Netflix Canada "Originals" August 2017 Movie & TV Shows Announced

Every month, we release our big giant list of all the new shows and movies that will be added to Netflix. But Netflix doesn't keep shows online forever, so eventually some of them are taken off the site, never to be seen again.

Luckily, Netflix always has some amazing original movies and TV shows ready to take their place. Last month the big announcement was about Ozark and since then everyone's been binge watching it. And now it's time to find a new series to get hooked on. My bet is on Disjointed. 

Here are all the new Netflix Originals you have to look forward to this month.
