Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy and the mind-bending thriller Spiderhead starring Chris Hemsworth lead Netflix’s June 2022 offerings.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 once again finds Vanya (Elliot Page), Number 5 (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Luther (Tom Hopper), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), and Diego (David Castañeda) hustling to save the world from another ominous threat. After the events of season 2, and the changes the gang made to the timeline, the siblings return to find the place their home has undergone an unexpected transformation. Say hello to “The Sparrow Academy.” Can the Umbrellas and Sparrows learn to get along, at least until they all figure out how to save the world yet again? That is the question.

If big-budget sci-fi features are your jam, check out the Chris Hemsworth-starrer Spiderhead, about a boundary-pushing scientist who uses mind-altering drugs at a secret high-security facility to rehabilitate its prisoners. Based on the 2010 New Yorker short story written by George Saunders, the movie also stars Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett and was directed by Top Gun: Maverick‘s Joseph Kosinski.

After an extended wait, Cillian Murphy makes his triumphant return as Tommy Shelby in the sixth and final season of the BBC’s celebrated series, Peaky Blinders.  On the sports drama tip, Hustle finds Adam Sandler playing a down-on-his-luck talent scout who finds a second wind when he discovers a basketball prodigy (played by Utah Jazz forward Juancho Hernangómez) that could go pro and re-ignite his career along the way. In the documentary Halftime, Jennifer Lopez turns the cameras on her life, giving audiences an unfettered and honest look at her life as a pop singer, movie star, and mom, culminating in her grand halftime show performance with Shakira at the 2020 Super Bowl.

Premiere Date: June 17



Description: After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) —  now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?

Premiere Date: June 22
