Though summer television isn't as bleak as it once was, we could all use some extra options between network seasons to fulfill our television fix. And since your DVR will be drying up soon, it's time to head to Netflix for some respite from the search for something to watch.

The Netflix original series Hemlock Grove debuts its second season on July 11 for those of you in the mood for some outrageously gory horror. The Eli Roth-produced show follows a pair of teens, one a werewolf and one a vampire, in a small town where weird things happen daily.

For science-fiction fans, a pair of Syfy's Canadian imports cure the summer doldrums. Lost Girl's fourth season will be available July 24 and Continuum's third season drops July 26. AMC's underrated Hell on Wheels also brings its third season to Netflix on July 19.

On the movie side of things, July's offering cover the spectrum of film genres, from the Tom Hanks seriousness ofPhiladelphia to the red-eyed humor of Cheech and Chong's Up In Smoke.
