Coming and Going on Netflix in March 2017

Rooney Mara in "The Discovery."

Netflix original programming continues to roll out at a furious pace and March brings dozens of new and returning series and original movies and documentaries. The most anticipated is surely Iron Fist, the fourth Marvel Comics series in the Netflix Defenders Initiative, but there are plenty more stand-outs.

Rooney Mara stars in the science fiction drama The Discovery with Riley Keough and Robert Redford, which comes direct to Netflix from the Sundance Film Festival, and Melissa Leo is The Most Hated Woman in America in the drama based on the life of atheist activist Madalyn Murray O’Hair.

The new documentary Five Came Back, based on the acclaimed book about how World War II affected Hollywood filmmakers John Ford, John Huston, Frank Capra, George Stevens, and William Wyler, is accompanied by a curated collection of classic war documentaries.

Also debuting are the new young adult drama series 13 Reasons Why, the arts series Julie’s Greenroom with Julie Andrews, the animated Buddy Thunderstruck, stand-up comedy specials from Amy Schumer and Jim Norton, and new seasons of Grace and Frankie, Love, and Trailer Park Boys.

New movies include the excellent live-action version of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon and Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The BFG, the Oscar-nominated documentary Fire at the Sea from Italy, and older films include Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-winning Million Dollar Baby, Mel Brooks’s Blazing Saddles, and the animated adventure Jurassic Park.

New TV arrivals include the first season of the Oprah Winfrey-produced Greenleaf and additional seasons of How to Get Away with Murder, Better Call Saul, and Archer.

Among the movies leaving Netflix in March are the original Jaws, the cult comedy National Lampoon’s Animal House, The Nanny Diaries with Scarlett Johansson, and the reality TV satire American Dreamz.
