As we anxiously await the return of Stranger Things in October, Netflix is keeping us busy with enough new releases in TV and movies to hold us over. Among them are a trip down memory lane with Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray's fairy-tale romance in A Cinderella Story, the entire Matrix trilogy, The Addams Family *snap snap*, and a full-blown homage to the Beatles in I Am Sam.

TV die-hards can prepare to laugh along with a revival of one of the best teen comedies, Netflix's first season of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. And speaking of teen classics, don't forget to hit play on 10 Things I Hate About You before it song-and-dances its way out of streaming lists on August 1.
