From a reality series about falling in love in Japan to a film about a lovable mutt saving the day, there are plenty of great shows coming this month of March to Netflix. Here are a few we’re personally hyped up for:

Terrace House: Opening New Doors

One of the beloved Japanese reality series returns with an all-new season, all-new members, and an all-new house this March which is perfect timing for those who haven’t gotten on the Terrace House bandwagon yet. Opening New Doors will be located in Karuizawa, Nagano, a beautiful mountain town known for its hot springs and snowboarding activities.

To those unfamiliar with Terrace House, it’s a show where six strangers live together in one house in the hopes of finding friendship and romance, and are free to leave and be replaced by a new member once they’ve had enough. It’s long and slow-paced, with each episode covering one full week at the house, but once you start watching you won’t be able to stop until the end.

Available on Netflix starting March 13.


The Defiant Ones

This four-part Netflix-original documentary series traces the improbable partnership between Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, and their significant impact in shaping contemporary American music. You’ll be seeing plenty of music icons being interviewed throughout the limited series, including Bono, Eminem, Gwen Stefani, Snoop Dogg, Trent Reznor, and Stevie Nicks, which is enough to pleasure any American hip-hop and pop music fan.

Available on Netflix starting March 23.



We’ve gone on far too long without dog-centered movies. Thankfully, Netflix is introducing to us an orphaned puppy named Benji that strikes up a friendship with a brother and his sister. And when the siblings end up kidnapped, it’s up to Benji to come to their rescue. It’s a great movie to watch with family on Sunday afternoons!

Available on Netflix starting March 16.


On My Block

Netflix can’t seem to get enough of coming-of-age comedies. This all-new Netflix Original follows four kids who have to navigate through High School in the rough inner city of South Central Los Angeles.

Available on Netflix starting March 16.


In this 13-part dramatic thriller set in Argentina, titular character Edha (Juana Viale) is a young, empowered fashion designer and single mother who gets involved in a passionate romance with an immigrant-turned-model (Andrés Velencoso) whose motives are sprinkled with a yearning for revenge.

Available on Netflix starting March 16.



Ever wondered what goes on during the creative processes of some of the most notable rappers in the hip hop industry? Rapture is an 8-episode documentary series which allows us to have a peak at the lives of the likes of Nas, Logic, 2 Chainz and more.

Available on Netflix starting March 30.


Santa Clarita Diet Season Two

The wait is finally over! Our favorite zombie mom Sheila (Drew Barrymore) is set to charm us once again with her vibrant personality despite her, well,  affliction. After getting that cliffhanger from Season One, we’ll be looking forward to knowing what will happen to Sheila as time progresses, and whether she and her family will be successful in finding a cure.

Available on Netflix starting March 23.


B: The Beginning

It’s definitely slated to be a golden year for anime in Netflix, and one of this month’s must-watch series is anime B: The Beginning. Set in Cremona in a time when the world is powered by advanced technology, a diverse set of characters must race through the city to contain a serial killer, Killer B.

Available on Netflix starting March 2.
