Netflix: New Releases in August 2021

Take a look at the movies and TV shows that will hit the streaming service next month.

The Witcher

The streamer is set to launch the anticipated dark fantasy The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

Produced by The Witcher executive producer and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, the animated spin-off film serves as an origins story for Geralt’s mentor and fellow witcher Vesemir.

Beckett

In the middle of August, John David Washington’s new thriller Beckett, which also stars Tomb Raider and The Green Knight actress Alicia Vikander, will bow.

The film follows an American vacationing in Greece (Washington) who must fight his way to the U.S. embassy to clear his name after becoming the target of a manhunt and ensnared in a dangerous political conspiracy following a devastating accident.

Two young adult films will also hit Netflix in August, including the contemporary and gender-swapped She’s All That remake, He’s All That, which features real-life influencer Addison Rae as an on-screen teen influencer who attempts to turn a high school misfit, played by Tanner Buchanan, into prom king.

The second is The Kissing Booth 3, the conclusion to the Netflix hit trilogy which stars Joey King, Jacob Elordi and Joel Courtney.

Among the other film titles dropping on the streamer this month are two Leonardo DiCaprio-led films — Christopher Nolan’s Inception and Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can — alongside ’80s classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off; Oscar-winning Seabiscuit; the Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones and Donald Sutherland starrer Space Cowboys; coming of age drama My Girl and its sequel My Girl 2; and puppet comedy Team America: World Police.

On the TV front, Sandra Oh stars in the upcoming comedy-drama series The Chair, which follows Dr. Ji-Yoon Kim (Oh) as she navigates her new role as the chair of the English department, and one of the few women and people of color, at Pembroke University.

The show is written by Amanda Peet, who co-wrote the pilot with Annie Julia Wyman, and is executive produced by Peet alongside Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

Other notable TV releases include the fifth season of the DreamWorks animated series Fast & Furious Spy Racers; the premieres of Paris Hilton‘s Cooking With Paris and Bake Squad, a dessert competition series from Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi;
