It will be tough for any other month this year to match the premieres that March brings. The latest Emmy winners for best drama and best comedy return, in what could be the last season for both of them. Disney+’s biggest TV hit will release new episodes, as will one of the shows most surrounded by social media buzz last year.

The Spanish black action comedy Sin Huellas will be released on Amazon Prime Video on the 17th. Hasta El Cielo, which appears the same day on Netflix, picks up the thread of the suspenseful film of the same name. Idris Elba once again plays the detective Luther in a Netflix movie about the iconic character. Extrapolations, released on Apple TV+ on March 17, jumps to the near future to imagine the consequences of climate change. And at the end of the month, Rabbit Hole, released March 26 on Paramount+, will once again follow Kiefer Sutherland’s conspiracies and escapades.

EL PAÍS picks out six of the best television shows being released this month.

The Mandalorian

Grogu and Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) in the third season of ‘The Mandalorian.’

We return to the faraway galactic adventures of Din Djarin and Grogu, who we saw for the last time in The Book of Boba Fett. As usual, we know little about the plot of the new episodes beyond the official synopsis. Pedro Pascal’s character will have to face the consequences of the events of the second season and attempt to redeem himself. The story will continue exploring the two protagonists’ father-son relationship, along with Mando’s adventures as a bounty hunter. The show will delight newcomers and longtime Star Wars fans alike.

Where and when to watch it? The first of eight episodes premieres March 1 on Disney+, followed by weekly releases.

Daisy Jones & The Six

Riley Keough, in ‘Daisy Jones & The Six.’

Daisy Jones & The Six was a fictional rock band that shot to fame in the 1970s and fell just as quickly. Years later, its members share their versions of what happened. The story combines mockumentary with indie-inflected musical drama to adapt the eponymous book to the screen, with Riley Keough and Sam Claflin as its protagonists. An excellent original soundtrack, with 24 songs composed for the show and recorded by the cast, and the show’s narrative energy, sets the series apart.

Where and when to watch it? Friday the 3rd on Amazon Prime Video.

Perry Mason

Matthew Rhys as Perry Mason in the second season of the HBO series.

The Great Depression is the setting for lawyer Perry Mason, played by Matthew Rhys, who gives the character a permanent air of defeat. More than two years after its first season, the new episodes bring another case to Mason and his assistant, Della Street. The murder of the son of a powerful oil family sets off the detectives’ exploration of a wide-ranging conspiracy. The creators of The Knick take the reins of a second season that critics say is even more solid than the first.

Where and when to watch it? Tuesday the 7th on HBO Max.

Ted Lasso

Nick Mohammed and Jason Sudeikis in the fourth episode of the third season of ‘Ted Lasso.’

AFC Richmond has found success, but now it faces the challenges of the Premier League and the bets that put it at the bottom of the rankings. Nate is the coach of West Ham United, the rival team. Other characters will have to confront new situations: Roy Kent is now Richmond’s assistant coach, Keeley is the head of her own PR agency and Ted is finding it more difficult to be away from his son. The team behind the series that captivated audiences with its combination of humor and emotion will take on this season as if it were the last: its future is yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, we’ll enjoy this installment.

Where and when to see it? The first episode will be available on Apple TV+ on Wednesday the 15th.

Yellowjackets

Christina Ricci and Elijah Wood in the second season of ‘Yellowjackets.’

What happened when a girls’ soccer team survived a plane crash in the middle of the woods? Years later, some of them try to reconstruct their lives, but the past continues to haunt them. The series, featuring Melanie Lynskey, Juliette Lewis and Christina Ricci, produced an addictive first season that, week after week, fed social media speculation about on-screen events. The new season adds actors including Elijah Wood, as a detective who makes things complicated for adult Misty, and Lauren Ambrose, the adult version of Van.

Where and when to watch it? The first episode will be released on Movistar Plus+ on Friday the 24th.

Succession

Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook and Kieran Culkin in the fourth season of ‘Succession.’

Excitement about the Roys’ return combines with disappointment after the show’s creator, Jesse Armstrong, announced that this will be the final season. But before the goodbye, the siblings fighting for their father’s media conglomerate will unleash a new round of backstabbing. Both fun and tragic, the show features some of the best writing and acting on television today. We wish it would go on forever, but fortunately, it will end on its own terms.

Where and when to watch it? The first episode of the fourth season will be released on HBO Max on Monday the 27th.
