Over the years, Netflix established itself not just as the world’s leading streaming platform but one of the leading global productions, too. Netflix-produced movies garnered a staggering 27 Oscar nominations in 2022, more than any other streaming platform, or production house, for that matter.
And, that doesn’t even include the phenomenal TV shows they produce and turn into viral hits, such as the Korean show Squid Game or their originals You, Witcher, Ozark, Stranger Things, and more. March 2022 will be quite active for the platform, so without further ado, here’s a complete chronological list of all Netflix original movies and TV shows releasing in March 2022.
Worst Roommate Ever (03/01/2022)
As a huge true crime genre fan, I can’t wait for Worst Roommate Ever. It’ll be a five-part documentary series that guides us through four terrifying stories of people who had lived with nightmarish roommates, not knowing how malevolent their intentions were.
The show was slated for release in February but was later pushed to March 1st. The stories include missing people after moving into an elderly woman’s house, an introverted girl disappearing shortly after moving in with a college student, an athlete trying to hide his evil side, and a mysterious man terrorizing several roommates and destroying their lives.
Blumhouse Television stands as the main production house for the show, and it will air worldwide, exclusively on Netflix.
The Guardians of Justice (03/01/2022)
If you’re a fan of the superhero genre, then you don’t want to miss the new Netflix superhero animated series, The Guardians of Justice. Described as an action-adventure comedy, we follow an alien superhero called the Marvelous Man who kept the peace of Earth for around 40 years.
He has other arrangements, though, so he leaves the mission to Knight Hawk – his violent first lieutenant and The Speed, an idealistic superhero. The two prove to be quite a dynamic duo trying to stop a nuclear war. It’s not Marvel, but the animation looks super interesting. I’m looking forward to checking it out.
Against The Ice (03/02/2022)
Against the Ice will be the first Netflix original film ever coming from Iceland. In the Land of Ice and Fire, we’ll follow a story about a Danish expedition to Greenland in 1909 that set out to disprove the US claims of North-Eastern Greenland. The United States claimed it, saying the island is separated into two halves, so the Danish Expedition wanted to prove otherwise.
Led by Nikolaj-Coster Waldau, portraying the Expedition leader, Ejnar Mikkelsen, himself and a crew member, Iver Iversen, abandon their ship and crew to continue the journey on a sled. They find evidence of Greenland being a single island but endure extreme hunger, weather conditions, and polar bear attack on their way back.
Somehow, they get back, only to find their ship crashed in the ice and the camp abandoned. I bet it will be an awesome but grueling film about survival. I’m a huge fan of Jaime… um… I mean, Nikolaj, as well as his fellow Game of Thrones actor, Charles Dance, who will also have a role in the film.
Savage Rhythm (Season 1) (03/02/2022)
Savage Rythm, also known as Ritmo Salvaje, is a Colombian dance drama in eight episodes that the fans of the genre will absolutely love.
The plot will follow two groups of dancers from different sides of the world who walk along their paths, ultimately leading to a collision between one another in a dance battle/competition. They come from different backgrounds and different social statuses, and they learn that it’s not their status that defines them but their passions and dreams.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Season 2 (03/03/2022)
I loved the 1980s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe when I was a kid, so I was extremely excited when the reboot series started in 2021 on Netflix. However, the show left the audience divided. I found it cool, but some people found it too modern, and that necessary nostalgia for the original He-Man never kicked in.
Still, Season 2 is coming to Netflix soon, and I eagerly await to watch it. It’s a bit more politically correct, with some characters changing from bulky male dudes to young, intelligent female characters. Mattel Television produces the show.
Surviving Paradise: A Family Tale (03/03/2022)
There are two reasons why I simply can’t wait for Surviving Paradise: A Family Tale to come out.
First, whenever I see Netflix making a wildlife documentary, I rejoice because Our Planet was one of my favorite wildlife documentaries ever created. Therefore, I bet this one will be just as awesome, especially now that we know the series will be family-focused.
The second reason why I can’t wait for the docu-series to come out is that Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page will be the narrator – and my girlfriend keeps telling me how she can’t wait to hear his voice again. Whatever makes her happy, right? …Right?
The Weekend Away (03/03/2022)
The Weekend Away is a Netflix original movie that follows two friends, Kate and Orla, as they get ready for their annual weekend getaway together. This year, they visited Croatia. However, thighs take a horrifying turn when Kate goes missing, and Orla is accused of her murder. As she tries to clear her name and uncover the truth, she instead uncovers a dark secret.
