Channing Tatum plays a Secret Service agent who has to protect the President of the United States (Jamie Foxx) when the White House comes under siege by a group of antagonistic outsiders. This was one of the better political thrillers of the early 2010s, and it also came at a time when Tatum was one of the Hollywood A-listers everyone wanted to see. It holds up well in 2023 and will be appearing on Netflix starting on July 1.

Quarterback (2023)

1 Season

The one area where streaming services take a backseat to cable providers is live sports (though that is rapidly changing). Quarterback isn’t exactly live sports, but it is a docu-series focusing on a few QBs of the  2022 NFL season: Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota. The show will give access to on-the-field sights and sounds from the players, who all were generous with their time and willingness to give a peak into their careers in new ways. The show will premiere on July 12, right before NFL training camp picks up.

Lauren Schmidt Hissrich
Watch on Netflix

The Witcher is about to enter a state of change when Henry Cavill leaves and Liam Hemsworth takes over as the heroic Geralt. This final set of episodes with Cavill is sure to impress with the same set of monsters and grandeur the video game adaptation has become known for. The second volume of season three will premiere on July 27.

BASTARD‼ -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy- (2022)

BASTARD‼ -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-
2 Seasons
Animation, Action & Adventure, Sci-Fi & Fantasy

While Hulu is known for having a lot of anime on their service, Netflix also has its fair share of Japanese animation. BASTARD!! – Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy returns with more sinister fun, witchcraft, and fantastical elements for fans of the first season to enjoy. This new batch of episodes will come out on the last day of the month, July 31.

Ranked: The best Taylor Sheridan movies and TV shows
What are the best Taylor Sheridan movies and TV shows?
Kevin Costner as John Dutton in Yellowstone.

Whether you're a fan of Taylor Sheridan movies or Taylor Sheridan TV shows, there's no denying that the co-creator of the hit series Yellowstone is one of the most prolific screenwriters in Hollywood. Pending renewals, Sheridan is the man behind five ongoing television series, and he still manages to find the time to write an occasional Oscar-nominated movie script.

To celebrate Sheridan's remarkable achievements in the industry, we're taking a look back at all of the Taylor Sheridan movies and TV shows to date and ranking them from worst to first. Note that only films or TV series that Sheridan wrote or directed are included on this list, with the exception of Vile, a low-budget horror movie that Sheridan has essentially disowned. Since that movie was also an outlier to everything that Sheridan worked on afterward, it was an easy cut to make.

Is Netflix’s Black Rabbit the next Succession?
Will Black Rabbit be your next favorite binge?
Jason Bateman in Ozark.

While it may not have been the most watched show of the past five years, Succession was a major topic of conversation for basically its entire run on the air. The series, which told the story of the siblings of a media tycoon as they competed for control of his empire, was the kind of organic phenomenon that can be hard to predict. It didn't have any major stars, but its potent combination of excellent dramatic writing and brilliant comedy made it hard for many to resist.

Succession chose to bow out at exactly the right time, but following its departure in 2023, many fans have felt the show's absence. Now, Netflix may be getting ready to debut its answer to Succession, Black Rabbit, but we'll have to wait and see whether the series can live up to the quality of Succession.
Black Rabbit and Succession have very similar premises
