What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in July 2016

Do you feel it? That trickle of sweat running down your neck as the temperature creeps upward? The dog days of summer are at the door. If you don’t want to step outside into the blistering hellscape of July, you’ll need something to keep you distracted through the long summer, and Netflix has you covered. As the months turn, so does Netflix’s library of shows and movies, and this July the streaming service adds a lot of titles old and new.

The biggest returning original series for the ‘Flix is surely Bojack Horseman, a surreal black comedy that follows washed-up comic actor/humanoid horse Bojack Horseman (Will Arnett) as he tries to revive his career and his personal relationships. Although the bizarre character designs may be off-putting at first, Bojack Horseman is a surprisingly poignant show, one that deftly balances humor and darkness.

Netflix’s library of original programming has been eclectic, something that will only become more noticeable with the debut of Stranger Things, an eerie mystery that looks to pay homage to some of the best sci-fi flicks from the ’80s, with a distinct Spielberg vibe. Set in a small town in Indiana, the series appears to center on the disappearance of a young boy and the town’s efforts to find him.

If you don’t want to commit to a show, Netflix will also be adding some decent films, both classic and modern. Perhaps the biggest news is that the entire Back to the Future trilogy is coming to the streamer. Although some may dispute the quality of parts II and III, Back to the Future is a classic adventure film, following Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), a teenager who, after meeting an eccentric scientist, travels back in time to the ’50s and must find a way back. In addition, Netflix is loading up all four of the iconic Lethal Weapon films. (Well, the first couple are iconic, anyway.)

Critically acclaimed film The Big Short will also be coming to Netflix in July. The 2015 dramedy is based on an investigative book by Michael Lewis, and explores the true story behind a group of men who not only predicted that the United States housing bubble would burst, but even bet on it. The film is not only witty, but surprisingly educational as well.

As always, some titles will also be leaving Netflix in July. Be sure to catch the classic sci-fi films 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange, as well as beloved children’s series Reading Rainbow before they’re gone.
