Chances are, you've been on the edge of your seat for months waiting to see the conclusion of the international hit, Lupin. The French crime series was all anyone could talk about when it was released in January, and now we finally get to see the final episodes -- not Season 2, but Part 2. Unfortunately, nothing else going on at Netflix over the coming days is going to match this in terms of excitement.
That said, if you like Elite, the melodramatic Spanish-language show about teens who get involved in a murder, you have Elite: Short Stories to look forward to. No, it's not the highly anticipated fourth season, but a character-driven miniseries that will drop new episodes throughout the week. There's also Wish Dragon, an animated movie about a kid who befriends a wish-granting dragon, and Season 2 of the zombie drama Black Summer. It's a mixed bag. Below are all the new releases on Netflix for the week of June 11-17, 2021.
All titles debut on Friday, June 11 unless otherwise noted. Here's what came out on Netflix last week.
If you're looking for even more hand-picked recommendations, we have plenty. If you'd like to see what else is on Netflix in June, here's everything that's coming to and leaving the service.
Lupin, Part 2
Part 1 of Lupin left off on a huge cliffhanger when Assane Diop's (Omar Sy) son was kidnapped during a family trip. The remaining five episodes are all about Diop's search for Raoul (Etan Simon), all while evading the cops who are determined to catch France's greatest thief.
Elite: Short Stories
Fans of Elite didn't necessarily need another reason to get hyped for the upcoming fourth season, but this miniseries -- of which there will be four parts, consisting of three episodes each -- is giving you just that. Each installment centers around different characters after the events of Season 3, checking in with how Nadia (Mina El Hammani) and Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau) are dealing with long-distance, and how Ander's (Arón Piper) cancer diagnosis has changed his relationship with Omar (Omar Ayuso).

The first season of Netflix's zombie drama centered around a group of strangers banding together in order to survive, and the second season will show them being hit with all new, very undead challenges. [Trailer / Thursday, June 17]

Rhyme Time Town, Season 2
Nursery rhyme characters come to animated life in the second season of this adorable series. It's intended for preschoolers but if you're an adult who just needs a break, no one will judge you. [Trailer / Tuesday, June 15]
Do you love penguins? I love penguins. I would happily watch a show that only consisted of footage of them waddling around, and that's basically what this docuseries is, so clearly someone at Netflix has been reading my dream journal. Patton Oswalt narrates. [Trailer / Wednesday, June 16]
Record of Ragnarok, Season 1
Netflix's latest anime is about a group of vengeful but benevolent gods who give humanity one last chance to redeem themselves before wiping humankind out entirely. [Trailer / Wednesday, June 16]

After his father dies, a teenage boy sets out on his own coming-of-age story by moving to New York, searching for his estranged mother, and finding love. Classic. [Trailer / Wednesday, June 9]
