New Family-Friendly Shows & Movies Coming To Netflix This Month


At this point, new streaming content is basically gold and fortunately, it's time for Netflix to drop a whole slew of new shows and movies. And while some of them come with ratings that may give parents pause, there are quite a few new June 2020 Netflix shows and movies that the whole family can enjoy.

Practicing social distancing at home is a lot easier when you have something good to watch, and the lineup coming to Netflix in June does not disappoint. From original content to classic movies and everything in between, the only thing you'll have to complain about is how you'll choose what to watch first.

There is much to be excited for, but Netflix subscribers with kids will likely be thrilled to hear that a brand new Pokémon series is coming to Netflix. That’s right, Pokémon Journeys is a brand new set of stories that will follow trainer Ash Ketchum as he takes his Pokémon catching adventures outside of the Alola region and embarks on adventures around the world.

But new Pokémon content is only the beginning of what families have to be excited about on Netflix this month. So let's take a look at what's coming to Netflix this month.
