Summer is here, parties are back, and movie theaters are open again. But after a year of being stuck inside, venturing out of the house every night can become exhausting, let alone a burden on your wallet. Luckily you already have a Netflix subscription, which will occupy your time on those days when you want to stay in and discover — or rediscover — an amazing series or have an at-home movie night. Fortunately, whether you’re looking for a low-key weekend or are waiting on that second vaccine dose,
Netflix has an array of new content to keep you busy throughout the month of August.
Earlier this year, the streaming platform announced plans to release at least one new original film every week in 2021 — and with new thrillers, rom-coms, and fantasy movies coming, it’s clear August will be jam-packed with content as the streamer makes good on that promise. First, there’s the third and final installment of
series, starring The Kissing Booth Joey King and Euphoria ’s Jacob Elordi. And for fans of the beloved Japanese manga series Hunter x Hunter, you can start prepping the marathon snacks now, since two new seasons are debuting this August.
Along with the new titles coming to the streaming service, make sure you save some time to watch the films and series set to leave Netflix in the weeks ahead.
Election, and Love Actually, are all sadly dropping from the streamer this month — but at least plenty of shows and movies are on their way to fill the void. Here’s everything coming to and leaving Netflix in August 2021. The Time Traveler’s Wife The Kissing Booth 3
Based on a series of novels by
Beth Reekles, franchise has been a monstrous streaming hit for Netflix. The Kissing Booth Joey King stars as Shelly “Elle” Evans, whose life gets complicated when she starts dating her best friend Lee Flynn’s ( Joel Courtney) older brother Noah ( Jacob Elordi) in the first film. Shot back-to-back with the second film, will see Elle make her highly-anticipated college decision, choosing whether to attend Harvard with Noah or Berkeley with Lee. Get ready to tune in when it premieres on Aug. 11. The Kissing Booth 3 The Chair: Season 1
and Grey’s Anatomy actor Killing Eve Sandra Oh starring in another television dramedy? Sign us up. Created and co-written by Amanda Peet, The Chair follows Oh as Professor Ji-Yoon Kim, the first woman of color to become head of the English department at fictional Pembroke University. However, the department is failing as Kim is appointed its leader, so she must figure out how to salvage it in this series produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, set to premiere on Aug. 27. Game of Thrones’ Stranger than Fiction
Featuring a star-studded cast of
Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dustin Hoffman, Queen Latifah, Emma Thompson, and Kristin Chenoweth, this 2006 fantasy dramedy centers on Chicago IRS agent Harold Crick (Ferrell), who begins hearing a voice narrating his everyday life. Soon enough, he realizes that the voice is seemingly reading a novel version of his life that is set to end with the main character — aka Crick — dying at the end. Crick frantically seeks to prevent the dark ending throughout this Golden Globe-nominated film, which leaves Netflix on Aug. 30. Election
Released the same year as her other breakout movie,
, this 1999 black comedy helped launch Cruel Intentions Reese Witherspoon’s ever-popular film career. She stars as Tracy Flick, an overachieving senior high school student who’s in the running to become student body president. But civics teacher Jim McAllister, played by Matthew Broderick, unfairly resents Flick for having a sexual affair with another teacher who was fired for the incident — and attempts to sabotage her candidacy. With both an Oscar and a Golden Globe nomination under its belt, you’ll want to catch this cult classic before it leaves Netflix on Aug. 31. Superbad
Created from a script penned by
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg starting at age 13, this iconic 2007 teen comedy centers around Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera), two high school seniors determined to lose their virginities before graduation. The Peabody-nominated film also stars Rogen, Bill Hader, and Emma Stone in her film debut, and is especially fun to revisit now that Hill’s younger sister Beanie Feldstein starred in 2019’s conceptually-similar and equally-hilarious .
