Happy Friday! It’s that time of the week where we round up all the new titles that have arrived on Netflix this week and take a look at a couple of highlights.

Happy weekend, streamers. March continues to be a breath of fresh air. More titles are being added and there’s lots of variety. This week sees the addition of a new Disney movie (be sure to take advantage of the Disney titles while you still can) as well as some older movies that are definitely worth a watch. We also see the addition of a new series, The Order, sure to be a hit with the teen crowd.

For your convenience, a full list of the titles added this week is at the end of this article. To keep up with new additions be sure to follow our What’s New page, updated daily.

Award-winning movie ‘Doubt’ is streaming now on Netflix.

Hap and Leonard

This television series is a hidden gem. Based on the novels by Joe R. Lansdale, it’s about two best friends who seem to always find themselves in the stickiest of situations. Like a southern drawl, it’s a slow burn. But it’s also gritty and dark and a great ride. Each season takes them down a different path, never knowing what’s around the corner. The chemistry between the two leads, James Purefoy (The Following) and Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire), is fantastic.

After Life Netflix Original

Ricky Gervais stars in this new Original Limited Series as Tony, a man desperately mourning his wife. He’s lost, suicidal, and out to punish society for his own feelings of loss. He decides to live long enough to punish the world by saying and doing whatever he likes from now on. This series goes to some very dark places but is funny and a very worthy watch.

Formula 1: Drive to Survive Netflix Original

Let’s just get this out of the way: I do not enjoy motorsports in any way. But this look behind the scenes of racing is captivating. There’s drama, excitement, emotion. I did not expect to enjoy this series as much as I did. Serious fans may not find it as luring as I did. But isn’t what goes on behind the scenes so much more interesting than who wins the race?
