In Curon, two teenage kids go in search of their mother Anna, who went missing in a small town in Northern Italy.

There’s no word yet on whether the conditional movement control order (CMCO) will be lifted after June 9. Regardless, staying home as much as possible will continue to be the norm for the foreseeable future. We hope our selection of new TV shows coming this month will keep you entertained.


This Italian supernatural series is drawing a lot of interest, with many comparing it to critically-acclaimed German thriller Dark from the looks of the trailer.

A mother of two returns to her hometown, Curon, in Northern Italy for the first time after 17 years. Shortly after her return, she mysteriously goes missing.

Her teenage twin children take it upon themselves to uncover the truth. What drove her to leave Curon all those years ago? Could it be linked to her recent disappearance? Starring Valeria Bilello and Luca Lionello.

Curon premieres June 10 on Netflix.
