What’s Coming To and Leaving Netflix in August 2017

One of the best (and arguably worst) features of Netflix is the fact that the streaming giant’s library is constantly evolving. While that means there is always plenty of new content arriving on Netflix for your binging pleasure, it also means some of your favorite films and series can quietly disappear from the Netflix library with little to no warning. As streaming services jockey for position and make content acquisitions, many syndicated series have changed hands recently, much to the woe of some streaming audiences who saw their beloved content change hands (yeah, I’m looking at you, Futurama).

In August, Netflix will debut one of its most talked-about upcoming original series: Marvel’s The Defenders. The action-packed superhero noir will star Netflix’s four Marvel anti-heroes Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), Iron Fist (Danny Rand), and Daredevil (Charlie Cox) opposite Alexandra, a mysterious villain played by the legendary Sigourney Weaver. Marvel’s The Defenders debuts August 18th.

Also coming in August are some of the best science fiction films of the last few decades including the entire Matrix trilogy and Cloud Atlas. Netflix will also premiere two new documentaries: Barbecue, a look at fire-cooked meats around the world and the cultures which spawned them; and Icarus, an expose into the Russian olympic doping scandals of recent years.

Unfortunately, several beloved animated television series are leaving Netflix in August, including American Dad!, The League, two Justice League animated series. Also departing are a handful of coming-of-age comedies like Superbad, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and 10 Things I Hate About You. There’s still time to catch them if, you know, that’s your thing.

Here’s a complete list of all of Netflix’s arrivals and departures for August 2017.
