New on Netflix August 18-24: Another week to catch-up on your backlog

, ,

Here we are with another week and, as usual, Netflix is adding a few new shows and movies between August 18-24th. You can also check out what’s leaving Netflix and Netflix Canada in August if you want to binge those first.

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

NOTE: Titles without a 🇺🇸 or 🇨🇦 designation after them are coming to both countries, while country-specific titles will be indicated as such.


Without further ado, let’s check out the New on Netflix August 18-24th list which doesn’t have a whole lot of new enticing shows so it’s a great week to play catch-up. This week’s best bet is the 2015 movie The Big Short.

  • Untold: Swamp Kings (NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY (New UNTOLD stories weekly)): College football is life in Florida, nowhere more apparent than in the extraordinary story of the Florida Gators from 2005 to 2010. After a blazing run in the 1990s under Coach Steve Spurrier, the University of Florida’s winning streak had dried up by 2005. Enter Urban Meyer, the Gators’ demanding new head coach whose take-no-prisoners style breeds not only a string of legendary victories, but also unrelenting drama that rippled well beyond the locker room. In their own words through extensive sit-down interviews paired with archival footage, Meyer and the titans he coached (Brandon Siler, Tim Tebow, Brandon Spikes, Major Wright, and Ahmad Black, among many others) give viewers a bird’s-eye view of how they catapulted the Florida Gators from underdogs to winners of two BCS National Championships. Drilling down with a riveting play-by-play of some of the Gators’ most blistering wins and losses, this four-episode docuseries zooms in on each turbulent year of Meyer’s reign and isn’t afraid to tackle the challenging sides of his leadership and the perils of his players being star athletes at such a young age.
