As summer comes to a close, that doesn’t mean that there will be a lack of new Netflix shows hitting our watch lists. August brings arguably some of the best shows of the year.
Even though everyone’s still talking about Stranger Things and theorizing what could happen in the upcoming fifth and final season, it’s time to turn our attention to some different teen drama with the likes of Never Have I Ever and Locke & Key.
Elsewhere on Netflix in August, other new release shows include a highly anticipated comic adaptation, a reality series, a documentary series, and what could very well be the next addictive limited series. But are they all worth adding to your watch list?
Let’s take a closer look at some of the best Netflix shows coming in August 2022 and a few shows you could probably save for later, beginning below with definite must-watch Never Have I Ever.

Watch! The teen comedy series from co-creator Mindy Kaling returns for its penultimate season, and it’s going to be the best yet. Picking up from Devi’s decision in the season 2 finale, she and Paxton are officially together, but we know to expect the unexpected from Devi. Don’t miss a single second of Never Have I Ever season 3 when it premieres Aug. 12 on Netflix.
Watch! Based on the comic book by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman just might be one of the most highly anticipated new Netflix shows of the year. Whether these kinds of fantasy, sci-fi series are normally you’re kind of thing or not, it’s worth checking out since it’s likely to be a new hit for Netflix. Add the 10-episode first season to your watch list on Aug. 5.
Skip! Each month, Netflix releases a new documentary series or two looking to replicate the success they have had with such content in the past. I Just Killed My Dad arrives on Aug. 9 and is a chilling three-part series that tells the true story of the Templet family. If docuseries tend to hit a little too close to home for you, skip I Just Killed My Dad. Otherwise, enjoy the latest addition to Netflix’s true crime catalog.
Watch! Netflix’s teen fantasy series comes to an end with its third and final season. If you haven’t yet watched Locke & Key, now is the perfect time to start binge-watching the first two seasons before season 3 brings the story of the Locke family to a conclusion. The eight-episode final season will be released on Wednesday, Aug. 10.
Watch! You know you have been waiting for the next best addictive limited series, and Netflix sure will deliver in August with Echoes. Michelle Monaghan stars as twin sisters Leni and Gina, who have secretly swapped lives throughout adulthood and share two husbands, homes, and families. But when one of the twins goes missing, their jig is finally up. Echoes premieres all seven episodes on Aug. 19 and also stars Matt Bomer, Daniel Sunjata, Karen Robinson, and Jonathan Tucker.

Skip! Thanks to the success of the real estate reality series Selling Sunset, Netflix hasn’t launched its own reality series franchise centered in the dramatic world of luxury real estate. Selling the OC is the newest entry in the Selling saga and features a new crop of Oppenheim Group realtors taking on Orange County, California. Unless you’re invested in the drama, skip this one on Aug. 24.
Watch! From co-creators and executive producers Mohammed “Mo” Amer and Ramy Youssef, Mo centers on Mo Najjar, a Palestinian refugee living in Houston, Texas with his family as he adapts to his new surrounding on the way to becoming an American citizen. The heartfelt comedy will contain eight 30-minute episodes and could be the next fan-favorite when it premieres on Aug. 24.
Skip! There are so many fun animated series coming to Netflix in August, including the second season of The Cuphead Show!, which premieres on Aug. 19. Based on the hit video game, the series is back for another season. Check out the new season for some fun and laughter, but if you haven’t already watched the series, it might not be your August priority.
Watch! Based on the book by Helen Wan, Partner Track stars Arden Cho as Ingrid Yun, an ambitious young lawyer working her way up through the partner track at a high-powered New York City law firm. Based on the success of The Lincoln Lawyer, another escapist legal drama could be just the thing Netflix needs, and the new series premieres this August.
