All the sci-fi TV & movies streaming in March 2023: ‘The Mandalorian,’ ’Poker Face,’ ‘The Last of Us’ finale

Mando and Baby Yoda ride again as Peacock, HBO Max and Apple TV+ prep big season sendoffs.

March marks the start of stormy season for lots of us (at least here on Earth), and aptly enough, there’s a perfect storm of old and new brewing on the small screen this month as a handful of genre TV favorites either say hello or bid adieu to their current seasons. Oh, and also, Mando and his lil’ green Star Wars riding buddy have picked March as the month to swing back into galactic action.

Peacock got an early start with the late-February arrival of horror smash M3GAN, debuting the tiny franchise-making killer’s murder-movie spree in both its theatrical and unrated versions. Peacock’s also the place to catch the hugely anticipated Season 1 finale of Rian Johnson’s clever murder-mystery series Poker Face, with star Natasha Lyonne as human lie detector Charlie Cale closing out her first stint on the run from the Vegas thugs who know she knows too much. The end is just the beginning, though: Poker Face already has a Season 2 green light at Peacock.

Goodbyes are also in store at HBO Max, where The Last of Us brings Bella Ramsey (Ellie) and the ubiquitous Pedro Pascal (Joel) to the end of their spore-infested Season 1 journey in the series adaptation of the apocalyptic PlayStation video game franchise. Don’t sweat the end, though: Like Poker Face, The Last of Us is destined for a second act, with Season 2 of the Naughty Dog game-based series already in the works. March also marks the return of classic super-sleuth Perry Mason at HBO Max, with star Matthew Rhys due back in court this month for the show’s Season 2 premiere.

While we’re talking finales, Apple TV+ is sending off M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy Servant series as the show’s fourth and final season settles the supernatural score once and for all. Nell Tiger-Free stars as Leanne, a seriously devoted babysitting housemaid, in bite-sized 30-minute episodes that’ve consistently gotten more unsettling as the whole domestic train wreck has rolled along. Will the baby vanish if Leanne does too? One way or another, we’ll know the chilling answer this month.

Big endings aren’t the only genre tales to tell in March, as Netflix gets set to hop back into the obsessive world of You as the show’s fourth season swings back around to begin its second act. Also new at Netflix this month is the Season 2 premiere of Shadow and Bone, with the series’ ensemble cast embracing the recent crossover to a new “M” rating as the quasi-magical fantasy stakes rise ever higher.

Also new is the series premiere of True Lies, adapted at CBS and Paramount+ from James Cameron’s epic 1990s spy-action blockbuster that originally starred Arnold Schwarzenegger. Paramount+ also welcomes a new supernatural young-adult genre entry in the vein of Buffy the Vampire Slayer into the fold this month, as new series School Spirits arrives with star Peyton List in the role of a not-fully-dead phantom who’s stranded in the afterlife.

Over at Prime Video, March heats up with the series premiere of Donald Glover’s Swarm, a horror-thriller that tracks a fan’s dark obsession with a fictional Beyoncé-like pop star. Later this month, Prime Video also hosts the launch of sci-fi drama The Power, based on the eponymous 2016 novel from author Naomi Alderman.

Now, back to that Star Wars thing: The Mandalorian enters uncharted territory as Season 3 blasts off at Disney+, taking Mando (Pedro Pascal, again) and the Force-sensitive Grogu to our Beskar-clad hero’s devastated homeworld of Mandalore. Expect less solo gun-slinging and more Mandalorian team-building as Din Djarin assembles an entire posse to finish (and maybe even start) a fight that’s too big for just one lonely bounty hunter. For good galactic measure, March also marks the Season 2 finale of the Disney+ animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

There’re even more genre goodies in store across the dial, with Peacock saving the full four-film cycle of The Hunger Games for a March 31 platform premiere. Hulu is debuting Boston Strangler, an original scare drama film starring Keira Knightley, this month as well, while Apple TV+ marks the beginning of Ted Lasso’s third season and the premiere of science-y drama Tetris, a historically-inspired film starring Taron Egerton and Toby Jones based on the early contest to win rights to the iconic video game.
