Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) Netflix in August

Netflix seems to be shooting for something of a theme in August, presumably to coincide with the release of a highly anticipated original series bringing together a team of superhumanly talented individuals to change the world for the better. We speak, of course of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the latest in the growing Wet Hot franchise that hits the service on August 4. And yes, there’s also Marvel’s The Defenders, which premiered its first episode (and a new trailer!) at Comic-Con this past weekend and debuts on August 18. Also new in Netflix originals this month is Adam Wingard’s live-action adaptation of Death Note, a more morally ambiguous affair that debuts on August 25.


Perhaps as a mea culpa for canceling the sci-fi siblings’ cult series Sense8, Netflix is adding a handful of Wachowski Sisters titles to its library this month, including Cloud Atlas and the Matrix trilogy. (Jupiter Ascending, your day will come.) Also new-old this month are Joe Dante’s Innerspace, the U.S. remake of Funny Games, spooky-teen favorites Sleepy Hollow and Beautiful Creatures, and ‘90s titles Jackie Brown, Practical Magic, and The Addams Family. Continuing the “Good Vs. Evil“ theme, the service will also debut the first seasons of The Good Place and something called Murderous Affairs, the latter of which sounds delightfully trashy.

Meanwhile, August 1 is the end of the line for The League, which is pulling seasons one through seven from Netflix. The animated Justice League and Justice League Unlimited series, American Dad!, Revenge, and comedies behaving badly Superbad, Dope, and Zack And Miri Make A Porno are on their way out as well.
