March looks like it’ll be a particularly good month for streaming, with some of the biggest shows on the planet returning to our screens. The Mandalorian is blasting back onto Disney+, while Succession’s final season arrives on HBO and Sky Atlantic towards the end of the month. There are also mysteries and comedies galore, so read on to get stuck into the best of Netflix’s new releases in March.
Succession Season 4
Succession’s fourth and final season is almost upon us. HBO’s most turbulent family are back to continue vying for power over the Waystar RoyCo media empire- and things are set to somehow get even more heated.
On the horizon is Logan Roy’s (Brian Cox) impending sale of Waystar to Lukas Mattsson (Alexander Skarsgard), a tech visionary keen to sink his fingers into a new business pie. The rest of the Roys aren’t too happy, and the knives once again come out (if they were ever put away, to begin with). All good things must come to an end, but hopefully, the Roy family saga will end with a bang.

You Season 4 Part 2
The first part of season 4 of You only arrived on Netflix a few weeks ago, but if you’ve already binged straight through it and are eager for more, then you won’t have long to wait. Part 2 is set to arrive on 9th March, with five more episodes to cap off the season.
Part 1 found serial killer Joe (Penn Badgley) now living in London, having made a new identity and found a new life. He crosses paths with Kate (Charlotte Ritchie), with the two becoming increasingly entangled with each other, and tries to uncover the mystery of another murderer, the “Eat The Rich” Killer.

The Mandalorian Season 3
Man of the moment Pedro Pascal’s series The Last of Us will air its last episodes of the season in March, but he’ll still very much be in the limelight as the third season of The Mandalorian arrives on 1st March. It’s been two years since Season 2, and Mando and Grogu (or Baby Yoda) are back for more adventures in a galaxy far, far away.
Answers to burning questions are promised as the two travel to Mandalore after Mando made the transgression of removing his helmet. Grogu is also developing his force abilities having been trained by Luke Skywalker in the spin-off show The Book of Boba Fett– so there’s plenty of juicy action to look forward to.

Ted Lasso Season 3
It’s time to return to the footy world of AFC Richmond, as the cheery manager Ted Lasso leads his newly promoted team into a new season. While Ted is optimistic, the media don’t rate the team’s chances, predicting it’ll come last in the Premier League and be relegated again.
Roy (Brett Goldstein), Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) and Beard (Brendan Hunt) are all back to lend a supportive hand to Ted, especially after his panic attack and the loss of star player Nate to West Ham United. As things seem to be falling apart on and off the pitch, it’ll be Ted’s toughest challenge yet.
Available on Apple TV+
A new anthology series about climate change, Extrapolations is set in the not-too-distant future, as environmental damage has already set to the point of seriously changing our world.
Apple TV+ has signed up a sizeable cast for this new series, with Meryl Streep, Edward Norton, Gemma Chan, David Schwimmer, Tobey Maguire, Marion Cotillard and Forest Whitaker just some of the names making appearances. Each of the eight episodes tells a different story that ties into climate change, and the series is scripted by Contagion writer Scott Z. Burns.

Yellowjackets Season 2
Mystery thriller Yellowjackets is finally coming this March after two years of absence. Shauna Shipman (Melaine Lynskey), Taissa Turner (Tawny Cypress), Misty Quigley (Christina Ricci) and Natalie Scatorccio (Juliette Lewis) are all set to return, alongside new faces like Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood as amateur detective Walter, Simone Kessel as the adult Lottie Matthews and Lauren Ambrose as adult Van. Plot details are unsurprisingly being kept under wraps, but you can expect the same addictive mystery that made season 1 such a hit.

Luther: The Fallen Sun
London’s most seasoned detective returns: 4 years since Luther’s last season aired in 2019, the grizzled DCI John Luther will finally be back on our screens in The Fallen Sun.
A feature-length film continuation of the main TV series, Fallen Sun sees Idris Elba don the signature red tie and dark grey trench coat as he investigates a new case. A serial killer has been terrorising London, but our hero is behind bars, having been arrested at the dramatic end of series 5. But prison isn’t going to stop Luther, and he resolves to break out and catch the killer, ending their spree once and for all. Series creator Neil Cross is back on board to write, and Elba is joined by a winning cast that includes Cynthia Erivo, Andy Serkis, Dermot Crowley, Ruth Wilson and Paul McGann.
