Now that nearly all the summer blockbusters have dropped, you may be looking for something new to watch with your loved ones (or alone after they’ve all gone to sleep). Luckily, Netflix has you covered.
Since we already covered what’s leaving the streaming platform in August, here are the shows and movies that need to be on your radar right now.
