Streaming

All the movies and TV shows coming to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime in August 2021

This month's streaming highlights include a murder-mystery series featuring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez.

“Only Murders In The Building” follows three strangers (Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez) who share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one. Craig Blankenhorn/Hulu

With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looking closely at the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant and Massachusetts officials issuing an updated face covering advisory, some residents may be searching for streaming options instead of heading to the theaters this weekend.

Thankfully, August looks like another great month for streaming, as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime will offer plenty of new releases.

Here’s the complete lineup of new movies and TV shows arriving on the four platforms in August 2021. If you want a more curated guide, be sure to check out our list of the 10 best movies and TV shows to stream right now. And if you’re looking to head to the theaters this weekend instead, be sure to check out our summer movie guide for information on the biggest blockbusters of the season.
