The new releases on Netflix in July feature dozens of movies and shows, but none are bigger — both literally and figuratively — than Part 2 of Stranger Things Season 4. The two episodes will run nearly four hours long, with the supersized finale clocking in at a Marvel-esque two hours and 20 minutes. That's a lot of Stranger Things

Netflix also has a pair of big-time new movies coming out in July. First up on July 8 is the animated feature The Sea Beast, a family-friendly seafaring adventure film from the director of Moana that has already been receiving glowing reviews. Later in the month, behold Netflix's deep pockets with The Gray Man, the streamer's most expensive film yet. It stars Ryan Gosling as a CIA agent hunted down by the government, including his former coworker, played by Chris Evans.

Below, we've got all the new movies and shows coming to Netflix in July. We've put together our picks of what to watch on Netflix in July 2022, plus lists of everything coming to and leaving Netflix in the month. 

The Best New Netflix Movies and Shows in July

Millie Bobby Brown and Matthew Modine, Stranger Things

Stranger Things 4: Volume 2 (July 1)

The last two episodes of Season 4 will pick up after the stunning revelation of Vecna's (Jamie Campbell Bower) true identity, as the Hawkins crew try to stop him from killing more teenagers and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) works to regain her powers so she can defeat him once and for all. But we just want to hang out with our new pal Eddie (Joseph Quinn) some more! [Trailer]

The Sea Beast (July 8)

Most Netflix original kids movies are just re-dubs of second-tier CGI films from foreign studios, but The Sea Beast, from Moana and Big Hero 6 director Chris Williams, looks like a legitimate contender for best family film of the year. A young girl stows away on her idol's ship to help him hunt gigantic sea creatures, leading to seafaring adventure and action. It's getting great reviews, and features three TV Guide favorites as voice actors: The Boys' Karl Urban, Legion's Dan Stevens, and Chernobyl's Jared Harris. -Tim Surette [Trailer]

Persuasion (July 15)

Dakota Johnson gets her Austen on in this period piece. It's the latest adaptation of Jane Austen's last novel, where Anne Elliot (Johnson) reconnects with the man to whom she was once betrothed, Captain Frederick Wentworth (Cosmo Jarvis), almost a decade after she called off the engagement because she was listening to other people and not her own heart. We've heard good things about this one. [Trailer]

Uncharted (July 15)

This video game adaptation is one of the highest grossing movies of 2022 so far, and now it's coming to Netflix. It stars Tom Holland — proving he can carry a franchise outside of the Marvel machine — and Mark Wahlberg as treasure hunters. It's no one's favorite movie, but this is what we've conditioned ourselves to enjoy. [Trailer]     

Virgin River Season 4 (July 20)

Netflix's soapiest romance drama returns for a new season. The Season 3 finale was packed with cliffhangers, including Jack (Martin Henderson) proposing to Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and her revealing to him that she's pregnant and unsure if he or her late husband is the father. He's probably still going to be the father even if he's not biologically the father, though, right? That would be very uncool if he was like "OK, bye!" 

The Gray Man (July 22)

Ryan Gosling's first movie since 2018 is this mega-budgeted action thriller from Endgame and Infinity War directors the Russo Brothers. He plays Court Gentry, a CIA black ops guy who's trying to not get captured or killed by his former colleague Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), who you can tell is a psychopath from his mustache. The ubiquitous Ana de Armas and aspiring superstar Regé-Jean Page co-star. [Trailer]
