I’ll be honest – content for August feels a little light. We’re really sinking into that awkward transition time between “summer blockbuster season” and “peak fall TV.” (Plus, with the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, we’re unlikely to arrive at “peak fall TV” at all this year.) Still, we do have a few titles debuting this month worth keeping an eye on.

In August, you can hit the theater for TMNT: Mutant Mayhem, DC’s Blue Beetle, and The Meg 2. Or kick back on the couch for some popular TV returns, like Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building, Netflix’s Heartstopper, FX’s Reservation Dogs, and Showtime’s Billions.
