Netflix Canada: What's Good In June?

The sun may be out for summer, but Netflix Canada is getting a bit dark during this warm weather.

The long-awaited premiere of "Orange Is The New Black" Season 2 happens on June 6, when all 13 episodes will be available for streaming. We've never been so excited to head back into a prison. If you want something a little less comedic and downright horrifying, then TV show "Hannibal" might be up your alley -- Season 1 of the horror show is now available as well.

As for movies, there's plenty of Canadiana to keep you occupied leading up to Canada Day: first up, "The Wolverine," starring Hugh Jackman -- yes, Wolverine is a Canadian, look it up! -- and two brand spanking new "Trailer Park Boys" movies, "Live In F**kin' Dublin" and "Say Goodnight To The Bad Guys." If you missed James Gandolfini's last movie, "Enough Said," that too is available this month.

HuffPost Canada and Netflix Canada have teamed up to provide you with our best suggestions for new arrivals, long-time favourites and titles coming soon. Stop shuffling aimlessly through Netflix's library, and just take our word for it.

We will update with new suggestions biweekly -- feel free to check back whenever you're at a loss.
