What's New On Streaming for July

by Ronald Elias

“Ju-On: Origins” (Netflix, July 3)

Have you had enough of “The Grudge”? Or are you still holding a grudge over the kind-of reboot movie that came out in January?

Either way, Netflix is bringing Halloween out a little early this year with its own release of “Ju-On: Origins,” a series set in Japan that centers around a paranormal researcher investigating that begrudging little curse that spawned a film franchise. We were too scared to watch the above trailer, but maybe you horror fans out there will be brave enough to check it out. 

“Hamilton” (Disney+, July 3)

It’s finally happening. 

If you haven’t been one of the lucky millions who have gotten to see the smash hit musical “Hamilton” in person, then your chance to see it right in the comfort of your own home is finally here.

Originally scheduled to  come to  theaters in 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic led to Disney bumping up the release by a year and decided to bring it to Disney+ instead. 

The film is a live recording of various 2016 productions of the musical, featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda and the original principal cast of the musical.

"Star Trek” (Amazon Prime Video, July)

You’ll have plenty of time to live long and prosper when not one, not two, but nine different “Star Trek” movies hit Amazon Prime Video in July. 

Whether you want to go back to 1979’s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” relive the events of 1982’s “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” or soar through 1998’s “Star Trek IX: Insurrection,” you’ll have the makings of a whole summer’s worth of “Star Trek” content to keep even the most fastidious Trekker happy. 

“The Dog House” (HBO Max, July 30)

Fans of unscripted British TV shows are going to be in for, well, a treat when”The Dog House” hits HBO Max this July.

The show focuses on a rural British Dog Rescue Centre, taking viewers through the journey of abandoned dogs arriving at the centre, all the way through meeting with their prospective new owners. Animal fans everywhere aren’t going to want to miss this one. Netflix + dogs is a win in our book. 


“The Last Dance” (Netflix, July 19)

You might miss half of the shots you don’t take, but you’ll miss out on a lot more than that if you skip this summer’s hit docu-series “The Last Dance.” 

Focused on the Chicago Bulls during the 80s and 90s, the 10 episode series travels up and down the court as it follows superstar Michael Jordan and the rest of the team through one of the most exciting times in basketball history. 


Whether you’re a horror, sports, or reality show fan, July’s new streaming offerings have a little bit of everything for everybody. It’s the perfect time of the year to crank up the AC and marathon some great TV, so get ready for some summer binge-athons -- we’ll wait while you grab the ice cream and popsicles.
