The summer heat is giving viewers plenty of reasons to stay inside — and stay cool — this summer, and Hulu is locked and loaded for August. The streaming site has an impressive list of new offerings this month, from award-winning original series to critically acclaimed movies. Here are some of the highlights, as well as a full list of what’s new this month.

This August is light on noteworthy TV offerings, but heavy on classic movies you can catch up on or rewatch just for nostalgia’s sake. The most binge-worthy addition to Hulu’s slate this month is season 3 of Issa Rae’s award-winning comedy series Insecure, but anyone who likes their comedy with more supernatural elements can be excited about the second season of Stan Against Evil.

On the movie side, Hulu offers a pretty great double-feature opportunity with Get Shorty and Be Cool both available August 1. There’s also the entire sci-fi horror Species franchise, which sees all three films join the streaming service. Acclaimed military dramas Black Hawk Down and The Hurt Locker also make their way to Hulu this month, along with the franchise-spawning sci-fi classic The Terminator.

A pair of notable documentaries also enter the rotation, with Hulu’s original documentary Crime + Punishment chronicling the efforts of police whistleblowers in New York City, and acclaimed documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi exploring the life and mind of its titular culinary master.

Our top picks for August

‘Insecure’ Season 3

Fresh off being named one of the ten best shows of 2017 by the American Film Institute (among a long list of other accolades), Insecure returns with a season that has Issa (Issa Rae) facing some significant turning points in her life that will force her to make a decision about what she wants out of life, who she wants, and the company she keeps. Insecure is one of the most well-received series in recent years, and it isn’t showing any signs of losing its wit and appeal in season 3.

‘Get Shorty’ and ‘Be Cool’

The 1995 comedy Get Shorty and it’s sequel, 2005’s Be Cool, are both based on Elmore Leonard’s novels of the same names, and follow a smooth-talking Miami loan shark played by John Travolta who decides to get into the movie business. Although Get Shorty is the better of the two films, BE Cool features an early, scene-stealing performance from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who also happens to have hair in the film. (No, really!)

‘Crime + Punishment’

August 24 brings the critically praised Hulu original documentary Crime + Punishment, which follows a group of whistleblowers in the New York Police Department who challenge illegal quota policies that remain in effect in the department.

August will also be your last chance to watch a variety of movies before they leave Hulu. Be sure to catch films like ClueHellboy, and Trainspotting before they disappear.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of August, and everything going away.
