It’s time for yet another look ahead at what’s coming to Netflix. Below, we’ll be walking you through a first but not quite complete look at what’s heading to Netflix in the US throughout the month of August 2021.
Want to dive into the Netflix Originals a bit deeper? We’ve got a full preview for those separately. Most of the Netflix Originals will release on Netflix globally with a few exceptions.
For those unfamiliar with how our previews work, here’s a quick intro. We typically learn of titles throughout the prior months and will keep this list updated, every few days usually. Towards the end of July 2021, we’ll get an expanded list from Netflix themselves. Then, throughout August 2021, there’ll be unannounced titles scheduled which we’ll also include here.
