Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar

March 2018 is set to be a bumper month for new Netflix Original movies and series coming to the service across the globe. Below, we’ll preview each of the new series, movies, documentaries and anime series scheduled to be added throughout March. 

It’s not often we preview Netflix Originals this early as we usually have to wait for a fuller list of titles to be announced. Netflix, however, has released so much information about what’s coming to Netflix in March we just had to release it early.

Three Netflix Original anime series are planned this month with one having been announced under a different name before and the other two being brand new to the service. As with most anime on Netflix, it premieres on the streaming provider shortly after airing in Japan. We also say goodbye this month to Jud Apatow’s series plus also welcome the creators of Workaholics for a new comedy movie.

As always, you’ll want to keep coming back as we hear of new titles every day plus come back towards the end of February when we’ll have the full list of titles both from Netflix and other providers.

B: The Beginning (Season 1)

Netflix Release Date: March 2nd, 2018

One of several new anime series added to Netflix in March. This series comes as a rebrand of the title previously known as Perfect Bones. 12 episodes are planned where we’ll discover a new species of humans meant to bring peace but are instead kidnapped by a nefarious group.

We’re still waiting for an English dubbed trailer but we’ve embedded the Japanese version for now.

Voltron: Legendary Defender (Season 5)

Netflix Release Date: March 2nd, 2018

As expected, the latest season of Voltron: Legendary Defender is here with brand new episodes just six months after season 4 dropped. Six new episodes are planned for March 2nd.

Jessica Jones (Season 2)

Netflix Release Date: March 8th, 2018

Can you believe it’s over two and a half years since we had Jessica Jones first outing? Although Jessica has not been completely out of the game, having appeared in The Defenders last year, this is her first solo outing since 2015. This full adventure has been in production since April 2017 and finished up in September.

What can we expect in season 2? Well, apparently David Tennant will be making a return but apart from that, things have been pretty tight-lipped.

Ladies First (Documentary)

Netflix Release Date: March 8th, 2018

This documentary covers the inspirational story of Indian athlete, Deepika Kumari who is currently the fifth-ranked athlete in Woman’s archery. Deepika was born on the roadside and grew up in abject poverty. This is her story of how she found her way into becoming an athlete and winning gold at the 2010 commonwealth games.

Love (Season 3)

Netflix Release Date: March 9th, 2018

The TV comedy Love comes from veteran Judd Apatow. Season 3 will mark the final outing for both Mickey and Gus who are trying to discover what Love is in the modern day. The pair has spent the last two seasons bumbling through their lives and love lives respectively but hopefully, they’ll get their act together before the final episode ends.

On My Block (Season 1)

The second coming of age series released so far in 2018. Featuring Diego Tinoco, Jason Genao, Sierra Capri, Brett Gray and Ronni Hawk, this series is set in downtown Los Angeles and explores what it’s like to grow up in the area. 10 episodes are currently scheduled which will release all at once on March 16th.