The film is directed by an impressive young director, Kim Farrant, who already has a couple of great projects behind her, including Strangerland with Nicole Kidman, and Angel of Mine, starring Noomi Rapace Yvonne Strahovski and Luke Evans.
In The Weekend Away, Leighton Meester takes the main role, best known for her part in Gossip Girl. Personally, I’m excited about the film because it was mostly filmed in Split, Croatia – only a few kilometers away from where I currently reside.
Midnight At The Pera Palace (03/03/2022)
This Netflix original series comes from Turkey and is originally titled Pera Palas’ta Gece Yarisi. It follows a young journalist, Esra, who reflects on her experiences at the luxurious Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul. The show ought to be a drama/fiction.
Esra accidentally discovers that one of the rooms is actually a portal that takes you back to 1919. However, she gets caught in the middle of a political conspiracy in the past, so now, she has to find a way not to disturb the past and destroy the flow of the future. It could be a very interesting series that I’ll certainly check out.
Pieces of Her (03/04/2022)
The Pieces of Her series is destined to be the next Netflix hit, with an incredible cast led by Hereditary’s Toni Collete in the lead role, followed by Bella Heathcote, David Wenham, Jessica Barden, and others.
The new mystery/thriller series will depict a quiet Georgian town where nothing really happens – until it does. A woman’s trip to the mall with her mother leads to a random act of violence, which eventually turns out to be not so random. She uncovers pieces of her mother’s troubled past identity, leading her to a life on the run.
It’s unclear if the show will be a short series of only one season or renewed for another season. It’ll probably depend on the show’s success, like most Netflix shows.
Nightride is a cool Irish thriller movie that will really give you an impression of a real-time, one-shot flick and keep you at the edge of your seat for a while. The main star of the film is Moe Dunfor, most well-known for his role in the Vikings TV series.
The movie is headed to Netflix UK – unfortunately, it won’t be available on other Netflix versions, but an international expansion is expected if the film fares well. The Netflix original revolves around a deal who’s trying to do this one last job and get out of the business once and for all. However, things don’t go quite as planned.
The Invisible Thread (03/04/2022)
The Invisible Thread, originally named Il Filo Invisibile, is an Italian Netflix original that follows Leone, a teenage boy with two fathers. Leone is making a documentary about his family. However, a big plot twist sends him in a completely unexpected direction. He battles societal prejudices while dealing with his parents separating.
It’s a tough but comic approach to a subject that definitely deserves a deeper look, battling stereotypes and ignorant thinking about the life of a child of parents of the same gender.
Making Fun (03/04/2022)
This reality series should be tons of fun. So, if I got the premise right from the trailer, Jimmy DiResta is an expert, crafty maker, and creator who loves to hang out with his group of 4 other friends.
The guys throw out crazy, kid-like ideas about totally pointless yet awesome inventions, such as a guitar-shaped boat, and if Jimmy is in the mood, they just go into the workshop and make those crazy ideas a reality. I bet it’ll be a series jam-packed with bro humor, just perfect for a light evening with a beer after work. Count me in!
Chip And Potato Season 3 (03/08/2022)
If you have smaller children – especially pre-schoolers – then you’ll rejoice at hearing that Chip and Potato are returning for another season of awesome, family-friendly adventures. The show is very inclusive and teaches children that it’s okay to be different and that they should appreciate and accept other children’s differences.
The modern animated series features Chip, who’s starting kindergarten that has gender-neutral bathrooms, same-sex parents, and other inclusive messages and values necessary for living in today’s society.
Taylor Tomlinson: Look At You (03/08/2022)
If you’re a stand-up comedy fan, then you’re going to enjoy Taylor Tomlinson: Look At You. The stand-up comedy special is hitting Netflix on March 8th, and fans are happy it’s happening. Once again, Taylor is taking relatable topics and poking fun at her own expense, this time talking about her mental health, dating, grief, and a whole lot of other subjects.
If you watched her 2020 special, Quarter-Life Crisis, and liked it, you’ll probably like this one, too. If you haven’t watched it, it’s on Netflix, too, so have a go at it. She’s brilliant if you ask me.
An Astrological Guide For Broken Hearts Season 2 (03/08/2022)
Originally titled Guida astrologica per cuori infranti, the series is an Italian Netflix original with a classic rom-com premise. Hence, if you love the genre, you’ll probably love the series, too.
Alice has been single for long, especially after a tough heartbreak. However, she meets an astrological guru who gives her some pointers as Alice does her best to find that perfect match, her soulmate, the love of her life.
