There are some real treats on the way from Netflix this June, and we're not just talking about the hotly-awaited third season of Orange is the New Black (although that's super exciting too).

You'll be pencilling TV chill-time into your diaries despite all the fun activities summer has to offer when you check out the list of new shows and films joining the streaming service this month.

Take a look at our pick of some of the best:

Hinterland (Season 1) - 16/06

Time for a sprinkling of Welsh noir. This crime thriller follows troubled DCI Tom Mathias as he sets out on the path to redemption and first aired on BBC4 last month.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - 12/6

The follow-up to the first Pirates blockbuster falls far short but still makes for fun watching. Johnny Depp is on top form as Captain Jack Sparrow - no wonder they're still dragging him back for more almost ten years later.

Pinocchio - 26/6

There's a live action remake of this Disney classic in the pipeline but you need to see the Oscar-winning original first. A puppet whose nose grows when he lies must prove that he has what it takes to be a human boy with the help of a cricket acting as his conscience.
