What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in July 2017?
Staff Reporter | On 21, Jun 2017Reading time: 12 mins
Summer is here and while you may be planning a seaside getaway or a festival-filled weekend, we’ll be locking our doors to keep out the sunshine and clutching our TV and an electric fan. Why? Because even when school is out, Netflix is still hard at work.
Kids will be kept entertained over the holidays by Dawn of the Croods and The Adventures of Puss in Boots: Season 5, as well as Netflix’s groundbreaking second interactive TV special, which allows viewers to choose-their-own path through an episode of Buddy Thunderstruck. Adults, meanwhile, will have just enough to balance out their Game of Thrones watching with lighter entertainment: July sees the arrival of computer game adaptation Castlevania, new comedy series Friends from College, and the return of both Last Chance U and Zoo. Also on the way are two stunning Sundance hits, The Incredible Jessica James and Chasing Coral, new Jason Bateman drama Ozark and the sophomore season of the thrilling Shooter.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in July 2017:
Note: All dates are subject to change. This will be regularly updated throughout July to display the correct information.
Asian Provocateur: Season 1 – 1st July
Romesh Ranganathan is the latest to tackle the now-prolific genre of Comedian Travels Abroad. But the usual fish-out-of-water schtick is given a personal touch by the fact that he’s heading to his parents’ homeland of Sri Lanka – because his mum tells him to – to meet his Uncle Thiru and learn about his heritage. Ranganathan’s a naturally funny guy, something that the format allows to come through without beating you over the head with it.

David Robert Mitchell’s horror thriller follows Jay (Maika Monroe), who finds herself on a date gone terrifyingly wrong, when she wakes up post-sex strapped to a chair and is told that something is going to try and kill her. Why? We don’t know. Who? We don’t know that either. What we do know is that this entity will continue following her until it catches her and shuffles her off her mortal coil. It’s clever. It’s unconventional. And it’s very, very creepy.
