·7 min read

Sure, summer always means big action on the big screen — but streaming TV this July is also bringing the big guns, too. From Netflix’s most expensive movie ever, to family-friendly hits and plenty of mysteries, there’s more than enough to keep us out of the heat this month.

We’ve taken deep dives through the streaming ranks of new additions coming to Netflix, Peacock, Disney+, Hulu, Prime Video, HBO Max and Paramount Plus, and broken down all the sci-fi, fantasy and horror hitting them in July 2022.

Check out the best of the best, as well as the full rundowns, below.

HIGHLIGHTS

Stranger Things 4: Volume 2 (Netflix): The super-sized season finale of Netflix’s horror hit arrives to kick off July, and you’ll need most of the holiday weekend to binge watch these two movie-sized episodes. Who will survive as the kids head to the Upside Down to take on Vecna? We can’t wait to find out.

The Bad Guys (Peacock): The animated big screen hit heads to Peacock to make for the perfect summer family movie at home. The film, adapted from the hit children’s book series, is basically a Tarantino heist movie filtered through a clever lens of fun animals and cool animated action.

Resident Evil (Netflix): The live-action zombie franchise makes the jump to the small screen with a time-twisting thriller at Netflix. The series is set in two time periods, digging into a shiny modern-day Umbrella Corp. and the looming zombie post-apocalypse the corporation always seems to bring about.

The Gray Man (Netflix): One of Netflix’s biggest, most ambitious action flicks finally makes it to the small screen. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame), the film is a 007-style spy thriller starring A-listers Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, Jessica Henwick, Rege-Jean Page, Ana de Armas and more. it’s also supposed to be epic, marking Netflix’s most expensive movie ever made.

The Resort (Peacock): One of Peacock’s most intriguing new originals is this dark comedy thriller starring William Jackson Harper and Cristin Milioti. The duo play a married couple drawn into a mystery 15 years in the making.

Paper Girls (Prime Video): It’s been a long time coming, but the live action adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s coming-of-age sci-fi comic is finally hitting this month. The story follows a group of girls who find their newspaper delivery gig leading them to stumble into a wild time travel sci-fi adventure.

Harley Quinn: Season 3 Premiere (HBO Max): One of the best adult animated shows on TV is back for a fresh batch of adventures. HBO Max’s hilarious, R-rated take on the weirdest corner of the DC universe looks to follow Harley, Ivy and all their pals as they just try to make a life in Gotham (while committing a few crimes along the way).
