Here’s Everything New on Netflix in August 2021—and What’s Leaving

4 minute read

Netflix has something for every just about viewer coming to the streaming service in August 2021, whether that means old episodes of 30 Rock or new episodes of Paris Hilton’s cooking show, aptly titled Cooking With Paris. A slew of other originals are arriving on the platform, from the new series The Chair, in which Sandra Oh plays the first woman of color to lead a faltering English department at a prestigious university, to He’s All That, the Addison Rae-starring remake of She’s All That.

Here’s what’s new on Netflix this month—and everything set to leave the streaming platform.
