As summer vacation rolls in, parents will be looking for more ways to keep their kids entertained. On days when it’s too hot or rainy to play outside, kids might tune to Netflix to find something to watch. Luckily, the streamer is adding new content to their catalog next month that is sure to keep your little ones entertained through the summer. Here’s a breakdown of all the family shows coming to Netflix in July.
One of the greatest things about Netflix is that is has some of the best kids content around, including original series and a variety of shows from other networks. The streamer offers Disney series including Sofia the First, Bunk’D, and Liz & Maddie, as well as its own popular shows like Spirit Riding Free, Malibu Rescue, and The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants.
While the streamer has all the kids content you could ask for, they also have a great selection of family friendly TV. There are very few shows that I can truly enjoy with my kids, but thanks to Netflix, my family can get together to watch shows like Lost In Space and A Series of Unfortunate Events without getting bored.
Here’s a list of the new shows you can look forward to watching as a family.
