Here’s What Is Coming To Netflix In July 2018

The movies and shows you’ll soon be able to stream.

Get excited: The Netflix lineup for July is fairly good.

Blockbusters like “Jurassic Park” and “Happy Gilmore” join on July 1, as do the very popular two “Scooby-Doo” movies from the early 2000s. The “Scooby-Doo” movies had a combined box office of nearly half a billion dollars, despite featuring a main plot point about the members of Sugar Ray getting possessed by demons.

Personal favorites of mine, “Her” and “An Education,” join later in the month.

A couple of Netflix’s most popular shows are returning this month. A new season of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” which Netflix acquired from Crackle last year, debuts on July 6. “Orange Is the New Black” comes back July 27.

In my mind, the most noteworthy show to join the streaming service this month will be “The Sinner” on July 2. It was a hit for USA Network last year, but the show was hard to stream for most people. It stars Jessica Biel as a mother who kills a man at a public beach in front of other onlookers. The act of violence seems random and inexplicable at first, but as the series progresses, you learn more about the motive.

Netflix also loses a few movies, but most of them aren’t noteworthy. Last chance on “Beerfest!”

More unfortunate are the losses of “Michael Clayton” and the documentary behind the making of “Wet Hot American Summer.” The latter is kind of inexplicable since the “Wet Hot American Summer” spinoff is from Netflix.
