The Ultimate Guide to What to Watch on Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Max, and More in March 2024

Give your watchlist a good spring cleaning

Kelly Connolly

Spring is the season of fresh starts, even on TV. One of the biggest TV debuts in March is Netflix's 3 Body Problem, a sci-fi series from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, whose Game of Thrones ending still stings for people who cared about that sort of thing. Will this be the start of their redemption tour? We'll see. Netflix is also giving new life to Girls5eva, a fantastic Tina Fey-produced sitcom that was beloved on Peacock but can hopefully reach a wider audience on its new platform. If you like under-the-radar sitcoms, you should also check out Hulu's Extraordinary, which returns for Season 2. Other big premieres in March include HBO's The Regime, starring Kate Winslet as an agoraphobic European chancellor, and Apple TV+'s Palm Royale, starring Kristen Wiig as a social climber trying to break into Palm Beach high society.

Our guide to the best TV in March is divided into three sections: the best shows and movies to watch this month, the best shows to watch by streaming service, and a calendar of TV highlights. Whatever you're looking for, you'll find it below. 


The best shows and movies to watch in March

Kristen Wiig, Palm Royale

Kristen Wiig, Palm Royale

Apple TV+

Spaceman (March 1, Netflix)

The Sandman has become the Spaceman. Adam Sandler's latest foray into dramatic acting sees him playing an astronaut who may be losing his damned mind. Six months into a lone mission in space and on the brink of insanity, he gets the psychological and emotional support he needs from a giant talking space spider (voiced by Paul Dano). So yeah, things are going just fine for him. Spaceman is based on the 2017 novel Spaceman of Bohemia by Czech author Jaroslav Kalfař. -Tim Surette [Trailer] [Review]

The Regime (March 3, HBO)

Kate Winslet and HBO love the miniseries thing. The Regime marks Winslet's third limited series for the network, after 2011's Mildred Pierce and 2021's Mare of Easttown — both of which earned her Emmys. This one is a political satire about a chancellor (Winslet) of a fictional European country who scrambles to hold onto power as it crumbles around her. The show was written by Succession's Will Tracy, so expect ample cursing and scathing one-liners. It's like Borgen... but funny-ish! -Tim Surette [Trailer] [Review]

Extraordinary Season 2 (March 6, Hulu)

One of the best new comedies of 2023 is a show you probably never heard about, because for whatever reason, Hulu didn't feel the need to promote it. But the British comedy about a young woman who lives in a world where everyone gets a superpower at the age of 18 — except for her — ranks among the best superhero satire shows, alongside The Boys and Peacemaker. Add the complexities of being a single woman and Gen Z-ers trying to find their identity, and it stands on its own, far from the violence and toilet humor of the others. The excellent cast only gets better with the addition of The Mighty Boosh's Julian Barratt, and after one season of the series tinkering with what works, Season 2 feels even more super. -Tim Surette [Trailer]

Apples Never Fall (March 14, Peacock)

Finally, a Big Little Lies for Florida. Apples Never Fall, based on the bestselling novel by Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty, stars Sam Neill and Annette Bening as Stan and Joy Delaney, a married couple of former tennis coaches, who've just sold their successful Florida tennis academy and are uneasily adjusting to retirement. When a wounded young woman knocks on their door one night, it sets off a chain of events that lead to Joy's disappearance, forcing the Delaneys' adult kids (Jake Lacy, Alison Brie, Conor Merrigan-Turner, and Essie Randles) to confront the family's secrets. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Girls5eva Season 3 (March 14, Netflix)

Peacock's hilarious comedy Girls5eva, about a '90s girl group that tries to make a comeback in current times, may have sung its final tune on that streamer, but Netflix scooped it up and will now air the first two seasons as well as an all-new six-episode third season. Produced by 30 Rock's Tina Fey and Robert Carlock and created by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Meredith Scardino, it stars Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Busy Philipps, and Paula Pell and is all about trying to make it big even when your knees creak and the industry only wants to make stars out of teenagers. It also features one of TV's best theme songs. -Tim Surette [Trailer] [Review]

Invincible Season 2 Part 2 (March 14, Prime Video)

Part 1 of Invincible Season 2 wrapped up in late November 2023, leaving us to endure a long midseason break during the winter months. But spring is just around the corner, and with it comes the back half of Invincible's second season. The story picks up with Mark (Steven Yeun) at a crossroads, as the Viltrumites have captured his father, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons), and given Mark an ultimatum: Conquer the Earth or face deadly consequences. With only four episodes to go, this season feels like it's just getting started. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Manhunt (March 15, Apple TV+)

Playing Abraham Lincoln — and nailing his surprisingly reedy voice — is a rite of passage for actors of a certain stature. In Manhunt, it's Hamish Linklater's turn to put on Lincoln's top hat, though the Apple TV+ limited series is less focused on Lincoln's life than it is on his death. The historical drama digs into the aftermath of Lincoln's assassination, following his secretary of war, Edwin Stanton (Tobias Menzies), as he leads the hunt for the president's killer, John Wilkes Booth (Anthony Boyle). -Kelly Connolly [Trailer] [Review]

Palm Royale (March 20, Apple TV+)

