6 Best Shows Coming To Netflix UK In August 2019 That’ll Make For A Perfect Summer Streaming Sesh

Netflix

Just when you thought you couldn't take anymore entertainment, that streaming services couldn't possibly do anymore to help you be antisocial — Netflix has come through again. This summer thus far has seen an absolute barrage of top shelf entertainment from the top streaming service. Which is no mean feat considering it feels like week on week they bring the goods. Summer time might be a time for outdoorsy pursuits but luckily for telly fans, it's also a good time to have a TV marathon. And the new shows coming to Netflix in August 2019 will not disappoint.

Because like when does it ever disappoint? Nope, never. This summer has already brought the last ever season of Orange Is The New Black. A devastating loss to many fans, but also done so well that it felt like a fond farewell. They also came through with the hotly anticipated Stranger Things 3. Which after a year long hiatus lived up to every single bit of the hype. Oh and hey what about a little show called Queer Eye? No you're crying at the mere mention of it. Not me, that would be ridiculous.

The fact is when it comes to a whole mish mash of entertainment, Netflix are your guys. From comedy, to gripping drama, to shows that you literally cannot stop watching. It looks like August is about to be more of the same. And thank goodness for that.
