new shows

With the monsoon upon us in full swing, we already know how we’re spending our days in July. Snuggling up in bed and binge-watching new releases on OTT platforms, while biting into some hot samosa (‘cause it just goes with the weather perfectly). Got the same plan and wondering what to watch? We’re here to help. Ahead, we list all the new shows and movies on our roster this month.

1. Stranger Things Season 4: Volume 2

If you can’t tell yet by the numerous stories we’ve written already, we at ELLE are major fans of Stranger Things. Volume one ends with Nancy being taken to Upside Down so we will see her friends going to rescue her. Eleven finally gets some of her powers back in Season 4 Volume 1, and we’re super excited to watch her come back stronger than ever. Volume one also had all the characters scattered–Joyce went to save Hopper from Russia; Max, Lucas, Steve, Dustin, Robbin and Eddie were in Hawkins; and the rest were with Eleven, so we’re hoping to see everyone come together in Hawkins to defeat Vecna.
