Spring break is almost here, but thankfully streamers aren’t taking time off when it comes to releasing must-see shows, films, and documentaries. Comedy fans won’t want to miss the unique kinda-true and very silly Our Flag Means Death.

For those in the mood for thrills and chills this month, The Weekend Away, Pieces of Her and Deep Water (aka the film that brought us celeb couple Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas) are all premiering.   

March also boasts some of the most highly anticipated titles of the year, including Ryan Reynold’s The Adam Project, Pixar’s Toronto-based film Turning Red and Season 2 of Bridgerton.

Check out the full list of what’s streaming in March.

Worst Roommate Ever

The five-part documentary Worst Roommate Ever is produced by horror film studios Blumhouse Television, so you know this show is going to be much more intense than tales of people not rinsing their dishes and leaving wet towels on the floor. The series follows four people who terrorized, manipulated, and inflicted violence on their unsuspecting roommates. Maybe living with mom and dad isn’t so bad.

Watch on Tuesday, March 1 on Netflix.

Our Flag Means Death

From the very brilliant and very silly minds of David Jenkins and Taika Waititi comes Our Flag Means Death, a new comedy that follows Flight of the Conchords star Rhys Darby as aspiring pirate Stede Bonnet. Waititi also stars as the infamous Captain Blackbird in this hilarious series that has no shortage of must-see guest stars, including SNL alums Leslie Jones and Fred Armisen.

Watch on Thursday, March 3 on Crave.

The Weekend Away

Leighton Meester plays Beth, a mom who just wants a relaxing weekend away in Croatia with her best friend Kate (Christina Wolfe). Based on the bestselling novel, the thriller takes a dark turn when Kate is found dead after a night of partying and Beth is the prime suspect. This is why moms are stressed all the time – we can never just relax.

Watch on Thursday, March 3 on Netflix.

Pieces of Her, Season 1

In the new series based on Karin Slaughter’s 2018 novel, Bella Heathcote plays Andy, a woman whose life is turned upside down when she witnesses her mother Laura (Toni Collette) easily take down a murderer during a mass shooting.

Robbie Amell returns as Nathan, a man struggling with his feelings for ex-girlfriend Ingrid (Allegra Edwards) and his afterlife angel Nora, played by Andy Allo.

Turning Red

One of the most highly anticipated animated features of 2022 is Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red.

Mei’s anxiety isn’t helped by her overprotective mother, voiced by Sandra Oh.

Set in Toronto, Turning Red is directed by Chinese Canadian Domee Shi, who made history in 2018 with her Oscar-winning short Bao by becoming the first woman to direct a Pixar film.

The first installment of Denis Villeneuve’s cinematic masterpiece Dune will be available to stream on Crave starting Friday, March 18.

Anne Hathaway and someone that looks a lot like Jared Leto star in the new Apple TV series WeCrashed, which follows the rise and fall of WeWork. How did a small company that promoted a co-working space go from a $47 billion valuation to almost worthless in the span of a year? Who were the real people behind the business?

Human Resources, Season 1

From the creators of Big Mouth comes another R-rated cartoon that has a little something for everyone. Human Resources follows the characters that help humans interact with each other, including everyone’s favourite Hormone Monster. Featuring the voices of Nick Kroll, Keke Palmer, Maya Rudolph, Randall Park, Aidy Bryant, Pamela Adlon and many more, Human Resources is kinda like Inside Out for grownups. Seriously, don’t let kids watch this.

Watch on Friday, March 18 on Netflix.

Deep Water

This March, the world will finally get to see the film that brought actors Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas together for a real-life, paparazzi-friendly relationship. Even more dramatic than their public courtship is the erotic thriller Deep Water, which features Affleck as a husband who becomes the prime murder suspect when the lovers of his wife, played by De Armas, go missing. That’s much more exciting than pictures of the pair walking their dogs and picking up Dunkin Donuts.

Watch on Friday, March 18 on Prime Video.

Une Affaire Criminelle (A Criminal Affair)

Une Affaire Criminelle is a pulsating new drama from Crave that follows Céline Bonnier as a woman who has spent 15 years trying to clear her sons name after he was charged with murder.

Bridgerton, Season 2

Dearest viewers, the time has finally come to once again indulge in the show that bridges the gap between historical drama and hot, sweaty sexy times. Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page may not be returning, but that doesn’t mean the burning is over. Season 2 will focus on Jonathan Bailey’s Anthony Bridgerton finding love with new cast member Simone Ashley, who will play Kate Sharma. Plus, there’s the not-so-little issue of Nicola Coughlan’s Penelope Featherington continuing to hide her extra-curricular writing. Grab your spoons, Bridgerton is (almost) back.

Watch on Friday, March 25 on Netflix.


Based on Min Jin Lee’s bestselling 2017 book, Pachinko is a visually stunning and emotionally gripping series that follows four generations of a Korean family immigrating to Japan. The ensemble cast is led by Yuh-Jung Youn, who won her first Oscar last year for Minari.

Watch on Friday, March 25 on Apple TV.

Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight

Watch on Wednesday, March 30 on Disney+.


Julia Childs’ history is one that involves much more than cooking. The American chef helped usher in a new era in entertainment with her long-running cooking show and made waves in the women’s movement. Spotlighting her massive impact on pop culture and North American history is the new eight-part series Julia, which stars Sarah Lancashire in the title role opposite David Hyde Pierce and Bebe Neuwirth.

Watch on Thursday, March 31 on Crave.

Hidden Gem: Broad City

Few shows have had the kind of cultural impact that Broad City boasts, and it deserves all the praise it has received and more. Creators, writers and stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson play hyper-realized versions of themselves as two 20-somethings trying to make their way through adulthood. Broad City’s five seasons featured no shortage of quotable lines, (‘To my frond to the ond’), hilarious and tender moments, and massive guest stars. Hillary. Rodham. Clinton. Y’all.

Watch all five seasons of Broad City now on CTV Throwback.
