February seems to have flown by, and while I’m not finished with my February release radar (I’m still trying to figure out Pope, Kiara, & JJ’s love triangle from Outer Banks Season 3), I don’t have much time before a new month of series premieres and movies arrives on my watchlist.
March is shaping up to be a binge-worthy month, with the return of some household favorite shows for an additional season, more installments of film franchises, and the farewell of some of the most iconic (and mostly unexpected) television series. It’s time for me to watch some of the new premieres while eating popcorn and even possibly host a binge-watching party with my friends.
The Mandalorian Season 3 (March 1)
As if all eyes aren’t on the most recent heartthrob, Pedro Pascal, he’ll also be reprising his role as the title character in the third season of The Mandalorian, which premieres on March 1. According to the Daily Beast‘s Obsessed column, the third season will feature Mando and Grogu on their way to Mandalore with the hope that Din can be forgiven for his crimes and that other living beings will be able to see his face after the removal of his helmet.
Sex/Life Season 2 (March 2)
With Netflix announcing on Twitter last month that the new season of Sex/Life would be “back and bigger than ever,” fans are eager to see what the new season will bring.

What effect will this have on her seemingly improving relationship with her husband? Will this be the beginning of a new romance? There’s only one way to find out: Add this thrilling drama series to your watchlist in time for its March 2 premiere.
You Season 4 Part 2 (March 9)
Following the release of the first installment of the fourth season on Feb. 9, the explosive psychological thriller returns with the second part of the season, which should hopefully answer more of the fans’ lingering questions.

Follow Joe as he continues down the rabbit hole of lies, murders, stalking, and the wealthy elite.

This Prime Video miniseries follows a fictional 1970s band led by Daisy Jones, a singer-songwriter, and Billy Dunne, the lead singer of a rock band called The Six.

As a band-obsessed fangirl, you can bet I’ll be watching the series premiere of the highly anticipated feature.

Yes, the former member of One Direction himself. Prepare for some friendly competition and some battle of the voices.
Yellowjackets season 2 (March 24)
Yellowjackets takes place simultaneously in 1996 and the present day, in which a New Jersey high school soccer team is stranded in a forest due to a crash on their way to a championship game in 1996, and the events of the present day follow some of the survivors who have had to deal with that trauma for more than two decades. Come along to see where this twisted fate of friendship and survival leads in the second season.

Riverdale Season 7 (March 29)
The Riverdale franchise has certainly had its fair share of twists and turns over the years, especially considering the ending of Season 6, which featured Cheryl saving the world from a comet but sending the gang back to the year 1955 as teenagers in the process.

There is no telling what to expect from this season, but one thing is certain: It will end in true Riverdale fashion, with an unexpected turn of events.
