6 Films or Shows Coming to Netflix in July That We Are Hyped About

Although we’re finally able to go outside again, Netflix is still giving us enough reasons to stay indoors. We created a list of six films or shows that we don’t mind staying on our couches for when they come to Netflix this July.

1. Cable Girls – Season 5 Part 2 (3 July)

Lidia, Marga, Carlota, and Óscar will be fighting their final battle, and this time it’s for all women. Las Chicas Del Cable, the very first Spanish Netflix original series, is coming to an end on July 3.

The show is set in Madrid, 1928. A national telephone company opens its headquarters in the center of the city and hundreds of girls line up to get jobs as telephone operators. The company was, at the time, the only place that stood for progress and modernity. Four women from different backgrounds start working there together. This Spanish period drama shows the hardships and severe restrictions of rights that Spanish women had to deal with in the ’20s.

2. Down to Earth with Zac Efron (10 July)

He can sing, dance, act, and he is sustainable? It may be time to make Zac Efron our white boy of the month! Following his last acting role as Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Zac Efron is now taking a completely different route. The actor is fronting a Netflix travel docuseries, Down to Earth with Zac Efron, that explores healthy and sustainable ways of living.

Alongside wellness expert Darin Olien, Efron travels to France, Iceland, Costa Rica, Lima, and more to learn about different ways to consume everything, from our food to our power. Down to Earth with Zac Efron comes out on July 10.

3. Cursed (17 July)

The sword Excalibur belongs to the one true king. But what if King Arthur’s sword chose a queen? Cursed is a brand-new Netflix original series based on the eponymous book by Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller and comes out on July 17. The queen in question is played by 13 Reasons Why actressKatherine Langford.

The story of Cursed gets told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman with a mysterious gift. After her mother’s death, she joins Arthur to find Merlin to give him the Excalibur, an ancient and legendary sword.

4. Love on the Spectrum (22 July)

Following the success of Netflix’s dating shows like Love is Blind and Too Hot to Handle, the streaming company is continuing their streak but adding a bit more inclusivity.

Stepping into the dating world can be hard for anyone, but it’s even more difficult for people on the autism spectrum. Love on the Spectrum, which will be released on July 22, is an uplifting four-part documentary that follows seven young singles as they explore the unpredictable world of love and relationships. The docu originally aired on ABC Australia last year, but Netflix is now making the show available for viewers in other countries.

5. The Kissing Booth – Part 2 (24 July)

Like it or not, a second part of The Kissing Booth is coming out this month! The first part was released in May 2018 and revolves around Elle, a young girl that falls in love with bad boy Noah. Only she’s not supposed to be in a relationship with him because he’s the older brother of her best friend.

The Netflix original has been met with positive, but also a lot of negative feedback from fans and critics. Some viewers called it sexist, cliché, and problematic. Still, it’s a guilty pleasure for many. This one will probably be no different, especially if we get to see a shirtless Jacob Elordi again. Watch the second part of The Kissing Booth on July 24.

6. The Umbrella Academy – Season 2 (31 July)

The Umbrella Academy is re-opening again! This American superhero series is based on a comic book series of the same name by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, who also executive-produced the show. The legendary cast consisting of Ellen Page (Juno), Tom Hopper (Game of Thrones), Robert Sheehan (Misfits), and more will make a comeback in the show’s second season on July 31.

The series revolves around a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death. During all of that, they must deal with the threat of an impending apocalypse.
