Take a look at the movies and TV shows that will be added to the streaming service next month.

Netflix is making the end of summer a little less sad with a number of new TV shows and movies hitting the platform in August.

The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance, the buzzed-about prequel series to the 1982 cult classic film The Dark Crystal, is coming to the streamer in late August and features a star-studded voice cast.

The month will also bring new seasons of fan favorites like 13 Reasons WhyGLOW, Mindhunter, Dear White People and Cable Girls.

Patricia Arquette, Felicity Huffman and Angela Bassett will appear in the Netflix original comedy movie Otherhood, which will be available Friday. In the Netflix original Sextuplets, set to be released Aug. 16, Marlon Wayans will play six different lead roles, in addition to producing the movie.

Other notable movies coming to Netflix in August include Something’s Gotta Give, Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral and the Rocky franchise.

The month will also be big for documentaries with American Factory, a film directed by Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated duo Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, coming to Netflix on Aug. 21, and Diagnosis, the documentary series based off the popular New York Times Magazine medical column, bowing Aug. 16.
