WHAT TO WATCH ON NETFLIX THIS AUGUST



Happy new month fellow explorers! With July over and theatres not planning to fully open anytime soon, it’s safe to say streaming services will be the major source of movies for this month. Netflix is the most used service in the world and probably the only service used in my region so I’ve decided to give you a preview of what the month of August has to offer.

While there are a lot of movies expected to be available next month on the service the major highlights are Lucifer Season 5 and all four seasons of Nickelodeon’s hit series Avatar: The Legend of Korra. We also get the first season of Nigerian Sitcom – Ojo’s in d’ House and Daniel Craig’s first two Bond movies to roundup the month while we wait for the yet delayed – No Time To Die.So get your calendars folks it’s time to save the date.

NOTE: Movies, TV series and Documentaries with (N) after them means they are Netflix Originals or Netflix produced. Also, the list below is the current schedule for August 2020 by Netflix so the list will be edited in case of any future adjustemnts.