Last One Standing (03/08/2022)
Last One Standing Season one kicks off in early March, and I really think it could be awesome. The Japanese reality show gathered several comedians that needed to act in a thrilling drama. However, the script is removed and unhinged at certain points, where they have to come out with a joke.
If the joke sticks, they survive. If it flops, they’re out of the game, just like that. I don’t know which would be funnier – a good joke or a colossal flop. The same goes for the series – it could be an awesome, funny reality piece, or it could simply be a cringe-worthy flop fest.
Queer Eye: Germany (03/09/2022)
The reality series Queer Eye was a big hit in the US. Now, the show is getting a German version, where a group of five – designers, beauty gurus, nutritionists, and fashionistas – go around town and help others turn their lives around with some grooming, diet changes, and a new wardrobe.
The Last Kingdom (03/09/2022)
The Last Kingdom was a BBC Two show for the first two seasons, but then Netflix picked it up and continued the epic, historical story. The story revolves around England and the right to the throne of a kingdom.
I don’t wish to spoil too much, although so many things happened in the show already that I couldn’t spoil it even if I wanted to. If you dig the medieval vibes and stories revolving around the Vikings and the Saxons, the show will certainly not disappoint.
The Andy Warhol Diaries (03/09/2022)
I’m very excited about this one. The Andy Warhol Diaries will be a limited documentary series about the biggest pop-art icon in the world, the one and only Andy Warhol. As you might’ve known, Andy was shot in 1968. What you probably didn’t know, though, is that, after being shot, Warhol started putting himself, his life, feelings, thoughts, and more into diaries.
Well, now we have a chance to peek into those diaries to see who this man truly was. The mini-series will have six episodes, produced by the outstanding Ryan Murphy and directed by Andrew Rossi. It’ll cover Andy’s entire life, from growing up in Pittsburgh to becoming the larger-than-life figure he is.
Byron Baes (03/09/2022)
This Netflix reality show that debuts on March 9th is really a product of modern society and ways to conduct business. It’ll revolve around exploring the culture of social media stars and influencers that use social media platforms to be entrepreneurs while implementing a certain lifestyle that goes with being “at work” 24/7.
The Australian reality show could really go into the depths of what it means to be a social media star, but we’ll have to wait and see what we end up with.
Kotaro Lives Alone (03/10/2022)
Kotaro Lives Alone, originally titled Kotaro We Hitori Gurashi, is a Japanese anime-style series that’s coming to Netflix soon. The story revolves around Kotaro, a 5-year-old kid living alone in his house, and his neighbor, an unpopular manga artist who takes care of him.
I genuinely love Japanese animation, but the trailer gave me some real Pokemon Nintendo game vibes, so I’m very excited and eager for the series to come out. It seems like it’ll be a fun, humorous adventure.
Karma’s World (03/10/2022)
Karma’s World is an awesome, feel-good Netflix animated short series created by the famous actor and performer Ludacris. The story revolves around Karma, a gifted middle-schooler who raps for fun but also for her dream to combine her talent, love for music, and ambition to conquer all her problems.
The show is short and sweet and really has a heart and soul, so I’m really wondering what season 2 will bring.
The Adam Project (03/11/2022)
If you loved Free Guy, then get ready for another epic collaboration between Ryan Reynolds and the Free Guy director, Shawn Levy. The Adam Project will be a sci-fi comedy, where Reynolds portrays Adam – a time-traveling pilot.
Adam goes back in time to team up with a younger version of himself and his late father (portrayed by Mark Ruffalo) to make peace with his past, but also to save the future. Both Reynolds and Ruffalo are near the top of my list of favorite actors, so I hope the film won’t disappoint.
Life After Death With Tyler Henry (03/11/2022)
Tyler Henry is best known as The Hollywood Medium. Life After Death will be a new series with Tyler, where he ought to travel across the United States, trying to help people get closure after they’ve lost somebody they loved and end the grief.
Personally, not something I’m looking forward to, but the reality TV star has a nice following base, so I have no doubt it’ll be a successful show.
Once Upon a Time… But Not Anymore (03/11/2022)
Spanish music and language have never been hotter, and Netflix is milking that muse as hard as they can. Once Upon a Time… But Not Anymore will be a Spanish musical comedy coming out on March 11th, filled with fairy-tale references and an awesome soundtrack.
The plot follows a couple who tries to reunite in another life and break the spell cast over their town. That description gives me strong Once Upon A Time TV series vibes, but maybe it’s just a coincidence, right? I mean, if they sing along the way, then it’s not the same thing.
