Published Feb 25, 2016The snow is probably melting, and it's maybe even getting warmer, but who gives a shit — we're all going to spend March the same way we spend every other month, wasting away on the couch and binge-watching all kinds of stuff. Fortunately, Netflix Canada has got plenty to choose from in the coming weeks.
There's a massive amount of big-ticket Netflix exclusives on the way, including the return of some of its most popular TV shows. Kevin Spacey's political drama House of Cards is set to return for a fourth season on March 4. There's also the return of Marvel's Daredevil, which lands on March 18. And Canadian comedy fans will be happy about the 10th season of Trailer Park Boys, dropping on March 28.
That's just barely scratching the surface, however, as Netflix will launch its new sketch comedy series The Characters and Will Arnett's new dramedy Flaked on March 11. There's also a new comedy special from beloved British standup/panel show host Jimmy Carr, arriving on March 18.
Netflix will also deliver some new movies, with the arrival of the David Lynch-produced My Beautiful Broken Brain documentary and, for a different kind of broken brain, a brand new Pee-wee Herman movie called Pee-wee's Big Holiday. Those both arrive on March 18.
British television fans will also be happy to see some of their favourite shows rereleased as Netflix exclusives, with both seasons of Cuckoo landing on March 7 and Happy Valley delivering its second season on March 16.
There are plenty of recent movies landing on the service as well, with 47 Ronin, Ant-Man, Dark Places, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Poltergeist, Spy, The Voices, Transcendence all landing on March 1. For true cinephiles, the Ice Cube/Kevin Hart buddy cop movie Ride Along will arrive on March 27.
If it's TV you desire, there's plenty of that as well with season 1 of The Returned (March 9) and part 2 of season 7 of Mad Men.
You've also got some binge-watching to do before certain titles are yanked. If you've never seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Mean Girls, it's time to leave the mountainous cave you've been hiding out in and finish them before March 1. That's also when Star Trek: The Next Generation will leave Netflix.
You've got a little more time to watch World War Z and Midnight in Paris — they'll leave Netflix on March 15 and March 30 respectively.
