It is the best of times.

This August, Netflix will finally bring its subscribers what they have been clamoring for all year. That’s right, country music mega-hunk Brad Paisley will debut his long-awaited foray into standup comedy, Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo. Saddle up for a rollickin’ good time when it hits Netflix on Aug. 15!

Oh wait, did you think we were talking about the first season of Marvel’s The Defenders, the culmination of every show the comics giant has put on Netflix so far? Yeah, that goes up Aug. 18.

If your taste in comics tends more towards manga than superheroes, the live-action Death Note movie starring Nat Wolff and Willem Dafoe premieres Aug. 25. Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the follow-up series to the ‘80s teen movie parody, comes out Aug. 4.

As always, there’s also plenty of new content coming to streaming services not called Netflix. The first two of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man films, the second of which had a very good video game adaptation, will hit Hulu on the first of the month. If those movies don’t have quite the right amount of teen angst you’re looking for, the timeless classic Clueless is coming to Hulu the same day.

In other superhero news, Amazon is premiering its live-action reboot series of The Tick on Aug. 25. The show’s title hero will be played by British comedian Peter Serafinowicz, known for voicing Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

Subscribers to HBO Go will be treated to the Harry Potter spinoff film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on Aug. 12. Also, if you’re getting psyched to see The Hulk speak in Thor: Ragnarok and can squint well enough to imagine Edward Norton as Mark Ruffalo — you can stream The Incredible Hulk on HBO starting Aug. 1.

Check out the full list of movies and TV shows streaming in August below. And don’t forget about Brad Paisley.
