This week’s list of prominent Netflix Streaming releases kicks off today with season 3 of the AMC drama “Hell On Wheels,” a show that has remained on the air thanks to a small-but-devoted fanbase, which has allowed the Anson Mount-starring Western series to keep being renewed (with season 4 around the corner) despite a Saturday night time slot. Mount stars as former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannon, who seeks his wife's killer as Reconstruction-era America rebuilds.

Also arriving today is “McCanick”, a drama which holds the dubious distinction of being the final role of former “Glee” star Cory Monteith. The film also stars David Morse, Mike Vogel and Ciaran Hinds.

July 20 brings a reissued version of a 1971 documentary.The film is called “Weekend of a Champion,” and is a filmed document of then-current Formula One racing champion Jackie Stewart, as he prepares for the Monaco Grand Prix. The film was made by the famous (and infamous) director Roman Polanski, who followed Stewart for three days.. This new version also includes an interview of Stewart and Polanski 40 years later.

Monday July 22 brings the 2011 film “Peace Love & Misunderstanding,” featuring a cast filled with familiar faces: Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chace Crawford, Elizabeth Olsen, Rosanna Arquette, Kyle MacLachlan, and Katharine McPhee. Also arriving on Netflix that same day is “The Samaritan” a 2012 crime drama starring Samuel L. Jackson and Luke Kirby.

July 24 brings season 4 of the popular Canadian supernatural drama series “Lost Girl.” The series stars Anna Silk as Bo, who discovers she's a succubus who sustains herself by feeding on the sexual energy of humans, Bo sets out on a journey to understand herself and her kind -- and to help people she encounters on her travels.