Formula 1: Drive To Survive (03/11/2022)
Here comes the next season of Netflix’s popular docuseries about F1 drivers and their path to greatness in the FIA Formula One World Championship. Listen to exclusive interviews from the biggest F1 stars, like Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, and others.
The series is fantastic and really shows you how much it takes to be among the best and even get into the competition to win the championship. Interestingly, the two leading teams, Ferrari and Mercedes, first refused to participate in the Netflix docuseries but were both eventually a part of the final product.
Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives. (03/16/2022)
This has got to be one of the weirdest documentary limited series Netflix ever made. It revolves around Sarma Melngailis, one of the most popular restaurateurs of vegan cuisine, who got conned out of her fortune, her restaurant, and made to go on the run.
Sarma’s restaurant was frequently visited by celebrities and the elite, including Bill Clinton. After marrying an odd man, he convinced Sarma that he could make all her dreams come true – expand her business to unfathomable heights, and – get this – make her beloved dog immortal.
Suddenly, she’s in a drama that sees her accused of stealing $2 million from the restaurant, and she goes on a run from the law that completely crushes her life and reputation.
Rescued By Ruby (03/17/2022)
Another amazing Netflix original is coming in mid-March, featuring Grant Dustin in the main role. Rescued by Ruby is a true story of a guy that tries hard to join an elite state troopers K-9 unit with the help of Ruby, a naughty but smart dog from a local shelter.
Ruby was full of energy and ended up in a shelter because her previous owner couldn’t control her behavior. She has been adopted and returned five times before she met Dan, only a few hours away before the shelter euthanized her. Eventually, they overcome their hardships together and make their dreams come true.
It’ll be a cool, feel-good movie, great for a family movie night.
Human Resources Season 1 (03/18/2022)
If you loved Big Mouth – the popular animated series – then hold your breath for Human Resources. The series drops on March 18th, and it’ll be a spin-off series with many familiar characters from Big Mouth crossing over into this series.
We’ll get to see more about what everyday life looks like for Shame Wizards, Hormone monsters, and other creatures. Big Mouth is one of my favorite Netflix animated series, so I bet Human Resources will be just as great, especially knowing the same team is forging the spin-off.
Top Boy Season 4 (03/18/2022)
Top Boy is an awesome British crime/drama series that first came out in 2011. After three seasons, the show was canceled, but, thanks to (partially) Drake, Netflix decided to pick up the story and revive the show for seasons four and five.
The story follows two London drug dealers whose underground business is flourishing. But, as their business grows, so does the danger of conducting it. Plots, schemes, teenagers getting lured into the life of crime, and more awaits in Season 4. Honestly, the show was awesome so far, and I don’t know why it was canceled in the first place, so I can’t wait for Season 4.
Black Crab (03/18/2022)
Although you’ll see Noomi Rapace starring in the lead role, Black Crab is actually a Swedish film, originally named Svart Krabba. The story revolves around a post-apocalyptic world, where six soldiers – led by Noomi – have to deliver a mysterious package across a frozen archipelago through a silent covert mission.
The problem is, they don’t know what lies ahead and who they can trust. They don’t even know if they can trust each other. I believe it’ll be an awesome film because I really loved the headline – hope burns brightest in the cold.
It’s odd to me that there’s not much talk about the upcoming Netflix original, Windfall, starring Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), Lily Collins (Emily in Paris), and Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother). The film ought to be a crime/drama/mystery, with an awesome cast, so I’m very excited to watch it.
The plot will see a robber entering an empty vacation home of a wealthy billionaire couple. However, they arrive for a getaway weekend in the middle of his robbery, which is where the story will kick off. I’m excited about it because I love all three of the main cast members.
Alessandro Cattelan: One Simple Question (03/18/2022)
Netflix is going big on reality series, producing another one in Alessandro Cattelan: One Simple Question. With so many successful reality endeavors of international series, it will be quite amusing to see one in Italian.
In the show, Alessandro will travel and search for the answer and a formula for one simple question: what is happiness? This multigenre docu-series will feature interviews, conversations, comments, and a lot more.
Light The Night Part 3 (03/18/2022)
This awesome Japanese show has been a pure revelation for me, and I can’t wait for part three to come out in March. The series is a mash of drama, mystery, thriller, and crime, revolving around the red light district in Taipei.
The series focuses on a popular Japanese nightclub that attracts business people and tourists not just from Japan but all over the world. The women try to navigate through their friendships, love, and not-so-grateful customers. Overall, the series has quite a grim vibe but retains that mesmerizing Japanese flavor and culture, mixed with a pinch of the 1980s.
