Recently, Netflix discovered itself in a perilous situation. As a result of reports that the streaming service lost 1 million subscribers in the past three months—a sharp increase from the significant losses it suffered in the first quarter of this year—the key question now is how Netflix will adjust. Stranger Things season 4 volume 2 seems to have failed in its attempt to sway general viewers despite breaking numerous streaming records.
Additionally, Netflix executives have stated their ambition to start their own huge franchises, comparable to Disney+’s MCU and Star Wars slate, which would undoubtedly retain customers’ attention. There are still several shows to be excited about even though the platform is still working through some hiccups. The top TV shows that will premiere on Netflix in August 2022 are listed below.
Never Have I Ever Season 3 from August 12
Never Have I Ever is a coming-of-age drama that debuted in 2020 and received praise for its South Asian representation in Hollywood. The story centers on an Indian-American high school student who must cope with her father’s unexpected death. Devi, the main character, suffers from psychological stress that causes her to lose feeling in her legs and renders her immobile for several months.
She is forced to deal with her identity, her grief, and her school life when she is finally able to walk. The series’ seamless use of the multilingual theme gives viewers something to identify with. The next third season of Never Have I Ever will be its final one, according to The Hollywood Reporter, making it all the more intriguing.
