How August came upon us so quickly when time no longer has any meaning is beyond human comprehension, but what we do know is this: We need a steady supply of new streaming content, and Netflix is a benevolent streaming deity that graciously provides. August’s arrivals have, uh, arrived, with new seasons of The Rain, Lucifer, 3%, and Aggretsuko—featuring everyone’s favorite emotional avatar: a rage-fueled red panda who despises her boring office job and loves death metal and karaoke. There are plenty of movies hitting Netflix in August, too, including the documentaries Immigration Nation, wellness industry exposé (Un)Well, and Rising Phoenix (about the Paralympic Games), and several Netflix Original films. Notable titles include Project Power, starring Jamie Foxx and directed by Paranormal Activity 3 duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman; and dance drama Work It, starring Sabrina Carpenter. Oh, and Rob Schneider has a new comedy special, which shouldn’t be problematic in the slightest.


As always, several titles will be leaving Netflix in August, including a few that got a nice bump from all the people who wanted more horny content after watching the controversial 365 Days: say goodbye to Blue Is The Warmest Color and Gaspar Noé’s Love. Other favorites expiring in August: Clueless, the Bad Boys movies, Candyman, Groundhog Day, and Observe And Report.
