Here’s What We’re Gaining and Losing on Netflix This August


We’re reaching the second half of summer (and the last month of summer vacation), which means it’s time for Netflix gains and losses. We’re definitely getting a lot more than we’re losing, especially with the addition of new Netflix originals, including the new animated series Beat Bugs that I’ve been curious about, a Steve Aoki documentary, and much more. I’m especially interested in The Little Prince, which Netflix rescued after Paramount dropped the release.

Amongst the titles that are leaving, I’m definitely going to give A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge a rewatch (which, if you didn’t know, is a super interesting film often dubbed the “gayest horror movie ever”).
