With many of us currently working from home and the latest social distancing rules stopping us from visiting our favourite restaurants, parks and beaches, we're turning to Netflix to keep us entertained this August. The streaming platform has plenty of new shows coming this month––from the latest Korean dramas, sci-fi documentaries, true crime series and nature shows––along with the second season of the superhero hit Umbrella Academy.
1. Umbrella Academy: Season 2
A second season of the popular superhero series is set to be released on Netflix today (July 31). After the estranged superhero siblings reunited in season one to uncover the truths of their family history and extraordinary powers, season two sees all of the Hargreeves kids back in action––and back in the 1960s after the fallout at the end of season one.
Netflix confirmed that season one of Umbrella Academy was the third most popular TV series on Netflix in 2019, so we're sure that season two will be just as binge-worthy.
Release date: July 31
