What’s Coming to Netflix in August 2018

Netflix has big end-of-summer plans for original content. August 2018 will see the returns of eight original series from the streaming giant, as well as the premieres of several original films.

Ozark,” “Voltron: Legendary Defender,” and “The Investigator: A British Crime Story” are among the service’s shows slated to debut new seasons next month, while “Like Father,” starring Kristen Bell and Seth Rogen, and “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society,” starring Lily James, are some of Netflix’s new films set to launch. Additionally, August will introduce various original freshman series, including Debby Ryan’s controversial black comedy “Insatiable.”

The final month of summer will also bring a wealth of acquisitions to the site in the form of popular films, franchises, and TV shows. Inaugural titles in the “Lord of the Rings” and Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” franchises are a couple of the incoming films, while the fifth season of The CW’s “The Originals,” the second season of NBC’s “The Good Place,” and more will roll in for TV.
