If you're looking to avoid theater crowds and take advantage of that Netflix subscription, July has a whole lot of new stuff to offer, including new original content from the streaming service, like 'Hemlock Grove' season 2 and Netflix's new anime series 'Knights of Sidonia.' Read on for our guide to the best new releases hitting Netflix Instant in July 2014.
Those who have finished binging their way through 'Orange is the New Black' season 2 by now (and if you haven't, get on it) were dismayed to find that some of their favorite characters only put in limited appearances. And while we've overwhelmingly heard of Litchfield ladies upped to series regular, it seems at least one cast member present from the beginning may only put in a minor appearance, if any.
After Marvel's forthcoming Netflix 'Daredevil' series cast its biggest roles in Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock and Vincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin, we were a bit surprised to see Rosario Dawson's unknown character next in line for a big reveal. Now, our new Foggy Nelson has at last been found, courtesy of 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' star Elden Henson!
We weren't altogether surprised to learn that 'The Killing' would likely breathe its last with the forthcoming final season on Netflix, but for a series that has defied the odds of survival at every turn, season 4 doesn't look to be going down without a fight. Get a first look at Joan Allen menacing cadets before Holder and Linden show up, in a brand-new look at 'The Killing' season 4!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the development of the Wachowski's forthcoming global Netflix drama 'Sense8,' but with shooting set to begin in recent weeks, the world-spanning cast has finally been revealed. The mysterious 'Sense8' will feature 'LOST' star Naveen Andrews, along with Daryl Hannah and 12 others.
We were only mildly surprised when AMC's 'The Killing' escaped yet another cancelation to line up a fourth season on Netflix, though given the reduced episode order, and increasing demand for actors Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos, additional seasons seemed questionable at best. Now, showrunner Veena Sud has spoken out on future episodes beyond 'The Killing' season 4, and what changes the Netflix model has offered for the series.
Some 'Orange is the New Black' fans have yet to finish binging the entirety of season 2, yet already season 3 has been buzzing about with new additions and promotions. Following Mary Steenburgen's addition to the cast, the 'Justified' actress' matronly role has been revealed, while yet another star has been upgraded to series regular, and a major villain might not be so departed as we thought!
The late-night landscape seems to have largely settled since Stephen Colbert signed on to replace Dave Letterman as host of 'The Late Show,' but those wondering if CBS might recruit Chelsea Handler to follow Craig Ferguson on the 'Late Late Show' can give it a rest. Netflix officially scooped up Handler for its first entry into the late-night talk show arena, signing the comedienne for a multi-year deal that includes a new comedy special and several documentaries.
Most 'Orange is the New Black' fans have barely had time to finish screening the second season of Netflix's breakout original series, but already the streaming service is making season 3 seem like an eternity away. Not only has recent 'Justified' addition Mary Steenburgen signed up for a mysterious new role, but yet another from the existing cast has ascended to series regular.
Netflix's 'Orange is the New Black' has already released its second season, and if you're anything like us, you're already hungry for the next round of episodes to come in 2015. So far, the cast of Litchfield ladies continues to grow, as Samira Wiley (Poussey!) is the latest original cast member to be added to the ranks of series regular for our next term.
