Netflix News: August Expirations and Releases


In the shadow of Netflix’s announcements at Comic-Con, it was almost forgotten that a new month was on the horizon, bringing with it a change of scenery for everyone’s favorite streaming site. It’s not a surprise the new offerings were pushed to the backburner: July has seen Netflix unveiling details and teasers for all of its Marvel programming, revealing plans for a Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival, and announcing a third season of the polarizing Black Mirror. We found out the site will stream CBS’s new Star Trek: Discovery series internationally, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life got a premiere date (November 25!),  and Canadian subscribers were thrilled to be the only nation afforded the privilege of streaming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But okay, enough about Netflix’s stellar month. What we really need to look toward is the future…a.k.a. August. It’s a pretty quiet month for the streaming service, but it’s not without its moments.
