Based on a 2006 thriller novel of the same name written by Vikram Chandra, Sacred Games is an action-packed series revolving around a Mumbai cop who becomes entangled in the web of crimes by a powerful crime lord. As both of them play cat and mouse, they both delve deeper and deeper into a game that becomes much bigger than anything they’ve ever bargained for. Available on Netflix starting July 6.
Dark Tourist, not to be confused with a 2013 thriller film, is a documentary series of places you’ll never find in city guides anywhere. Journalist David Farrier explores off-the-beaten-paths to showcase unfamiliar, undiscovered, and unusual tourist spots around the world — from a nuclear lake to a haunted forest. Available on Netflix starting July 20.
Adding to the list of shows on Netflix that focuses on competitive dessert making is this new, fast-paced baking competition that challenges brilliant bakers to create the most amazing and delicious sweet treats before they run out of time. The competition will be judged by two world-class pastry chefs: Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo. Available on Netflix starting July 13.
A lot of shows are also making a comeback this month with new seasons! Orange is the New Black: Season 6 (July 27) will be showing the aftermath of Season 5’s post-riot cliffhanger, while Terrace House: Opening New Doors Part 3 (July 31) will pick up where it left off with the members making plans for Valentine’s Day.
We’ll also see all second seasons of Drug Lords (July 10), a documentary about history’s most notorious drug cartels and kingpins, culinary travel show Somebody Feed Phil (July 6), and Anne with an E (July 6), an adaptation of popular novel Anne of Green Gables.
