Coming and Going on Netflix in August 2019

Netflix continues to ramp up its original programming. August brings the fantasy epic Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which continues the story begun in the 1982 Jim Henson film, and the original movie comedies Otherhood with Patricia Arquette, Angela Bassett, and Felicity Huffman and Sextuplets with Marlon Wayans, and the original documentaries American Factory and The Family, an investigation of a Christian fundamentalist organization with powerful political connections.

Also coming in August are the Netflix Original action series Wu Assassins with Indonesian action star Iko Uwais in San Francisco’s Chinatown, new young adult thriller The A List from BBC, a new collection of reality shows from Tiny House Nation to Styling Hollywood, Netflix hits MINDHUNTER: Season 2 and Glow: Season 3, plus new seasons of Netflix originals Dear White People, Derry Girls, Cable Girls, Sacred Games, and many others.

Netflix also adds the fifth and final seasons of the CW shows Jane the Virgin and iZombie, plus The 100: Season 6 and The Sinner: Julian from USA. Newly added movies include Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, David Fincher’s Panic Room, Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York, Something’s Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, and Groundhog Day with Bill Murray.

Among the films leaving in August are Oscar winners The Hurt Locker, No Country for Old Men, and Gosford Park, plus Wind River, Zombieland, and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
