What's Coming to Netflix in August: Lucifer Season 5, Cobra Kai, and More

Hell yeah, Lucifer is back!

Amanda Bell

Get ready for August to be a really hot one as Lucifer makes its fiery return to Netflix for the first part of Season 5 on Friday, Aug. 21. Fans can expect plenty of fun, including a 1940s noir episode and some musical numbers, when this devilishly good show comes back. 

Lucifer isn't the only fan favorite that will premiere a new season next month. The Rain will also return for its third and final season on Thursday, Aug. 6, and we're really hoping to see the series return to its former glory in its last outing. Selling Sunset comes back for Season 3 on Friday, Aug. 7, and Netflix will debut an all-new series, The Great Heist, on Friday, Aug. 14. New animated comedy Hoops, starring Jake Johnson as a high school basketball coach, premieres Friday, Aug. 21. And on Friday, Aug. 28, Cobra Kai Seasons 1 and 2 will hit the platform as the series moves from YouTube to Netflix ahead of its third season, which will be a Netflix Original.

On the film side, fans can expect the arrival of Project Power, a sci-fi thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jamie Foxx, on Friday, Aug. 14, and there are plenty of documentaries and comedy specials on the way as well! 

Find out what else is heading to Netflix in August 2020 below, including all of the original TV shows and movies, along with licensed library additions.
