If the lovely weather has put a damper on your weekend plans and our list of great ways to cool down this summer hasn't inspired you (sorry), here's a list of five great things to watch on Netflix this weekend. 

Orange Is The New Black

Netflix Original - Orange is the New Black

Minor spoilers ahead: Following the riot at the end of season five, the ladies find themselves in completely new surroundings for the new season. The drama follows their adjustment to life in a new place and – *GASP* – different coloured jumpsuits. The entire season will be on Netflix on Saturday, July 28. 

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee: Freshly Brewed

Stand Up comedy on Netflix - Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee: Freshly Brewed

Jerry Seinfeld’s comedians/wacky-dudes-hanging-out show has been on Netflix for a while, but never made by them - it was initially made for digital network Crackle before being acquired by the streaming platform beginning with this season that features a stellar lineup including Kate McKinnon and Dave Chappelle.

Extinction

Netflix Original - Extinction

An original sci-fi movie starring Lizzy Caplan, Michael Peña and Luke Cage’s Michael Colter, Extinction was initially going to be a big-screen Universal release before they scratched it from their schedule. That might not sound too promising, but the last film that happened to was Annihilation, which was fantastic.

Suits

Some of the cast of Suits haven't returning for the show's 8th season.  Patrick J Adams wanted to move on to bigger things, and Meghan Markle… wait, don’t tell us. There was something about her in the news the other day, right? She did something or other. Can’t remember. It can’t have been very important. Meanwhile, the legal show has tried to make up for it by introducing a new character played by The Ugly Truth star Katherine Heigl.

GODZILLA City on the Edge of Battle

The sequel to GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, pits humans and robots against the biggest Godzilla ever seen in an interplanetary struggle for survival. The film starts Mamoru Miyano and Kana Hanazawa.
