A Netflix subscription can be the key to many sorts of thrills. Much like its competitors, the big red streamer is bringing in some big guns for August 2022. The Looney Tunes are going to play the basketball game of their lives, James Bond will defend his boss from a madman, and the Men in Black are the last, best line of defense against three movies worth of universal scum. Also, Neil Gaiman’s classic The Sandman is finally debuting its live-action series adaptation. 

It’s a lot to catch up with, to be sure, and you’ll want to be prepared. The July 2022 Netflix lineup is still available should you want to make sure you haven’t missed anything. When you’re ready to jump into what awaits in the month to come, return to this spot! Because now it’s time to see what’s coming to Netflix in August 2022.

If you can’t do a job with a buddy, is it a job worth doing? The Men in Black aren’t the only partners having fun at work in Netflix’s August 2022 lineup, as the underrated crime comedy The Nice Guys has Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe rooting out some shady dealings in ‘70s Los Angeles. 

Or, if you’re looking for a more contemporary caper, Day Shift teams Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dogg against another problem in the city of angels: vampires. Careful though: blink and you might miss Locke & Key's third and final season bringing things to a proper close.
