Netflix Guide: What’s On Netflix (August 2021)

Somehow, August is a few days away which means summer is winding down, but fortunately Netflix is just gearing up.

In addition to a plethora of new baking shows, murder documentaries, gritty dramas, and the highly anticipated anime The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, there are a number of new-to-Netflix films and series headed your way in just a few days.

True crime fans will be excited to dive into Shiny_Flakes: The Teenage Drug Lord on August 3rd, as well as the new six-part documentary series Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami which is out on the 4th.

Throughout August, three Untold documentaries will be headed for Netflix — Malice at the Palace, Deal with the Devil, and Crime & Penalties.

If you’re looking for something a little more lighthearted for your next Netflix binge, you may be excited to learn that Cooking with Paris is headed to the streamer on August 4th. Yes, that Paris Hilton and she is bound to entertain as she cooks with some of her celebrity friends. That’s hot. If Paris Hilton isn’t quite your speed, Bake Squad arrives on August 11th. At the end of the month, Marie Kondo returns with Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo.

If you’re looking for new drama in your life, you can catch Jason Momoa in Sweet Girl and Sandra Oh in The Chair on August 20th, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf on August 23rd, and Adrian Grenier and Betty Gabriel in Clickbait on August 25th.
