Netflix hopes to renew your faith in its Marvel shows in August with the release of The Defenders, a miniseries that brings together Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Daredevil. OF course, that’s not the only new release for Netflix streaming subscribers. Read on for the complete list of comings and goings at Netflix in August.

This month’s Netflix lineup is a great one for fans of comic books and science fiction. The big title is The Defenders, the second Marvel Netflix series of the year. After the mixed reception Luke Cage got last fall and the overwhelmingly negative reaction from Iron Fist, the partnership between Marvel Studios and Netflix needs The Defenders to work. The show will bring together the four titular heroes from the previous shows, along with their supporting casts, to fight Sigourney Weaver’s Alexandra. Hopefully this is the last time we have to deal with The Hand.

While their Sense8 series is almost dead and will end with a two-hour finale next year, Lana and Lilly Wachowski will be well-represented on Netflix for awhile. Their film Cloud Atlas and all of The Matrix movies will be available to stream on August 1. Other movies that will be available on the first of the month include Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown, The Addams Family and Small Soldiers.

Another major Netflix original series coming this month is Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later. The series follows through with the promise of the cult original movie to meet up with its characters 10 years after that fateful summer. The film previously got a Netflix prequel series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, in 2015. For some inexplicable reason, the 2001 movie that spawned all this isn’t available to stream!

Netflix will also release the controversial Death Note on August 25. Although loosely based on a Japanese manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the film came under fire for having no Asian actors in major roles. The main star is The Fault In Our Stars actor Nat Wolff.
