New on Netflix July: Need a vacation from your vacation…?

, ,

Somehow we managed to miss out on what was New on Netflix for June, but we’re back in time for the summer holidays with our New on Netflix July list for the U.S. and Canada. In case you missed it, there were a few great returning seasons of shows like House of CardsOrange is the New Black, and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt that returned in June. This month, Netflix has also provided a few tips for smarter watching based on viewing trends from around the world.


As a reminder shows that are coming to the U.S. only will be marked with (US), and likewise for shows coming to Canada (CA) only. If a show or movie isn’t marked with either US or CA, it will be coming to both services. Netflix has been kind enough to indicate which shows are available to view offline as well, which we’ve indicated by marking them with  after the title.

Before we get started, check out the Netflix July sizzle reel for the U.S.:

…and Canada.

Without further ado, check out what’s coming to Netflix U.S. and Netflix Canada in July.
