In some cases, we earn commissions from affiliate links in our posts.
Whether you’re a fan of comedies, gritty crime dramas, or peaceful nature shows, BritBox has something for you in their June schedule. We’re most excited for the return of Springwatch, but season 2 of Grace is a close second. Below, we take a look at the entire June lineup at BritBox (US).
Please also keep in mind that there are more events associated with the Queen’s Jubilee in June, but we’ve not yet seen any details on whether they’ll be included on BritBox. It’s possible there will be additions as we get closer to the date, but we haven’t heard anything one way or another.
Not a BritBox subscriber? You can sign up for one HERE on their website, or HERE on Amazon Video. Both options offer the same content, but some people find one or the other offers better compatibility with their devices or better overall streaming quality.

The Barking Murders (aka Four Lives)
Between June 2014 and September 2015, serial killer Stephen Port drugged, raped, and murdered four innocent gay men in his Barking flat. This three-part series by Jeff Pope (Isolation Stories, A Confession) and Neil McKay (The Suspician of Mr. Whicher, The Moorside) focuses on the victims’ loved ones and the determined investigators who fought to bring the killer to justice.
Stephen Merchant (The Office, The Outlaws) stars as Stephen Port, while Sheridan Smith (Gavin & Stacey, Cilla) is Sarah Sak, mother to one of the victims.
For those who prefer true crime shows that focus on the victims and the hard work of those who restore justice (as opposed to those shows which spotlight the evil acts and their perpetrators), this is an excellent choice.

Based on the best-selling Roy Grace book series by Peter James, this gritty crime drama follows John Simm as DS Roy Grace, a talented but tormented Brighton detective with a habit of using unorthodox methods. Years ago, his wife went missing, and he remains determined to get closure.
The new season is set a number of months on from his last investigation, and it will find him trying to prove a wealthy local businessman was responsible for his wife’s disappearance.
The series is adapted for TV by Endeavour writer Russell Lewis.
