All of Netflix's New Shows and Movies (August 2022)

The Sandman was just the beginning

Liam Mathews

Netflix started August with a snooze — the good kind of snooze! The Sandman is Netflix's newest fantasy hit, an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's coveted graphic novels. But it's not the only new show on Netflix this month. This Friday brings one of the most anticipated shows of August: Season 3 of Mindy Kaling's teen rom-com Never Have I Ever, which is already getting good reviews

Those are the biggest hits, as the rest of the month isn't quite as exciting with Netflix originals, so you might want to settle in with some licensed content like the original Spider-Man trilogy and the most recent season of Riverdale. The full list of everything coming to and leaving Netflix is below the top picks.

Trainwreck: Woodstock '99 (August 3) 

This docuseries is all about the he-said-she-said bulls--t. It explores the debacle of Woodstock '99, the music festival marred by violence, depravity, and Limp Bizkit. Last year's HBO documentary Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage beat Trainwreck to the punch, but with three episodes, this one gets even deeper into how out of control it got. [Trailer | Review]

The Sandman (August 5)

When I say this blockbuster fantasy series is long-awaited, I mean it. An adaptation of Neil Gaiman's beloved comic series has been in development on and off since 1996. And it's honestly a good thing that it didn't get made into a movie back then, because TV is a much better format for a story this sprawling. It tells the story of Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), who breaks free from a century of human captivity and sets out to restore his place as the ruler of dreamworld. It's a fantasy-superhero epic that features Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer Morningstar, who is technically the same character as Tom Ellis' Lucifer Morningstar from Lucifer (the shows share source material), just a drastically different interpretation. [Trailer] 

Never Have I Ever Season 3 (August 12)

In many ways, Never Have I Ever Season 2 gave me everything I wanted — a huge win for Team Paxton (Darren Barnet), namely — but this is first and foremost a show about a high school love triangle, and I understand that my happiness will probably be short lived in its upcoming third (and penultimate) season, after Eleanor (Ramona Young) told Ben (Jaren Lewison) about Devi's (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) feelings for him in the finale. Still, I'm enchanted by this show's mix of silly teen rom-comedy, compassionate musings on the lingering pervasiveness of grief, and the omniscient narration of John McEnroe. -Allison Picurro

The Next 365 Days (August 19)

The final installment of Netflix's campy Polish erotic thriller trilogy is on this list of "best" new stuff because it's the best thing to watch on Netflix if for some reason you can't visit a XXX site. These movies aren't good, but the sex scenes sure are graphic! I didn't realize that the second and third movies were filmed back to back, but they were, because 365 Days: This Day only came out in April. I know you're excited to find out how the story ends, but don't worry, your secret is safe with me. 

Mo (August 24) 

Comedian Mo Amer — who you may recognize from his supporting role on the Hulu series Ramy or his Netflix stand-up specials — gets a Ramy of his own in this self-titled, semi-autobiographical dramedy series about a Palestinian immigrant living in Texas with his family. Amer's a funny guy, and this show will introduce him to a bigger audience. Ramy himself, Ramy Youssef, co-created the series and executive-produces. It almost feels like a Ramy spin-off.
