Everything coming to Netflix in August 2020 — and what’s leaving

While Netflix still has dozens of original series, specials and movies on tap for August 2020, barely a handful have mass appeal.

The most promising of the bunch are Season 5 of “Lucifer” (Aug. 21), the cult favorite that Netflix rescued from Fox about a bored devil who works with the LAPD as a side hustle; “Hoops” (Aug. 21), an animated comedy about a foul-mouthed high school basketball coach, with voice work from Jake Johnson and Ron Funches; and “Project Power,” (Aug. 14), a blockbuster-ish action movie about a pill that gives people superpowers for 5 minutes at a time, starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Other notable additions include new seasons of international series such as Denmark’s post-apocalyptic drama “Rain” (Aug. 6), Spain’s period drama “High Seas” (Aug. 7), and Brazil’s dystopian thriller “3%” (Aug. 14); the new documentary series “Immigration Nation” (Aug. 3); and a new season of the real-estate reality show “Selling Sunset” (Aug. 7).

One quirky programming note: Netflix is adding both seasons of YouTube Red’s “Karate Kid” spinoff “Cobra Kai” (Aug. 28), but losing the first three “Karate Kid” movies on Aug. 31.
