The Mandalorian – Season 3 – Episode 1 - March 1

This blockbuster Star Wars spin-off series returns for a third season, picking up slightly after the end of season two. The show’s lead character Din Djarin / The Mandalorian (aka Mando, played by Pedro Pascal) had just said goodbye to Grogu, (aka Baby Yoda) and fans were devastated. Now, after the events of The Book of Boba Fett, the duo are back together and ready for another adventure.

Empire Of Light - March 1

Sam Mendes’ latest film stars Olivia Colman and Micheal Ward as a cinema duty manager and employee in Margate in the Eighties who start to have a sexual relationship. The film has been described as a “loving ode to cinema” by The Standard. “Empire of Light is a touching yarn that will strike a chord with audiences and sentimental voters of the Academy,” it continued. Toby Jones and Colin Firth also star.

Abbott Elementary - Season 2 - March 1

This ABC mockumentary sitcom about a poorly funded elementary school in Philadelphia has picked up dozens of awards since its December 2021 release, including Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes in January. Creator Quinta Brunson was also nominated three times in the comedy category at the Emmy Awards in September, the first black woman to achieve such a feat. In season two the drama continues, as the group of dedicated teachers do their best to navigate the dysfunctional public school system.

Finding Michael - March 3

It’s a terrible story: In 1999, Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews’s older brother, Michael, became the youngest Briton to ever summit Mount Everest. But he died when descending the summit on that same trip, and his body was never found. This documentary follows Matthews and he returns to Everest, 24 years later, to try and find his brother’s body.

UnPrisoned - March 10

This new comedy series stars Kerry Washington as a therapist and single mom whose life changes dramatically when her father (played by The Good Fight’s Delroy Lindo) is released from prison. He comes to live with her as he’s getting on his feet, and needless to say, it’s a bit of an adjustment for both parties.

Boston Strangler - March 17

This new film is based on the true story of the serial killer who terrorized Boston in the Sixties. The killer murdered 13 women over a period of one and a half years, each time killing the woman in her own apartment without having forced entry. Keira Knightly stars as real-life journalist Loretta McLaughlin, who published an article linking the killings before the police had made the same connections.

Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming, with Dave Letterman - March 17

In this special documentary U2’s Bono and The Edge invite Dave Letterman along to spend time with the duo before and after a concert in Dublin, U2’s hometown. Letterman talks to the musicians about their songwriting processes, their inspirations and their iconic songs. The film, which compiles old footage, with interviews and sequences from the live Dublin concert, has been directed by Morgan Neville, who directed the Oscar-winning 2014 documentary 20 Feet from Stardom.
