Netflix July 2021 - The Best New Movies And TV Shows To Watch

At long last, the world is slowly beginning to return to normalcy after a year of isolation and uncertainty. For over a year, people relied more heavily on streaming services than ever before due in large part to the widespread closure of movie theaters. Thankfully, megaplexes everywhere are reopening their doors — but that doesn't mean that at-home entertainment is on its way out.

In fact, streaming will continue to expand in the years to come, despite the media distribution field becoming more competitive. Take, for instance, Netflix. The undisputed king of streaming has made some big moves in recent months to maintain its status as such. From a partnership with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Partners to a landmark deal with Sony Pictures, the former DVD rental service has a ton in store for its countless subscribers. However, in terms of recent developments, July 2021 looks to be a noteworthy month for Netflix subscribers when it comes to the content they'll have at their fingertips.

Here's a handy guide to Netflix's July 2021 additions, and what you'll want to watch before they're gone.

July 2021 promises brand-new Netflix Original shows, plus continuations of old favorites

Netflix continues to provide an endless stream of original TV programs, and July 2021 has a mixed bag capable of satisfying even the pickiest viewers. 

First and foremost, a plethora of new titles are rapidly approaching their grand introductions, such as the jump back to the late 1990s "Generation 56k," the Spanish period drama "The Cook of Castamar," and the highly anticipated modernization of an '80s classic "Masters of the Universe: Revelation," among several other shows you won't want to miss.

Of course, July 2021 doesn't have to be about trying completely new things. Subscribers can return to old favorites, as a bunch of Netflix's exclusive series are receiving a batch of episodes in July. The first half of the month promises the second season of "Mortel," "Biohackers," and "Never Have I Ever," the fourth season of "Atypical," and the third season of "Virgin River." The remainder of July doesn't disappoint either, continuing the likes of "Sky Rojo," "Outer Banks," and "Glow Up." Not to mention, "Feels Like Ishq" and Season 3 of "How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)" will be released sometime in July too. (Exact dates to come.)

Loads of other TV series will hit Netflix in July 2021

Aside from the TV shows that come directly from Netflix itself, loads of outside programs are joining the ranks in the coming weeks. When it comes to brand-new projects, the magical cartoon "Centaurworld" will close out the month of July, with the "Schoolhouse Rock"-inspired "We the People" and the animated "Ridley Jones" preceding it. Joining these children's shows will be the Cartoon Network hit "Johnny Test," the fantasy favorite "The Bureau of Magical Things," and three seasons of the beloved anime "Sailor Moon."

Netflix isn't leaving out the adults in July, seeing as there are quite a few shows that are geared towards a more mature audience set to arrive next month. Arguably the most recognizable of the bunch is "Grey's Anatomy," which is will have its 17th season readily available for viewing on July 3. The third season of "Charmed" will follow suit on the July 24, with "The Walking Dead" Season 10 and "Wynonna Earp" Season 4 doing the same two days later. For any fans of the CW's "Flash" series, you'll want to stop by on the 28th if you care to give the seventh season of the DC comics-based title a watch.

Netflix has your July 2021 movie nights covered with several exclusive flicks

Not in the mood for a TV show, but still want to check out what else Netflix has been up to? No worries: The streamer has on offer plenty of original films — ranging from Kim Tae-hyung's mystery thriller "The 8th Night" to the family drama "The Guide to the Perfect Family" from filmmaker Ricardo Trogi. 

One of the most notable arrivals for July 2021 is the "Fear Street" trilogy, a group of R-rated horror flicks based on the R.L. Stine books of the same name, with a cast including Sadie Sink, Emily Rudd, and Benjamin Flores Jr. at the forefront.

This is only the tip of the iceberg, however, as there's more to Netflix's July 2021 Original Movies catalog than horror and thrillers. For example, the first of July will bring with it the anime film "Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway," and a mere five days later, the Russian action romp "Major Grom: Plague Doctor" will make its arrival. Also worth checking out are the historical drama "Chernobyl 1986," the stoner comedy "Bankrolled," and the Jojo Moyes adaptation "The Last Letter from Your Lover." 

All in all, July 2021 is full of variety when it comes to Netflix Original movies, and the lineup includes a little something for everyone.

A wide variety of cinematic favorites are on their way to Netflix in July 2021

Netflix is known for keeping its classic movie library well-stocked, and July 2021 isn't about to break that tradition. The month comes out of the gate strong on July 1 with such favorites as the "Austin Powers" trilogy, the first two "Kung Fu Panda" movies, and the Will Ferrell classic "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby." Additionally, the first three "Karate Kid" flicks will join the fray, with "Star Trek," "Stuart Little," and "Zathura: A Space Adventure" doing the same.

The first day of July offers tons of viewing options, and Netflix looks to keep the party going in the days and weeks to come as well. While 2013's "Snowpiercer," the Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart action-comedy "American Ultra," and Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" are worth getting excited over, the draw for many next month will surely be the entire "Twilight" saga. All five installments will be ready to marathon as of July 16, giving you all of the glittery-vampire-fueled late 2000s and early 2010s nostalgia you could possibly want.

Netflix's July 2021 additions include a few new documentaries and two comedy specials

Moving away from the realm of fiction, Netflix plans to add a handful of new documentaries and two comedy specials to its library in July 2021. 

As far as the former is concerned, there's a wide array of productions to put on your watchlist. The month opens with the emotional sports documentary "Audible," followed by the crime investigation "Private Network: Who Killed Manuel Buendia?", and the three-part biographical piece "Myth & Mogul: John DeLorean," to name a few. This is just a sample of what Netflix has on the docket next month, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for other documentaries throughout July 2021.

One stand-up comedy special arriving on Netflix next month is the Korean production "Lee Su-geun: The Sense Coach." Primed to hit the small screen on July 9, the special stars one of South Korea's biggest names in the stand-up game. Lee Su-guen has prepared a set that'll teach audiences all about social cues; along the way, he'll share entertaining stories about his many travels. 

Before that special drops, however, the second season of the sketch comedy series "I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson" will premiere on July 6.

Everything leaving Netflix in July 2021

As you can see, Netflix isn't holding back in July 2021 — providing a smorgasbord of TV shows, movies, and everything in between for all ages and entertainment preferences. However, this variety doesn't come without a cost: a large number of titles are about to disappear from Netflix by the end of the month. 

It will start out slow early in the month, seeing "The Iron Lady," "The Holidays," Disney's "The Princess and the Frog," and a handful of others take their bow. Then, on the 22nd, things pick up. That day will be the last call for all four "Oh My Ghost" movies on Netflix, and "The Croods" and "Spotlight" will say farewell on the 28th and 30th, respectively. 

The floodgates truly open on July 31st. Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" from 2009, all three seasons of "Hinterland," the Jack Black-led wrestling comedy "Nacho Libre," the reimagining of the Peter Pan mythos "Hook," and countess others are scheduled to spend their final hours on Netflix that day. 

If there's anything on the list you've been putting off for a while, you'd better square away some time to watch them sooner rather than later.
