Bridgerton’s highly-anticipated season 2 return and Ryan Reynolds‘ time-travel adventure The Adam Project lead  Netflix’s March 2022 offerings.

The next installment of Bridgerton loosely follows the events of The Viscount Who Loved Me, the second book in Julia Quinn’s wildly popular series of novels, and pivots the story focus to Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), the eldest of the eight Bridgerton children. His season 1 story ended in heartbreak with him declaring his goal of marrying for duty instead of love, though fate has other plans for the Bridgerton bachelor.

Emmy winner Toni Collette returns to Netflix for thriller series Pieces of Her, which costars Bella Heathcote and is based on the novel by Karin Slaughter.

On the sci-fi front, Ryan Reynolds is Adam Reed in The Adam Project, a story that finds him traveling back to the year 2022. In order to save the future, he must team up with his 12-year-old self, played by Walker Scobell. The movie, directed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things), also stars Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, and Catherine Keener.

If raunchy animated comedy is your bag, don’t forget to check out Human Resources, the hilarious spinoff to Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg’s hit series Big Mouth. On the docuseries front, Bad Vegan: Fame, Fraud, Fugitives (which hails from Chris Smith, the executive producer of  Tiger King) explores how Sarma Melngailis, the celebrity restaurateur behind the glittering New York hotspot Pure Food and Wine, went from being the queen of vegan cuisine to being known as the “Vegan Fugitive.” For some family-friendly entertainment, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe returns for its second season of exciting cartoon fun.

Description: From Chris Smith, the executive producer of Tiger King and director of Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened, comes a wild four-part documentary series that explores how Sarma Melngailis, the celebrity restaurateur behind the glittering New York hotspot Pure Food and Wine, went from being the queen of vegan cuisine to being known as the “Vegan Fugitive.” Shortly after meeting a man named Shane Fox on Twitter in 2011, Melngailis begins draining her restaurant’s funds and funneling the money to Fox after he cons her into believing he could make her dreams — from expanding her food empire to making her beloved pitbull immortal — a reality…but only if she continues to obey his every request without question. A few years later the couple, now married and on the lam after stealing nearly $2 million from the restaurant and its staff, are found holed up in a Tennessee motel by law enforcement. Their undoing? A charge made under Fox’s real name, Anthony Strangis, for a Domino’s pizza. 

Premiere Date: March 16



Description: From the inventive minds that brought us the award winning adult animation favorite Big Mouth comes the even edgier and adult-ier Human Resources. The spin-off pulls back the curtain on the daily lives of the creatures — Hormone Monsters, Depression Kitties, Shame Wizards and many more — that help humans journey through every aspect of life from puberty to parenthood to the twilight years. It quickly becomes clear that though the protagonists are creatures, they have a lot of humanity themselves. Featuring an all-star voice cast— including Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, and David Thewlis reprising their Big Mouth roles as well as Aidy Bryant, Brandon Kyle Goodman, Keke Palmer, and Randall Park among others — Human Resources is not your normal day at the office. The series is co-created and executive produced by Kelly Galuska, Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin.

Premiere Date: March 18



Description: Duty, desire, and scandal collide when viscount Anthony Bridgerton decides to marry, only to meet his match in his intended bride’s headstrong big sister.

Premiere Date: March 25
