What’s Coming to Netflix This Week (August 12th – August 18th)

Published on EST

This week sees a great selection of new titles coming to Netflix in the United States with a particularly good week for new series with both Netflix Originals and other pickups. Here’s a look at what’s coming to Netflix between August 12th and August 18th.

As always, we’ll take you through some highlights of what you have to look forward to and move onto the full list.

Knightfall (Season 2)

Netflix Release Date: Tuesday, August 13th

If you love The Last Kingdom and can’t wait for season 4, Knightfall maybe your quick fix. Starring Mark Hammil (yes, Luke Skywalker himself) and Tom Cullen, this series is about the final days of the Knights Templar during the 14th century.

It’s a thrilling ride and although the reviews remain mixed going into season 2, it’s certainly grown a dedicated audience since its initial release 2 years ago.

The 100 (Season 6)

Netflix Release Date: Wednesday, August 14th

The CW’s best sci-fi series arrives on Netflix this week for season 6 just a week after its season finale. The series has been renewed for season 7 which is also set to be the last.

The 100 is about a group of kids sent down to the Earth surface to see if it’s habitable for life again.

Cannon Busters (Season 1) Netflix Original

Netflix Release Date: Thursday, August 15th

With multiple delays, we’ve spent a long time waiting for the anime series from Lesean Thomas but it’s finally here. Adapting the manga series of the same name, we follow a crew of travelers who are traversing the world of Gearbolt.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus (2019)

Netflix Release Date: Friday, August 16th

Hot on the heels of Rocko’s Modern Life that arrived last week, Netflix has their second Nick pickup this week. This week, we’re returning to another 90s classic character in the form of Invader Zim. Like Rocko, he’s been on hiatus and waiting for his leaders to return to earth with him. After losing patience, he takes matters into his own hands.
