It’s that time of the month again when Netflix begins to phase out a portion of TV shows and movies from its collection. While we’re sad to see them go, thankfully, the streaming service has a lineup of new content to replace the old.

Whether you’re looking for the best Netflix shows starring people over 50 or just can’t decide what to watch, the streaming service is constantly refreshing its selection for viewers. Unfortunately, that sometimes means that our favorite TV shows and movies are removed. We listed the shows leaving and coming to Netflix starting in August so you can plan ahead and watch some of your favorites one last time before they’re gone.
