We are in the heart of winter friends and with more rain (and lockdowns) on the way for Australia, there’s no better time to grab a blanket and crash in front of the television. Thankfully, our streaming services are here to help with that in August.

Some of the highlights this month include Nine Perfect Strangers on Amazon Prime which is next book adaptation from Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty. The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues on Disney+ with Marvel’s What If…? and the final season of The Walking Dead is hitting Binge in August.

A brand new streaming service is also coming to Australia in August (yes, another one!). Paramount+ will be available from August 11 with over 20,000 hours of content to watch. Stay tuned to Lifehacker Australia as we’ll be covering all the new movies and TV shows on the service prior to its launch.

Here’s every movie and TV show coming to Netflix, Stan, Binge, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video in August 2021.

Nine Perfect Strangers (20/8/21)

From best-selling author Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies) based on a novel by the same name,  Nine Perfect Strangers takes place at a retreat at health and wellness resort Tranquillum House which promises total transformation. In this eight-part limited series, nine stressed city dwellers with vastly different backgrounds from romance novelist Francis, former NFL star Tony, journalist Lars, high school teacher Napoleon and Instagram influencer Jessica are keen to drop their literal and mental baggage. Their issues are very different, but Masha Dmitrichenko, the resort director (played by Nicole Kidman), is convinced that her unconventional interventions – the details of which the guests are largely unaware – will successfully cure them. 

Modern Love – Season 2 (13/8/21)

The Amazon Original Anthology Series Modern Love returns for season two with another impressively star-studded cast and new stories of love and relationships in all their complexities and beauty, inspired by The New York Times column of the same name.
