Amazon Prime became one of the highest-producing platforms when it comes to original content. Now, we’re all eagerly awaiting the new Lord of the Rings series, one of the most expensive projects in the history of cinematography, but there’s a long way to go until September.
First, let’s see what Amazon Prime has in store for us in March. Here’s a chronological list of all the Amazon Prime originals coming to the platform in March 2022. Note that I’m only listing Amazon Prime original content, not all the movies, TV shows, and documentaries that’ll arrive on the platform during next month.
Lucy And Desi (03/04/2022)
Being the Ricardos is an awesome movie from Amazon starring Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem. The film revolves around Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, two comedians behind the groundbreaking sitcom I Love Lucy. The movie has three Oscar nominations, all for the actors – Kidman as Lucy, Bardem as Desi, and J.K. Simmons as William Frawley.
Well, Lucy and Desi is an Amazon Prime original documentary that’s taking an even deeper dive into the couple behind I Love Lucy, their marriage, life, and the sitcom that changed the Hollywood landscape forever and cemented Lucille’s legacy long after her demise in 1989.
The director of the documentary, which has 1h 45 m of runtime, is Amy Poehler, a famous modern comedian with huge respect for Lucy and Desi. This might not be the humorous flick Amy accustomed us to, but I bet it’ll be an awesome documentary that you just have to watch.
Star Trek: Picard: Season 2 (03/04/2022)
Fans of the epic, monumental series Star Trek rejoiced when Amazon Prime boldly ventured into a spin-off series based on the fan-favorite character, Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Patrick Stewart, known for his awesome role in the X-Men movies where he depicted the titular Charles Xavier, aka Professor X, is back as Picard in the series.
In season 2, Picard and his crew members are trapped in the 21st century after Q broke reality as a part of the ultimate trial for Jean-Luc Picard. Picard has to race against time to save the future of not only Earth but the entire galaxy.
Season 2 will bring Star Trek fans many familiar characters and faces, as well as some big names such as Whoopi Goldberg, John De Lancie, and others.
The Boys Presents: Diabolical (03/04/2022)
The Boys TV series is one of the most popular Amazon Prime Originals ever created and, if I may add, one of the very best. The dark humor will have you scream in shock in one moment and then roll on the floor laughing in the other. Now, a new spin-off series is about to drop, and fans of The Boys show, as well as the comic it’s based on, couldn’t be more excited.
Although the new spin-off series will be animated instead of live-action, it will keep the anarchic, dark, violent, and hilarious tone that both the TV show and the comic book source material have.
To add to it, the cast of The Boys Presents: Diabolical couldn’t be more epic and star-studded. The voices include Awkwafina, Seth Rogen, Simon Pegg, Jason Isaacs, Ben Schwartz, Anthony Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Giancarlo Esposito, Christian Slater, and others. I have a feeling this one will be even more epic than the live-action show.
Pete The Cat Season 2 Part 4 (03/04/2022)
Pete the Cat is an animated series created for children, based on the #1 New York Times bestselling book of the same name. The series has come out in bunches since 2017, and a new bunch of episodes ought to hit Amazon Prime in March. The show’s IMDb page suggests it’ll hit the platform on March 2nd, but other sources say it’ll likely be March 4th.
The series is a fun, musically-driven series about exploring the world and trying new things while keeping an open mind and open heart. While I’ve never watched the show, I’ve read the book, and it’s amazing for kids to learn how to accept others and themselves for who they are.
Many awesome cast members give their voice for the show, including Don Was, Alyson Stoner, Jacob Tremblay, Jessica Biel, and others.
Harina is one of the rare international Amazon Prime Original projects coming to the platform in March. The comedy series originated in Mexico, and it’ll be in Spanish, spanning over eight episodes in the first season with a 30-minute runtime for each.
Pedro Esteves and Carlos Reichel are the creative duo behind the show after a short sketch of the same name was quite a success. The story follows a Mexican officer, Ramirez, played by Veronica Bravo, and her goofy partner, in a series filled with hilarious situations and misadventures of the two police officers.
