On the small screen, traditionally speaking of series, August is the month of dusting archives and reruns. Streaming, on the other hand, is a party watch avidly new episodes of the series … already known. Something similar to what happens on TV, but completely different. Already because if the new series for the opening can be counted on the fingers, then those that return with the second, third, sometimes last season and are cool series, there are many of them. So much so that you have to get lost in a sea of (too much?) emotions. So here are the new (seasonal) shows we love, and the ones with new title launches to splurge on for the following evenings (and sultry/stormy days).
SERIES TO START
Ahsokathe only big novelty in a galaxy far, far away
A serialized live-action version of the story of an “exiled” Jedi heroine who fights a mysterious new threat after the fall of the Empire, along with The Mandalorianproof that it wasn’t so wrong to adapt and blow up the epic star Wars on the small screen and in serial products.

Okay, potentially the most anticipated game of the month, but… did the latest trailer really convince us?
This is the life we want to see crew one piece in the flesh (very stretchy for some, for others), but we know how it works with three-quarters of these transpositions. The fear of another disappointment is very high. Say we keep it in line with superstition

Much more than a romantic comedy Heart plugs 2
A year ago, he reimagined the coming-of-age story and introduced a new and fresh story in a panorama of (always too few) queer series. The second season is always a good challenge, and even more so after debuting with a bang.

If you never saw her but this year you loved Meet the Chippendales or wellmaniait’s time to bring it back. physical travels two floors, like Olivia Newton-John’s almost eponymous song used in the film Eros, Dramedee and Aerobics. Ideal. And this final season seems to have something of a rivalry Shine.
This story of climbing to fitness empyreans with an empire of choreographed workout videos is both interesting and addictive.

Bear 2because we lack knives, stoves and just right salty drama
The story of a young (but actually very stressful) professional chef who drops everything to revive the fortunes of the family’s sandwich shop after his brother’s death takes everyone by storm.
