Here is the full list of new releases coming to Netflix in August, including Marvel’s The Defenders and Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later.

If you’ve already binge-watched the latest additions to Netflix in July, then you’re going to want to check out what’s coming to the streaming service in August. After you finish Last Chance U and Ozark, two of the best additions in July, you have a number of options to decide what will be your next Netflix addiction.

The list of Netflix new releases for August is headlined by Marvel’s The Defenders, coming on Aug. 18. The series is the culmination of years of work by Marvel and Netflix and sees Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist team up to fight against a growing criminal element in Hell’s Kitchen. Each of those four superheroes has had their own season but this is the first time fans will get to see all four of them together on the same screen. The eight-episode series will be a show you need to binge-watch as soon as it’s released, but it’s far from the only binge-worthy new release coming in August.

Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later premieres on Aug. 4 as the gang from Camp Firewood reunites. Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Michael Showalter, Janeane Garofalo and Ken Marino are just some of the star-studded cast that will reprise their roles for the upcoming series that is sure to deliver plenty of laughs.

As always, there is plenty of new stand-up coming this month with Maz Jobrani, Lynne Koplitz and Ryan Hamilton debut new specials and Brad Paisley hosts a special comedy rodeo. Death Note, Atypical and Icarus are three other Netflix Originals worth adding to your watch list.
