The glorious ladies of wrestling are back for their third season and this year, they’re headed to Vegas. The comedy-drama comes from the same creator as Orange is the New Black and continues to be an underrated hit of the Netflix Original lineup.

Netflix Release Date: August 9th

In The Shadow Of The Moon Netflix

Jim Mickle will be directing this political thriller coming to Netflix in August with some big stars involved such as Michael C. Hall and Boyd Holbrook.

It’s taken an excruciating amount of time for Netflix to lineup Cannon Busters after it slipped its last date. The Kickstarter project turned Netflix Original show by LeSean Thomas will finally be landing midway through August.
