It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and while you might not think it’s the kind of holiday that necessitates a specific Netflix watch list, you should never turn down an opportunity to watch even more Netflix shows. Any reason to binge-watch Outer Banks, right?

There are so many Irish movies and shows on Netflix, including Derry Girls, Rebellion, The Wonder, The Siege of Jadotville, and even the romantic comedy Leap Year. Whether they take place in Ireland or originate from the country, they’re definitely titles worth watching.

If you’re looking for some shows to add a little bit of luck to your life this St. Patrick’s Day, we know that there’s a handful of Netflix shows we’d all be lucky to watch. But before your luck runs out, there’s a couple you can leave off your watch lists on March 17.

Best Netflix shows to watch for St. Patrick’s Day 2023

We’re sharing four Netflix shows you should binge-watch on St. Patrick’s Day and two you should skip and save for another day. Maybe Easter? Kidding! But here’s what you need to watch while wearing green.

Outer Banks

Watch! Who’s more lucky than the Pogues? These treasure hunting teens have skirted death on multiple occasions, avoided going to jail, and defied the odds on tracking down gold that seemed impossible to find. What Outer Banks lacks in Irish spirit, it makes up for with the luck of the Pogues. And after season 3’s huge arrival, season 4 has already been confirmed.

The Mindy Project

Watch! If you’re one of the many New Girl fans mourning the impending loss of the sitcom next month, here’s something lucky for you: An equally funny replacement binge! Mindy Kaling created and stars in The Mindy Project as a doctor looking for love in New York City and hilariously failing along the way. The series contain six seasons, and all of them are currently streaming on Netflix.

Sex/Life - Netflix shows

Skip! The second season of Sex/Life was released on March 2 and the series has ranked in the top 10 TV shows list since its release. Fans certainly had been anxious to watch the next chapter of Billie’s sex life, but on this particular holiday, feel free to leave the hit (and slightly ridiculous) Netflix romantic drama on the back burner.

Good Girls season 4 - Netflix shows

Good Girls

Watch! If there’s anyone who’s just as lucky as the Pogues in Outer Banks, it’s the three moms of Good Girls. In the beginning of the series, Beth (Christina Hendricks) teams up with her sister Annie (Mae Whitman) and her best friend Ruby (Retta) to rob a grocery store. Fast forward, and they’re laundering money. You have to see it to believe it! All four seasons are on Netflix.

Netflix shows - Shadow and Bone season 2

Shadow and Bone

Watch! You probably wouldn’t call someone who discovers a magic within them and then must suddenly face off against The Darkling lucky. But Shadow and Bone fans are extra lucky to be receiving the highly anticipated second season on March 16. There’s never a bad time to watch both seasons — 16 episodes total — from start to finish, including St. Patrick’s Day.

Skip! The fourth season of You has officially concluded after being released in two parts across February and March. Although the season has been performing well, it’s been met with mixed reviews. It’s unclear if Joe will be back for season 5, but this time around, pass on You and maybe try out the blockbuster Korean drama The Glory instead.
