Stan: What's New in August 2019

Poster for Power Season 6
Sean Fang Sun, 28/07/2019 - 18:17

It's that time of the month again, where we take a quick peek at all that's going to be coming to Stan in the coming month.


August sees the return of two Stan exclusive shows with brand new seasons. 'Power' returns for a sixth, exciting and final season, with new episodes arriving every Monday starting August 26. The other returning show is the fourth season of 'Preacher', with new episodes coming on August 5.

The genius of Karl Pilkington is that he doesn't seem like a genius at all. Far from it. But his genius is on full display in his new show 'Sick Of It', which stars (twice) and is also the creator. In it, Karl plays Karl, a cabbie who's best mate is his inner self. You can stream the entire first season on August 16).

While you can catch new episodes of this hit dystopian drama on SBS On Demand, those needing a catch-up can now watch the two previous seasons of 'The Handmaid's Tale', with season 2 arriving on August 1.

There is also the 10th season of 'Degrassi The Next Generation' (August 16) - this teen show seems to be unstoppable, and chances are, we'll still be watching some variation of it in the next century (or "experiencing" it using direct-to-mind transmissions).

Movies, Documentaries:

Let's take a look at hat great movies will be coming to Stan in August.

Still from Watch the Sunset

Both of these picks are frantic in their pacing, but 'The Lego Movie' and 'Mad Max: Fury Road' are about as different movies as you can get (although 'The Lego Movie: The Second Part' is actually quite Mad Max-ish). If you love pop-culture references wrapped around a clever and funny movie, then 'The Lego Movie' will be such a great ride. 'Mad Max: Fury Road' is also a great ride, in a different sense, since the whole movie can really be considered just one long car chase (that's underselling it a bit, to be honest). Great cinematography, great action, memorable moments and catchphrases make 'Fury Road' a must-watch. And you might as well catch the original 'Mad Max' while you're at it, as all three movies are coming on August 10.

A hit at film festivals, 'Watch the Sunset' was shot in a single take and is about a man who has to face his past. Stream it on August 31.

For those in a mood for a good cry, then 'My Sister's Keeper' (August 18) is the movie for you. And you might as well put 'Million Dollar Baby' (August 13) in that category as well (although it's considered a much better movie).

Still from Don Jon

Porn addiction is examined in 'Don Jon' (August 21), while revenge gets real in 'The Brave One' (August 30).

The second season of the documentary series 'There 60 Days In' again follows people who volunteer to go into prison undercover to gather evidence of illegal activities. Sounds dangerous? It is! Stream it starting August 9.

And there's always time for the Aussie classic 'The Castle' (August 11) - it's a movie that goes straight to the pool room.


That's August on Stan. I hope you've already picked out the stuff you want to watch. I know I have!
