The Invisible Man - Trailer

Another month, another busy four weeks for Netflix.

The streaming service has a string of new television shows and films that users will be able to add to their watchlist over the coming weeks.

While somewhat lower on the high-profile original releases, August has plenty of titles people will no doubt be discussing.

These range from the long-awaited return of Lucifer – the show’s first batch of episodes following its cancellation by Fox – and the third season of US property series Selling Sunset.

Netflix has also acquired hit YouTube series Cobra Kai, a beloved Karate Kid spinoff, and will also release documentary Rising Phoenix, which sees elite athletes and insiders reflect on the Paralympic Games for an examination of how they impact a global understanding of disability and diversity.

Available to stream as part of the streaming service’s licenced content will be American History X, starring Edward Norton, Shia LaBeouf film The Peanut Butter Falcon and sci-fi horror Upgrade, a sci-fi horror from The Invisible Man director Leigh Whannell.

Find a full list of every movie and TV show being added to Netflix in August below.
