We’re quickly approaching winter’s end and the start of the spring television season! March offers many exciting series with Hulu paving the way ... On the 18th, Hulu’s new mini-series brings major players, Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, together for Little Fires Everywhere (No. 1). Based on the Celeste Ng novel, the eight episodes will follow the fates of the “picture-perfect” Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The streaming service continues to be a strong contender this month with the debut of sci-fi thriller, Devs (No. 2). When a software engineer’s boyfriend disappears, she suspects foul play and investigates the secretive division of her tech company.
Next, HBO’s The Plot Against America (No. 3) imagines an alternate history told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family as they watch the political rise of aviator-hero and xenophobic populist, Charles Lindbergh. Winona Ryder, John Turturro, and Zoe Kazan star in this six-part adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel, which arrives on March 16th.
Great storytelling filled with fantasy and adventure closes out our new category. Steven Spielberg’s 1985 anthology series, Amazing Stories (No. 4), returns on the 6th -- only this time for Apple TV+. Through five different tales, the reboot will transport characters into worlds of wonder, possibility, and imagination. And finally, AMC’s latest series, Dispatches from Elsewhere (No. 5), follows a group of ordinary people who find themselves involved in a puzzle hiding behind everyday life. The scavenger hunt unveils mysteries and magic that run deeper than they ever imagined.
After a sixteen month hiatus, the long-awaited third season of HBO’s Westworld (No. 1) leads our returning category. Immediately following the events of Season 2, the eight episodes will explore questions about the nature of reality, free will and what makes us human (with new cast additions: Aaron Paul, Vincent Cassel, Lena Waithe and Scott Mescudi).
Netflix dominates the rest of March’s list as several fan-favorites make their respective returns starting with Spanish teen drama, Elite (No. 2). March 13’s release will dive into the aftermath of Season 2’s “killer” discovery, and how the students will bring them to justice. Meanwhile, the third season of Ozark (No. 4) falls deeper into the dark side with a life of crime and Marty’s casino boat now up and running. Season 3 of the crime-drama drops on the 27th.
Lastly, the start of the month brings new episodes of Netflix animated series, Paradise PD (No. 3) and Castlevania (No. 5). Paradise PD’s sophomore season features dirty schemes, kinky fetishes -- and even a nuclear threat -- while anime horror, Castlevania, delivers more murder, mayhem, and vampires than ever before with its third season.
