Someone tell Beyoncé to ring the alarm. The most exciting time of the month has arrived. Netflix has just bestowed upon us the list of new TV shows and movies that will be available for streaming come August. Did the 'flix disappoint? No, it did not. Here's just a sampling of what you'll find:

The underrated Kristen Wiig flick Welcome to Me arrives on August 6. It's a startling portrayal of mental illness and a not-to-be-missed addition to the Wiig canon. On August 28, Netflix is dropping another original series called Narcos. It bears the tagline, "There's no business like blow business," so that should give you every idea of what it's about.

If it's nostalgia you're after, the first season of Girl Meets World — that Boy Meets World reboot everyone swore they wanted, but no one really watched because it's on the Disney Channel — hits Netflix on August 23. Tune in to see Cory and Topanga as adults raising kids of their own, plus cameos from your favorite Boy Meets World stars.

Keep on perusing for the complete list of titles being added to the Netflix library come August. You're sure to find something to watch.
