The Full Schedule & List of Movies and TV Shows on Netflix in August
The Best Movies and TV Shows on Netflix Coming in August

Here ar the major releases coming on Netflix in August, 2021:

Netflix in August starts off strong with the complete series of both 30 Rock and Friday Night Lights arriving on the platform. That also means an influx of Tim Riggins appreciation posts and Twitter discourse about Tina Fey is on the way.

The rest of August on Netflix contains a bit of something for everyone. On the reality/docuseries front, Paris Hilton brings her culinary stylings to Netflix via Cooking With Paris (August 4), and Marie Kondo comes for your clutter in her new series, Sparking Joy (August 31). There’s even a new Caitlyn Jenner documentary, likely timed to her controversial gubernatorial run in California. Gen Z can look forward to the third and final Kissing Booth movie (August 11) and the film debut of TikTok star Addison Rae in the She’s All That re-imagining, creatively titled He’s All That (August 27).

A new documentary about beloved painter Bob Ross is also on the way, with an intriguing title we definitely did not see coming: Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed.

Netflix is also dropping UNTOLD, a five-part documentary series about iconic and controversial sports moments, focusing on athletes including Caitlyn Jenner and boxer Christy Martin.

On the movie side, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is on the way, as well as My Girl, Catch Me If You Can and Seabiscuit.

Pray Away (August 3)

Executive produced by Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum, Pray Away is a documentary earning early Oscars buzz after premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival. It features former advocates of the anti-LGBTQ movement and centers on Exodus International, a Christian conversion camp founded in the 1970s.

Many of those who once preached the “pray away” method have since repudiated the practice of conversion therapy and come out as gay themselves. The doc explores their reckoning with the past and fight to ban all conversion therapy.

30 Rock Seasons 1–7 (August 1)

Netflix is betting that there still ain’t no party like a Liz Lemon party. All 138 episodes of the hit NBC sitcom are hitting the streaming platform, joining the ranks of Peacock and Hulu. Consider this an opportunity to re-fall in love with Jane Krakowski’s Jenna and reevaluate your favorite Tracey Morgan improv moments. Let it also be a reminder of what a workplace comedy can be at its best and most unpredictable.

The Chair (August 20)

Where Sandra Oh leads, we will follow. After memorable performances on Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve, Oh stars as Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim—who has just been named Chair of the English department at the prestigious (if floundering) Pembroke University. She’s joined in her ill-fated endeavor to revive the department by Jay Duplass, Holland Taylor, and David Morse. Created by Amanda Peet and produced by Game of Thrones creators David Benioff (Peet’s husband) and D.B. Weiss, consider this your next must-watch prestige drama.

He’s All That (August 27)

While she may have lost her gig as UFC host, TikTok influencer Addison Rae is still set to make her big screen debut with the gender-swapped remake of 1999’s She’s All That. She’s joined by the OG teen comedy’s star Rachael Leigh Cook as the mother of her character. (It’s unclear if Cook is reprising her role as the bespectacled wallflower Laney.) If that’s not enough to inspire a guilty-pleasure viewing, perhaps Kourtney Kardashian’s confirmed cameo will.
