Netflix is celebrating the Fourth of July and the first weekend of the new month with a fresh slate of new content headed to the streaming library. Beginning on Friday, the streamer will add five new titles to the streaming lineup. This weekend, only a single title will not be a Netflix original series, film, or special. That title, Only, bares the tantalizing tag line, "a couple must endure a self-imposed quarantine and elude authorities after a mysterious virus proves lethal to the world's female population." That film will be added on Sunday.
Although the total number of additions may seem a little light compared to most weekends, the streamer more than made up for it throughout the week. As the world said goodbye to June and hello to July, Netflix stocked the streaming library with dozens of new additions. That means that subscribers have more than just a few options to keep them entertained. Making the weekend even sweeter is the fact that the number of titles leaving is on the low side.
Keep scrolling to see everything coming to Netflix this weekend, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that will be leaving before the end of the month.
