By now, network television shows have suffered from being cut short due to Covid-19. Luckily for home viewers, Netflix CEO, Reid Hastings has said that the COVID crisis will hardly affect content rolling out on the platform because they shoot months in advance and all at once. The same can be said for other services like Hulu and HBO.
All the shows and movies listed are season one and original movies, so continuing shows will not be suggested.

This docu-series follows the day to day lives of four doctors in Lennox Hill located in New York: two brain surgeons, an emergency room physician, and a Chief Resident OBGYN.
Love, Victor (Hulu/June 19th)
The series is the same idea the movie Love, Simon is which is a coming of age story about Victor exploring his sexuality. In Love, Simon, Simon has to deal with coming out to everyone. In Love, Victor, the main character will be at the beginning of stages of whether he likes boys or girls. This show goes well in honor of June being pride month.

This film was slated to release in theaters but instead, Disney has decided to put it on Disney+.

He desperately tries to save his father who has been kidnapped. In order to pay his ransom, Artemis must infiltrate an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. This has been in production since 2016 and hopefully, enough viewers watch so the rest of the series can be made into production.
Perry Mason (June 21st/HBO)
Perry Mason was an American legal drama series that originally broadcasted on CBS television from 1957 to 1966. The title character, portrayed by Raymond Burr, is a fictional Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer who originally appeared in detective fiction by Erle Stanley Gardner.
