Guys, August is here.
If that fact just blows your mind, wait until you see the lineup Netflix is giving subscribers this month. The second season of Mindhunter, more seasons of GLOW and Dear White People, a Tiffany Haddish comedy series, a Dark Crystal animated revival, and that’s just a handful of original content landing on the streaming platform soon. Blockbusters, dramas, comedies, and the latest seasons of TV’s biggest hits are also making their way to Netflix this month, so forget making any plans that don’t include the couch and a big-screen TV.
Here’s everything coming to (and leaving) Netflix in August.
MINDHUNTER: Season 2 (Netflix series streaming 8/16)
David Fincher returns to direct the second season of this true-crime series which also sees stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany step back into the shoes of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench as they investigate the Atlanta Child Murders of the early 80s. The investigation into the killing spree — which saw 28 members of the African-American community dead when it was over — has been reopened recently, which makes the launch of season two all the more fascinating. Fans will also get a chance to see Charles Manson sit across the table from Ford and Tench, as the two study the infamous cult leader to help solve the Atlanta case.
Dear White People: Volume 3 (Netflix series streaming 8/2)
The third season of Dear White People will see the students of Winchester embracing change and new challenges as The Order of X is explored and new characters come on board. While Reggie continues to rebel against his carefully cultivated identity as a friendly activist, the rest of the group explores new romances and confronts old hurts.
