The most exciting things coming to Netflix Australia in August 2018

Burn your social calendar for the next month. Just light it on fire.

There's a LOT of content on Netflix.

So much that you can spend the amount of time it takes to watch a feature-length film just scrolling. Endlessly scrolling.

It's tough out there, so we've done the perusing for you and simply highlighted a few new arrivals you're going to want to watch on Netflix this August.

You will watch them, and you will enjoy it. That's a promise, not a threat.

1. Orange is the New Black season six

If you haven't watched Orange is the New Black seasons one to five, WAKE UP FROM YOUR CULTURE NAP.

It's brilliant and female-focused and very binge-able and the time to start is now because there are a whole lot of fresh new eps coming your way.

Season six sees our favourite inmates thrown into maximum security prison following a wild riot. Read: Shit's about to go down.

2. 'Like Father'

Kristen Bell stars in this original Netflix movie about a workaholic who gets left at the altar and ends up having to go on her honeymoon with her estranged dad, who is played by Kelsey Grammer.

It's written by Lauren Miller Rogen, who just so happens to be married to Seth Rogen, who also stars in the film as Bell's love interest.

Given the fact anything Kristen and Rogen touch tends to turn to comedy gold, you can count us in for this one.

3. The House Bunny

This classic chick flick stars Anna Faris as a Playboy bunny who gets kicked out of Hugh Hefner's mansion and seeks solace in a college sorority house.

Just in case anyone needed a reminder that Anna don't need no Chris Pratt to be a Hollywood mega-star, watch this and bask in her flawless comedic timing.

4. To All The Boys I've Loved Before

Netflix has been hitting home runs with young adult movies for months now. Don't agree? Watch The Kissing Booth and call me back.

This one is adapted from a bestselling book of the same name about a girl who has every love letter she's ever written mysteriously mailed out to their intended recipients without her consent.

Look, it sounds like our teenage nightmare but we'll happily watch someone else go through it, especially when it's talented up-and-comer Lana Condor.

If you're not a "young adult", DW, neither are we. It's okay to watch content aimed at those below your official age group. In fact, it's encouraged.

5. The Innocents

Here to fill that Stranger Things-sized hole in your chest is The Innocents.

The new series follows lovestruck teenagers Harry and June who run away from their controlling families so they can together, before discovering June can shape-shift.

Eleven 2.0, anyone?

Then a "mysterious professor" played by Australian actor Guy Pearce (STRAYA) tells June she's not alone and she and Harry's relationship gets pushed to the limit.

We love us a supernatural love story. Or any love story really.

Binge away. Just remember to eat and occasionally call your mum between eps.
