Still suffering from the winter blues? Netflix is here to help you warm up and/or chill with a roster of sizzling new movies and TV shows. Unfortunately, there are also some impending departures that you’ll need to binge watch before they disappear from the service next month. Here’s the full list.

Note: This list refers to the US version of Netflix. It has a different library to Australia which changes from month to month. This information is only relevant to readers who access US Netflix using a VPN.

The Highlights

Let’s just get this out of the way. If you haven’t seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, save the date for July 18 to see the galaxy’s favourite droid, K-2SO — along with its fleshy, human compatriots — take on the Empire. If space isn’t your thing, or you’re in the mood for something familiar, Titanic, Free Willy, and — oh my goodness, Spawn: The Movie?! — all drop on July 1 to straight-up overload your nostalgia meter. Get some tissues.

Kids are in for a special treat with Netflix debuting interactive TV shows that function as choose-your-own-adventure programs. Its first film, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, is already available for streaming, while Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile debuts July 14. Both let you choose from two options at key points during the program to change the story’s progression and ultimately reach one of many predetermined endings. Have fun trying to watch every single one! It should keep your young ones occupied for a few extra minutes.

If that doesn’t do it, the first three Land Before Time films show up on July 1 and will no doubt capture (and restrain) your child to teach them about the concept of maternal loss and grief in the Cretaceous period.

Anime and video game fans rejoice! On July 7, a “vampire hunter fights to save a besieged city from an army of otherworldly beasts controlled by Dracula himself” in Castlevania, Netflix’s original series based on the Konami video game franchise. Expect lavishly adorned castles and spectacular outfits. Also, blood.

Netflix is dropping some original comedy specials throughout July, starting July 4 with the first season of The Standups, a series of six half-hour specials. July 18 brings some much-needed diversity with Aditi Mittal’s Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say, while Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special (smart) debuts July 25. Also funny? Netflix’s original series about buds in their 40s, Friends From College, debuting July 14.

Nothing gold can stay, and that certainly applies to shows on Netflix that have overstayed their welcome (look, it sounded better in my head). With what probably amounts to horrible timing, the late Adam West’s Batman: The Movie is leaving the service July 1, as is Blazing Saddles, and the first five seasons of Futurama. Other than than, you’ll be missing out on a few documentaries, The Last Samurai (good riddance), and the comedy special Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain.
