What’s Coming to Netflix This August 2022

There’s a big schedule of entertaining movies and TV coming to Netflix in August. August’s theme focuses on husbands searching for answers (and retribution) when the likes of Jason Momoa, John David Washington and Lior Raz rejoin the streaming lineup with all-new action thrillers.

You’ll also see the return of Benioff and Weiss, the two showrunners of Game of Thrones, a classic action movie from 2010 and the latest installment in the Witcher anime as we eagerly await the return by Geralt.

1. Loser (2010)

Coming to Netflix: August 1st

Language: English

Skinny person: It’s hard to believe this ensemble action movie is over 10 years old. The Losers is a good old-fashioned tale of action and explosions, with some humor throughout as a misfit CIA team tries to overcome betrayal.

Led by solid work from Chris Evans, Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana and a younger Denny the Heart Patient (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), with a bit of profanity from Jason Patric helping The Losers qualify as a Fun way to kill time for a few hours.

2. The Witcher: The Wolf’s Nightmare (2021)

Coming to Netflix: August 2

Language: English

Skinny person: As a Witcher loyalist, I’m almost as excited about this animated series as I am about the return of the dashing Henry Cavill in December.

However we know Geralt of Rivia well, Nightmare of the Wolf will tell the story of Vesemir, the grizzled wizard from the School of the Wolf who taught Blavikan the Butcher everything he knows. I’m so excited for this extension of witch legend I can drink a potion and take down some Nekkers.

3. Cocaine Cowboys: Kings of Miami (2021)

Coming to Netflix: August 4

Language: English/Spanish

Documentary filmmaker Billy Corben is back with another installment of the Cocaine Cowboys story in this six-part documentary series. According to the Netflix site, the first episode of the latest series begins with: “Two childhood friends go from high school dropouts to the most powerful drug lords in Miami in this true crime saga lasted for decades”.

I love a good drug movie, but the real-life stories and stories of the people who lived there are even wilder than the made-up stuff.

4. Old Road (2020)


Coming to Netflix: August 5

Language: English/Spanish

Skinny person: If you like a creepy horror movie with face paint, snakes and people superstitious about ancient magic then The Old Ways will be perfect.

Mexican-American reporter Christina arrives in the town of Veracruz to tell a story about witchcraft and wizardry, only to be kidnapped by locals who think she is the devil. Good times!

5. Hit and Run (Part 1, 2021)


Coming to Netflix: August 6

Language: English

If you’ve seen Lior Raz in the excellent Netflix series Fauda, ​​you’ll know this Israeli actor is a bona fide and cool action star (check out Fauda, ​​I highly recommend it) . In this new project from the producers responsible for Fauda and The Killing, Raz heads to the states to find the person responsible for his wife’s hit-and-run death. Cue the intrigue, heart-pounding action and tough questions. The trailer sent me running through a brick wall!

6. Wizard King

Coming to Netflix: August 9

Language: Japanese (with English Subtitles)

Skinny person: Shaman King is the latest popular manga title to be adapted into a full anime series. Creator Hiroyuki Takei chose shamanism, a religious practice that involves interacting with the spirit world through altered states of consciousness, as the main subject in the manga series because it had never been attempted before.

The synopsis is described by Netflix as follows: “Medium Yoh Asakura participates in a fighting tournament held every 500 years, competing against other magicians in his bid to become the all-powerful Wizard King.” I would love a series of crazy anime battles!

7. Beckett (2021)

Coming to Netflix: August 13

Language: English

Skinny person: John David Washington always seems to get into some bad shit, whether it’s infiltrating the KKK (BlackKklansman), playing wide receiver (Ballers), or making a headache-inducing Chris Nolan movie (Tenet).

Beckett is no exception, as Washington is caught up in an international political conspiracy after a car accident while vacationing in Greece with Alicia Vikander.

8. Gone Forever (2021)

Coming to Netflix: August 13

Language: French (with English Subtitles)

Skinny person: Another international series based on Harlan Coben’s quality novels (after The Stranger, The Woods and The Innocent).

Gone for Good continues our August theme of men searching for answers, as Guillaume searches for his missing lover just a decade after the death of his wife and best friend. That’s all there is to know for newcomers, but if you’re a fan of Coben’s books, you know there will be more twists than Diagon Alley.

9. Sweet Girl (2020)

Coming to Netflix: August 20

Language: English

Skinny person: This one is simple: ask your lover, friend with benefits, or casual relationship if they want to see a Jason Momoa movie.

You already know what the answer is. Commit yourself to a good revenge, wholeheartedly. I don’t even care that it’s a story about a heartbroken father searching for answers about his wife’s death… I agree!

10. The Chair (Part 1, 2021)

Coming to Netflix: August 20

Language: English

The Skinny One: Benioff and Weiss have been pretty quiet since the end of Game of Thrones (which might have something to do with the shithouse ending). The Chair is their new series, starring the legendary Sandra Oh as the new Chair of a failing English department at a prestigious university. I’m sure there are a few Lannisters among these, just not the ones who embarrass their sister (I hope).
