Shadow and Bone season 2, a Luther feature film, Murder Mystery 2 lead Netflix’s March offerings.
Shadow and Bone returns for its second season, continuing the saga based on Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grishaverse books. The new episodes finds Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li) honing her sun-summoning powers. And she has to do it quick, since General Aleksander Kirigan (Ben Barnes) has grown stronger and assembled a terrifying army of indestructible shadow monsters. Archie Renaux, Zoë Wanamaker, Danielle Galligan, Calahan Skogman, Freddy Carter, and Amita Suman are all back for the new season, with newcomers Nikolai Lantsov, Anna Leong Brophy, Lewis Tan, and Jack Wolfe joining the ride.
Murder Mystery 2 picks up with Nick (Adam Sandler) and Audrey Spitz (Jennifer Aniston) now working as private investigators out of their own agency. After their last crime-solving outing, how hard could it be pursuing this as an actual career? The answer: pretty hard, actually. As luck would have it, though, their buddy Maharaja gets himself kidnapped, leading the duo to put their investigator hats on and go solve the case. What could go wrong? Mark Strong, Mélanie Laurent, Jodie Turner-Smith, Enrique Arce, Tony Goldwyn, Annie Mumolo, Zurin Villanueva, and Kuhoo Verma also star, with Adeel Akhtar reprising his role as the Maharajah and John Kani returning as Colonel Ulenga.
Idris Elba makes his triumphant return as DCI John Luther in the Netflix original movie Luther: The Fallen Sun. Creator of the BBC hit series Neil Cross returned to pen the movie, which finds Luther breaking out of prison to stop a killer (Andy Serkis) from wreaking violent havoc on the general public. Dermot Crowley reprises his role as Martin Schenk, with Cynthia Erivo, Wunmi Mosaku, Paul McGann, and Hermione Norris also starring. After a short theatrical run that began Friday, February 24, the movie will touch down to the streamer on March 10.
