All the must-see August Netflix films and tv series

26 July 2019

As every month, also for this August 2019 we come back with our list of the 5 must-see that we will see on Netflix.

I know, this July was very challenging, started with Stranger Things and ended with Money Heist, but you can not give up now. That’s why I’m here to advise you on some news coming out on Netflix in August to see under the umbrella or by plane. Let’s get started! 

Otherhood: As for the films, for the month of August Netflix focuses on sympathy and laughter with a film that sees Patricia Arquette alongside Angela Bassett and Felicity Huffman, in the role of three mothers who live that phase of life in which their children have, by now, their lives and no longer have space and time for their mothers. 

The three protagonists will decide to make a surprise visit to their children, returning with a tense leg in their lives. 

A carefree comedy, excellent for summer evenings, which also offers food for thought on the mother-son relationship and on the time that passes, changing relationships. 

Otherhood will be available from Friday, August 2.

Glow 3: The original Netflix series debuted in June 2017 is ready to surprise us with the third season. We’ll see the GLOW girls move to Las Vegas, a city that behind its perfect patina will reveal all its difficulties. If between the stage and the personal life of the girls there has always been a division, it seems that this August the border will dissolve, creating many problems. Obviously, we will find Alison Brie as Ruth and Betty Gilpin as Debbie. Great new entry is the Oscar-winning Geena Davis who will play a former soubrette, now director of the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino. 

Glow 3 will be available from Friday, August 9.

Mindhunter 2: There is not yet an official trailer, but the confirmation of the release of the second season of Mindhunter comes directly from its executive producer and director of some episodes, David Fincher, so we can not doubt it. In the first season, released in 2017, we were passionate about the stories of the two FBI agents, Holden Ford and Bill Tench and their investigations and studies of serial killers. Besides not having a trailer, we don’t even have an official plot, but thanks to Fincher himself we know that the episodes will be based on the series of murders that took place in Atlanta between the late ’70s and early ’80s. 

The second season of Mindhunter will consist of 8 episodes and will be entirely available from Friday, August 16.

13 Reason Why 3: We’ll notify you, but know that the last official confirmation by Netflix has not yet taken place.  The third season of one of the Netflix series that has divided the public and the critics is about to return. There’s no official news yet on what the plot will be, but most likely, as we tie it to the end of the second season, it will be centered on Tyler, who was ready to make a massacre at school. 
The only certainty is that Hannah Baker will not be there. 
The third season of Thirteen – 13 Reason Why is expected to come out Friday, August 23

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance: The month ends in big with a new series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The series is inspired by the 1982 movie Dark Crystal and the events told take place many years before the ones seen on the big screen. The short synopsis that was released promises action and adventure: “When three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world. 

The series of 10 episodes will be available from Friday, August 30.
