Now Playing: Netflix In August 2019 - Best New Movies And TV Shows To Watch!

Now that we're in August, Netflix is releasing new content to its subscribers almost on a daily basis. That means you'll have plenty of new movies, TV shows and Netflix originals to binge through for the rest of the month. You can find the full list of the August releases below, along with a few of our highlights for the month.

The first of these major releases is Season 3 of GLOW on August 9. In the newest season, the women of the professional wrestling league head to Las Vegas to perform a nightly show. However, it's not as fun as previous seasons, as I said in my GLOW review: "The latest offering of Netflix's comedic drama feels less fun than previous seasons. Tonally, it's much more serious, dealing with these character's life-altering problems rather than the goofiness of trying to figure out what professional wrestling is or putting on an entertaining show. The show steps away from actual wrestling, even when wrestling is a daily event for these women, which is a strange choice."

On August 16, Mindhunter returns to Netflix for a second season. It's a true crime series following a FBI hostage negotiator during the late '70s who starts the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit using criminal psychology to find and track serial killers. Season 1 revolved around interviewing imprisoned murderers like Bill Kemper. Season 2 follows a string of child murders in Atlanta that took place between 1979-81. Season 1 of Mindhunter was incredibly captivating and one of our favorite shows of 2017.

Finally, on August 30, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance arrives. This Netflix original is actually a prequel to Jim Henson's 1982 classic The Dark Crystal. The original film was incredibly dark, following a mystical planet with two warring factions the evil Skeksis and the wizards called urRu. The prequel series will follow three elf-like Gelflings who rise up to rebel against the Skeksis.

Obviously, there is a lot more headed to the service thoughout August, but there are plenty of movies that are leaving as well. You only have a matter of weeks to watch Final Destination 1-3 (leaving August 1), No Country for Old Men (August 11), The 40-Year Old Virgin (August 16), and plenty of other classic movies. Below, you'll find everything coming and leaving Netflix for the month of August.
