August is a big month for TV. New seasons of Preacher, Succession, The Terror, Lodge 49 are on the horizon, as is the premiere of HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones. It might be hard, though, to abandon the Netflix app, what with the streamer’s own slate of notable premieres. David Fincher’s chilling Mindhunter returns on the 16th to explore Charles Manson and the Atlanta child murders, while hit comedy GLOW piledrives its way into Las Vegas on August 9. Those longing for the bygone days of childhood, meanwhile, might enjoy the stunning puppet work of Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance or, perhaps, the animated absurdities of Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. New seasons of Dear White People, Derry Girls, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power are also on the way, as is Wu Assassins, a silly-looking bit of badassery starring The Raid’s Iko Uwais.

If that’s just too much TV, you’ll be happy to know Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky series is available come August 1. You can also celebrate the opening of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood with Quentin Tarantino’s lovely Jackie Brown, or pine for the long-gestating The Irishman with Martin Scorsese’s Gangs Of New York. If you’d rather watch, say, the first three Final Destination movies—no shade!—you might wanna hurry up. They shuffle off the digital coil on August 1.
