Netflix is sending off August with a final round of new additions to its streaming library this weekend. Beginning on Friday, Aug. 28, the streamer will be stocking four new titles for subscribers to enjoy, marking some of the last additions of the month.
Although this weekend is relatively light on new additions, the four titles, which will be joined by two others on Monday, Aug. 31, are leading up to dozens of new additions set to begin being added to the streamer on Tuesday, Sept. 1. September will prove to be a massive month for original content. When Netflix unveiled its list of September 2020 additions, there were a total of 64 original series, films, and specials, including some highly-anticipated titles.

'All Together Now'
Netflix will kickoff the weekend with the debut of its newest film, All Together Now. Set to premiere on Friday. Aug. 28, the film follows optimist Amber Appleton, a musically gifted high school student with aspirations to attend Carnegie Mellon. Balancing life as a teenager, including her high school drama club helmed by Mr. Franks, working long hours at a donut shop to help support herself and her down-on-her-luck single mom, and spending time at the local retirement community, giving care and attention to her favorite pessimistic resident, new obstacles will force her to lean on the strength of her chosen family to move forward.prevnext
'Cobra Kai: Seasons 1-2'
After exclusively streaming on YouTube for its first two seasons, Cobra Kai is making its Netflix debut on Friday. Set 30 years after the events of The Karate Kid, the series is told from the perspective of Johnny Lawrence, who's been down-and-out since that fateful All Valley Karate Tournament in 1984. The rivalry between him and the now-successful Daniel LaRusso is reignited, with Daniel forced to handle it without the calm, guiding hand of Mr. Miyagi.prevnext
