Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar


Here it is, slightly delayed, but it’s here. Your official list of titles heading to Netflix in the US through August 2015. As always, check back to What’s on Netflix on a daily basis as this title list will surely grow with the daily additions. If you’re looking only for the Netflix Originals heading to Netflix in August 2015 then you might want to check out the post we did last week. Meanwhile, onwards with August’s new additions.

August 2015 Highlights

TV Series


This month’s new TV series aren’t the best but there’s a few treats hidden here. The first of our picks is Doctor Who, season 8 which see’s Peter Capaldi takeover the role of the Doctor from Matt Smith. This will be the forth reincarnation of the doctor since the new set of seasons began and he had very big shoes to fill. Luckily, his first season was brilliant as he battled against familiar and new enemies. You can watch season 8 of Doctor Who on Netflix US from August the 8th.

Once Upon A Time will also be getting a season update towards the end of the month on August the 28th. In case you’re not familiar with this series then allow us to fill you in with the basic details. Imagine every old Disney movie in the real world. If that concept isn’t enough for you then you’re probably not going to want to watch it. It’s a great series full of special effects, great use of the source material and a fantastic but most importantly believable cast too.



Firing it’s way onto Netflix on the first of the month is the fantastic and tense action movie, The Hurt Locker. Starring two of the Avenger stars Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie it follows a three-man bomb squad in the Iraq War and their tense and often frustrating missions during that time.

Our other movie highlight coming up in August is Alex of Venice. The chances are you’ve probably never heard of this movie as it was mostly snubbed by the media last year, but it’s well worth a watch. After Alex is suddenly dumped by her stay at home husband she’s been forced to reinvent herself. Juggling her child and getting back into the dating world is a bit out of Alex’s control and it’s her battle to make it all happen.
