A new month means a new crop of licensed and original movies and shows arriving on Netflix, which helps take the sting out of saying farewell to many others. Below, see the full list of titles hitting Netflix starting on the 1st of the month, but first, let's take a quick tour through the highlights.

If you seek a new TV show to binge, Netflix has some intense options in August. We highly recommend Clickbait, a perfectly ludicrious and absolutely binge-friendly limited series about a man (Adrian Grenier) who suddenly disappears and turns up as a hostage in a viral video that reveals a dark secret that disrupts the lives of his sister (Zoe Kazan) and wife (Betty Gabriel). We're also excited to check out Brand New Cherry Flavor, an adaptation of Todd Grimson's horror novel about an aspiring filmmaker (played by Rosa Salazar) who moves to Hollywood and gets wrapped up in the occult. On the movie thriller front, Netflix originals Beckett (starring John David Washington) and Sweet Girl (starring Jason Momoa) premiere.

For those looking for something more light-hearted, try The Chair, a new dramedy written by Amanda Peet and produced by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss that stars Sandra Oh as a single mother newly installed as the head of a college English department. Also: Paris Hilton's now has her own cooking show, and 30 Rock and Friday Night Lights hit the platform, as do the movie classics Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Magnolia, and The Net. Happy streaming.
