These are the new movies and series to add to your watch list



It’s safe to say that it will be a while longer before anyone can head out to cinemas or enjoy movie marathons with friends. Five months into the quarantine and the same rules apply: stay safe and stay at home—where streaming is your best bet for entertainment. 


On the TV and film front, Netflix has you covered. August has a ton of exciting titles lined up that are worth keeping an eye out for: Mark your calendars for the third season of Selling Sunset, which premieres on the 7th. Catch the fourth season of 3% when it premieres on the 14th. The second season of Netflix original series Trinkets makes its way to the platform, too, on the 25th. And to close out the month, there’s K-Drama The World of the Married coming out on the 28th.


In between these releases, we’re excited to watch six other major titles this month. Scroll through to check them out and get streaming when they premiere.
