Animation Coming To Streaming Platforms In August 2022

Direct-to-streaming debuts in August include Netflix’s Lost Olliea limited series from creator Shannon Tindle and director Peter Ramsey, and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie. The streamer is also dropping new episodes of The Cuphead Show and the first of two Fullmetal Alchemist features.

On August 5, Apple TV+ will launch Luck, its first-ever animated feature, produced with Skydance Animation. Meanwhile, Paramount+ continues to up its animation game with the additions of the Beavis and Butt-Head series reboot and season three of Star Trek: Lower Decks.

A note on the list: streamers often announce new animation releases mid-month. Our guide only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but, when possible, we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements. If there are other US streaming services you’d like to see added to our line-up, share a comment below.
