As springtime officially begins in the UK, Netflix is releasing plenty of shows to get excited about.

However, for those who enjoy some spring cleaning, there’s not much ‘out with the old’ in March’s line-up. Instead, the focus is on follow ups to all our favourite television series of previous years.

For example, there’s a new entry to the ever-popular Marvel-Netflix TV series. Jessica Jones is back for a second series with Krysten Ritter at the helm once again. This time the reluctant superhero is on a mission to discover her origins. David Tennant returns in a guest-starring role as the nefarious Kilgrave. The series is one of the best-reviewed Marvel properties on Rotten Tomatoes so it’s sure to be a real treat to see Jessica Jones back in action.

On the theme of second series, there are also comebacks for Neil Patrick-Harris’ wickedly witty A Series Of Unfortunate Events and Drew Barrymore’s sunny zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet

There’s also the brand new female-led sci-fi action drama, Annihilation which Verdict featured in our list of the most exciting films of 2018.

Over on the licensed content side of things there are a few gems (although admittedly they’re few and far between.)

For family entertainment, Disney’s newest adaption of The Jungle Book with Idris Elba, Bill Murray and Ben Kingsley providing the voice work for some of Rudyard Kipling’s most beloved animals. There’s also plenty of new Marvel flicks including Captain America: The Winter Solider, Captain America: Civil War, and Guardians Of The Galaxy.

For adults, there’s a few other gems to look out for. For starters, the 2015 horror instant-classic, The Witch. There are few recent horror movies that have shown such a unique tone or dedication to the form of horror.

There’s also the BAFTA-nominated and beautifully-rugged God’s Own Country, an LGBT-themed film that was described by many as a British Brokeback Mountain. The film was actually completed before the Brexit referendum, but due to the timing of its release and the themes encompassed, it has also been described as the first post-Brexit film.

Finally, the other must-watch of this month’s selection is the classic Dustin Hoffman-starring Kramer Vs. Kramer. While it’s a little dated now, the film really was a landmark piece of work when it was released in 1979. The film really changed the conversation around family law which had, up until then, usually favoured the mother in custody battles, regardless of the father’s involvement.
