Another month is upon us, and spring has definitely sprung on Netflix based on the bright, colorful, and exciting series lighting up March. There are so many highly anticipated Netflix shows premiering new seasons this month and a handful of can’t-miss series premieres.

Last month, Inventing Anna and Vikings: Valhalla were among the biggest new release shows on Netflix, even as Ozark and All of Us Are Dead continued their domination in the top 10. On the lighter side of things, Sweet Magnolias season 2 was also a huge hit.

Thankfully, one of the biggest Netflix original series (no, not Stranger Things just yet) returns for its follow-up season at the end of March. On top of that marquee release, there’s a spin-off, a final season, a reality series, a limited series, and so much more.

But is all of it worth watching? That’s the biggest question to ask when it comes to Netflix shows, and we’re breaking down all of the best shows to watch in March, as well as a few that you could skip until another time. Let’s beginning with the hottest show of the month, Bridgerton.

Bridgerton season 2

Watch! As if anyone was planning to skip Bridgerton season 2. (Okay, some people probably won’t watch, but the fans will definitely show up!) Although we’re down a Duke, season 2 puts the handsome Viscount in the spotlight for a new season everyone will be talking about when it makes its big premiere on March 25.

Bad Vegan

Skip! Each month, Netflix seems to release a new documentary or docuseries in the hopes that it’ll be the next viral conversation online. But the Tiger King lightning should probably only strike once. Don’t rush to watch Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives. on March 16 to keep up with the online discourse. Save it for a rainy day.

The Last Kingdom season 5

Watch! Final seasons are always bittersweet, and March will be especially bittersweet for fans of The Last Kingdom. The fifth and final season of the British historical fiction series releases on March 9 in what will surely be an epic conclusion. If you’re wanting more after the finale, a movie will start filming later this year.

Human Resources

Watch! Big Mouth debuts its new spin-off Human Resources on March 18, and it’s a must-watch for fans of the raunchy animated comedy. If you love the hormone monsters, then this show is especially for you. The cast of the spin-off includes Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, David Thewlis, Aidy Bryant, Brandon Kyle Goodman, Keke Palmer, and Randall Park

Life After Death with Tyler Henry

Skip! You probably know Tyler Henry from his E! show Hollywood Medium, where he met with celebrities and connected them to loved ones who have passed. Well, he’s back for Life After Death on Netflix, and it’s sure to be another emotional rollercoaster as he travels to help people around the world. Skip this one if you’re out of tissues.

Pieces of Her

Watch! These days, mystery-thriller limited series are the new watercooler shows. Whether we’re bingeing them or watching them weekly, we can’t seem to get enough. Netflix debuts its next addictive limited series on March 4 with Pieces of Her starring Toni Collette. Honestly, the new series sounds like an Emmy nomination waiting to happen.

Is It Cake?

Watch! Remember that viral social media trend last year where people would cut into seemingly everyday objects and they’d turn out to be cake? Well, Netflix turned that confectionary deception into a series called Is It Cake? In the series, bakers will have to make super realistic cakes to impress celebrity judges and win a cash prize. Prepare to be amazed on March 18.

Lies and Deceit

Skip! The new Spanish thriller might not be on your radar right now, but when it premieres on March 4, Lies and Deceit could very well be a word-of-mouth hit. There’s a fair number of dark horses premiering in March, but Lies and Deceit seems a little too dark for the current moment.

Young, Famous & African

Watch! Young, Famous & African looks like it’s ready to take over the Netflix reality series game. The debut reality show centers on a group of rich and famous media personalities from South Africa, Nigeria, and East Africa. We can’t wait to see what drama unfolds when the series premieres on March 18.
