Fear Street Part Two: 1978 (new on Netflix)

Part two of the three-film Fear Street series drops today. Set in 1978, Fear Street Part Two: 1978 is designed as a pretty obvious homage to the Friday the 13th franchise. Also premiering today is the fourth and final season of Atypical, the show about an autistic teenager starring Keir Gilchrist, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Michael Rapaport. Season 3 of romantic drama Virgin River also premieres today alongside season two of the German-language series Biohackers and the French superhero comedy How I Became a Superhero starring Pio Marmai and Benoit Poelvoorde.

Next week, Netflix subscribers can stream Gunpowder Milkshake (July 14), an overdriven, candy-coloured action movie about a sisterhood of professional assassins (played by Karen Gillan, Angela Bassett, Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh and Carla Gugino) who set out to exact revenge on a crime lord played by Paul Giamatti. On July 15 you can stream season 2 of the Mindy Kaling-created Never Have I Ever, about the trials and tribulations of an Indian-American teenager. Film highlights include It Chapter Two (July 11), The Final Girls and Top Gun (both July 15).
