Another busy day of new releases on Netflix in the United States with the return of a rom-com from the past decade, the sublime new seasons of the Danish political drama exclusive to Netflix, and a few other international highlights.
Netflix added nearly 40 new releases yesterday, so if you missed one, check back to our roundup here.
There are still a few titles to look forward to before the end of the week. The big new release tomorrow from Netflix itself is INTERCEPTERan action thriller directed by Elsa Pataky and Luke Bracey.
Best new movies and shows on Netflix for June 2
Deposits – Power & Glory (Season 1)
Form: Sidse Babett Knudsen, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Simon Bennebjerg, Magnus Millang, Özlem Saglanmak
Author: Adam Price
Duration: 58 minutes

Borgen is arguably the best political drama you’ve probably never seen. All of the previous three seasons are on Netflix (they aired more than a decade ago), and the fourth season is out today exclusively on Netflix.
Here’s what to expect from the fourth season:
Foreign Minister Birgitte Nyborg is in jeopardy when a dispute over oil in Greenland threatens to turn into an international crisis.
The DUFF (2015)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: Ari Sandeli
Form: Mae Whitman, Bella Thorne, Robbie Amell
Author: Josh A. Cagan, Kody Keplinger
Duration: 101 minutes
awards: 1 win & 8 nominations
The DUFF has come and gone from Netflix before and was recently removed two months ago. It’s back now, though, and we’d recommend giving it a spin, given the number of high-profile actors currently starring in major titles.
Here’s what to expect if you haven’t seen the movie before:
“When a bright teen discovers her classmates’ demeaning label for her, she enlists the help of the school’s soccer star for a massive makeover.”
