It's almost August already, and you know what that means, time is running out to get out and enjoy the remaining months of 2017!

Hahaha, just kidding. It means new TV and movies to stream on Netflix, Stan and Amazon Prime Video.

While Stan continues to bring weekly joy in the form of 'Younger', 'Preacher', 'Twin Peaks', 'I'm Dying Up Here' and 'Power', August is also the month where their newest original series 'The Other Guy' is launching.

For 'Drag Race' fans, Stan has also dug into the archives to bring both seasons of 'All Stars' available, as well as adding the first season of 'Not Today Bianca' on the 18th, a series that follows the winner of season six as she attempts to make it big in Hollywood.

Netflix is busy dropping some huge shows with Marvel's 'The Defenders' arriving on the 18th, and if those four aren't enough superhero for you, over on Prime Video part one of the first season of 'The Tick' arrives on the 25th.

Meanwhile it's a flash forward backward with the newest star-studded installment of the 'Wet Hot' series, 'Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later'.

Netflix is also releasing the first season of 'Atypical', a series that follows an 18-year-old student on the autism spectrum who decides it's time to get a girlfriend, which sends his whole family into a spin.

For Stephen King fans, the first season of the TV adaptaion of 'The Mist' will also roll onto Netflix later in the month on the 25th, on the same day part one of Kathy Bates' 'Disjointed' sees her as the owner of a cannabis dispensary, constantly clouded in a very different kind of mist if you know what we mean.
