It’s Friday! Friday! Gotta get down on Friday! Ahem. Sorry. We’re just a bit excited about all the new content coming to Netflix tonight and over the weekend.
Here’s everything we’ll be gleefully watching during the next 53 hours or so – from the Jessica Jones finale to An Inconvenient Sequel.
Tonight, Netflix will be dropping the third and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones onto its servers. Sadly, it’s highly unlikely we’ll be getting any more episodes after this. Same goes for Daredevil, Luke Cage, The Punisher and Iron Fist. (Blame Disney Plus.) If you’re a superhero fan, you owe it to your inner Marvel zombie to binge-watch this final adventure.

That service, Disney+, now has a release date and we have some idea about pricing and available content. Here's everything we know.Read more
Other noteworthy shows landing on Friday include the Jennifer Aniston/Adam Sandler comedy Murder Mystery, cult kid’s flick The Witches and the thought-provoking sequel to An Inconvenient Truth. There are also a handful of new Netflix Originals, spanning movies, TV shows, documentaries and anime.
Here’s the full list of everything that will be appearing between June 14 and June 16. Click on the trailers to whet your appetite!
