What to watch on Netflix: New shows and movies in August 2022

(L-R) Snoop Dogg as Big John, Jamie Foxx as Bud Jablonski and Eric Lange as Seeger in Day Shift.

Typically, we focus on the originals when Netflix shares its new releases for the month. That is mostly the case for August 2022 as well, but Netflix is getting a few licensed gems we need to highlight. On August 1st, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy is coming to the streaming service. Whether you were a huge fan of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness or just want to wash the taste out of your mouth, these are worth a revisit.

Other highlights on Netflix in August include Jamie Foxx’s vampire movie Day Shift, Locke & Key season 3, and the service’s live-action Sandman series.
