Every new title coming to Netflix Canada in August

Like Father

Kelsey Grammer, Kristen Bell and Seth Rogen star in this new rom-com that mimics a Forgetting Sarah Marshall do-over. In a role reversal, Bell—who plays a workaholic executive—gets left at the altar and ends up taking her Caribbean honeymoon cruise with her estranged father. The film marks the directorial debut of Lauren Miller Rogen (yes, she’s Seth Rogen’s wife). As someone who’s had roles in Superbad and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, it’s safe to say she knows her way around a good comedy. August 3.


How to Get Away with Murder: Season 4

When the American crime thriller first aired back in 2015, it was hailed as one of the most progressive shows on television for its diversity, strong female lead and candid approach to gay sex. Four seasons later, How to Get Away with Murder has maintained its momentum. In a suspenseful third-season finale, the beloved law students of Annalise Keating (Oscar- and Tony-winning actress Viola Davis) finally find answers about Wes’s death. The newest slate of episodes take on the most dramatic plot yet, with tensions escalating as Annalise tries to recover from alcoholism and the students try to convict yet another murderer. August 22.


Matt Groening, the mastermind behind The Simpsons, is bringing a new animated series to the screen featuring gnomes, trolls, fairies and a handful of other mythical creatures. In this medieval-drama-meets-comedy hybrid, a heavy-drinking princess finds herself on (mis)adventures accompanied by a feisty elf and a demon. The series marks Groening’s first new show in nearly two decades and with a voice cast that includes Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Academy Award–winning screen writer Nat Faxon, it’s expected to be his most magical and, surprisingly, most emotional project yet. August 17.

Follow This

In partnership with BuzzFeed, the newest Netflix mini-doc series follows award-winning journalists as they report on the strangest topics the internet can churn out—from cultural phenomenons to contested social issues. In the debut episode, Canada’s own Scaachi Koul delves into autonomous sensory meridian response—a tingling sensation (or “brain orgasm”) triggered by certain sounds or visuals that sparked an eruption of  YouTube videos featuring very specific, seemingly ordinary noises. August 23.


Dexter writer Lauren Gussis’ new series has earned a title as one of Netflix’s most controversial releases. The TV dramady follows the story of a high school student (played by Disney Channel’s Debby Ryan) who, after facing years of taunting for being overweight, gets skinny and uses her “hotness” to get revenge on her bullies. Gussis has said that the story was inspired by her personal experience, but soon after the trailer launched, the plot was criticized for fat-shaming. In response, more than 200,000 people signed a petition to have the show cancelled. Netflix’s Original Series VP Cindy Holland stands by the series, emphasizing that the message is, “what is most important is that you feel comfortable in your own self.” August 10.
