Arrested Development, Season 5, Part 2 (March 15): After an almost year-long hiatus, Arrested Development returns with the second and final part of season 5. The eight episodes will pick up where part one left off, as the Bluth family tries to solve the mysterious disappearance of Lucille Two (Liza Minnelli).
Triple Frontier (March 15): Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal bring some serious star power to Netflix as five military vet friends who reunite to rob a South American drug lord.

Turn Up Charlie, Season 1 (March 15): Did you know that Sexiest Man Alive Idris Elba is also a DJ? He's bringing those talents to Coachella this year, and to this new comedy series (which he also co-created) in which he plays — you guessed it — a struggling DJ who might finally get his big break after becoming the caretaker for his famous best friend's troublesome daughter.

The Dirt (March 22): If you liked Bohemian Rhapsody, you might want to check out this biopic about iconic '80s glam metal band Motley Crue, based on their best-selling memoir of the same name.

Santa Clarita Diet, Season 3 (March 29): The cannibalistic comedy returns for a third season as the Hammonds continue to cope with their, erm, bloody reality — 'til death (or undeath) do them part. (Photo via Netflix)
On My Block, Season 2 (TBA): The coming-of-age comedy returns to (hopefully) resolve season 1's dramatic cliffhanger. Not many details about season 2 are known yet (nor is there a set release date), but we're looking forward to getting back into Monse, Ruby, Cesar, and Jamal's world in their South Central LA neighborhood.
