32 Movies & Shows Coming To Netflix In March 2017, Including Promising Debuts & Familiar Classics
With the blossoming of spring this March also comes the new plethora of material on Netflix. Sadly, titles like Jaws will be leaving in March, but there are plenty of familiar fan favorites and new titles to fill the void. Known for creating A+ original content, the streaming has a handful of series and films in premiering on Netflix in March. One is coming-of-age drama 13 Reasons Why, which executive producer Selena Gomez has fans eager to see. Another is Deidra & Laney Rob a Train, which has a bleak-comedic hybrid seemingly in the same vein as the beloved Orange is the New Black. And in case you were wondering, acclaimed Netflix shows like Grace and Frankie and Love are returning for new seasons as well. If you’re not already freaking out, just sit back and wait for the roster of classics coming your way.
