Top 10 of the Best Romances New to Netflix June 2018

June’s nearly here and with it comes the promise of new additions to Netflix! For romance fans this month, it’s all about the power of Genre Movie/TV couples and “shipping.” Whether you prefer to root for romance in the traditional sense (aka canon and the importance of story first) like me or love to ship anyone and everyone together, there’re couples galore! Besides genre movies and shows, there’s also romantic dramas, romantic comedies, and more to enjoy as well.


From old favorites to new, let’s take a look at my romantic recommendations below for Netflix June 2018, each with the official description, personal commentary, rating, and the Netflix release date. Titles are listed in alphabetical order.

(NOTE: We aim to share less explicit content that has PG-13 “like” content and below minus a few exceptions for artistic merit and/or genre interest. If a program is Rated R or TV-M, we will leave a content note to let you know.)

#1 Ali’s Wedding (2017) – Netflix Original Movie

 After telling a white lie that spins out of control, the son of an Iraqi-born cleric in Melbourne becomes torn between family duty and his own heart.

 If this Australian romantic dramedy is as good as the trailer makes it look, then we may have a winner here!

#2 Disney’s Tarzan (1999)

#4 iZombie, Season 4

 Once a doctor on the fast track, Liv Moore is now a zombie turned crime-solver who gets insights from eating the brains of murder victims.

 If you love urban fantasy and paranormal romance with a touch of wit, then this show’s for you. I’m a little behind and can’t wait to find out what happens in the latest season especially with Jason Dohring (Moonlight, Veronica Mars) recurring.

Content Note: Rated TV-14

 When Stella finds out her terminal cancer is cured, she must learn to live with all the choices she made when deciding to live like she was dying.

#9 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

 Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares for battle with the First Order.

 There’s no doubt that The Last Jedi has been one of the most polarizing films in recent history. While the movie received fantastic reviews, the audience had mixed reactions, to say the least! Some hated the film, others loved it. And then some found themselves in the middle. I happened to love it.

I thought The Force Awakens was mediocre so I went into this film not expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised. For many of the same reasons people hated it, I loved it! Sweeping Romanticism with brooding Byronic and Romantic Heroes. Underlying romance with kindred spirits. Princess Leia bringing out some untapped power. I could go on. I say if you’re a fan of the Brontë’s and Dark Romanticism, then you may enjoy this Star Wars film. It’s Star Wars – Brontë style.

Oh, and there’s the awesome “possible” relationship between Rey and Kylo Ren. Yep, I’m a fan.

Content Note: Rated PG-13

Available on Netflix: June 26

#10 Us and Them (2018)

Top 10 of the Best Romances New to Netflix June 2018

 Two strangers meet on a train and form a bond that evolves over the years. After a separation, they reconnect and reflect on their love for each other.

 This popular Chinese film sounds like a great choice for fans of Before Sunrise! Though it looks more serious and perhaps tragic.
