It’s the beginning of March, and as ever, the start of the month means there are many new shows available to watch on several streaming platforms. In fact, there are so many shows you can binge-watch this month that you might not know where to start. Below, discover six new (or at least somewhat new) shows currently available on streaming platforms.

Bridgerton

Beloved TV producer Shonda Rhimes has a new show on Netflix that adapts Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton book series for the small screen. The show is set in 19th-century Regency England and takes on a feminist perspective for the era. 

Bridgerton shows the scandalous love lives of wealthy, funny, and sometimes lonely London characters in the powerful Bridgerton family. The show premiered on December 25 and has become increasingly popular since then, culminating in series star Regé-Jean Page hosting Saturday Night Live earlier this year.

Nadiya Bakes

Nadiya Hussain baked her way to success by winning the sixth season of The Great British Bake-Off in 2016. Last month, Hussain’s new show, Nadiya Bakes, premiered on Netflix. The first season has eight episodes in which Hussain shares how she makes a range of recipes from delicious everyday baked food on a budget to extravagant celebration cakes. 

Hussain makes baking look easy with her signature approachable style that first made her popular. Watching her shows, it feels like she’s personally invited you to her kitchen to offer helpful tips to level up your baking game.

Witches of Salem

This new Hulu show is set during 1692 and 1693, a time when more than 200 people were accused of performing witchcraft. These accusations led to hearings, prosecutions, and 19 public lynchings. 

Witches of Salem is a historical and supernatural drama that explores the events that led up to the witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts with re-enactments and expert interviews. If you want to have a small binge-watch and watch a short first season, this new supernatural series has four brief episodes that you can enjoy.

WandaVision

Wandavision is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe series on Disney+. The new show’s time period is set after Avengers: Endgame, and the story seems quite different from other MCU storylines. 

Wanda/Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, is the main character. Vision, portrayed by Paul Bettany, is Wanda’s husband, and the couple lives an ideal life in the suburbs like in a classic television sitcom. However, their life seems too much like a sitcom, and they begin to suspect something is wrong while their lines of reality seem to glitch.

Surviving Death

Surviving Death is a new docu-series on Netflix that follows the stories of people who have gone through near-death experiences. The show also dives into exploring research about phenomena such as reincarnation, communicating with the dead, and what the afterlife may resemble. 

Although the topics address old philosophical questions, the show’s director, Ricki Stern, tries to find out what people today have to say about the topic. Their answers, unlike in many similar investigations, stem from their firsthand experiences with dying and communicating with ghosts.
