What's New on Netflix: August 2020.

Netflix has quite a bit of family friendly fare to send off the summer in style.

Netflix once again puts out a giant platter of new content for August, this time spread more evenly throughout the month. For kids, Netflix drops a fantastic selection. From the final installment of Dreamworks’ Tales of Arcadia series to returning favorites like Aggretsuko, Glitch Techs, and The Seven Deadly Sins, Netflix is owning the animation genre.

For adults, the offerings may lack a killer app like last month’s Cursed or Warrior Nun. Netflix does make up for it with a solid selection of classic movies like the OG Jurassic Park trilogy, 2012’s Les Miserables, and two of the Daniel Craig Bond films.

What's New on Netflix: August 2020.
For the adults, may I suggest catching the excellent, gonzo action flick Hardcore Henry?

New and Notable.

  • The Rain, Season 3 (Aug. 6) – I fell asleep on this series after the first season, but the trailer for season three looks like it has the hooks to get me to catch up.

One wants to save the world, the other wants to create a new one. The battle between Rasmus and Simone re-commences as they fight to save what is left of humankind as we know it. The virus can be stopped. At a cost.

  • Glitch Techs, Season 2 (Aug. 17) – I missed this show when its first season came out in February. I’m glad I caught it the second time around, because the animation looks great and the story is fun.

Two teens work at a game store as a front for their actual job: Hunting video game monsters who’ve broken out into the real world.

  • Cobra Kai, Seasons 1 and 2 (Aug. 28) – Thank goodness Netflix scooped this up after YouTube Red failed, because it’s a great series. We did our heads up for Season 1, now Netflix is letting you catch up on both seasons before the premier of the all new third season in September.
