The Everygirl’s Streaming Guide: The New Shows and Movies We’ll Be Watching This Month

Want to stay in and watch what’s new? Me too. I used to get excited to get dressed up and stay out late, but I won’t lie to you: Those days are over. Instead, watching what is new on streaming is my idea of a good time. Heck, I mark release dates in my calendar sometimes. What can I say? I love being a homebody.

With all of the streaming services out now, it can be hard to keep up with what to watch and where to watch it, but this month, the lineups are so good that you’re going to want to make sure that you have access to all of the platforms (or at least your friend’s passwords to some). These shows and movies are about to be the topic of conversation in The Everygirl’s #watercooler Slack channel, and I’ll be damned if I miss out on that.

Cancel your plans and get comfortable because it’s time to press “play.” Without further ado, here are some of the most anticipated shows and movies that are new on streaming this month.
