Summer’s here and people across the world are getting vaccinated and getting out of the house, but Netflix wants to give you some reasons to stay home with its July lineup of movies and series.
Those reasons start with some of our highlights below: the Fear Street film trilogy (based on R.L. Stine’s horror book series), season 2 of series creator Mindy Kaling’s teen comedy Never Have I Ever, star-studded action film Gunpowder Milkshake, part 1 of Kevin Smith’s animated Masters of the Universe: Revelation show, and the second season of teen drama Outer Banks.
Be sure not to miss the premiere of bizarre dating show Sexy Beasts, in which dating hopefuls wear costumes to get to know each other before making physical judgements; the final season of Atypical; an animated series adaptation of video game franchise Resident Evil; romantic comedy Resort to Love, starring Christina Milian and Jay Pharoah; season 2 of sketch comedy series I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson, and a whole lot more.

Description: Outer Banks is a coming-of-age story that follows a tight-knit group of local teens (the “Pogues”) in the beach vacation destination of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. After their near-death escape, season 2 finds John B and Sarah on the run – and in over their heads – in the Bahamas. New friends also bring new foes as they’re back on the trail of the gold, while the stakes for Kiara, Pope, and JJ rapidly escalate at home. The $400 million is still in the game, but will the uncovering of a new-found secret reunite the group for a fresh mission? The adventure of a lifetime awaits, but uncharted waters ahead mean our Pogues must do all they can to make it out alive.
