Catch Grey's Anatomy’s Sandra Oh in The Chair on Netflix, as the highly-anticipated Only Murders in the Building drops on Disney+

Whether you’re into insightful documentaries or compelling dramas, this month, streaming platforms are offering new and fascinating shows sure to leave you on a binge. Here are five must-watch shows and TV series coming to Netflix, HBO and Disney+ this August.
 

The Chair
 

Grey’s Anatomy alumna Sandra Oh has clinched a new role in an already highly-raved academic dramedy dropping Aug 20 on Netflix. Titled The Chair, the series will see Oh as Ji-Yoon, the first woman of colour to head a failing English department at the fictional Pembroke College.
 

Fboy Island
 

Here’s a brand new reality dating series to binge, but be warned that Fboy Island is more Love Island than Love is Blind, if anything. Hosted by the hilarious Nikki Glaser, the series will follow three women as they move to a tropical island where they are joined by 24 men—12 “nice guys” and 12 “f*ck boys”. Together, the women will navigate the dating pool and answer two age-old questions: can men change and do nice guys finish last?

Out now, the final four episodes will air Aug 19 on HBO Go.
 

Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted season 3
 

If you fancy yourself a gourmand and shows like Cooking with Paris just don’t do it for you, then you’re in luck. ‘Cause Gordon Ramsay is back with a brand new season of Uncharted, where the celebrity chef will delve into Portuguese cuisine, explore Puerto Rico and go head-to-head with Chef Kim Mikkola in a riverside cook-off. Self-proclaimed foodies will not want to miss the latest season, now streaming on Disney+.
 

Memories of a Murderer Nilsen Tapes
 

Those with a penchant for true crime documentaries may take interest in Netflix’s all-new series, Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes. Created by the team behind the hit show Don’t F*ck with Cats, the new limited series profiles one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers, Dennis Nilsen. Seemingly similar to Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, The Nilsen Tapes will feature unheard audio tapes and recordings by Nilsen himself.

Taking viewers into the twisted mind of Nilsen, audiences will be offered some truth about the killer who was once just a boy from a quiet Scottish fishing village.
 

Only Murders in the Building
 

Selena Gomez may have been out and about working on collaborations and her very own makeup line, but we can finally catch her back in action on screen in the new Disney+ special, Only Murders in the Building.

Joined by Steve Martin and Martin Short, the show assembles the three strangers who share an obsession with true crime and soon, they become wrapped up in one. Excited? So are we. Episodes drop Tues, Aug 31.
