As we usher in the last full month of summer this weekend, there may be a flooding sense of urgency to enjoy the heat for as long as we have it. But this mercurial weather is not making it easy! Thank heavens we can always rely on our favorite streaming platforms to help us relax and enjoy the off-time, and this weekend is no exception. Whether you’re sifting through your options on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or all of the above, the freshest titles new on streaming are the perfect sources to tap for your entertaining weekend. And don’t worry about the enormity of all the choices now in front of you, because we here at Decider are happy to do the heavy lifting and help you figure out what to watch this weekend and where to stream it.

New Movies and Shows to Stream This Weekend: Outer Banks Season 2, The Pursuit of Love and Jungle Cruise

Since this weekend marks the start of a new month, this streaming batch is set to be a doozy, folks. On Netflix, you can finally catch up with John B and the rest of the treasure-seeking Pogues in Outer Banks Season 2, while even more adventure awaits with Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt in the new Disney+ film, Jungle Cruise. But if you are looking for a more emotional journey rather than a physical one, check out The Pursuit of Love on Amazon Prime Video. But those are just the options coming out this Friday! Sunday’s new movies and shows drop is going to keep us occupied all weekend long, so let’s get started with the highlights and the full lineups we’ve got listed below:

New on Netflix July 30: Outer Banks Season 2

We may be entering the last leg of summer, but the sun, surf, sand and adventure are not going anywhere in now that Outer Banks Season 2 is new on Netflix this weekend. Set on the titular North Carolina coast, this YA adventure series centers on John B, a teen who ropes his group of friends into a massive hunt to track down the treasure that cost John B’s father his life. But in Season 2, John B and Sarah have left the rest of the Pogues behind, setting off on their own hunt for the elusive treasure. But the rest of the gang is not going to sit idly by, so expect many more crazy action sequences, wild goose chases and steamy makeout sessions in one of the top shows new on Netflix this month.

New on Amazon Prime Video July 30: The Pursuit of Love

New on Amazon Prime Video is The Pursuit of Love, a wonderfully romantic British series about, well, just what the title suggests! Based on the 1945 Nancy Mitford novel of the same name, this three-episode period drama centers on two wild-hearted cousins (Lily James and Emily Beecham) who desire very different — but also similar — things in life: passionate romantic love for one, and a sense of family and belonging for another. As the two navigate love and all the trappings that come with it while they come of age, they rely on their bond to maintain strength and support. Written and directed by Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom, Mary Poppins Returns), The Pursuit of Love is the perfect binge-watch if you are in the mood for a classic coming-of-age romance this weekend.

New on Disney+ July 30: Jungle Cruise

Have you ever sat aboard one of the dinky boats on the Disney theme park attraction Jungle Cruise and wondered, ‘why is this ride even here?’ Well, this weekend we get to finally find out! Grab your life vests and hop on board, because Jungle Cruise is new on Disney+ this weekend. In this Disney+ original adventure film, Emily Blunt plays Dr. Lily Houghton, a scientist who enlists the help of a wisecracking riverboat captain (Dwayne Johnson) to transport her and her brother (Jack Whitehall) through the Amazon in hopes of finding the legendary tree of life — a scientific discovery that would change the world of modern medicine. But the journey is not a simple one (obviously), and the three face dangerous wild animals, an unpredictable environment and a competing German expedition to find the tree first. If you are looking for a ridiculously fun romp this weekend, Jungle Cruise is it.
