Reading is what, kids? Right! It’s fundamental, which is why Netflix is bringing back LeVar Burton and the hit PBS show, Reading Rainbow. In addition to every ’80s kid’s afternoon throwback, Netflix has a ton of new titles in store for your bingewatching entertainment this August.

Reading Rainbow is one of the most influential shows of our childhood because Burton truly made reading a joy for us to do. It was on the air for a whopping 26 years when the show ended in 2009. It’s a feat unheard of then and today, and it clearly left a void. Burton held a Kickstarter campaign to bring the show back, and it worked. He raised over $5 million, and then Netflix scooped it up for their children’s audience. It’s finally premiering on Netflix August 1. But here are all of the titles that are coming and leaving Netflix next month.

Also, be on the look out for their other original series, Narcos, and the independent flick, Pariah.
