In July, Netflix is expected to release 60 new original titles, including
some new seasons of famous television shows, completely new
movies, new films, new documentaries and even some new anime.
There’s a new season of Umbrella Academy, a high-profile Charlize
Theron movie, a sequel to popular teen rom-com The Kissing Booth,
a final season of the popular sports documentary series Last Chance
U, and The Babysitters Club’s widely awaited reboot.
That 60 number does not account for additional licensed content
which will be introduced by the streamer next month. Also landing on
Netflix are Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, Space balls, Cloud Atlas and
The Karate Kid trilogy.
By simple math, for every single day of July, Netflix will have nearly
two new original movies, with a host of additional licensed material
on top. Disney Plus, HBO Premium, Hulu, Apple TV Plus and
Amazon Prime Video are arguably five of the largest rivals for
Netflix. Quibi is in that pool, to a lesser extent, too. But none of the
providers are close to including Netflix’s number of originals next
