While the UK prepares to slowly exit lockdown and restart some measure of normality across society, Netflix is giving you no reason to leave the house just yet, with a jam-packed July of entertainment.
Cable Girls, Derry Girls, Norseman, Good Girls and Last Chance U all return for new seasons, led by the second run of The Umbrella Academy. New series, meanwhile, include Cate Blanchett-created Stateless and Arthurian retelling Cursed, plus a reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club for family audiences and a reimagining of The Grudge for adult viewers.
Big screen favourites such as Mission: Impossible – Fallout, the original Jurassic Park trilogy and BlacKkKlansman are all on the way too, joined by Netflix original actioner The Old Guard and rom-som sequel The Kissing Booth 2. Also, Zac Efron hosts his own travel show.

Yvonne Strahovski and Dominic West co-star.

Derry Girls: Season 2 – 9th July

A main character in the best-selling Baby-Sitters Club books, she was one of the only Asian Americans in 80s-90s popular culture. Not only was Claudia a rare Asian American protagonist, but she also defied stereotypical portrayals of Asian characters: she was creative, popular, and (gasp!) bad at school.
