9 New Releases To Watch On Netflix This August

1 / 9

Derry Girls

Now Airing

Derry Girls was without doubt one of our favourite comedy debuts of 2018, so we’re thrilled that the girls (and James!) are back for more. For the uninitiated, the series follows the lives of Erin and her friends as they navigate teenage life in 1990s Northern Ireland. Don’t let the political turmoil of the era fool you, this sitcom is packed full of hilarity and laughs aplenty.

Dear White People: Volume 3

Now Airing

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university, this satirical series – which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film of the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of colour as they look for ways to tackle the racial tensions and social injustice that plague “post-racial” America today. Though it sounds like heavy viewing, sharp wit and biting irony make this a fun watch packed with wry humour.

Comedy meets politics in Hasan Minhaj’s Patriot Act. Join Hasan as he comments on today’s modern cultural and political landscape using his unique comedic voice and storytelling skills. A must-watch for any fans of The Daily Show.

Wu Assassins

Airs On: Thursday, 8 August

Hong Kong represent! New Netflix original Wu Assassins is directed by our very own Stephen Fung, and promises supernatural mystique matched with high danger thrills. The series follows Kai Jin, a young Chinatown chef in present day San Francisco, as he becomes entangled with the Chinese Triad’s pursuit of deadly ancient powers known as the “Wu Xing”. After an encounter with a mystical spirit, Kai reluctantly becomes the Wu Assassin and is forced to use his enhanced martial arts skills to recover supernatural powers from five modern day criminals who are threatening to destroy the world.
