Wednesday star Emma Myers leads the new Netflix coming-of-age mystery series A Good Girl's Guide to Murder, which is based on the series of novels by Holly Jackson.

Release Date: Aug. 8

Sadly, it's time to say goodbye to The Umbrella Academy. Fans have been patiently (or impatiently, depending on the fan) for the fourth a final season to premiere since season 3 premiered over two years ago. It's taken some time and a couple strikes to finally land on our watch lists, but on Aug. 8, the beloved series comes to an end with the very last six episodes. See how the show comes to an end and where all the characters land in the series finale.

Emily in Paris season 4 part 1

Release Date: Aug. 15

She's back and more stylish than ever. Like The Umbrella Academy, it's taken a bit longer than normal for a new season of Emily in Paris to drop in our watch lists, but on Aug. 15, the first half of season 4 premieres to start the party! (Don't worry, the second half drops less than one month later on Sept. 12.) The highly anticipated fourth season will take Emily to Italy and celebrate Christmas, all while answering all of our burning questions. Namely, Alfie or Gabriel?!

The Union

Release Date: Aug. 16

Mark Wahlberg and Halle Berry are two actors best known for their work in the action genre, so it's only fitting that the pair joins forces for Netflix new original action flick The Union. Wahlberg stars as Mike, a construction worker who finds himself unexpectedly wrapped up in the spy world after being recruited for a top-secret intelligence mission by his high school sweetheart Roxanne, played by Berry. Check out all of the explosive action (and romance?) when the movie premieres on Aug. 16.


KAOS - Netflix /

Release Date: Aug. 29

KAOS might be one of the most unexpected Netflix new releases of August, but it's sure to be one of the month's biggest hits. The new series centers on Zeus (Jeff Goldblum) as he becomes more and more paranoid about his seemingly impending fall. There's even more Greek mythology chaos in all eight of the show's episodes, which also star Janet McTeer, Cliff Curtis, David Thewlis, Killian Scott, Debi Mazar, Aurora Perrineau, Nabhaan Rizwan, and more. See it all unfold on Aug. 29!
