35 best new Netflix movies and shows coming in August 2020 – Netflix Life


After a jam-packed introduction to summer on Netflix, the number of original series premieres is beginning to slow down. Although August features a lighter lineup of new Netflix movies and shows, theres still plenty of binge-worthy content coming our way this month to keep us occupied during the summer doldrums.

From a handful of new documentaries to the highly anticipated season of a fan-favorite series, Netflix will keep us entertained in August.

Obviously, the months marquee new release is Lucifer season 5, part 1, which fans have been waiting for since last spring. The first half of the super-sized fifth season precedes the forthcoming final season, but its too soon to dwell on endings when there are so many beginnings coming to Netflix. Teenage Bounty Hunters and Hoops are two of the months biggest original series premieres, along with original movies All Together Now, Work It and Project Power.
