New shows and movies to watch on Netflix Canada this weekend

Jun 26 2020, 8:17 am

Having just officially kicked off summer and with July quickly approaching, you might see your Netflix watching hours start to diminish.

Not to mention, we’ve put in our streaming time over the past three months.

Deconfinement means life is slowly starting to shape again and this weekend might be the last good time to put in some serious binge-watching time before you head back to the non-living room world of beaches, parks, malls, restaurants, cafes, and events.

Here are some newly-added Netflix Canada shows and flicks to consider diving into as the days of June start to trickle away.
