As the number of shows and movies available to stream in Australia continues to grow at an impressive rate, it can be tough to keep up with all the new additions to each streaming service each month.
We've all come to anticipate a new stable of Netflix Originals releases each month, but figuring out which shows they are and when exactly they become available isn't so easy. And what about the large number licensed shows and films that are made available to stream, if only for a limited time?
In an effort to keep you informed of the best shows and movies that are in the process of being added to Netflix, we'll be bringing you an updated list of what you can expect on the service on a monthly basis.
Not only that, we'll also be singling out the biggest releases, as well as a number of quality TV shows and films which we believe deserve your Netflixing time.
So get ready to kick off the month with an epic binge – here's what's new on Netflix in July 2018. Check out our top picks in the highlights video below!
TV shows highlights for July 2018
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: New 2018: Freshly Brewed (6/7/2018)
Finally! New episodes of Jerry Seinfeld's magnificent series in which he... Well, the title says it all, really. Guests include a number of comedy heavyweights, Jerry including the late Jerry Lewis, Ellen DeGeneres and Dave Chappelle.
The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale: Part 2 (15/7/2018)
Though it started as a weekly clip show that would release every Sunday, Netflix has changed things up by releasing a number of episodes of The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale in a batch, meaning you can binge right through them in an afternoon and then come to terms with the agonising wait until new episodes arrive. Worth it!
Orange Is the New Black: Season 6 (27/7/2018)
Netflix's award-winning prison drama Orange is the New Black is back for its sixth season, which sees the women taken to maximum security prison in the wake of last season's riot.
Movies highlights for July 2018
The Fast and the Furious (1/7/2018)
The film that started it all, The Fast and the Furious sees undercover police officer Brian O'Connor (the late Paul Walker) decide where his loyalty really lies when he becomes enamoured with the street racing family, led by Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), which he has been sent in to take down. If you still need more Fast and Furious action, you can follow the original film with the next four entries — all added to Netflix on the same day!
The Shining (15/7/2018)
Here's Johnny! Stanley Kubrick's masterful horror film The Shining sees a family's visit to an isolated hotel turn extremely dark when an evil spiritual presence influences the father (Jack Nicholson) into violence. Meanwhile, his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
Two best friends (played by Michael Cera and Jonah Hill), along with their geeky sidekick, McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), go on a quest to buy alcohol for a party in the hopes of scoring with the girls of their dreams (one of which is played by Emma Stone). Things don't quite go to plan, thanks in part to a pair of party animal cops (played by Seth Rogen and Bill Hader). One thing's for certain — this will be a night they'll never forget.
