It’s a month for love, with Heartstopper: Season 2 leading things on Netflix for August. And for those looking for something a little less about love but still with a heart somewhere involved, Heart of Stone is a new Netflix original film starring Gal Gadot coming to the streaming service this month.

Other things to look forward to this month include One Piece right at the end of the month, another anime adaptation that may or may not break the curse of anime adaptations at Netflix. Plus, there’s Fisk, not a new series, but an Australian one filmed in Melbourne that’s worth checking out.

Check out the list of movies, series and specials coming to Netflix Australia below. Let me know in the comment section which ones you are excited to watch.
