Netflix's August Lineup Might Be Its Most Stacked Yet

I'm overwhelmed by all the options.

by Ani Bundel

Netflix is not having the easiest of years in 2022. After banner gains during the lockdown era of 2020 and 2021, what goes up has started coming down with subscriber losses. Netflix’s back-to-back release of Stranger Things 4 Volumes 1 and 2 did much to silence critics; however, with all episodes now out and half a year still to go in 2022, streaming viewers are curious about what comes next. So, what’s coming to Netflix in August 2022? The answer looks like “a whole lot more.”

August will start with one of Netflix’s hotly anticipated projects of the year, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s seminal graphic novel, The Sandman. The project boasts an A-list cast and a high-concept story about the King of Dreams. Imprisoned for nearly a century, the once-omnipresent Sandman escapes, discovers modern-day Earth, and sets about reasserting himself in his domain of humanity’s collective unconscious.

But that’s only the beginning. August also brings back fan-favorite dramas Never Have I Ever and Locke & Key for their respective third seasons. In reality shows, Indian Matchmaking Season 2, Glow Up Season 4, and the new Brazilian editions of Queer Eye and Iron Chef all arrive this month. Plus, the Untold docuseries returns with new weekly installments.

The movie offerings are just as stacked, with the documentary Clusterf**k: Woodstock ’99, the Jamie Foxx vampire hunter feature Day Shift, the musical 13, and brand new rom-coms Royalteen and Wedding Season. Crank up the A/C; no one’s going anywhere this month.
