What's coming to Netflix US and UK in August 2021? That's the question on everyone's lips now that we're entering the seventh (where does the time go?!) month of the year. 

The streaming service has been our saving grace this season, helping us through the pandemic by acting as the ultimate incentive thanks to its roster of top-quality content. So far, we've had everything from hit reality TV shows Bling Empire and classic movies, to a fresh batch of Netflix originals added to the platform's catalog (including one of our current faves, Who Killed Sara?)—all of which have been the perfect escapism from the slowly healing chaos of the wold. 

But while there are some classic shows and movies leaving Netflix, what can we expect this month? 

Here's a definitive list of what's new on Netflix this month, including the highlights

Coming to Netflix in August 2021: the highlights

He’s All That (2021)

Netflix's Gen Z reboot of 90s classic 'She's All That is finally dropping on the streaming service this month and naturally, we're counting down the days. Premiering on August 27, the teen romance drama stars TikTok superstar stars Addison Rae as well as Tanner Buchanan, Myra Molloy, Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, and Rachael Leigh Cook. The film is directed by Mark Waters and as the title suggests, it's a gender-swapped remake of the original and sees an influencer make a bet that she can transform an unpopular classmate into prom king. 

The Kissing Booth 3 (2021)

The popular Netflix teen drama is back for a third installment and this time, Elle (Joey King) has a tough decision to make. It’s the summer before she heads to college which means it's time to decide where she's going to go: will she move across the country to study where  Noah (her dreamy boyfriend is) or will she fulfill her lifelong promise to go to college with her BFF Lee?
