Happy Friday and welcome to your daily recap of what’s new on Netflix for June 3rd, 2022. There are 8 new additions today but fair warning, most are international releases and quality varies dramatically. Here’s what’s new and what’s trending as we head into the weekend.
While there may not be anything to look forward to this weekend, there are plenty of new releases scheduled throughout the remainder of June.
On the removals side, The Night Clerk (2020) starring Ana De Armas should be on your watch list if it isn’t already. That leaves Netflix on Monday.

This movie won’t be taking home any awards but following Netflix’s trend of creating serviceable action movies comes a new one here headed up by Elsa Pataky perhaps best known for her role in the Fast and Furious franchise.
Here’s what you can expect:
“At a remote military base tasked with intercepting nuclear missiles, attackers try to breach the command center. One brave officer stands in their way.”

Floor is Lava is like Total Wipeout but instead of water you’re being dunked into its lava. The Netflix game show which first premiered over the pandemic is back now with what Netflix promises are bigger courses for contestants to tackle and bigger dunks.
