New series coming to Netflix in March 2018
Stock up on your hats, scarves and gloves, because there is a Polar Vortex on its way.
With temperatures predicted to fall below zero, what other excuse do you need to stay inside, have a duvet day and binge-watch a show on Netflix. If you’ve already rinsed out the usual suspects like Stranger Things or The Crown and you’re looking for something to get stuck into, then keep reading we’ve got four juicy shows for you to binge.
Without any further ado, let’s get started.
March 8: Marvel’s Jessica Jones - Season 2
First up is a show we told you about last month. This Netflix Original is back with season two as private investigator Jessica Jones tries in vain to get back a sense of ‘normality’, after murdering her nemesis - Kilgrave - at the end of season one.
The undercover superhero’s secret is no longer undercover, so upon receiving a new case to handle, she is forced to come to terms with who she really is and delve in to her past to find out how she got here.
Jessica Jones’s character is brought to life by the formidable Krysten Ritter. Rachel Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss and Eka Darville also star.
March 9: Love - Season 3
This series is more light-hearted and definitely one for the adults. Love is entering its third and final season on Netflix.
For main characters Gus and Mickey it’s been a long, hard and complicated journey. By season three they have finally reached their destination, a committed relationship.
As cliché as it sounds the couple go through ups, downs, ins and outs only to realise that along the complicated journey all they really need is love. Eurgh, pass the sick bucket!
It sounds like a cheesy rom-com but it’s actually pretty hilarious and not cutesy at all. Expect some tongue-in-cheek humour mixed with outright belly-laughs.
March 20: The Stand Ups - Season 2
Continuing with the belly-laughs, next up we have a Netflix Original comedy series. The second season of The Standups is coming to Netflix a bit later in the month, but it’s going to be worth the wait.
Just like the first season, you can expect six 30-minute sets, all filmed live at the Globe Theatre in LA. You may recognise a few of the comics as there’s Rachel Feinstein, Kyle Kinane, Joe List, Brent Morin, Aparna Nancherla, and Gina Yashere all appearing on stage.
Laughter is good for the soul and burns 40 calories within just 15 minutes so step away from that treadmill and put down the kettlebell.
The trailer for season two isn't out yet but have a look at what you missed in season one, which is also still available on Netflix.
March 30 - Lemony Snickets A Series Of Unfortunate Events Season 2
You’ve got quite an eclectic list here and we’ve got another one to throw into the mix. A Series of Unfortunate Events is based on the best-selling book series penned by Lemony Snicket (the pen name of novellist Daniel Handler).
Season two takes us further into the twisted tale of the Baudelaire orphans Violet, Klaus and Sunny and their encounters with Count Olaf (Patrick Harris). He pulls out every devious trick he can muster to get his grubby hands on their inheritance.
Through thwarting Olaf’s cunning plans, the siblings begin to decipher clues leading to how their parents really died and uncover long-held family secrets.
If you liked the film of the same name, starring Jim Carrey, then you’ll like the series too as there's more comedic mystery to keep you glued to your screen.
Netflix on your telly
If by now you don’t already have a Netflix account and haven't even managed to weasel a password out of someone that does then where have you been?
No worries, we’ve got a few tips on how to sort this problem out. Don’t say we never give you anything.
Netflix - Straight up with no ketchup
If you find yourself in a pickle when your best mate changes their Netflix password (how rude?!) you’ll have to go straight to the source. Luckily Netflix offers a free 30-day trial so you can have a binge, see if you like it and if you do then it costs £5.99 a month for the basic subscription. For the standard package with HD streaming and the ability to watch it on two screen at one time it’s £7.99 a month.
The premium package is £9.99 a month for Ultra HD and the ability to have four of family or friends stream on a different screen at the same time. Top titles like Black Mirror, Suits and Stranger Things, are all available to watch on the service with new show releases announced each month.
TalkTalk, BT or Virgin Media TV customers can all stream Netflix straight to your TV through your TV box. If you don’t have any of these services all is not lost. You can access it through a games console, Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick or Apple TV devices.
Unlimited data for Netflix
Yeah but what about on the go? For the long commute to and from work, Three and Vodafone both have options that give you unlimited data specifically for streaming Netflix.
Three has added Go Binge to its pay-monthly Advanced plans so you can use video and music streaming sites including Netflix, TVPlayer, Apple Music, Deezer and SoundCloud. As long as you have some of your data allowance left, you can stream without dipping into your tariff.
It’s a similar sort of concept with Vodafone except you have to pay a little extra each month. Vodafone has a range of Video, Chat, Social and Music passes that you can add to your pay-monthly plan.
The Video Pass is £7 a month and you’ll be able to watch content on Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Prime Video and DisneyLife without having to worry about any data limits.
