With a new month comes a whole new range of things to titillate our viewing tastebuds on Netflix.

March sees a couple of hugely requested favourites return to the services, including the fifth series of Brooklyn Nine Nine.

The New York cop comedy has a huge following, with UK and Ireland fans badgering Netflix’s social media team for months for the fifth season to appear on the platform.

It was announced last week to huge excitement that Season 5 will premiere on March 8th. As Detective Jake Piralta would say, it’s set to be ‘cool, cool, cool’.

Something else that’s long awaited also makes it’s way onto Netflix this month, as the second half of Arrested Development’s fifth series premieres on March 15.

A quirky comedy for fans of the slightly irreverent, it stars a number of big names – Michael Cera, Will Arnett to name a few – and is sure to go down a treat.

Another series returning in March is the Drew Barrymore series, Santa Clarita Diet (March 29).

The series has been one that’s received mixed reviews, so it’ll be interesting to see the reception to the third season when it debuts at the end of the month.

Comedy fans are in for something great this month as well, as the Trailer Park Boys animated series picks up where the real-life series left off on March 31.

There’s some great films coming to Netflix this month too, for those looking for a quick watch rather than a full-on binge this March.

A highlight looks to be The Dirt, a dramatisation of glam rockers Motley Crue’s autobiography that premieres on the service on March 22. Expect a load of drink, drugs and rock and roll in this one.

Another movie based on a true story – albeit a bit more tame – is The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, based on the book written by William Kamkwamba.

It’s about a 13-year-old William who builds a wind turbine to save his Malawian village from famine, and will stream from March 1.

The Highwaymen, starring Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson as two former Texas Rangers, is a must see as well. It’s a representation of the big budget movies that are being created for the service with A list actors and productions.

From director John Lee Hancock, The Highwaymen follows the untold true story of the legendary detectives who brought down Bonnie and Clyde.

When the full force of the FBI and the latest forensic technology aren’t enough to capture the nation’s most notorious criminals, the two former Texas Rangers must rely on their gut instincts and old school skills to get the job done.

In terms of comedy, Amy Schumer’s stand-up special Growing will debut on March 19.

Filmed in front of a packed house in Chicago, the comedian talks about the joys of womanhood, settling into marital bliss, and much more.

Jimmy Carr also has a new special coming to Netflix (March 12), filmed in none other than Dublin’s own Olympia Theatre.

For all these and more, be sure to keep an eye on Netflix as new content drops on the site weekly.
