What's on Netflix This Week: Virgin River Season 3, Never Have I Ever Season 2, Gunpowder Milkshake

Plus, the horror sequel Fear Street Part 2

Allison Picurro

Can you even believe Virgin River is back? After a long, long wait, Netflix's popular romance series finally returned for Season 3, and while you may have stayed up late just to binge all the episodes as soon as they dropped, the platform has a lot of other good stuff premiering in the coming days to keep you entertained after you finish.

The R.L. Stine film adaptation, Fear Street Part One: 1994, only recently premiered on July 2, but its sequel, Fear Street Part Two: 1978, has already dropped, because the devil works hard but Netflix works harder (Part 3 comes out next week). There's also Season 2 of Mindy Kaling's teen comedy series, Never Have I Ever, the new star-studded action film Gunpowder Milkshake, and the fourth and final season of Atypical. Below are all the new releases on Netflix for the week of July 9-15, 2021.

All titles debut on Friday, July 9 unless otherwise noted. Here's what came out on Netflix last week.

If you're looking for even more hand-picked recommendations, we have plenty. If you'd like to see what else is on Netflix in June, here's everything that's coming to and leaving the service

The Biggest Releases

Virgin River, Season 3
[Season 2 spoilers ahead!] If you've been hanging on impatiently since that Season 2 cliffhanger, the wait is finally over. Season 3 picks up after Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) found Jack (Martin Henderson) bleeding out on the floor of his bar after being shot by an unknown assailant. Meanwhile, Doc (Tim Matheson) has been given a mysteriously grim diagnosis from his doctor, and Paige (Lexa Doig) skipped town and left her son with Preacher (Colin Lawrence) after her ex-husband's twin brother discovered where she was. Bring on the romance, bring on the drama, bring on the quaint small town vibes.

Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) is having herself a hot girl summer as she tries to determine who should come out victorious in her love triangle.

Also, she's applying for colleges! Be glad you're not in high school anymore. [Trailer / Thursday, July 15]
