40+ New Releases on Netflix: August 1st, 2020

new on netflix usa august 1st 2020

The first of the month always brings with it plenty of brand new releases and today is no different although as we’ll discuss, it’s not as big a haul as other first of the months. Here’s what’s new on Netflix in the United States for August 1st, 2020.

41 new titles may seem low when on most first of the months you can usually expect between 60 and 100 new titles dropping on the service. However, it’s similar to last year’s haul and remember, today is a Saturday which may have an effect too.

August 1st, 2019 yielded 45 new titles whereas the year before that, 67. This could be emblematic of Netflix’s decreasing reliance (or unavailability of a licensed library).

Among the highlights for today’s new releases is a selection of titles picked out by Strong Black Lead including all six seasons of the UPN sitcom, Moesha.
