Here we’re unloading the best that is coming to Amazon Prime Video in July 2021, from new series and documentaries to original films and old-school flicks. Here’s what’s new on Amazon Prime Video in July 2021.
It’s 2021 – the war of streaming services wages on. Celebrities bank on big-budget blockbusters, while reality stars get infinitely more shredded in hopes of pushing your self-esteem to new lows, such is life. But if you’re caught up in the content overload, looking for new shows to stream, you’ve come to the right place.

1: The Tomorrow War
The big dog release for July 2021, Amazon Prime Video’s The Tomorrow War is part Terminator, part Edge of Tomorrow but 100% ridiculous. A group of time travelers arrives from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: Thirty years in the future mankind is losing a global war against a deadly alien species.
According to the recent additions, the only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. Of course, instead of going for actual soldiers, they opt for a bunch of random dudes, like a high school teacher and family man Dan Forester (Chris Pratt). Things get even weirder when he teams up with a brilliant scientist and his estranged father (J.K. Simmons). We’ll see how this one plays out.
Release Date: 2 July 2021
Riverdale lead and the world’s best-looking Kiwi, KJ Apa stars in this awkwardly poignant film. Set in 2024 while a pandemic ravages the world and its cities (sound familiar?), Songbird centers on a handful of people navigating society’s toughest obstacles. Here, we’re talking disease, martial law, quarantine, and vigilantes.
Release Date: 15 July 2021
Ok, this looks cool. Amazon Prime Original Jolt tells the story of Lindym a beautiful, sardonically-funny woman with a painful secret. Due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device. Unable to find love and connection in a world that fears her bizarre condition, she finally trusts a man long enough to fall in love, only to find him murdered the next day. Her response? A revenge-filled mission to find his killer, coupled with the added pressure of being the prime suspect. Badass.

Best New Series on Amazon Prime Video
1: 4 Blocks
The German drama series that follows the Hamady crime family has finally made its way to Amazon Prime Video. Brutal, bloody and deeply disturbing, 4 Blocks is an urban tale of redemption. When Berlin Toni, the man in charge of dealing with Arabic gangs begins to question if leaving his old life behind is best for his family, no surprises emerge. Definitely worth a watch.
Release Date: 1 July 2021
2: Luxe Listings Sydney
The Australian incarnation of Selling Sunset officially lands on our screens this month, finally revealing to the rest of the world how entitled Sydney-siders really are. Showing off the most expensive and extravagant real estate in the world, Luxe Listings Sydney provides a glimpse inside Sydney’s ‘Billionaire’s Row. And while renowned Sydney real estate agents Gavin Rubinstein and D’Leanne Lewis, along with esteemed buyer’s agent Simon Cohen headline the show, there’s no shortage of drama. Get ready for bitchy comments, harbour views and suits without socks in this rare glimpse into Sydney’s real estate elites.
Release Date: 9 July 2021
3: The Magicians
These magicians definitely aren’t pulling rabbits out of their hat. After being recruited to a secretive academy, a group of students discover that the magic they read about as children is very real and far more dangerous than they ever imagined.
Release Date: 9 July 2021
4: Making the Cut Season 2
The search for the next great global fashion brand continues. Everyone’s favourite ex-supermodel Heidi Klum joins all-time legend Tim Gunn for the second season of a show we only just found out existed. Not to be outdone, however, Making the Cut also adds judges the stunning Winnie Harlow and fashion pop icon and Moschino Creative Director Jeremy Scott to the mix. While it might not sound like your cup of tea, the backdrop of the ongoing pandemic does add an interesting dynamic. The winner of the series will receive $1 million to invest in their business, the opportunity to sell a collection in Amazon Fashion’s store, and a mentorship with Amazon Fashion.
Release Date: 16 July 2021
5: The Pursuit of Love
Unsurprisingly, this is a story of love and friendship. An adaptation of Nancy Mitford’s novel, The Pursuit of Love is set in Europe between the two World Wars and follows Linda Radlett and her best friend and cousin Fanny Logan. On a quest to find the ultimate husband, the two are separated in spirit, as social and political divisions split the nation. Might be a tear-jerker.
