And of course, aside from all those popular titles you know are already great, there's a whole slew of originals coming as well But what's worth watching from all those new ones? Ahead, we list down Netflix March 2020 releases you should definitely keep an eye on. 

Spenser Confidential

Slated for this month is Netflix's blockbuster, Spenser Confidential, streaming this 6 March. Perfect for some weeknight thrill, the action-comedy stars Mark Wahlberg as the titular character, Spenser. A former police detective, he teams up with Hawk (Winston Duke) an ex-con and aspiring fighter. Together, they delve into Boston's underworld and unravel a murder conspiracy. Full of gripping twists, this movie loosely based on the novel Wonderland marks the fifth collaboration of director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg, with the latter having starred in films like Patriots Day and Mile 22.

Lost Girls

For those who enjoy true crime films, Lost Girls is a definite must-watch this month. Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last January, the mystery crime drama is based on Robert Kolker's book Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery. The film centres on Mari Gilbert (Amy Ryan), a desperate mother fighting to uncover the truth about her daughter's disappearance. Her relentlessness investigation forces the law enforcement to uncover the truth behind a series of unsolved murders in the Long Island. Available this 13 March, the harrowing drama will keep you on your toes, as you go along an emotional and tense journey with the characters.

Kingdom Season 2

As you can see, Netflix is definitely not scrimping on the thrill it hopes to give us this month. Another much-awaited title returning this 13 March is Kingdom. Last year, the historical horror series from South Korea definitely kept our hearts pounding. We watched Ju Ji Hoon as Crown Prince Lee Chang address political issues and prevent a mysterious plague. And now that it's back on its second season, tensions are at their highest. We can't wait to get hordes of zombie action creatively reimagined.

Self Made: Inspired by The Life of Madam C.J. Walker

This month, we commemorate women and their great impact on the world. And what better way to celebrate that than by watching Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker? The American series recounts the untold story of entrepreneur C.J. Walker, played by award-winning actress, Octavia Spencer. Despite the hostile environment at the turn of the century, she managed to build a haircare empire, making her the first African-American self-made female millionaire in the US. It's set to be a single limited series divided into four parts, so make sure to catch it when it goes live on 20 March.


Last but not the least, suckers for heartfelt family dramas should keep an eye out for Tigertail. Though there's no exact date announced for its release yet, screenwriter Alan Young, known for his work on Parks and Recreation and Masters of None, confirmed his Netflix Original movie debut this March. Inspired by his family's story, Tigertail starts off in 1950s Taiwan to present-day New York. Spanning generations and touching on themes such as repression and regret, Alan Young's first drama film will surely be quite the tear-jerker. John Cho from Searching and Tzi Ma from The Farewell will be playing the lead role as the patriarch Grover, at different points in their life. They'll also be joined by up and coming Asian American actors like Christine Ko and Hayden Szeto.
