What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in March 2021?
James R | On 27, Feb 2021
March is the month that starts to see the coronavirus pandemic restrictions lift at varying stages across the UK and Ireland, but Netflix is intent on keeping audiences indoors with a month that brings two high-profile animated franchise spin-offs – from DOTA and Pacific Rim – Amy Poehler’s new film, family flick Yes Day, the latest thriller from the creator of Money Heist, plus a new take on Sherlock Holmes.
But it’s the third party acquisitions that really shine this month, with Eighth Grade, Crazy Rich Asians and She Dies Tomorrow forming a trio of recent movie gems, the latest season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine finally arriving and – after an even longer wait – Season 4 of The Bold Type finding a UK TV home.
