Looking for something new to watch on Netflix? Here's a list of all the best new shows and movies released on Netflix the week of March 6-March 12.

It's a big week for Marc Maron on Netflix, as the comedian has a stand-up special and a movie in which he has a supporting role new on the service. He's not in Season 3 of On My Block, but that would be fun! Maybe they can get him for Season 4 as a cranky teacher or something. There are also a lot of promising international titles, like The Circle Brazil and I Am Jonas, as well as the second season of Bourdain-esque food travel show Ugly Delicious.

All titles debuted on Friday, March 6 unless otherwise noted.

The Biggest Releases




Spenser Confidential
Director Peter Berg only makes movies with Mark Wahlberg now. This is his fifth straight movie starring the erstwhile Marky Mark. It's their first movie for Netflix and the first movie they've made together that's supposed to be purely fun. (Deepwater Horizon wasn't a barrel of laughs, you know?) Wahlberg plays Spenser, a former Boston detective who went to prison after being framed by crooked cops he was trying to expose. Now he's out, and he teams up with his hulking new friend Hawk (Black Panther's Winston Duke) to bring the perps to justice. The movie is very loosely based on the Spenser & Hawk characters created by legendary crime novelist Robert B. Parker, not keeping much beyond the names and Boston setting. It's Mark Wahlberg, of course it has a Boston setting! The fun cast includes Alan Arkin, Iliza Shlesinger, Post Malone, and Marc Maron.

On My Block, Season 3
Out of all of Netflix's many, many coming-of-age shows, On My Block is one of the best and definitely the coolest. In Season 3, the kids from South Central -- determined and kind Monse (Sierra Capri), sensitive and loyal Cesar (Diego Tinoco), dramatic and sincere Ruby (Jason Genao), and nerdy and reliable Jamal (Brett Gray) -- are tasked with finding Lil' Ricky, the no-longer-presumed-dead founder of the Santos gang. Very real gang-related danger lurks around every corner, which make the laughs feel even more cathartic. (Trailer / Wednesday, March 11)