Before we even get to what Palm Royale is about, let's take a look at the cast list, which features Kristen Wiig, Laura Dern, Ricky Martin, Josh Lucas, Leslie Bibb, Amber Chardae Robinson, Allison Janney, Kaia Gerber, Julia Duffy, Mindy Cohn, Bruce Dern, and Carol Burnett. A lineup that fabulous could sell a lesser show than this, but it helps that the premise lives up to the sparkly promise of the ensemble: The series follows a social climber named Maxine Simmons (Wiig) as she tries everything to break into Palm Beach high society in 1969, a time of massive upheaval in American culture. And again, it's got both Ricky Martin and Carol Burnett. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer] [Review]

3 Body Problem (March 21, Netflix)

Do you believe in second chances? I do, which is why I'm looking forward to the first show from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss since they massacred the final seasons of Game of Thrones. This time, the book they're adapting is complete, and it's a doozy: Cixin Liu's science fiction novel The Three-Body Problem, a sprawling, multiple-timeline story about a growing threat from a cold, cold place that divides a world into good and evil. Hmmm, OK, that sounds a bit like Game of Thrones, but swap out White Walkers for aliens. Here's everything we know about the series. -Tim Surette [Trailer] [Review]                   

Ramy Youssef: More Feelings (March 23, HBO)

Ramy Youssef, the titular Ramy from Ramy, returns to HBO with his second stand-up special, More Feelings (the first, from 2019, was titled Feelings — you get it). Per HBO's official description, the special finds the comedian presenting "his unique reflections on our divided world." The very short trailer, which is actually more of a 30-second excerpt of one joke, is already very funny, as Youssef expresses that he is "done apologizing" to Islamophobes. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]

We Were the Lucky Ones (March 28, Hulu)

Based on the bestselling novel by Georgia Hunter and inspired by the true story of the author's family, this historical limited series follows a Polish Jewish family separated at the start of World War II as they struggle against the odds to survive and reunite. Joey King and Logan Lerman star as siblings Halina and Addy Kurc; Lerman's character, Addy, a composer, is based on Hunter's grandfather. The subject matter is heavy, but King said at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that this Holocaust drama is ultimately optimistic, explaining, "It deals with a lot of pain and suffering and sadness, but there is a lot of hope in this show." Erica Lipez, executive producer of Max's Julia and Apple TV+'s The Morning Show, serves as showrunner; Hamilton and Fosse/Verdon director Thomas Kail directs. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Jerrod Carmichael Reality Show (March 29, HBO)

What do you do after winning an Emmy for an intensely vulnerable comedy special? If you're Jerrod Carmichael, you make yourself the subject of a reality show. HBO describes it as "a darkly funny documentary series about Jerrod's tumultuous quest for love, sex, and truth," which seems to get at only a small part of what Carmichael is trying to accomplish, if the show's trailer is anything to go by. From uncomfortable conversations with his parents about his sexuality (Carmichael came out as gay in his 2022 special Rothaniel) to his experiences with dating, the comedian is to laying it all on the table for us to see as he uses this series to "self Truman Show" himself. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]

Anytime Kate Winslet is in something, it's a bit of a celebration, so put on your party hat and get ready to watch The Regime.

On the movie side, Warner Bros. is bringing the sweet Timothée Chalamet musical Wonka home, and Nicolas Cage's A24 film Dream Scenario makes its streaming debut.

Hulu's best new shows and movies in March

It's almost spring, which is extraordinary. Celebrate the season by watching Extraordinary, a Hulu gem that might have flown under your radar but returns for Season 2 in March. The superhero comedy is about the pain of being a twentysomething in a world where everyone but you has superpowers — which is really how it feels to be in your 20s anyway, even if your boyfriend can't turn into a cat and your roommate can't commune with the dead. Am I right? If you're more in the mood for a historical drama, Hulu will also have the World War II limited series We Were the Lucky Ones, starring Logan Lerman and Joey King. Plus, get ready to party with the documentary Freaknik: The Wildest Party Never Told and finish your Oscar cram with Emma Stone's Poor Things. Here's our list of the best shows and movies on Hulu in March, plus everything coming to Hulu in March.

Amazon Prime Video's best new shows and movies in March

People are getting punched on Prime Video this March. In a fun way! A new remake of 1989's Road House, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a former UFC fighter who takes a job at a roadhouse in the Florida Keys, hits the streamer at the end of the month. And you can pair that throwback-style action movie with a throwback-style comedy movie: Ricky Stanicky is about a group of guys who've somehow made it to adulthood without being caught in a major lie — so they hire John Cena to back them up. Meanwhile, the second half of Invincible Season 2 is sure to throw plenty of animated punches as the superheroes fight to defend the Earth. Here's our list of the best shows and movies on Amazon Prime Video in March, plus everything coming to Prime Video in March.

The best new shows and movies everywhere else in March

Outlander and The Crown's Tobias Menzies tackles American history for a change in Manhunt (March 15), a new Apple TV+ series about the hunt for John Wilkes Booth in the days after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. It's a perfect counterpoint to Apple TV+'s splashy, star-studded Palm Royale (March 20), in which Kristen Wiig plays a woman who would do anything to get in with the in crowd at the hottest country club in Palm Beach in 1969. Other big releases in March include Peacock's Apples Never Fall (March 14), which aims to be the next Big Little Lies; Disney+'s X-Men '97 (March 20), a revival of X-Men: The Animated Series; and AMC's Parish (March 31), starring Giancarlo Esposito as a family man with a special set of skills.
