malala Yousafzai, Ryan Reynolds and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Not only do we get to know the interviewees a lot better during the chat there is also a lot to learn about Letterman himself as he also faces a number of probing questions about himself and his life. An excellent way to spend a few hours.

Director: MICHAEL BONFIGLIO, MARK RITCHIE, HELEN M. CHO, MICHAEL STEED
Cast: DAVID LETTERMAN, KIM KARDASHIAN, TINA FEY, HOWARD STERN, ELLEN DEGENERES, LEWIS HAMILTON, MELINDA GATES

HEARTSTOPPER

Why you should watch: Based on the novel by Alice Oseman, who also scripted the series, this is a delightful and thoughtful young adult drama. The story follows two British teens, Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring, at an all-boys grammar school. Charlie, a high-strung, openly gay overthinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, one day are made to sit together in class. Their friendship quickly becomes something more for openly gay Charlie, but he initially does not believe he has a chance with Nick. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realised. Heartstopper is about love, friendship and loyalty. It is also about tolerance and acceptance of those who choose a different path.

Director: EUROS LYN
Cast: ELIZABETH OLSEN, SARAH PAULSON, HUGH DANCY, JOHN HAWKES, JULIA GARNER, MARIA DIZZIA, CHRISTOPHER ABBOTT

RUSSIAN DOLL

Why you should watch: The talented Natasha Lyonne co-directs, writes and stars in this entertaining comedy-drama series. On Nadia’s (Lyonne) 36th birthday she is struck by a car and killed while leaving her party. In an instant she is alive again and transported back to her birthday party earlier that night. Moments later she dies again and finds herself, once again, back at her party, Nadia begins to question her sanity as she strives to unravel the mystery of her situation. This one will hold your attention right to the final scene.

Director: NATASHA LYONNE, LESLYE HEADLAND, ALEXANDER BUONO, JAMIE BABBIT
Cast: NATASHA LYONNE, CHARLIE BARNETT, GRETA LEE, ANNIE MURPHY, REBECCA HENDERSON, ELIZABETH ASHLEY, CHLOE SEVIGNY

GODLESS

Why you should watch: Great to see the Western genre getting another go. Although not based on fact, the creator Scott Frank as inspired by the real history of mining towns in the Southwest. Michelle Dockery steps far, far away from Downton Abbey here. Jeff Daniels is not a very nice man as he takes on the role of the villain in the piece, notorious criminal Frank Griffin who, with his gang of outlaws, is on a mission to get revenge on Roy Goode, a former protege who betrayed the brotherhood. On the run, Roy seeks refuge in isolated mining town La Belle, where he lives with Alice Fletcher, a hardened widow and outcast. When word reaches La Belle, which is governed mainly by women, that Griffin is headed there, the residents of the town band together to defend against his murderous gang. There’s an excellent ensemble cast attached to this one.

Director: SCOTT FRANK
Cast: MICHELLE DOCKERY, JACK O’CONNELL, JEFF DANIELS, MERRITT WEVER, SCOOT MCNAIRY, THOMAS BRODIE-SANGSTER

STRANGER THINGS

Why you should watch: Stranger Things Season 4 is here! But you can go back and binge all seasons to refresh your memory. It all started in a small town where everyone knows everyone, and a peculiar incident starts a chain of events that leads to a child’s disappearance, which begins to tear at the fabric of an otherwise-peaceful community. Dark government agencies and seemingly malevolent supernatural forces converge on the town, while a few of the locals begin to understand that more is going on than meets the eye. In the new season the kids are trying to move on with their lives, but a threat is brewing both on Earth and the Upside Down.

Director: MATT DUFFER, ROSS DUFFER, SHAWN LEVY, NIMROD ANTAL
Cast: CHARLIE HEATON, WINONA RYDER, DAVID HARBOUR, NOAH SCHNAPP, FINN WOLFHARD, CALEB MCLAUGHLIN, MILLY BOBBY BROWN, JOE KEERY, NATALIA DYER, PAUL REISER

59 thoughts on “The Best TV Shows on Netflix to Watch Right Now (June 2022)”

  1. I thought All the characters in “Startup” were err unique. Great storyline that, yes, I “binge-watched”. Check it out!

