New On Netflix August 2021: 'Friday Night Lights,' 'The Chair' And More

The streaming service announced the movies and shows arriving soon.

Great news for fans of Liz Lemon and Tim Riggins: Netflix is due to add at least 100 titles in August, including all seven seasons of “30 Rock” and the full five seasons of “Friday Night Lights.”

The streaming platform will also be premiering a number of original shows next month. “The Chair” stars Sandra Oh as the newly appointed head of a failing English department at a major university.

“Bake Squad” is a dessert competition show featuring expert bakers selected by Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi. And Paris Hilton is getting her own cooking show, “Cooking With Paris.”

As for films, the new gender-swapped remake of “She’s All That” (unsurprisingly titled “He’s All That”) will premiere on Netflix on August 27, and the John David Washington thriller “Beckett” debuts on August 13.

Notable non-Netflix movies joining the platform next month include “Inception,” “Magnolia” and “Catch Me If You Can.”
