What to Watch August 2021

What to Watch August 2021

August is shining like a new dime when it comes to good options on streaming and TV! Some big things are dropping, like The Suicide Squad, Cruella (finally included at no additional fee for Disney Plus subscribers), Nine Perfect Strangers (based on the excellent book by Liane Moriarty), and The Chair (starring Sandra Oh, so that's an automatic watch). 

But I'm really revved up for some shows that aren't as well known, like season 2 of the animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks on Paramount Plus, season 2 of Five Bedrooms (if you haven't heard of this Peacock show plucked from Australia, give it a go!), and season 2 of the hilarious New Zealand import Wellington Paranormal (S2 is coming to the CW, while S1 can be found on HBO Max). 

As always, I've compiled a list of shows I'd like to see that are coming soon, and I'm sharing it here along with links to everything coming to streaming services so you can go through and pick your own must-watch viewing. And away we go!
