August is bringing with it a number of new Amazon Originals including Val, a documentary focusing on Val Kilmer that reveals a life lived to extremes and a heart-filled, sometimes hilarious look at what it means to be an artist and a complex man. That arrives on Aug. 6.

Also on Aug. 6 we’ll get the final two episodes of Making The Cut, and then on Aug. 13 season 2 of Modern Love arrives with eight new episodes. In this season, love breaks all the rules. An old flame reignited. A test of friends vs. lovers. A night girl and her day boy. A romance with an ex's ex. A one-night stand. An impossible promise. A ghost of a lost lover. An exploration of sexuality.

Beyond those originals, there are also a ton of new library titles coming to the streamer in August.  Here’s the full rundown of what’s in store:
