The weather isn’t the only thing (finally) heating up. Just when we thought our summer schedule couldn’t get any more red-hot (read: lazy beach days, sunny patio sessions and al fresco brunch dates), Netflix comes through with new episodes of our fave shows. So, slather on the SPF and start streaming everything coming (like brand new seasons of Stranger Things, Queer Eye and Orange Is the New Black) and going (like holiday classic The Holiday) to Netflix Canada this July.
