We know: it’s cold. Freezing, actually. And while many a fitness fanatic likes to champion the phrase, “Summer bodies are made in winter,” sometimes you just have to accept the fact that braving skies greyer than George Clooney’s hair and winds that come lashing at your face are just not worth it. Given the string of months we’ve had, ones where the global coronavirus pandemic seems to rear its head every other week so as to see us go into lockdown, it makes sense then that the majority of time should be spent in doors, where temperature can be regulated with a device, thick duvets can be thrown over shivering bodies at will, and hot water bottles can be used whenever you see fit.
Given the barren wasteland that is the outdoors in winter, the demand we have for entertainment options available on Netflix is high. For the streaming giant, this is a month of high-pressure. Get it right, and you practically have us at your disposal every day of the month. Get it wrong though, and we might just jump-ship to another platform. But as is always the case, somehow Netflix has outdone itself, promising a long list of original series, TV dramas and sensational flicks to see us into the dark forays of winter hibernation.
From Fear Street, a new R.L. Stine-inspired horror trilogy sure to bring some classic scares, as well as genre shows like Van Helsing, there promises to be something for everyone this month. July will also see the return of the entire Harry Potter franchise, with all eight films landing n Netflix Australia on July 15. To help take the guesswork of what to watch this July on Netflix, here’s everything coming to the streaming platform.
