What's New To Netflix This Week? More Anime, Movies, TV, And Originals

Here's everything arriving between August 2-8.


Summer continues to march along, bringing with it more and more content to watch every week. From a Netflix point of view, the next seven days bringing new releases is a bit of a mixed bag, and therefore also a mixed blessing: There isn't a ton that's super-exciting, meaning this might be a good time to catch up on your watchlist.

Before you dive completely into things you've been meaning to get around to watching, August 6 is bringing the third season of the anime TV series, The Seven Deadly Sins. The upcoming season arc, subtitled "Imperial Wrath of The Gods," continues the story adapted from the popular Japanese manga of the same name. The show chronicles the fallout from a kingdom taken over by tyrants, inciting a deposed princess "to find a group of evil knights to help take back her realm."

Connected: The Hidden Science Of Everything is a Netflix newcomer from journalist Latif Nasser, a docuseries about "the surprising and intricate ways in which we are connected to each other, the world and the universe." Releasing during a time where many of us continue to be stuck inside and quarantined, possibly feeling disconnected, the show's trailer suggests this is is a somewhat upbeat show that zooms out on humanity to help us feel a little more, well, connected.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Netflix this week.
