Somehow August is almost here, which means the summer is wrapping up, and that’s absolutely devastating. But it’s OK because Netflix is here to help with a set of new releases to settle our summer separation anxiety.

Comedy is thriving this month on the streaming platform with the return of series like Dear White People and Glow. You can watch Angela Bassett, Patricia Arquette and Felicity Huffman play three best friends struggling as empty nesters who still want to smother their adult sons in the film Otherhood. Toward the middle of the month, more comedy continues with Tiffany Haddish‘s comedy special Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready. If you’re in the mood for some good ol’ emotional nostalgia, Now and Then will fulfill all of those needs. And for those of you who are curious about the preparation that’s required to dress A-listers or furnish their homes, you can watch stylist Jason Bolden and his husband Adair Curtis, an interior designer, work their magic in Styling Hollywood.

Per usual, we’ll have to say our goodbyes to some titles, including the sweet rom-com A Cinderella Story, starring Hilary Duff and Chad Michael Murray. Both Hairspray musicals from 1988 and 2007 will also be leaving, so start watching now before they’re gone.

Keep scrolling to see the releases we’re most excited for below, as well as the full list of everything to watch this month.
