New on Netflix, Stan, Prime Video and hayu August 2018: Groening’s back, in pog form!

Brodie Fogg 26 July 2018 NEWS

Netflix gets disenchanted, Stan is calling Saul again and Jim from the office is going rogue in Amazon's Jack Ryan.

When we thought we might have seen the last of Groening, those dream weavers over at Netflix announced an all-new project from the pappy of animated comedy, Disenchantment. The series follows Bean (Abbi Jacobson), a rebellious princess unhappy with her lot in life and her newfound friends, Elfo (Nat Faxon) and Lucy (Eric Andre). One is a sugary-sweet elf with an unrelenting sunny disposition and the other is a demon tasked with leading the princess astray.

After months of teasers, Disenchantment is finally coming to Netflix on 17 August.


Over on Stan, ol' slippin' Jimmy is coming back on 7 August with episodes releasing weekly. Better Call Saul started as a simple origin story for the morally grey criminal lawyer we knew in Breaking Bad but over four seasons it has managed to come into its own. If you broke bad but haven't taken the time to call Saul, we highly recommend dialling in.

Prime Video's slow roll into the Australian market comes to an explosive head this month with its original TV series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan premiering 31 August. Many have taken on the Jack Ryan role; Harrison Ford, Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck. All actors with some action chops behind them. This time around, the role is being handled by cutesy comedy nerd turned action superstar and horror writer/director John Krasinski.

Hopefully, it's a quality addition to Amazon's improving original line-up.
