It’s time for another look into the future on Netflix. Below we’ll take you through a first, but not entirely complete, look at Netflix in the US in August 2021.
Do you want to dive a little deeper into the Netflix originals? We have full previews for this one separately. Most Netflix originals, with a few exceptions, are published worldwide on Netflix.
For those unfamiliar with how our previews work, here’s a quick introduction. We typically hear about titles in the past few months and will typically keep this list updated every few days. Towards the end of July 2021, we will receive an expanded list from Netflix itself. Unannounced titles are planned for August 2021, which we will also include here.
