Netflix UK New Releases – August 2016

Netflix UK will be getting some massive shows throughout August including some brand new Original content plus the updating of much loved and much requested content. As always, we’re going to pick out some of the highlights of the things that definitely should be in your queue in August 2016.

Let’s kick off with the updates first. The brilliant second season of Gotham will be arriving mid-month which continues the story of how Bruce Wayne became to be. It’s rich in Batman history and while it’s still nowhere near as good as its DC cousins in the form of The Flash and Arrow, it’s a DC comic fan must watch and even if you aren’t, there’s plenty of action for this to be on your list.

For fans of the vampire series The Originals and even the show it’s based off of, The Vampire Diaries will be thrilled to learn that the third season of the show will be available on Netflix UK throughout the month of August too. We’ll also see the continued releases of brand new episodes weekly of Power and Scream.

A quieter month than normal on the movie front with only two Dreamworks movies that will be arriving in the middle of the month coming in the form of Over the Hedge and Megamind giving us anything to be excited about.

We won’t cover the originals here but we’ve actually done an in-depth preview of all the Netflix Original content coming in August 2016.
