Here’s What’s New on Netflix in August 2019 (and What’s Leaving)

4 minute read

Though you might have spent July binging the new seasons of Stranger Things and Queer Eye, Netflix is back with a fresh batch of original programming.

Glow, the Netflix comedy executive produced by Orange Is the New Black and Weeds’ Jenji Kohan and starring Alison Brie, returns for its third season on Aug. 9 — the same day that Rocko’s Modern Life, the beloved Nickelodeon animated series, gets revived with a new season, only on Netflix. For fans of comedy, Hasan Minhaj has a new season of Patriot Act out on Aug. 4, and Tiffany Haddish has a new special, They Ready, available starting Aug. 13. The third season of Dear White People will also be available on Aug. 2 to round out the group of original programming.

If you’re looking for something spooky, Mindhunter, the crime thriller series starring Jonathan Groff, returns with its second season on Aug. 16.

As for licensed content, you can watch all five Rocky movies and Sex and the City: The Movie starting on Aug. 1, as well as Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown.
