What’s Coming to Netflix in August 2019

Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar

Welcome to your first look at what’s coming to Netflix in August 2019 in the United States. It’s going to be a busy month full of Netflix Originals and licensed content on the way to Netflix as the summer begins to wind down. 

On August 1st, it’s shaping up to be a nice month for new TV series with both The Sinner and Heartland returning for new seasons. We’ll also be getting two movies from Warner which are Clash of the Titans and Jupiter Ascending.

Licensed content is looking light in August as the vast majority of content is made up of Netflix Original projects. You have tentpole additions every Friday with plenty of foreign titles and smaller projects mixed in.

This month, because most titles will be unknown, we’ve gone through all the titles to give you a description of what each title is about. Let us know in the comments if you like the format.

Netflix has provided a juicy sizzle reel of what we can expect throughout August 2019 on Netflix US too.

Note: This doesn’t represent the full list of new releases as Netflix always gets new titles added daily not included in the monthly previews. We’ll be updating this post weekly to reflect changes in the lineup.