    Sheesh

  2. Why is no ratings on these movies???? I do like R. rated !!! Shows.

  3. Halston was excellent. My husband actually really enjoyed it too, binge watched all episodes in one evening.

  4. Most, if not all of these shows are English speaking. Hooray! I’m tired of having to be a linguist to watch tv.

  5. Have watched, or will watch only 4 out of these 10….might be time to cancel.

  6. Terrible movies with the exception of one. And that is why I cancelled.

  7. What happened to virgin river is it coming back. Did not care for start up I only watched first 20 minutes to graphic for my taste. Loved heartland and halston also

  8. Loving Heartland. Great escape from reality.

  9. You advertised that it was Netflix stuff but it’s really a commercial for Utube.

    Just false and misleading rubbish.

  10. Hey Royce – Just click on the ‘WATCH NOW’ button for full streaming options. The trailers from Youtube are there for a quick preview – Cheers, The OTT Team.

  11. Erm, Breaking Bad isn’t available on the Netflix AU, (it’s on Stan along with prequel Better Call Saul) although they do have El Camno, a spinoff to BB on Netflix globally.

    More effort required. D-

  12. Netflix is far better in other country’s they get shows far sooner than in the United States and more choices in many country’s like Australia loved there app when we in country.

  13. Loved Virgin River and Heartland they are so good no cussing just nice talk. Just wish had more Christian movies.

  14. Love Virgin River. Want to move!!!!

  15. I’m a newbie, just to tell you I love OTT especially the Netflix reviews, I am definitely on the same pages as your “reviewer”
    And Virgin River here in Oz is back July 9!!!

  16. Howdy Colleen! Glad to know you love the guide – Cheers, The OTT Team.

  17. I attempted “Ghosts of War”, a poorly written unappealing ghost story set during World War II, and “Godless”, starring Sam Waterston. What could be wrong with that, just the plot, premise, dialogue, characters, post-feminist politically correct b.s., that is all. When I finish Longmire, I am done with Netflix.

  18. So many of the series shows are so dark (as in not good lighting). It does nothing for the shows. Sometimes I cannot even see what is going on. Actually it is not just Netflix, some of the ? broadband ? Shows are the same. BTW we devoured Dexter and Ozark and 13 Reasons Why

  19. Oops my mistake calling non cable tv “broadband”

  20. netfl definitely needs to add many motr MOVIES…..Not series!!!!! Need more Modern SCI FI and action newer movies too!!!!! I may cancel if changes arent made SOON!

  21. These aren’t new they’ve been around for ages

  22. Startup will hook you…binge watched all 3 seasons in a week!

  23. Just live Heartland, Virgin River and When Calls the Heart.
    Line of Duty is fantastic !

  24. Too much murder, mayhem, and whiteness in these flicks! What had happened to love, happiness, and fun. This is 2021 for Pete’s sake! There are lots of great Netflix movies that present diversity such as Fatherhood,
    Ma Rainey, Miles Davis.

  25. Absolutely LOVE Virgin River!! So much excitement and oh, such beauty! Can’t wait for Series 3.

  26. .. for a long time Netflix only has B/C/D grade movies, they don’t want to spend money on paying to show great movies. some time ago, i checked over 200 of the best movies – Netflix had about 6!!
    now they want to push you to only watch what they make themselves (which IS often good), but otherwise crap movies n series.

    and if you are not in US, you get half of what they get – and pay twice as much.

    one good thing (for me) is that usually/often have Vietnamese subtitles

    i have tried Prime but most of their moves are pay for view. Vudu has an enormous collection of movies but they are all pay for view – would be hugely expensive. i have (can?) not tried Hulu.

    and because i am not n AU now, i have not tried STAN.

  27. Getting a little tired of getting hooked on a series just to find that it’s been cancelled after one season.

  28. Even though we think a series gets cancelled sooner than we think it should, it’s still enjoyable to watch. Can’t remember which ones I am thinking about, but remember saying that to myself.

  29. Love Virgin River, watched all episodes.
    Hope there is more to come.
    Heartland ♥️ Miss it

    Clean TV, no unnecessary cussing or vulgarity. It makes watching shows enjoyable again. Thank you!

