Netflix is all set to unveil a collection of films, documentaries and new seasons of popular series.

From pulse-pounding thrillers to heartwarming romances, to gripping mysteries, here is what you can catch in July:

1. Sweet Magnolias: Season 3

Set in the charming small town of Serenity, the show follows the lives of three lifelong best friends — Maddie Townsend, Helen Decatur, and Dana Sue Sullivan as they navigate the joys and challenges of love, friendship and career.

They will also face both personal and professional obstacles along the way while striving to make their business venture a success.

Back for a third season on Jul 20, the Magnolias will be met with new struggles as heartache and family drama put their relationships to the test.

2. Missing: The Lucie Blackman Case

In July 2000, 21-year-old former flight attendant Lucie Blackman went missing in Tokyo. Her disappearance sparked an international investigation and a massive search effort before her dismembered remains were discovered in a remote cave in February 2021.


Lucie Blackman was buried in a shallow grave beneath a bathtub in Kanagawa, about 30 miles south of Tokyo.


Available on Netflix on Jul 26, the documentary will shed light on the investigation into Lucie’s death and how it eventually led to the arrest and trial of Joji Obara — a serial rapist and murderer.

3. The Lady of Silence: The Mataviejitas Murders

Between 1998 and 2005, a serial killer targeted elderly women who lived alone in Mexico City,  killing nearly 50 of them.

The perpetrator, Juana Barraza, gained the trust of her victims by posing as a government official before attacking and brutally murdering them, often by using a blunt object. Her nickname “La Mataviejitas” translates to “Old Lady Killer” in English.

The Lady of Silence: The Mataviejitas Murders will delve into the dark chapter of Mexico’s history which serves as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by serial killers. The documentary will be released on Jul 27.

4. Bleach: Zanpakutō: The Alternate Tale

Based on Tite Kubo’s Bleach manga series, the 13th season places emphasis on an alternative set of events.

In the “Bleach” storyline, Zanpakutō are the primary weapons used by Soul Reapers, spiritual beings who protect the living world from malevolent spirits known as Hollows. Each Soul Reaper has a unique Zanpakutō, which is a manifestation of their spirit and power.

Available on Jul 1, Bleach: Zanpakutō is an anime-only storyline that deviates from the original manga. The arc introduces an original story centred around the Zanpakutō spirits, giving them a more prominent role and delving into their pasts and relationships with their Soul Reaper partners.

5. The Lincoln Lawyer: Season 2

The Lincoln Lawyer, based on Michael Connelly’s novel, revolves around Mickey Haller, a criminal-defence lawyer and a recovering addict who operates out of his Lincoln Town car.

While he only represents low-end criminals, he will soon be asked to defend a wealthy realtor who is accused of assaulting a prostitute. When Haller scrutinises the evidence against him, he discovers that the case in hand may be linked to an old case of his.
