Dear White People: Volume 3 (Photo: Netflix Canada)

Round of applause for Netflix Canada, the real MVP of summer. We know that August is broiling hot, so what better way to cool down than with some absolutely fire TV shows and movies—perhaps paired with some AC? If that sounds like a tiny slice of summer heaven, then you’re in luck because Netflix Canada’s August selection is hot AF, including new offerings (GLOW and Dear White People are both back with their third seasons) and old faves that are on the way out (Back to the Future, how we’ll miss thee). So grab the rosé and load up that queue.