  30. I just love Virgin River Can wait for the next season The show is a good show it really keeps you on your toes trying figure out what will happen next I just can’t wait for to find out what happen next

  31. Wonderful, and need more like these:
    Heartland !
    Virgin River !

  32. Virgin River was last year people.
    Keep up here. Doesn’t say much about Netflix huh?

  33. Can’t wait for the new season of After Life. Brilliant series!!!

  34. I also would like more movies rather than series

  35. Well there was only a couple I found interesting and that is Greenleaf and Heartland. The other movies are just too much the same as each other.
    I sure hope you will add more Christian movies please.

  36. No Christian or religious movies……….philosophy, political , mystery are good.

  37. If your going to attempt filming provide enough lighting that I don’t have to check the settings to make sure nothing’s wrong with my television. Then spend the rest of the movie taking my glasses off and putting them back on to try to see if they can help me see the dark scenes better, if you can’t pay for the lights maybe you shouldn’t be filming.

  38. I loved virgin River please make more Heartland I have watched them all and are waiting for more series please make more and When Calls The Heart was also the bomb of series please make more These three are the best out of all of them
    Both myself and my partner have watched all of the movies on Netflix and are waiting for more to come Please no more different country movies where you cannot understand what they say

  39. I am loving Virgin River. Just finished watching Van Helsing and enjoyed it immensely. I am watching Chicago Fire, which I love but I would like to know when the seasons after number 4 will be shown.

  40. I was intrigued with Click Bait. A great watch. Surprising ending.

  41. It would be very helpful if you would say if the show is in English. I don’t have time to click on every trailer.

  42. Too many dark movies. What’s needed are mysteries that require some intellectual stimulation like those of Agatha Christe, Sherlock Homes and Ellery Queen. Serial killers, etc. don’t cut it.

    Would also like to see more historical and adventure films.

    Serious comedies are lacking.

  43. Agree with many of the comments here…. My husband and I are turned off by so many horrible murders (victims mostly women), disgusting language, totally uncommitted sex which ads nothing to the underlying story. We like thoughtful movies or series, especially those based on true stories. Something that “appeals to our better angels.”

  44. Virgin river and Heartland ran I miss them and when do more come out Watch to season 14 and stop, when are more episodes coming?

  45. Have watched most of squid game , fantastic , haven’t seen any others

  46. Why does every email I get from you list only zombie, sci if and crime dramas? I am not interested in any of those genres but it’s all I get from you!

  47. I wonder if someone with Netflix’s is really reading these comments. Everyone has said my thoughts about wanting good, old fashioned, decent movies without all the cussing and violence. All the foreign movies are difficult to watch and I will probably go to website. Sorry, thanks for trying to be entertaining.

  48. Would you please get some decent movies… I mean A grade movies. So many low grade movies on Netflix. Some of the old 60s 70s 80s good movies not second rate stuff. So many bad movie choices. Not so many series PLEASE… Just better quality movies. I have trouble with the sound of these excrutiatingly bad movies.
    “Pieces of her” was not great either… just passable. The Sinner was OK.

    But so few good quality films, Not enough good documentaries. Not enough fast pace action films. There are also NO NEW MOVIES on Netflix…. why? they’re on other streaming services.

  49. Stop showing all the movies that were made at night………

  50. I love Netflix, so many international movies and series instead of dreadful Hollywood trash.

  51. There are some foreign movies I would watch if they were done in English, you have had some good shows that have been canceled, I agree with some here better lighting is needed

  52. My problem is with foreign languages. I only speak and listen English. I would appreciate if you could let me know in the beginning so I don’t have to thru the rigmarole to get to the 1st word spoken and find out it is non-English speaking or dubbed.

    And more series’ please.

    Thanking you
    Jenny Millward

  53. Love Virgin River, need more of those! The new season of Tin Star is a little rough, won’t finish it.

  54. Well first of all if I can understand the language you cant hardly see whats going on because it is always dark. So to be honest, most of the recommendations are not in English and I will not look at any show that has sub-titles and anyway you cant see the characters because its always in the dark. Been a client of Netflix for years and years and the choices they make has been terrible. Have a good day
