Here’s What Comes To Netflix In August 2018

How you'll spend the rest of your summer.

Netflix must want you to stream away your last few weeks of summer.

How else to explain why the company adds about four dozen original movies, shows and specials this August?

And, on top of that, Netflix has a movie lineup that includes “The Aviator,” “No Country for Old Men,” “Million Dollar Baby” and “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.”

Cancel your August summer plans. Forget the ice cream cone, unless you’re letting that melting goodness drip onto your couch instead of by a pool.

The new Matt Groening cartoon, “Disenchanted,” and the second season of “Ozark” stand out as the Netflix Original shows to watch this month. Or, you could check out the third season of “Dinotrux Supercharged,” a show about trucks that look like dinosaurs and also have special powers.

A few notable movies leave the service. It’s your last chance for “Finding Dory,” “Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” 

Check out the full list of arrivals and departures below.

And, if you want to stay informed on what’s joining Netflix on a weekly basis, make sure to subscribe to the Streamline newsletter.
