Stranger Things (Season 3)

Release date:  Thursday, July 4, 2019

Many fans of Stranger Things will be relieved to know that the show isn’t cancelled! Yay! The kids from Hawkins, Indiana, will be back on Netflix on July 4, 2019, and will face yet another threat from the nightmare dimension known as the Upside Down. It’s clear that the Stranger Things kids are growing up, but the terrors of the Upside Down haven’t gone away. The new season will have eight episodes, and will also see the return of one of season two’s monsters with most of the action taking place at a new local mall. It apparently is also one of the grossest and brutal season yet.

Seasons 1 and 2 are currently still available to watch on Netflix.

Working Moms (Season 2)

Release date: Thursday, July 25, 2019

The second and third season of this Canadian sitcom have already aired in Canada but season two is dropping on Netflix on July 25. If you’re a mom who works as well, Working Moms is probably something you should catch on Netflix if you haven’t already. The show’s producer, Catherine Reitman who plays Kate Foster on the series, said that she wanted to offer up a more honest portrayal of motherhood on TV – and it’s safe to say that her idea worked as the show has mothers hooked. The show follows four moms in a mommy group as they juggle toddlers, aging, work-life balance and tough relationship issues.

Season 1 is currently still available to watch on Netflix.
