Following Avatar: The Last Airbender‘s successful and record-breaking move to Netflix in May, all four seasons of the sequel to the loved Nickelodeon series, The Legend of Korra, will be made available later in the month. The original Jurassic Park trilogy will also make land on the first day of the month.

Fan-favorite titles leaving Netflix in August include the Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston movie Just Go With It, the original Child’s Play movie, the ’90s classic Clueless, and the first three The Karate Kid movies. All seven seasons of the popular British dramedy Skins will be leaving at the beginning of the month.
