Get through midterm season with new Netflix arrivals in March



A new month, a new influx of films and shows coming to Netflix! Of course that also means a slew of movies and shows leaving the streaming service. With a mix of Netflix Originals, classic movies and new seasons of TV shows coming and going, be sure to check these features out before they leave, or once they arrive. 

“The Notebook” 

Romance lovers rejoiced after Netflix announced the arrival of the beloved adaptation of “The Notebook,” starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. The film version of Nicholas Sparks’ popular novel takes place in South Carolina in the 1940s, as socialite Allie and poor mill worker Noah fall in love, despite their class differences. Everyone knows aspects of the story, from the iconic “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird” scene to the reveal of the elderly couple’s identities, yet are still bound to shed some tears by the end. 

“Christopher Robin” 

Classic Disney characters from the Hundred Acre Wood are revisited in this live-action imagining of the titular character (Ewan McGregor) as a grown man rediscovering the magic and fun of his childhood friendship with Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and more. This is one of the most recent movies of the March release to be added, coming out just last year. The movie contains a nostalgic sentiment as it explores the pitfalls of growing up and adulthood, which you will be able to watch starting March 5. 

“Queer Eye” Season Three 

Get ready for even more extravagant makeovers with the Fab Five with the third season of “Queer Eye.” Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Jonathan Van Ness return to show us all how to make our lives more fabulous. From advice on food and wine to fashion, culture and grooming, you won’t need to consult any other experts after watching the new episodes, which drop March 15. 

“How to Get Away with Murder” Season Five 

Although tagged on at the tail-end of the month, the fifth season of the popular lawyer-murder thriller is well worth the wait if you haven’t been able to catch up on the Keating Five’s latest crimes on ABC. Catch up on the show in the meantime, with the previous four seasons, following infamous defense crime attorney and professor Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) as she takes five ambitious law students under her wing. Together, they navigate the competitive and deadly world of criminal justice that blurs all too closely with their own lives, past and present. Catch the latest season on March 30.  

“Arrested Development” Season 5B 

Despite the bad press surrounding the critically-acclaimed sitcom’s revival earlier last year, the show returns with the second half of its fifth season on March 15. Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) is forced to juggle the responsibility of running his family’s real-estate after his father is sent to prison, as well as dealing with the rest of his eccentric family while still remaining a good father for his son (Michael Cera). 

“Emma” and “The Jane Austen Book Club” 

Get your daily dose of Jane Austen with the theatrical adaptation of the period novel “Emma,” starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Alan Cumming, Toni Collette and Ewan McGregor. Young socialite Emma, a hopeless romantic, tries her hand at matchmaking with the people around her. However, some view her help as meddling, and her own relationships are put to the test when she realizes that navigating the affairs of early-19th-century England are not as easy as she assumed. “The Jane Austen Book Club,” another book adaptation, follows a book club comprised of six middle-aged women who read Jane Austen novels and soon see themes from her novels paralleled in their own lives.
