From new reality shows like Marriage or Mortgage and film debuts like Yes Day, to older flicks like Crazy Rich Asians, Little and The Nun joining the platform, Netflix has something for everyone lined up this month.

If you’re looking for something more short-form, there’s a host of brand new series set to arrive on the streamer – psychological thriller The One premieres next week, while Spanish crime drama Sky Rojo is available to watch towards the end of March.