Standing Up (03/18/2022)
Standing Up, coming out on March 18th, is a French comedy-drama that premieres solely on Netflix in mid-March. The story follows four young comedians in Paris who are desperately trying to chase their dreams of getting that amazing stand-up stardom.
However, the life of a comedian doesn’t pay all that well, so they have to struggle with their finances, romantic problems, as well as family pressure. I might be a bit biased when it comes to stuff like this because, as I said, I’m a big fan of stand-up comedy. Well, good stand-up comedy, at least.
Therefore, I have high expectations of the series, despite it not being the biggest production ever.
I love adventure flicks, traveling, hiking, and backpacking. And although Backpackers (originally named Hasta Que Nos Volvamos A Encontrar, or Until We Meet Again) isn’t strictly a movie about traveling and backpacking, the pair meets on a breathtaking trip to Peru.
The cute romantic comedy follows two completely different people who encounter each other in Peru, and that encounter makes both of them question their views of life. One is a logistic workaholic, while the other is a free-spirited artist and backpacker.
The dynamic could be quite interesting, and although I’m not a big rom-com fan, I’ll give it a shot simply because the landscape and shots of Peru ought to be mesmerizing.
Cracow Monsters (03/18/2022)
March 18th will be a big day for Netflix originals, and I bet everyone will be able to find something awesome for themselves. I’ll definitely check out the Cracow Monsters; a Polish series originally titled Krakowskie Potwory. I’ll watch it for two reasons.
One, the plot seems quite interesting: a young woman, haunted by her past, joins a mysterious professor to investigate paranormal activity in Cracow and fight demons haunting the town. Two, I’ve been to Cracow half a dozen times, and I always leave mesmerized at the beauty and history of the spectacular Polish city.
Young, Famous & African (03/18/2022)
Yet another reality TV series from Netflix takes us all the way down south to Johannesburg, the gold capital of South Africa. The series follows a group of famous, influential, young media stars and starlets that work on their careers while enjoying that sweet, sweet nightlife.
We’ll see some new affairs, old love flames reigniting, and much more. It could be quite an interesting, weekend-chill show, but we’ll see once we see it.
Love Like The Falling Petals (03/24/2022)
Love Like the Falling Petals is also known as My Dearest, Like A Cherry Blossom. The cherry blossoms themselves suggest that the show is Japanese – a live-action romantic drama directed by the renowned Japanese director, Yoshihiro Fukagawa.
The story follows a young, amateur photographer trying to make a name for himself in the business. He falls in love with his hairdresser, and they begin a relationship, but he soon finds out that she has a unique condition that makes her age very fast.
Bridgerton Season 2 (03/25/2022)
Bridgerton was the unexpected record-breaker for Netflix, as the romantic drama garnered the most watch time in the first four weeks of streaming than any other Netflix hit before. Not even Stranger Things or Witcher came close until Squid Game – again, unexpectedly – beat out Bridgerton.
The fictional romantic drama is an adaptation of Julia Quinn’s novels. Although it was not nearly my cup of tea, Netflix obviously sees the potential profit, as two more seasons and a spin-off series are already announced and in the works.
Transformers: BotBots (03/25/2022)
Transformers: BotBots will be a Netflix original animated series revolving around tiny little transformer robots that morph into everyday objects at a mall during the day but turn into BotBots during the night. One night, a group of mischievous BotBots encounters a security guard, putting the entire BotBot population in the mall in jeopardy.
How will the little BotBots deal with the security guard? Will the rest of the BotBots forgive the misfits for their mischiefs? Call me a toddler, but I can’t wait to find out.
Trust No One: The Hunt For The Crypto King (03/29/2022)
Another true crime documentary is coming to the platform in late March 2022. There’s no murder at hand here, but the stakes are extremely high. The story follows a group of investors turned into web sleuths who try to find out more about the suspicious death of Gerry Cotten.
Cotten was a cryptocurrency multimillionaire who made a deal with the investors worth $250 million, only to disappear and later turn out dead, with no money in sight. The investors suspect he tricked them and stole the money, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what really happened in the show.
All Hail (03/30/2022)
Last but not least, All Hail will be a Spanish-language film revolving around a famous TV weatherman named Miguel Flores, who failed to predict a horrifying hailstorm, so the entire country starts hating him. He’s forced to leave Buenos Aires and return to his hometown, Cordoba.
Once he’s there, he’ll go down a road of self-discovery, which Netflix describes to be “as absurd as it is human.” It sounds interesting, but we’ll see how the project is manifested.
