Happy Fourth of July weekend, television friends. You know what that means: BBQs, beaches, bubbles... and sitting in your air-conditioned home away from mosquitos while enjoying Netflix. Only one of those options sounds sweat-free — and it's certainly not the situation that involves standing next to a hot grill.
Netflix knows you want to stay cool this Independence Day and has stacked the service with tons of brand new offerings this week. Of course, there's the very summery season 3 premiere of Stranger Things arriving on Thursday, July 4 at 3 a.m. ET on the dot. But, there's more to stream this weekend than the sci-fi saga of Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) & Friends. There are comedy specials, tons of international projects, and the return of Netflix's softest YA series.
We're here to help you figure out what's worth your time this long holiday weekend — plus info on the one upcoming comedy special you need to know about once you're back at work. These are all the new Netflix offerings broken down by plot, genre, and whether you should watch something immediately or skip for now. Keep reading for the lowdown on all of these Netflix treats, complete with trailers.
