Whilst in lockdown I’ve spent way too much time scrolling through Netflix to find something worthwhile to watch. If you a Netflix enthusiast like myself here are some new shows that New to Netflix this August.
Although, I have been rewatching a few old favourites. I have been craving some new series I can get lost in. Netflix normally releases new shows every month, especially if you like me and end up watching so many of it. I always need new shows to keep myself entertained.
Here’s what you can look forward to from Netflix this August…
Selling Sunset (Season 3)
