Here's Everything Coming To UK Netflix In August


From blistering heat to thunderstorms, the British summer is behaving more unpredictably than ever. Thankfully, Netflix will continue to deliver the goods well into August.

Original content coming this month includes a new season of fierce female-led comedy GLOW, the Christina Milian romcom Falling Inn Love, and flashy-looking fantasy series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. We're also super-excited to see Styling Hollywood, an insight into the glamorous work of an L.A. celebrity stylist and his interior decorator husband.
