Everything coming to Netflix in August

What’s new on Netflix this month?

In short – a tonne of original Netflix productions and some much-loved movies.

Netflix has really upped the ante for their original productions, and have come a long way since the first season of their flagship original, House of Cards.

Death Note

Death Note will be released on August 25. The beloved Japanese manga is given an American twist by Netflix and has already copped its fair share of criticism from fans of the original.

Marvel’s The Defenders


The first season of Marvel’s The Defenders will be released on August 18.

The Mist

The first season of The Mist will be released on August 25. Based on Stephen King‘s novel, The Mist has had a previous film adaption. It was fast-paced, terrifying, and involved a huge twist. Whether Netflix’s season-by-season take of the plot will fizzle out or succeed in extending the suspense remains to be seen.

Here’s a lil’ summary for you:
