August marks back to school, which means procrastination and caffeine are in session for college students. Luckily, the lineup for Netflix’s August additions is here to help with those long all-nighters that are sure to come.

What’s New

Though we dread the beginning of a new month with all of the Netflix departures, we can also look forward to the new additions to make up for the losses. August is gaining some strong additions, including movies like Sex and the City: The Movie, Groundhog Day and two highly anticipated Netflix Originals: Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready, a half-hour, six episode, series in which Haddish features specially chosen comedians, Chaunté Wayans, April Macie, Tracey Ashley, Aida Rodriguez, Flame Monroe and Marlo Williams, and GLOW: Season 3, a classic Netflix series about the world of women wrestling in the ’80s. Here is a complete list of every new title coming to Netflix in August:
