Netflix: What's Coming Out in August 2021

Is Netflix n’ Chilling part of your plans these coming weeks? It’s certainly part of ours, and with good reason. There’s so much fresh, well-produced content to look forward to (as tempted as many are to rewatch The Queen’s Gambit and petition for a second act) that honestly, it’s quite hard to imagine a world without Netflix anymore.

Here's what we'll be watching on our Sentrym L1 projector on Netflix next month when we're out and about. Have your calendars ready, because it's going to be a good one!

"Beckett" - Netflix Film (August 13th)

This would be one of the most anticipated thrillers Netflix has lined up this summer. Directed by Ferdinando Cito Filomarino, an American couple in Greece find their vacation quickly turning into their worst nightmare when Beckett (John David Washington) becomes the target of a manhunt following a tragic accident.

Faced with no other choice, Beckett tirelessly runs for his life, desperately making his way across the country so he can reach the U.S. embassy and get his name cleared. In the movie, tensions rise as political unrest mounts and authorities close in on Beckett. Eventually, he gets more caught up and falls deeper into a web of conspiracy at the hands of dangerous perpetrators. This one’s a popcorn choice, no doubt.

"The Chair" (Season 1) - Netflix Series (August 20th)

This upcoming dramatic comedy series is the brainchild of Amanda Peet and Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss. It stars Grey’s Anatomy actress Sandra Oh, who also works as executive producer on the show.

While not much has been given away about this series, we know that Oh’s character Ji-Yoon has been appointed the Chair of the English department at Pembroke University. Naturally, this comes with a fair share of challenges as not only is she the first woman given that role, but she has to navigate it as an Asian woman – and as one of the few staff members of color at a very prestigious school. That being said, it is a dramedy, so we’ll be in for some laughs as the show progresses.

"Control Z" (Season 2) - Netflix Series (August 4th)

With the first season becoming an instant hit, “Control Z” returns with more drama that’s surely going to make an impact. For those not familiar, this is a Spanish-language series based in Mexico, and it mainly takes place in a high school.

Throughout the show, an unidentified hacker starts to release secrets of everyone in the community, which causes students to turn against one another. Sofía is one of the leading characters working to uncover the hacker’s identity, and as Season 1 ends with all the secrets getting out, you’d expect a heightened level of drama and conflict in Season 2.

Directed by Mark Waters, the new movie has the two leading roles reversed, with Tanner Buchanan (Cobra Kai) undergoing a drastic, high school makeover by a female classmate, portrayed by TikTok personality Addison Rae.

Written by R. Lee Fleming Jr, the movie employs a gender swap of the original film, with the girl Padgett being a popular high-school influencer who aims to make a nerdy, unattractive guy the next Prom King.

But she’ll be portraying someone completely different – Padgett’s “wise and caring mother.”

With that role, he will be able to contact the king of spirits and reshape the world.

Can he accomplish his mission while protecting the only family he’s got left?

"Top Secret UFO Projects: Declassified" (Season 1) - Netflix Series (August 3rd)

How’s this for an eerie series to binge-watch? “Top Secret UFO Projects: Declassified” aims to inform, educate, and delve deeper into the belief that aliens are existing on our planet at this very moment – and that any knowledge of this has been withheld for years and covered up by the government. Just how convinced of extraterrestrial lifeforms are the makers of this series? Quite so, if we’re judging by the trailer alone. It gives viewers a peek at some of the jaw-dropping footage that supposedly proves aliens are real. Things that the footage makes out include mysterious objects in the skies and unfamiliar, large-eyed figures roaming the desert. If fear of the unknown applies to you, watch at your own risk.
