Amazon Prime Video is ringing in the summer with a slew of new original series and films. The month starts off with specials from Sacha Baron Cohen — extra Borat Subsequent Moviefilm footage that will be labeled Borat Supplemental Reportings Retrieved From Floor of Stable Containing Editing Machine, which actually debuts May 25, but since it was just announced, it’s close enough to June that we’ll count it — and will include season 2 of Pop-turned-Amazon Original Flack, starring Anna Paquin as a no-nonsense PR maven, Brazilian original Dom, soccer docuseries El Rebaño Sagrado, and the final season of Los Angeles detective drama Bosch.
The streaming service is also hosting a dedicated Pride Month page that will feature a curated selection of LGBTQ-friendly titles from LGBTQ creators, actors, producers, writers and filmmakers. It’ll include recent Amazon Originals Uncle Frank and season 1 of YA drama The Wilds, alongside other license titles like Rocketman and the first five seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Amazon’s free sister streaming service, IMDbTV, also has a few notable debuts in June, including original comedy Timewasters and beloved children’s movie Paddington (hey, it’s no Paddington 2, a.k.a. the best-reviewed movie on Rotten Tomatoes, but it IS Certified Fresh at 97%).
Keep reading to find out what else is new on Amazon Prime Video and free sister service IMDbTV in June, with some highlights noted at the top.

Flack: Season 2 (2020)

Premiere Date: June 11, 2021
Bosch: Season 7 (2021)
Description: Based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling novel The Burning Room and the real arson case that inspired it, the seventh and final season of Bosch puts Detective Harry Bosch’s famous motto center stage: “Everybody counts or nobody counts.” When a 10-year-old girl dies in an arson fire, Detective Harry Bosch risks everything to bring her killer to justice despite opposition from powerful forces. The highly charged, politically sensitive case forces Bosch to face a grueling dilemma of how far he is willing to go to achieve justice.
Premiere Date: June 25, 2021
Description: After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Peruvian rainforest, a young bear (Ben Whishaw) makes his way to England in search of a new home. The bear, dubbed “Paddington” for the London train station, finds shelter with the family of Henry (Hugh Bonneville) and Mary Brown (Sally Hawkins). Although Paddington’s amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him: Taxidermist Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman) has designs on the rare bear and his hide.
Critics Consensus: Paddington brings a beloved children’s character into the 21st century without sacrificing his essential charm, delivering a family-friendly adventure as irresistibly cuddly as its star.
Premiere Date: June 16, 2021 on IMDbTV
