If you’re a Sense8 fan who was devastated to hear that the series was canceled back in 2017, you’ve probably been eagerly awaiting the finale. Luckily, the acclaimed show's standalone last episode finally comes to Netflix on June 8, appropriately timed to LGBTQ Pride Month. And even better, the Sense8 finale is just one of the many great movies and shows coming to Netflix this week that you should absolutely check out.
As fans know, part of what made Sense8 so special to viewers was the show’s inclusive representation of LBGTQ characters. It's truly exciting that in addition to that series' finale, Netflix's lineup of new movies and TV shows this week includes plenty of other LGBTQ-focused content. Most notably, the site will premiere Alex Strangelove, an original Netflix movie about a teenage boy who comes to terms with being gay — while deciding whether or not to have sex with his girlfriend.
That’s not all Netflix has in store this week. This week, the site also premieres its highly anticipated true crime docuseries The Staircase, and Netflix is finally adding Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok to the superhero lineup. Check out all the new movies and shows coming this week below.
