It stars the likes of Revathy, Suriya, Parvathy, Aditi Balan, Vijay Sethupathy, Arvind Swamy, Siddarth, and Yogi Babu. And we have directors such as Gautham Menon, K.V. Anand, and Karthick Naren. The other title is reality competition series Comedy Premium League, premiering August 20 and featuring Rohan Joshi, Tanmay Bhat, Amit Tandon, Mallika Dua, Kenny Sebastian, Kaneez Surka, Sumukhi Suresh and Prajakta Koli among others. The third non-original Indian title is docuseries A Big Little Murder (out August 6) about the truth behind the brutal 2017 murder of a young Indian schoolboy.

From F9 to The Suicide Squad, What to Watch in August

Outside fiction in August, Netflix has a Paris Hilton cooking series — which is exactly like what you would expect. Cooking with Paris fires up August 4 on Netflix. At the very end of the month on August 31, organising-obsessed celebrity Marie Kondo returns with a new series, Sparking Joy, where she will help others and share her organised world too. And then there’s the sports docuseries Untold, with four feature-length episodes devoted to Olympic winner Caitlyn Jenner, world champion boxer Christy Martin, the 2004 Pacers-Pistons brawl, and the mob boss of a hockey team Jimmy Galante. Untold will air over four consecutive Saturdays on Netflix, on August 10, 17, 24, and 31.

In the animated department, The Witcher universe expands with an adult anime prequel film in The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, streaming August 23. For kids, the spin-off animated series Fast & Furious Spy Racers heads to South Pacific for its fifth season on August 13. On the same day, Netflix India will also add Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw — in the same month as F9 coming to Indian cinemas.

Speaking of licensed content, J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek reboot and Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim arrive August 1 on Netflix, alongside Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, Oscar-winning The Bridge on the River Kwai, and the Emmy-winning doc Apollo 11. On Independence Day, Netflix will get all seasons of Downton Abbey (already on Prime Video). Gemini Man with two Will Smiths shoots in August 22. And lastly, there’s more Keeping Up with the Kardashians on August 17.
