Everything Coming to Streaming in August

As summer heats up and we all hide in our houses and dream of fall–or sure, maybe go outside and enjoy nature–the time is ripe to enjoy the shade, A.C., and an extremely good lineup of streaming TV headed our way this August. As with any form of entertainment, the quality of what’s headed to screens ebbs and flows, but August is an exceedingly exciting month with a whole bunch of massive shows headed to our screens. So grab a cold drink, lower that thermostat, and enjoy our picks from this month’s offerings.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Season 3 (Netflix)

Everything Coming to Streaming in August_1
Netflix’s beautiful re-imagining of the cult classic Filmation cartoon She-Ra is returning and we couldn’t be happier. The gorgeous animation, sweet character interactions, and bundles of heart have made this one of our favorite new animated shows and we’re eager to know what Adora, Glimmer, and Bow are getting up to as season 3 hits on August 2nd.

The Righteous Gemstones (HBO)

Everything Coming to Streaming in August_2
One of our most anticipated releases this year, HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones, “tells the story of a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work.” It also stars a stacked cast including John Goodman, Danny McBride, Edi Patterson, Adam Devine, Cassidy Freeman, Tony Calvero, Tim Baltz and Greg Alan Williams. The first episode hits HBO on August 18th at 10 p.m. and we cannot wait.

Mission Impossible – Fallout (Amazon/Hulu)

Everything Coming to Streaming in August_3
Maybe the best entry into Tom Cruise’s 23-year tenure as Ethan Hunt, Mission Impossible – Fallout is an action-packed romp through international waters as the team comes up against some of their most fearsome and deadly enemies yet. Christopher McQuarrie’s brilliant flick also mediates on the impact and actions of Hunt and his crew, who have to deal with the ramifications of their world-saving but often morally compromised actions. MI – Fallout hits Amazon and Hulu on August 23rd.

The Favorite (HBO)

Everything Coming to Streaming in August_4
If you haven’t already fallen in love with The Favourite then you’re in luck as it hits HBO on August 3rd and is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Yorgos Lanthimos’ brilliantly bonkers period love triangle won Olivia Coleman an Oscar and made The Lobster director one of the most sought after talents in Hollywood. Basically, it’s amazing and you need to watch it as soon as possible.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (Netflix)

Everything Coming to Streaming in August_5

Maybe the show we’re most excited for this year, Louis Letterier’s Dark Crystal prequel series looks like an absolute puppet dreamworld. With a massive cast, huge scale, and potential to expand the lore of the beloved franchise, it’s going to be a long wait ’til it hits on August 30th!
