Netflix July 2018 new releases: the best movies and TV shows streaming this month

Orange is the New Black season 6, new episodes of Jerry Seinfeld's unorthodox chat show, and Anne With an E season 2 arrive on Netflix in July

Orange is the New Black season 5

It’s another jam-packed month on Netflix UK, marked by the return of the streaming service’s flagship series Orange is the New Black.


Now in its sixth season, OITNB begins a new era after last year’s finale saw the prisoners being carted out of the show’s original setting of Litchfield penitentiary.

The ladies formerly of Litchfield are in good company, too: Anne with an E and beloved sports documentary Last Chance U both return for another helping.

The Crown - Matt Smith, Peter Morgan, Claire Foy - Writer/Creator Peter Morgan with Matt Smith (Prince Philip) and Claire Foy (Queen Elizabeth II) (Netflix, TL)

On top of this, July brings new episodes of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with guests such as Ellen DeGeneres and Dave Chappelle, and the latest season of Suits, which returns without the newest member of the royal family, Meghan Markle.

Plus, there’s some top notch British TV coming too, including the fourth series of Sherlock, and the live-action Mr Bean series.
