Get a load of these returning favourites and new obsessions to stream this summer
Hunters, cops and convicts are shaking up the streaming scene this month. Here are some of the latest TV and movie additions to stream on Netflix at your convenience.
Sacred Games (Season One) – July 6
Currently being hailed as “the new Narcos,”Sacred Games is the first Netflix Original series from India. Adapted from Vikram Chandra’s award-winning eponymous novel, the eight-episode series takes place in contemporary Mumbai, where a cantankerous cop named Sartaj Singh is tipped off on the whereabouts of crime lord Ganesh Gaitonde. But as the two cross paths, their lives begin to connect and clash in a chaotic sequence of violent events. Judging by the trailer, the show looks just as enticing as Narcos, but will it live up to its hype? We’re stoked to find out.
The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter – July 6
Want to enjoy the outdoors while staying indoors? Then be sure to check out this amusing dramedy featuring Josh Brolin as Buck Ferguson, a hunting-show host who plans out an episode featuring a special guest appearance – his estranged 12-year-old son, Jaden (Montana Jordan). Unfortunately for Buck, connecting with his audience comes more naturally to him than bonding with his kid. Along with the company of Buck’s trusty cameraman Don (Danny McBride), the father-son duo set out on an epic adventure into the woods.
How It Ends – July 13
Sci-fi lovers, we have you covered as well. Joining the ranks of this year’s Netflix Original fantasy/action dramas (Lost in Space and Mute, we haven’t forgotten about you) is How It Ends. The film centres on a bizarre apocalyptic event that transforms roads into utter mayhem. Amid the pandemonium, one young father is desperate to get home to his pregnant wife on the other side of the country. With a cast featuring the likes of Theo James (Divergent), Forest Whitaker (Black Panther) and Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries), expect to see some thrilling performances.
Orange Is the New Black (Season Six) – July 27
Our favourite jailbirds are back and by the looks of it they’re in even more trouble than last year. Season Five of the popular prison drama surprised viewers as Piper, Taystee and co. seized control of the prison after a riot broke out. Their power, however, was short-lived as the S.W.A.T. team was called in. How will the ladies fare now that they might be heading into a maximum-security facility? We can’t wait to see how this all plays out.
