A big week of new releases awaits Netflix in the United States and some big global Netflix releases. The big re-release of The Sandman on Netflix is highly anticipated, but there are also plenty of new movies coming, including (hopefully) the big new Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland.
Want to see what else Netflix has to offer in August? We’ve got you covered as we’ve just updated our guide to the new movies and shows coming out throughout the month.
To stay up to date with all the new releases throughout the week, keep them locked on our new on Netflix hub.
What to watch on Netflix this week
The Sandman (Season 1)
Coming to Netflix: Friday
Often seen as impossible to adapt, Netflix is about to release its big new Warner Bros. Television production based on the Neil Gaiman comic book series.
Here’s what we can expect from the new series:
“The story of Dream, who awakens from a 105-year slumber in captivity and sets out to restore the Dreaming Kingdom, which has thrown into chaos in his absence.”
No reviews are available for this series yet (review embargo expired on Friday – never a good sign), but with Gaiman’s blessing and a solid cast, we’re keeping our hopes high for this new DC series.
Coming to Netflix: Friday
After a delay and now bought out, Uncharted was due to hit Netflix this Friday following an updated release date for the film, which was supposed to be out in July.
The Sony film, starring Mark Wahlberg and Tom Holland, adapts the game and follows Nathan Drake and Sully as they embark on a globe-spanning adventure to find a untold fortune.
Riverdale (Season 6)
Coming to Netflix: Sunday
Love it or hate it, Riverdale continues to be one of the biggest shows on The CW, wrapping up its sixth season on the day of its release. It was a record-breaking 22-episode season, and that season also featured a Netflix character(ish) in the form of Sabrina Spellman.
Netflix outside the US streamed season 6 of Riverdale weekly, but the US will get all 22 episodes at once by the end of the week.
