What's New On Netflix In August 2021? Witcher Anime, Monster Hunter, And More

Check out everything coming to the streaming service for the month of August.


The heat is on, and not just for singer Glenn Frey. It's also on for streaming service Netflix, which is dropping plenty of new movies, TV shows, and originals for the month of August. This includes the new animated movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf and Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild. Check out everything coming to Netflix below, along with some recommendations.

Arriving on August 23 is the latest installment in Netflix's growing Witcher universe. The animated movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf arrives that day. The film follows a young Vesemir as he makes some serious cash hunting down monsters. Of course, that's not the whole story, as Vesemir has to face demons from his past. Check out the trailer for yourself below.

On August 12, the animated movie Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild arrives. A young hunter named Aiden has to protect his village from being destroyed as it's in the path of an elder dragon who is rampaging across the world. Aiden teams up with other hunters in order to stop this menace. The 3D animated film feels a bit more geared towards an all-ages audience--as The Witcher movie and show are strictly for adults.

Throughout the rest of the month, there are plenty of movies and TV shows you can check out. On August 1, seven seasons of the hit comedy series 30 Rock arrive, along with classic comedies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Team America: World Police, and Pineapple Express. If you're looking for something a bit more serious, The Machinist and Inception both arrive on August 1 as well.

Below, you'll find the full list for everything coming to Netflix for the month of August, and if you're looking for more streaming service additions, check out what's coming to Hulu, Disney+, and Shudder for August.
