All the sci-fi TV & movies streaming August 2022: 'Locke & Key,' 'They/Them,' 'She-Hulk,' & more

We have a (new) Hulk, the final season of Locke & Key, and Kevin Bacon's new horror flick on Peacock.

By Trent Moore
Locke & Key, House of the Dragon, She-Hulk, and They/Them.

August is a loaded month for streaming, with new horror films, another hotly-anticipated Star Wars show on Disney+, and some A-list franchises all on tap for the dog days of summer.

Netflix has the new vampire horror-action-comedy Day Shift, starring Jamie Foxx, the premiere (finally!) of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, as well as the third and final season of the supernatural hit series Locke & Key. Disney+ is bringing its mega-franchise( to play with the premieres of Marvel’s She-Hulk (the Star Wars series Andor has now been pushed to September), while Peacock has the premiere of its chilling, high-concept new horror film, They/Them.

Digging a bit deeper, HBO Max has the long-awaited premiere of House of the Dragon, the Game of Thrones prequel series. Over on Prime Video, the streamer debuts its new original superhero film Samaritan, starring Sylvester Stallone as a fallen hero who comes back for more saving lives and punching things. 

On the catalog highlights side, Peacock has The Mummy trilogy (and The Scorpion King), as well as the entire run of the original Quantum Leap. Netflix will roll out Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy as well as the original Men in Black trilogy. Disney+ is adding the recent Pixar spinoff film Lightyear, and Paramount Plus premieres the third season of the animated Star Trek series Lower Decks. And don’t sleep on Apple TV+, which is debuting the third season of the Jason Momoa fantasy-esque drama SEE.


They/Them (Peacock): The new original horror flick, which stars scary movie fan fave Kevin Bacon, is set at an LGBTQA+ conversion camp that is being stalked by a mysterious killer. Written and directed by John Logan (Skyfall, Penny Dreadful), They/Them promises to be a clever mix of psychological horror and old-school slasher thrills. 

Locke & Key: Season 3 (Netflix): The third and final season of the Locke family’s saga looks to bring the story of Key House to a close with the family facing its biggest threat yet. The series remains one of the best Netflix originals, putting a fresh spin on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez’s acclaimed comic series.

Day Shift (Netflix): Jamie Foxx stars in this stylish Netflix horror-action flick about a blue-collar vampire hunter just looking to pluck fangs and get paid. It sounds bonkers and if that wasn’t enough, the supporting cast includes Dave Franco and Snoop Dogg.

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Disney+): The premiere of Marvel’s latest MCU original series looks to lean the hardest into humor and Deadpool-esque fourth-wall breaking. Starring Orphan Black alum Tatiana Maslany in the title role, She-Hulk is being described as more of a half-hour comedy within the Marvel universe, with A-listers like Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk along for the ride.

The Sandman (Netflix): It had been deemed unadaptable, and Hollywood has spent more than a decade trying to bring it to audiences, but Netflix finally cracked it. Based on the popular comic, the series gives Neil Gaiman's iconic story the big-budget scope it deserves. It looks gorgeous, and we can’t wait to get a full look at the show.

House of the Dragon (HBO Max): The Game of Thrones franchise returns to primetime with House of the Dragon, a big-budget prequel series that promises all the violence and intrigue of the original GoT — just with a whole lot more dragons this time around.

Samaritan (Prime Video): Sylvester Stallone takes on the superhero genre as a washed-up hero who has spent decades incognito as a garbage man. (Still keeping the streets clean, get it?!) But, when a new threat arises, the old hero comes out of retirement. Basically Old Man Rocky with super-punches? Yes, please.
