Here are the TV shows premiering in March 2023 that you just cannot miss

It’s not often that we get too worked up about a month of streaming more TV, but March is shaping up to be pretty epic. And, we are not just saying that because Ted Lasso is back. It’s more than that.

It’s a busy month in streaming land, so to make sure you don’t miss anything too crucial; here is our guide to the most exciting new shows and premieres to arrive in March.

The Mandalorian, March 1

Yes, Mando is back and baby Yoda, too. When last we left our ragtag crew at the fringes of the Star Wars saga, the Mandalorian had waved goodbye to Grogu and baby Yoda went to learn to be a Jedi knight alongside Luke Skywalker. Now, season three is finally here and we can see what happens as the dynamic duo reunite in what is likely to be some sort of pitched battle to liberate the planet Mandalore. We cannot wait. And we don’t have to, it premieres today, March 1 on Disney+.

Survivor, March 1

This show is of increasing interest to us here in Toronto simply because people from the GTA continue to kick butt on the show including two of the past three winners: Maryanne Oketch won season 42 and Erika Casupanan won season 41. Both have connections to Toronto. Of course, to be fair, we let an American win last season. Season 44 premieres on Paramount Plus and CBS today!

Daisy Jones & the Six, March 3

So excited. This show, based on the novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, looks like it has it all. It’s sexy, rock-and-roll energy, stellar cast and compelling, conflict-riddled plot line has us champing at the streaming bit to get at the first three episodes to be released on March 3.

The Voice, March 8

It’s an almost entirely new bag at The Voice for the new, 23rd season. Kelly Clarkson returns, and the OG of show, Blake Shelton is back, but that’s it. Two new coaches settle in for the season: Niall Horan, and Chance the Rapper. Hmm, we are just not sure. But, for Kelly, we’re willing to give it a shot.

Ted Lasso, March 15

The man, the myth, the legend, Coach Ted Lasso returns to the pitch for another season of sitcom brilliance. This time, things are getting a bit more, let’s say, real. For the new season, we find Lasso fresh from a well-documented anxiety attack now having to deal with one of his coaches ditching the fabled Richmond side to head up another team owned by the show’s resident baddie. Oh, it’s going to be good.

Essex County, March 19

Okay, we are so excited about this series. It’s based upon the acclaimed graphic novel of the same name. The show is co-written by the creator of the original graphic novel Jeff Lemire. This is true made-in-Ontario story starring some fantastic actors including the amazing Molly Parker as well as Stephen McHattie. Lemire, for those who don’t know, is also the creative wunderkind behind the Netflix series Sweet Tooth (Check it out, if you haven’t seen it yet. So good.).

The Night Agent, March 23

If it’s one thing we love, it’s a good spy thriller and Netflix’s new show The Night Agent looks to be that and more. It stars Gabriel Basso as an very-low-level FBI agent who has his life turned upside with an innocent phone call. We love The Recruit, and The Night Agent has a similar vibe.

Yellowjackets, March 26

This show, streaming on Crave, stunned in the world in its first season thanks to its combination of supernatural horror, murder mystery and good old high school drama. And we were very amused. Anything with Juliette Lewis is gold, let’s just get that straight right now. It’s been almost a year-and-a-half but season two of this thrilling new show that follows a group of teenagers involved in a plane crash in 1996 is finally set to premiere on March 26.

Rabbit Hole, March 26

Toronto native Kiefer Sutherland is back to try and save the world once more. Doesn’t this guy ever get tired? This one hits a little different as Sutherland’s character works as a corporate espionage agent before he gets framed for murder. It looks intense and thrilling, with a great cast, including the wonderful Charles Dance. And, come on, it’s Kiefer.

Succession, March 26

Everyone loves a good black comedy, and Succession is definitely that. The award-winning HBO series, which streams on Crave, centres on the family behind a global media and entertainment conglomerate. The gripping series is back for one last kick at the capitalist can with its fourth and final season.
