Manuela, as always, comes to the rescue of her old, incombustible friend. “The show is verbal, fun and pungent,” says director and co-author, Felix Sabroso.

What series will be released in August?

A still from the movie The House of the Dragon.

And if the heat is too hot, we can always stay home, not forgetting to blind, and enjoy a good chain marathon. There are many novelties that can accompany you during the hot summer evenings.

This August will be a good month for fans of “Game of Thrones” and the George R.R. Martin saga. The House of the Dragon is finally coming to HBO Max, the fictional story set 200 years before what happened in the original series and which tells the story of the Targaryan House. On the Disney+ side, we have another popular premiere, “Andor,” with Diego Luna once again as a Star Wars character. For the rest, a relatively meager month in releases.
