Hello Summer and New Netflix Releases! #StreamTeam

Netflix Stream Team

I am a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam and will be happily sharing monthly tips and stories about how my family uses Netflix on a regular basis. (Okay, that’s an understatement. I should say CONSTANTLY. We use Netflix CONSTANTLY.) This post is sponsored by Netflix, of course!

Lots of stuff is going on right now: it’s the end of the school year, which may or may not include a kid or two (or three) graduating or being promoted to the next level of education. Monday is Memorial Day, which means you may have plans to honor those who have made the greatest sacrifice while defending our country and plans to barbecue with loved ones. Memorial Day is also the unofficial start to summer, which means you might be bathing suit shopping because pools are opening, and Oh My Gosh, if you follow antiquated fashion guidelines you can begin wearing white again next week. SO much to look forward to.

In fact, when I was pondering what I would write about for the Netflix Stream Team this month, my thoughts kept getting interrupted by announcements of all the shows and movies that we have to look forward to on Netflix very soon.

So…full circle!

Here are just a FEW of the shows and movies you can stream on Netflix now because they’ve just been released, or fairly soon and you don’t have long to wait:

Lady Dynamite: Comedian Maria Banford stars in this series that is inspired by her own life. It’s the sometimes surreal story of a woman who loses–and then finds–her s**t. Season 1 is streaming now.

Grace and Frankie: Ohhhhh my gosh, I love this Netflix Original show about unlikely friends starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda so much. Seasons one and two (brand new!) are available now.

The Do-Over: A Netflix Original film starring David Spade and Adam Sandler. The life of a bank manager is turned upside-down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure. Available May 27.

Bo Burnham/Make Happy: Symphonic. Honest. Primed for the spotlight. He’s here to spill a bright, comic mess on a dark world in this stand up special. Available June 3.

Orange is the New Black: This runaway hit comedy-drama about a women’s prison is a Netflix Original and the highly anticipated fourth season begins streaming on June 17!

The Little Prince: A little girl lives in a very grown-up world with her mother, who tries to prepare her for it. Her neighbor, the Aviator, introduces the girl to an extraordinary world where anything is possible, the world of the Little Prince. Available August 5.

One final sneak peek of Netflix news: it was just announced this week that, starting in September, Netflix will be the exclusive service streaming Disney, Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars movies and if that’s not ending this Stream Team update with a bang, I don’t know what is. This is HUGE NEWS, and I’m already dancing around my family room, thinking about the possibilities. IMAGINE IT FOR A MOMENT, why don’t you?

Let’s stream some great stuff this weekend, you guys! After all, you can only eat so many burgers and dogs.
