  • There are 60 new Netflix originals set to debut over the course of the month, and we’ll showcase every single one of them for you right here.

August 2020 only just began, but Netflix has already added a whopping 36 new titles to its massive streaming content catalog. That’s no typo… thirty-six new releases! The bulk of that came this past Saturday when Netflix dumped a slew of new movies into its US catalog. Highlights include Death at a Funeral, Being John Malkovich, Jurassic Park, Mr. Deeds, The NeverEnding Story, and a very intriguing new docuseries called Connected, featuring science journalist Latif Nasser. That last title is one of a whopping 60 different original movies and series Netflix will be debuting over the course of the month in August, and we’re going to take a look at the complete August 2020 releases list right here.

This is going to be a very busy month at Netflix, with well over 100 new movies, series, and specials on the docket. Check out the entire schedule of releases right here in our earlier coverage. Of course, tons of Netflix subscribers like to focus mainly on the new original movies and shows Netflix has planned each month. They won’t be disappointed in August because Netflix has some big releases in store.

The highest-profile new Netflix original coming in August 2020 is definitely Project Power on August 14th. It’s a high-octane thriller starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt about a new drug that gives people temporary superpowers. It sounds pretty silly — and it may very well be — but it’s also shaping up to be the biggest release of August. The only other title that comes close is Lucifer season 5, which is set to hit Netflix on August 21st.
