A big week of new releases awaits Netflix in the United States and some huge global Netflix releases too. Netflix’s big new release of The Sandman is highly anticipated but there are also lots of new movies, including (we hope) the big new Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland.

Want to see what else is set to hit Netflix throughout the month of August? We’ve got you covered as we just updated our guide to the new movies and shows coming throughout the month.

To keep up with all the new releases throughout the week, keep it locked on our new on Netflix hub.

What to Watch on Netflix This Week

The Sandman (Season 1)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Often deemed impossible to adapt, Netflix is about to release its big new Warner Bros. Television production based on the Neil Gaiman comic series.

Here’s what we can expect from the new series:

“The story of Dream, who wakes from a captive slumber of 105 years and sets out to restore the kingdom of the Dreaming, which has fallen into chaos in his absence.”

No reviews are available for this series just yet (review embargo is up on Friday – never a good sign) but with Gaiman’s blessing and a solid cast, we’re still keeping our hopes high for this new DC series.

Uncharted (2022)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

After a delay and now being bought forward, Uncharted should be swinging onto Netflix this Friday according to an updated release date for the movie, which was supposed to be released in July.

Starring Mark Wahlberg and Tom Holland, the Sony movie adapts the game and sees Nathan Drake and Sully embarking on a globetrotting adventure to find an untold fortune.

Riverdale (Season 6)

Coming to Netflix: Sunday

Riverdale Season 6 – Picture: The CW

Love it or hate it, Riverdale continues to be one of the biggest shows on The CW and it wraps up its sixth season on the day of publishing. It’s been a bumper season with it returning to 22 episodes and this season also notably featured a Netflix character (ish) in the form of Sabrina Spellman.

Netflix outside the US has been streaming season 6 of Riverdale weekly but the US will get all 22 episodes at once come the end of the week.
