With summer upon her, Netflix is still finding reasons for us to stay indoors. That includes a promising horror line-up – from trilogy Fear Street and a Resident Evil animated series to Midsommar and a special episode of Kingdom – and family offerings such as Dora and the Lost City of Gold and the finale of Trollhunters.
