June is set to be a big month for Netflix arrivals, with a slew of new original films and shows hitting the servers along with some beloved old favourites.

Orange is the New Black returns for its fifth season on 9 June as the Litchfield inmates riot, while creator Jenji Kohan also has a new series, GLOW, launching which centres on an 80s female wrestling league and stars Alison Brie and Marc Maron.

Other TV highlights include El Chapo, a series chronicling the titular drug lord, Gypsy, a psychological thriller starring Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup, the final season of Orphan Black and the second series of Flaked.

28 June sees the arrival of Okja, one of Netflix's biggest originals to date, a film starring Tilda Swinton and Paul Dano that will be the streaming service's first Cannes Film Festival premiere.

If you're deep in the coils of the new Twin Peaks you might be interested to know that David Lynch's Blue Velvet hits Netflix in June, along with Marvel's Paul Rudd-starrer Ant-Man, my favourite Noah Baumbach movie While We're Young, Matt Damon sci-fi Elysium, gripping Steven Soderbergh drama Side Effects, Spielberg classic Schindler's List and Tom Hanks and Emma Watson's Facebook riff, The Circle.
