This week not only brings the start of June but also a bunch of new movies and shows to Netflix. The new additions include a new cult docu-series, a new book-to-streaming adaptation, and a crime drama mini series starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

First up is Dancing for the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult. It heads to Netflix on Wednesday, May 29, 2024. The docu-series tells the story of several TikTok dancers who join what they think is a management firm but turns out to be a cult. As the management firm is directly tied to a church, it screams cult, but when you're in it and looking for something you think you're missing, it's very easy to end up in a place you never thought possible. The series also gets into the truth behind the founders of the 7M cult.

Eric and Geek Girl coming to Netflix this week

Eric is also headed to Netflix this week! You can check out the new mini-series on Thursday, May 30. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Gaby Hoffman, Dan Fogler, McKinley Belcher III, and Ivan Morris Howe and tells the story of a father who is struggling with grief for his missing son. But he soon finds a way to find some solace: by bonding with the monster that lives under his son's bed.

This week also brings Geek Girl! The book-to-streaming adaption comes to Netflix on Thursday, May 30, and follows a young neurodiverse teen who has her world turned on its head when she is scouted to become a model. As she goes on this journey, she must figure out how to deal with the complexities of both the fashion world and high school. The series is based on the book (and book series) of the same name by Holly Smale.

The show stars Emily Carey, Sarah Parish, Jemima Rooper, Tim Downie, Sandra Yi Sencindiver, and Liam Woodrum.