The short film, Harina, garnered over 160 million views on social media in 2019, and now, the production for the show is worth a fortune compared to that, so I bet it will be just as hilarious, if not more so. The rest of the cast includes Luis Fernando Pena, Ana Gonzalez Bello, Guillermo Villegas, Dagoberto Gama, Luz Aldan, and others.
Upload Season 2 (03/11/2022)
If there’s one thing I’ve realized about Amazon Prime Originals, it’s that their comedy series are usually their best projects. Upload is one of those projects that began in 2020, and now, season 2 is coming to the platform.
We follow a guy who dies unexpectedly but gets to choose what his afterlife will look like after uploading his consciousness into a virtual world. He gets an angel, who he befriends first as he gets acclimated to the new life, surroundings, and laws of the virtual world. The sci-fi comedy takes an unexpected turn when questions about his untimely death start to resurface.
Season 2 will start with Nathan, who now lives with Ingrid, as he searches for Nora, who recently went off the grid. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you should watch the first season, and everything will make sense. The cast includes awesome actors and actresses, such as Robbie Amell, Andy Allo, Allegra Edwards, and others.
If you were a fan of The Office (US), or Parks and Recreation, then you’ll probably enjoy the humor in this series, too, as the came creator, Greg Daniels, made Upload, too.
I’m a huge fan of the horror genre, especially when it has mystery/thriller elements. However, I’m an even bigger fan of Regina Hall, who is one of the two leads in the film, so you better believe I’m going to watch this film as soon as it premieres.
The story follows two African American women that go through horrifying, seemingly supernatural experiences and start to share them with one another while attending a predominantly white college in New England.
The harrowing tale is about the inherited thread of racism that follows American society to this day, depicted in a stylistically beautiful. But terrifying way.
The film already premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and, according to the first reviews, it divided the audience. Some found the story and plot somewhat disconnected and all over the place, and others found it riveting, insightful, and thought-provoking. One way or another, it’s worth a watch.
Deep Water (03/18/2022)
Deep Water is an Amazon Prime/Hulu collaborated project that began development all the way back in 2013. The film has been delayed numerous times for many reasons. The pandemic was one of them, but the behind-the-scenes drama took the biggest toll that made the movie prolong its release for almost nine years.
The story follows Vic, played by Ben Affleck, who lives in a farce marriage with his wife, just to avoid an ugly divorce in the small town they live in, Little Wesley. Melinda, played by Ana de Armas, is allowed to have as many lovers and affairs as she wants, as long as she agrees not to abandon Vic and their family.
Things take a dramatic turn when one of her lovers, Malcolm McRae, is found dead. Vic becomes infatuated with the murder while his wife is already with another man. So, to drive the new guy away, Vic takes the credit for McRae’s death. However, after the real killer is found, the community thinks Vic’s statements were merely dark jokes, pushing him into deep water.
I’m not a big Ben Affleck fan, but the guy knows how to choose roles. I bet it’ll be a great film despite the delays. With Adrian Lyne as the director, and Patricia Highsmith’s novel adapted by Zach Helm and Sam Levinson (Euphoria), this film will definitely be more than just another love drama. I’m picking up some Gone Girl vibes here.
Lizzo’s Watch Out For The Big Grrrls (03/25/2022)
Lizzo is a global pop superstar with the confidence of a queen and the attitude to follow. She’s hosting this new reality show in search of other big, badass women who are here to dance and compete for a spot on Lizzo’s dance crew for an upcoming tour.
Only those who have the confidence and the dancing skills to match will be chosen to join Lizzo and the BIG GRRRLS. I love Lizzo and the message she’s sending each and every day. Being confident and loving yourself shouldn’t be something rare, and seeing her open the doors for other girls is as wholesome as it gets.
Amazon Prime doesn’t produce that many reality originals, but I bet this one will be worth it for the platform.
