Everything coming to Netflix in August 2023

ONE PIECE | Official Trailer | Netflix

Even though streamers like Peacock and Prime Video have ramped up their content libraries this summer, Netflix continues to be the primary destination for streaming movies and TV shows. With recent hit shows like FUBAR, Never Have I Ever, and The Witcher season 3, plus blockbuster movies like The Out-Laws and the comedy We’re the Millers, Netflix still dominates the streaming landscape like no other.

The party is set to continue with Netflix’s August 2023 programming schedule, which includes the debut of the anime adaptation One Piece and the action thriller Heart of Stone with Gal Gadot. In addition, legacy films like The Fast and the Furious movies will be racing to Netflix in August. Check the list below for everything that is coming to Netflix in August 2023.

August 1

Untold: Volume 3

The critically acclaimed docuseries Untold returns with Volume 3, a four-week summer event that pulls back the curtain on epic tales from the wide (and wild) world of sports. From boxing to football to doping scandals, these new stories go well beyond the headlines and upend what we thought we knew. Premiering weekly, each character-driven story hinges on candid, intimate first-person accounts from those who lived it.

Untold: Jake Paul the Problem Child

At 26, is Jake Paul the boxing world’s new savior or a “delusional” promoter who packs more punch in his marketing skills than in his right hand? It depends on whom you ask in Untold: Jake Paul the Problem Child, an unflinching deep dive into how a wide-eyed kid from Ohio morphed from internet sensation to most polarizing man in sports. For every high-profile critic (UFC president Dana White), there’s another supporter in his corner (former professional boxer Mike Tyson). In 2013, Jake and his older brother, Logan, lit up social media with pranks and antics posted first to Vine and then a YouTube channel that racked up millions of views.

The brothers parlayed their online success into lucrative side hustles, with Jake releasing music and landing a role on a Disney Channel show (Bizaardvark). As their notoriety grew, so did tensions between the once-close siblings. When Jake’s real-life controversies nearly ruined his career, he got a second chance as a boxer who shocked skeptics as he knocked out one opponent after another. Built on gripping interviews with the Paul brothers – along with their parents, fans, fellow boxers, and the skeptical old guard – the film culminates with a nail-biting match that will prove if Jake has what it takes to rule his new kingdom.

Like the Netflix hit series Baby Reindeer? Then watch these 3 great shows now
Richard Gadd in Baby Reindeer sitting on a bus with a yellow coat staring forward, the image of deer ears on either side of him.

Netflix’s smash-hit series Baby Reindeer is a mind-blowing true story about Scottish comedian Richard Gadd, who was relentlessly stalked by a woman for years. In the process of telling his story, it also reveals a traumatic event that occurred in his past. The underlying themes in the series hit hard, but it's also a cathartic story of damaged self-worth, loneliness, ambition, desperation, assault, and a system that often fails people.

Chances are you have probably already powered your way through the seven episodes of the black-comedy drama thriller. If you’re looking for something else to satiate your appetite while processing the disturbingly good show, put these three series on your radar to tackle next.
