Three months into 2019 and Netflix is already getting to the point where your watchlist is overloaded. March sees a deluge of exciting new things arriving from the return of Santa Clarita Diet, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and RuPaul’s Drag Race to more episodes of Jane the Virgin and Queer Eye.
With Netflix preparing to win at least one Oscar for Roma, it’s wasting no time in lining up original films too, including Chiwetel Ejiofor’s The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, Oscar Isaac and Ben Affleck thriller Triple Frontier, and John Lee Hancock’s The Highwaymen, starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson.
And, to fill in the gaps in between those, there’s a host of old favourites to catch up with, from the BBC’s new animation of Watership Down and smash hit series Bodyguard to Marvel’s Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
