What’s On Netflix – March 2018

If you’re as Netflix obsessed as we are, you’ll be dying to know what releases are arriving at the streaming service in March. You’d better hurry up and stop binge-watching Friends, as there’s lots of new and exciting things to watch this month.

March is the month of International Women’s Day, and this is certainly reflected in their content. The long-awaited season 2 of Jessica Jones will be released, as well as the highly anticipated Netflix original film Annihilation, a sci-fi flick starring Natalie Portman. Drew Barrymore will return to the Santa Clarita Diet, and David Letterman will interview¬†Malala Yousafzai.

Riverdale will return after taking a short break, and a Series of Unfortunate Events will be back for season 2, with Neil Patrick Harris as the evil Count Olaf.
