The end of summer is usually a time when things wind down, but August is likely to be a banner month for Netflix. We'll finally find out what happens to the ragtag crew of professional female wrestlers in Las Vegas with a new season of GLOW. A sophomore season of Derry Girls, the rollicking comedy about a gang of high school girls growing up in conflict-ridden Northern Ireland, will also drop this month. New seasons of Dear White People and Mindhunter -- also Netflix Originals -- will debut in August.

Viewers will return to the world of Thra in Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a star-studded prequel series to the classic by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. The ten-episode series will include talents like Mark Hamill, Eddie Izzard, Helena Bonham Carter, Keegan-Michael Key, Simon Pegg and Andy Samberg. The show will star Taron Egerton (Rocketman), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones) taking on the trio of Gelflings Rian, Brea and Deet.

The dog days of summer will have plenty of laughs in store, thanks to comedy specials from Tiffany Haddish and Simon Amstell. Meanwhile, Marlon Wayans will play six different roles in Sextuplets, a Netflix feature film that will also include Molly Shannon and Bresha Webb.

Also new in August is a timely array of action flicks and thrillers, including all the Rocky films, Jackie Brown and Gangs of New York. Fans of romantic comedies will enjoy Four Weddings and a Funeral, the latest season of Jane the Virgin, Why Do Fools Fall in Love and the Sex and the City movie.
