Netflix July 2019 new releases: the best movies and TV shows coming this month

Stranger Things, Queer Eye and Orange Is the New Black return alongside new original films The Red Sea Diving Resort and Point Blank

The cast of Stranger Things (Netflix)

This July, we journey once again to Hawkins, Indiana and the Upside Down for Stranger Things 3.


It’s a banner month for the streaming service, with the final ever season of Orange Is the New Black also arriving, alongside another round of Queer Eye (that’s four seasons in a year and a half for anyone who’s counting).

On top of this, there’s a load of Netflix Original films, including Point Blank, a thriller starring Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo, and the Chris Evans led The Red Sea Diving Resort. It’s his first role since handing over his Captain America shield to Mackie in Avengers: Endgame, so we’re expecting big things.

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)

And, as per usual, there are a lot of great non-original films coming, too, including Bridesmaids, A Simple Favour, Girls Trip and In Bruges.
