There are so many new releases on OTT platforms this August that we just had to make another list for it. And as we know you’re always on the hunt for new shows and films, we make it simple for you. Here’s your queue to add all the new releases on Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar and Apple Tv+ to your August watch-list.

1. Delhi Crime Season 2

Becoming the first and the only Indian series ever to win an International Emmy (the show received Outstanding Drama Series award in 2020), Delhi Crime is all set to release the next season. While the first season focused on the aftermath of the heinous 2012 Nirbhaya case in Delhi, the second intalment follows inspectors Vartika (Shefali Shah) and Neeti (Rasika Dugal) chasing a gang involved in the brutal murder of senior citizens in the 1980s. While the case is the central plot, the series will also shed light into the personal lives of both the leading officers.
