From televangelists to a corrupt media family, Crave is spending August reminding everyone that their own family isn’t that bad. With the new Danny McBride series The Righteous Gemstones, as well as the second season of the award winning Succession, August is all about getting rich off bad decisions and laughing all the way.
Check out more great titles from to Crave in August below!
‘Righteous Gemstones’ and ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ coming to Crave in August
A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOWNew episodes every Friday. From executive producer Issa Rae and creator and star Robin Thede, A Black Lady Sketch Show features comedians Ashley Nicole Black, Gabrielle Dennis, and Quinta Brunson, with the ensemble bringing together the show we’ve waited until 2000-and-freaking-19 to get. But it’s here and we are ready to celebrate the weekly series that knows what SNL seemingly hasn’t learned in four decades—black women are funny, too.Crave
PUNKAugust 8 From creator John Varvatos, the man who brought us boxer briefs and great shoes, and Iggy Pop, the man who brought us The Stooges, comes the four-part documentary series Punk. Beginning with the 1960s, each episode spotlights a decade in the history of punk music and chronicles pioneers like Johnny Rotten, Henry Rollins, Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Flea, Dave Grohl and more.

CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?August 9 If you’re looking for a movie that rips your heart out of your chest, may we recommend Can You Ever Forgive Me? Melissa McCarthy earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her role as author Lee Israel, who forged celebrity letters for big bucks until she was caught by the FBI. Richard E. Grant earned his own Oscar nom for his role as Lee’s friend Jack Hock, which gave Babs superfan Grant the chance to meet Barbra Streisand IRL. Sometimes lying leads to good things. Fox Searchlight Pictures
AQUAMANAugust 10 Jason Momoa makes us feel funny things about fish. In Momoa’s third trip to the ocean as Aquaman (but first starring role!), the superhero fights to regain control over the kingdom of Atlantis. Starring Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, and Dolph Lundgren, Aquaman crossed the $1.1 billion mark in ticket sales, beating fellow DC film The Dark Knight Rises. Warner Bros.
SUCCESSION – Season 2New episodes every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET starting August 11. The family we love to hate is back and they’re richer and more awful than ever. In Season 2, the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series returns with the Roy family reeling from the fallout of heir apparent Kendall (Jeremy Strong) messing up the takeover of the family company from his father (Brian Cox) when he accidentally kills a waiter while high on cocaine at his sister’s wedding. Like we said, these people are awful, but we can’t look away.Crave
CREED IIAugust 17 Come for Michael B. Jordan’s abs, stay for the story of redemption. Sylvester Stallone reprises his role as Rocky Balboa, helping Jordan’s Adonis Creed prepare for a match against Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago, the man who killed Creed’s father three decades ago. So, 2018 was kind of a big year for Dolph Lundgren, right?Warner Bros.
THE RIGHTEOUS GEMSTONESNew episodes every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET starting August 18. Adam DeVine, Danny McBride and John Goodman star in the comedy about a family of successful televangelists who take the Lord’s name in vain. A lot. They’re truly terrible people. Written by McBride (Eastbound & Down, Vice Principals), the hilarious new comedy is equal parts religious zealots and excessive hair gel. Praise the Lord! Crave
THE AFFAIR – Season 6New episodes every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET starting August 25. The final season of the scenic drama is set to conclude with a time hop that brings viewers 20 years into the future. Alison (RIP) and Cole’s daughter Janie is now an adult, with Anna Paquin joining the cast in the role. Maura Tierney and Dominic West are back to make terrible decisions as Helen and Noah, with Paquin’s Joanie returning to Montauk to uncover the truth about her mother’s death. Hopefully. #JusticeForAlison.Crave
POWER – Season 6New episodes every Sunday starting August 25. The final season of the drama Power arrives in August and will wrap up the saga of NYC nightclub owner James 'Ghost' St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), who has spent the past five seasons trying to get out of the drug world where he was once a major player. But before Power fans pour one out for their beloved show, we should note that series creator 50 Cent has hinted at spin-offs. Remix!Crave
ON BECOMING A GOD IN CENTRAL FLORIDANew episodes every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET starting August 25. The new dark comedy from executive producers George Clooney and Kirsten Dunst stars Dunst as a poor water park employee who tries to make money for her family by outsmarting the head of a cultish pyramid scheme.
