Welcome to your first look at what’s coming to Netflix in August 2019 in the United States. It’s going to be a busy month full of Netflix Originals and licensed content on the way to Netflix as the summer begins to wind down.
The Netflix Originals dominate our first look as we know about their releases much faster than other licensed content. On August 1st, it’s shaping up to be a nice month for new TV series with both The Sinner and Heartland returning for new seasons. We’ll also be getting two movies from Warner which are Clash of the Titans and Jupiter Ascending.
Note: This list is not yet complete. We’re expecting the full finalized list of August 2019 releases to be available on either August 22nd or the 23rd.
