New To Netflix In March 2020

You’ve got to wonder how Netflix can possibly afford to continue bringing out a slew of generally pretty great shows and movies every single month. The sheer volume is staggering and the state of things has this writer wondering: how long can this possibly last? They say we’re in the golden age of television. So just as it did for cinema in 1969, will it all end soon? And will it be marked by the sadistic killing of another starlet at the turn of a new decade? It is 2020 after all. If so, please don’t let it be the mother on Schitt’s Creek.

March is a good month for it. Marking the return of possibly one of the best TV shows of all time (Ozark) and another episode of Riverdale (frowny face emoji), Man of Many’s essential list of what’s New To Netflix In March 2020 will help you separate the ‘ah fuck it, we’ll greenlight it’ shows from the gold.

ORIGINAL SERIES

Ozark: Season 3

Starring Jason Bateman (who is perpetually fantastic in this show) and Laura Linney, Ozark Seasons one & two were, for all intents and purposes, perfect. Subtle, moody, suspenseful and the definition of ‘slow-burn’, we’re expecting nothing less from season 3 of the Emmy-winning series about a suburban family laundering millions in the Missouri Ozarks.

Release date: 27th March 2020

Black Lightning: Season 3

One of the better Superhero shows out there, Black Lightning season 3 looks to be just a slick, and just as grounded (get it?), as its two predecessors. We’re thankful that DC’s first major African American superhero is getting the kudos it deserves.

Release date: 26th March 2020

Kingdom: Season 2

The zombie period drama set in Korea’s Joseon era returns for season 2, and honestly, it looks tight. Moody, gritty, and gloriously filmed, Season 2 promises a royal court teeming with snakes, zombies (obviously), and the crown prince under immense pressure to save the nation.

Release date: 13th March 2020

Elite: Season 3

A trash program to be sure, but not without its allure, Elite (A.K.A spanish Gossip Girl) is back for another season. This time another classmate has been killed, and a new investigation is ensuing. So – and please prepare yourself for the ultimate exercise in thoughtful layering – while the students look toward their future during their final days at school, the consequences of the past will haunt them. PS: the trailer is nothing but a bunch of close-up shots on the unrealistically good-looking cast and reveals literally nothing. But that could be your thing, so please don’t let us stop you.

Release date: 13th March 2020

The Valhalla Murders

Shots of icy snow and even icier facial expressions reveal what could be an excellent cop-yarn. The Valhalla Murders follows an ambitious Icelandic detective who teams up with a beat-cop from Norway to investigate a series of murders that may (probably though) be connected to a heinous trauma.

Release date: 13th March 2020

Paradise PD: Part 2

One of the more disgusting animated shows out there, Paradise PD: Part 2 is nearly here. As the diabolical Kingpin tightens his grip on Paradise, the squad will contend with bitter feuds, dirty schemes, kinky fetishes and a nuclear threat. Prepare to cringe, in the most delightful sense.

Release date: 6th March 2020

NETFLIX WEEKLY SERIES

Riverdale: Season 4

Guys, it’s coming to an end. For some, this will be a sad bit of news. For others – such as this writer who knows far too much about Riverdale after years of writing about the incipid drama – it’s something to celebrate. Season 4 brings with it yet another daring adventure intertwined with “chilling darkness” (righto Netflix, calm down) as Riverdale explores a new side of grief and the gang prepares for the ultimate test: senior year. Sigh.

Release date: 4th March 2020

NETFLIX FILM

Spenser Confidential

Starring Mark Wahlberg as Spenser and Post Malone (wtf), Spenser Confidential follows Wahlberg fresh out of prison and investigating a twisted murder. Quickly, it would appear he’s
is sucked back into Boston’s underbelly. Based on the popular books, the trailer looks great and perhaps the show will be too.

Release date: 6th March 2020

Mark of the Devil

For those who might have been craving a bit of satanism in their day-to-day, Mark of the Devil When follows two sisters who open an ancient book that ushers evil into their midst, a possessed priest wrestling with his own demons.

Release date: 27th March 2020

Guilty

A controversial concept to be sure, Guilty follows a college heartthrob accused of rape by a less popular student – in the pursuit of truth, his girlfriend navigates various versions of the story.

Release date: 6th March 2020

The Platform

Dystopian and moody, The Platform boasts a fresh, original concept. Set in a prison where inmates on high floors eat better than those below, one man tries to effect change so everyone gets enough. Poignant, hectic and brutal, this is one not to be missed from Netflix.

Release date: 20th March 2020

ORIGINAL COMEDY

Taylor Tomlinson: Quarter-Life Crisis

Following her Netflix debut on The Comedy Lineup Part 1 (2018), Taylor divulges the lessons she’s learned in her first hour-long comedy special, Taylor Tomlinson: Quarter-Life Crisis. Taylor will talk about working on yourself, realistic relationship goals, and why your twenties are not actually “the best years of your life.”

Release date: 3rd March 2020

Bert Kreischer: Hey Big Boy

Comedian Bert Kreischer is back, and shirtless once again, in his second Netflix Original comedy special, Bert Kreischer: Hey Big Boy. Bert will candidly share stories about his daughter’s ‘period party’, a pushy arms dealer, and an inside joke with a Starbucks barista.

Release date: 17th March 2020

Ladies Up

Rising India-based comics Prashasti Singh, Kaneez Surka, Supriya Joshi and Niveditha Prakasam bring no-holds-barred humor to this stand-up series.

(Coming Soon)

ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY

Dirty Money: Season 2

The critically-acclaimed investigative series Dirty Money is back for a second season. A up-close and personal view into untold stories of scandal, financial malfeasance and corruption in the world of business, this season offers a look inside Jared Kushner’s real estate empire (oh shit! Ballsy move Netflix), the Wells Fargo banking scandal and Malaysia’s 1MDB corruption case. If there’s a doco-series to watch this year, it’s this one.

Release date: 11th March 2020

Tiger King

You’ve got to hand it to Netflix: they aren’t afraid to try something new. Tiger King follows a long-standing rivalry between big cat eccentrics, and the world in which they operate. A lot of the focus will be on Joe Exotic (great name), a controversial animal park boss, who’s been caught in a murder-for-hire plot. Be sure to check out the doco that confirms once and for all “that the only thing more dangerous than a big cat, is its owner”.

Release date: 20th March 2020

Ugly Delicious: Season 2

The second season the series is said to continue to challenge both our taste buds and our minds as Chef Chang travels the world once again with writers and chefs, activists and artists. Special guests include Nick Kroll, Aziz Ansari, Padma Lakshmi, food writers Helen Rosner and Chris Ying, Danny McBride, Bill Simmons, and Dave Choe – which means it’s probably going to be pretty funny.

Release date: 6th March 2020

ORIGINAL ANIME

Castlevania: Season 3

The new season of Castlevania – one of the better-animated shows out there btw – will see Belmont and Sypha settle into a village with sinister secrets, Alucard mentoring a pair of admirers, and Isaac embarking on a quest to locate Hector.

Release date: 5th March 2020

Altered Carbon: Resleeved

Dai Sato, the creative mind behind “Cowboy Bebop,” will further explore and expand upon the “Altered Carbon” universe in this anime adaptation that, knowing Netflix is pouring lots of money into developing OG anime content, will likely be of a high standard and worth your time (especially if you love yourself a bit of Takeshi Kovacs, which you should because he is a badass).

Release date: 19th March 2020
