It’s impossible to keep up with the hours and hours worth of shows and movies that premiere every week. Here, we highlight the new titles arriving on Netflix Canada this August to help you decide what to watch.

Wedding Season 

What’s one to do when facing constant pressure from their parents to get married? In Wedding Season, the answer for Asha (Pallavi Sharda) and Ravi (Suraj Sharma) is obvious: pretend to date each other to get through a summer’s worth of weddings with as little interference as possible.

Available: August 4

The Sandman

Fans of Neil Gaiman’s comic book series The Sandman have been waiting for an adaptation of the dark fantasy to hit screens since the ‘90s. Now, it’s finally here. The eerie follows Dream (Tom Sturridge), the ruler of a realm called the Dreaming (which can be accessed during sleep), who is imprisoned for a century. After escaping, he discovers that both the sleeping and waking dimensions have been altered, and he must travel across different worlds and timelines to restore order.

Locke & Key (Season 3)

Ontario-shot Locke & Key is coming to a close with an exhilarating third season, which finds the Locke siblings facing off against a new demonic foe who is determined to steal the magical keys their father left for them upon his passing.

Available: August 10

Day Shift

In Day Shift, Jamie Foxx stars as a blue-collar dad whose priority is providing a good life for his daughter in San Fernando Valley. That’s easier said than done when he secretly works as a vampire hunter, a profession that’s not only dangerous but quite…gross. Snoop Dogg, Dave Franco and Meagan Good also star.

Never Have I Ever (Season 3)

It’s arguably the best time of the summer: Never Have I Ever is back for season three. Canadian star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan and co. are back and thriving: Devi and her friends are all finally in relationships and loving life. But they’re soon about to realize that being partnered up involves a lot more than just hanging out with your crush.

Available: August 12

Look Both Ways

Move over, Sliding Doors, there’s a new parallel-reality movie to explore. Lili Reinhart stars in Look Both Ways as Natalie, a new college grad whose life splits into alternate paths after she takes a pregnancy test: one, in which the test comes back positive and prepares to navigate motherhood, while in the second the test is negative and she moves to L.A. to pursue her dream career.

Do identical twins actually swap places when it suits them? Well, in mystery-thriller Echoes, sisters Lina and Gina (Michelle Monaghan) do and they share everything—including their homes and husbands—without anyone else knowing. But when one of the twins goes missing, they’re at risk of losing everything they’ve built.

Available: August 19


Comedians Mo Amer and Ramy Youssef (who you’ll recognize from the acclaimed series Ramy) co-created Mo, a semi-autobiographical series inspired by Amer’s life as a Palestinian refugee growing up in Houston. Amer also stars as the titular Mo Najjar, a man who is juggling two cultures and three languages in his new American home all while navigating the complicated immigration process.

Me Time

Shenanigans ensue in Me Time when a stay-at-home dad (Kevin Hart) has some alone time for the first time in years, and takes the time to reconnect with his best friend (Mark Wahlberg)—who is, if we’re being honest, somewhat of a child himself—on a wild weekend away.
