A new week is here, and while that means we will be closing out March, it also means Netflix will be adding a few new movies and shows to its lineup. This week, the new additions include a new season of a popular baking competition show, a sports drama, an action thriller, and a new dramedy.

First up is Is it Cake? season 3! The popular cake fake-out series is back on Friday, March 29, 2024. Mikey Day is back as host, but a new group of extremely talented bakers will compete to see who can make the most realistic cake, beat the celebrity judges, and win the most money.

Some the celebrity judges for this season include Lana Condor, Lauren Lapkus, Jay Pharoah, Michael Ealy, Taran Killam, and Oscar Nuñez.
