June may be the best month of the year - temperatures soar above 90, the city's energy is palpable, and Netflix brings back some of their best shows. Sounds like a win/win all around, right?

So for those of us who like to stay in along with our AC these days, we've compiled a list of all of the films and TV coming to the streaming service this month. Orange is the New Black fans will be pleased to find out season 5 is now available, continuing the storylines that shocked us all last time around. Scandal, Arrow, and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are just some of the few series making their highly anticipated return to Netflix. Some other not-so-new but always oh-so-good gems include 13 Going On 30 - I can safely say I've already binge-watched it twice - and the critically acclaimed The Stanford Prison Experiment.

Here are some of this month's highlights, including what you'll be streaming all summer long:

13 Going On 30 (June 1)

Some consider this the best rom-com of the past decade. They're not wrong. The 2004 Gary Winick-directed film brought us one of Jennifer Garner's most genuine performances, as she's suddenly faced with being thirty, flirty and thriving way before she anticipated it. Not only is it one of the most comforting, feel-good films to hang out to, the soundtrack is equal parts amazingly curated and executed in all it's glory (Michael Jackson, Pat Benatar and Madonna are just some of the highlights). Bonus: Mark Ruffalo. Always.

Orange Is the New Black: Season 5 (June 9)

The last season of Orange is the New Black shocked us all into caps-lock tweeting about it for months. Now, the story continues, picking up right where it left off with an unexpected character death and the aftermath that remains. Beloved stars Uzo Aduba, Laura Prepon, and Dascha Polanco make their on-screen return. TV Guide has already written a shockpiece indicating we're not ready for this season whatsoever.

Scandal: Season 6 (June 16)

Scandal captured our hearts since it's premiere, and now it's time to come to terms with the fact that it's story is almost over. The president of ABC confirmed that Shonda Rimes' political drama will come to an end next year with it's seventh season. "Shonda has decided the series needs to come to a close, and while this is definitely a bittersweet moment for all of us gladiators, I have no doubt what she has in store for the final season will be as powerful as what's come before, and we will be sure to honor that every step of the way," Dungey said. However, it's sixth season has so far delivered all the juiciness we regularly tune in for.

The Stanford Prison Experiment (June 16)

This Kyle Patrick Alvarez-directed film made headlines for it's depiction of the controversial psychological experiment that took place at Stanford University in 1971. Students played the role of prisoners or security guards under the supervision of psychology professor Philip Zimbardo before things quickly get out of hand. It features strong performances from Jack Kilmer, Ezra Miller and Billy Crudup. Not an easy watch, but a good one.
