June marks the start of summer. But when you’re not outside barbecuing, hitting the beach, sipping some ice cold beer, biking a great trail, climbing mountains, or camping, you need something to do—right? Thankfully, Netflix is here to help.

This month brings a whole range of new television shows and movies for you to stream, including big blockbuster releases like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Thor: Ragnarok, as well as Netflix Originals like GLOW: Season 2, Luke Cage Season 2, and the long-awaited Sense8: The Series Finale. If you’re not a fan of those titles, don’t worry, Netflix has plenty more for you to check out.

Here are a few great picks to check out, plus everything else hitting the streaming service this month.

Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok – June 5
Need to decompress after everything that went down in Avengers: Infinity War? Jump back one movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and take an intergalactic road trip with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) as they try and save Asgard from the evil Hela (Cate Blanchett). Director Taika Waititi brings his comedic sensibility—and CGI acting skills—to the MCU, making this probably the funniest superhero movie you’ll ever see. And, oh yeah, Tessa Thompson kicks major ass as Valkyrie.

The Staircase – June 8
Netflix continues its run of fantastic crime documentaries (Making A Murderer, The Keepers, Evil Genius) with this in-depth look at one of the more bizarre murder cases in recent memory. The show follows the murder case involving author Michael Peterson, who was accused of killing his wife in 2001 under very mysterious circumstances. Oscar-winner Jean-Xavier de Lestrade (Murder on a Sunday Morning) previously looked at the case in two other series, and this set of episodes will update the recent events involving Peterson.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – June 26
While The Last Jedi might be the most divisive Star Wars film, it’s certainly the most ambitious and creative. Director Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) puts his own spin on the galaxy far, far away, giving Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) a new padawan to train in Rey (Daisy Ridley), while Finn (John Boyega) explores a new casino planet, and Poe (Oscar Isaac) butts heads with General Leia (Carrie Fisher) as they try and keep the Resistance going. Keep your eyes out for the throne room fight with Rey and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)—it might be the best lightsaber battle in the whole film series.

Cooking on High – June 22
This Netflix Original series is described as the “first-ever competitive cannabis cooking show,” and the laid-back nature makes it a perfect thing to check out as summer starts to set in. In this show, two chefs go head-to-head to see who can create the best marijuana-infused dishes for a panel of “very chill celeb judges.”

Marvel’s Luke Cage: Season 2 – June 22
The bulletproof hero of Harlem returns. Following his turn on The Defenders, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is back to help his neighborhood, but this time he might have met his match when Bushmaster (Mustafa Shakir), a mysterious newcomer with astonishing powers, appears and tries to take a piece of Harlem for himself.
