It’s officially been a year since the coronavirus pandemic left us homebound and searching for binge-worthy content like never before. This new normal has made
what's coming to Netflix in March 2021 an all-important question as we honor a not-so celebratory anniversary. Fret not, fellow watchers — the streaming service is committed to offering the masses new movies every week throughout the year, as well as a variety of buzzy series and specials. Several eagerly anticipated films and TV shows are hitting the Netflix queue in March, including seasons of beloved K-dramas and docuseries.
March will bring
the controversial , a documentary that explores Operation Varsity Blues the college admissions scandal involving celeb parents such as Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin. (In other words, everyone will be checking Olivia Jade’s newly-revamped YouTube channel for a statement.) This month also marks the arrival of Michelle Obama’s new kids series, , which sees the former First Lady hosting alongside a cast of colorful puppets with lessons about food and friendship.

However, with these splashy new arrivals come disappointing departures for movies and TV seasons on the platform. If your comfort movie is the 2004 classic
The Prince & Me (and why would it not be?), you’ll have to squeeze in another viewing before March 31. That can also be said of Silver Linings Playbook starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (gone on Mar. 16), and all four seasons of , which you can binge until March 3. To make the most of your second March in quarantine, here’s everything coming to and leaving Netflix this month. Rectify Moxie - March 3 Amy Poehler and Hadley Robinson in Netflix's Moxie.

So you want to start a revolution in your patriarchal high school? Look no further than this guide, directed by Amy Poehler and based on a bestselling 2017 novel from Jennifer Mathieu, about a group of teens who start a feminist movement thanks to an underground zine. Poehler also stars in the comedy as a former riot grrrl, who inspires her daughter, Vivian (Hadley Robinson) to fight for her rights.
Marriage or Mortgage - March 10
Imagine a bingeable love child of HGTV’s
House Hunters and TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress—a show you’ll devote an entire weekend to watching, only hitting pause for snacks and bathroom breaks. Enter Marriage or Mortgage, a new reality series that asks couples to choose between their dream weddings or dream homes. Wedding planners and realtors will present their best ideas to the couple as they decide, a process that will be sure to get you overly emotionally invested and feeling badly about your own inability to find either in your own life.

Per usual, Michelle Obama is bringing the world a dose of delicious optimism with her new kids series. The former First Lady and a slew of celebrity guests (hello,

The world loves a good scandal and none was juicier in 2019 than the college admissions scam, which led to prison sentences for celebs including Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman. Filmmakers Chris Smith and Jon Karmen, who previously gifted us with

This may be one of the best shows that you’ve never heard of.
Rectify made , The Hollywood Reporter , and Rolling Stone “Best Shows of the Decade” lists for its depiction of a man who is released from prison after two decades spent on death row for a crime he didn’t commit.

This was the movie that gave Jennifer Lawrence her first Oscar (and one of the
most unforgettable award show moments of all-time). But it also established the long-standing chemistry between J.Law and her frequent co-star Bradley Cooper, who also nabbed an Academy Award nod for his performance as a man remaking himself after time spent in a mental health facility. Come for the awards prestige, stay for the film’s unexpectedly delightful dance sequence. The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Leaving March 31
For a certain generation, this coming-of-age story about a trio of high school misfits— Charlie (Logan Lerman), Sam (Emma Watson), and Patrick (Ezra Miller) — was a roadmap to adolescence. Directed by Stephen Chbosky and based on his novel of the same name,
Perks is one of the best book-to-movie adaptations of recent years. It's also the movie that inspired teens to go driving through tunnels at night so they could unironically declare, "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite."

Just as the universe gives, the universe taketh away. Weeks after news of the
SATC revival, And Just Like That... , Netflix is removing both of the series' spinoff movies.
