March 2024 TV Preview: 10 New Shows to Watch

Who said March Madness is just for sports? With a slew of spring premieres across cable and streaming, narrative television is just as mad during the long, unpredictable month.

Just as we did in January and February, IndieWire’s TV team compiled the March TV premieres we’re most excited about — that’s new TV only, and it’s still an impressive list every time. March marks the premieres of buzzy book adaptations “Apples Never Fall” (Peacock) and “We Were the Lucky Ones” (Hulu), not to mention the sci-fi juggernaut “3 Body Problem” from “Game of Thrones” executive producers. Disney+ has heroic offerings from outside the MCU, with revival series “X-Men: 97” and the inspiring docuseries “Madu.” Max peeks into the lives of female journalists on the campaign trail in “The Girls on the Bus,” Guy Ritchie adapts his own film into Netflix’s “The Gentlemen,” and Apple takes us into the tense days that followed Abraham Lincoln’s assassination with “Manhunt.” If all that has you wanting to take a vacation, we suggest Palm Beach — oh, we’re not flying you out, but Apple’s “Palm Royale” might just transport you.

Even movies are about TV in March, with the 96th Academy Awards telecast on ABC March 10. After an excellent year in film (not just in quality, but at the box office), what better way for Hollywood’s finest to celebrate cinematic achievement than on TV? Like March’s in-between weather, the TV slate has surprises in store. For more on 2024’s TV offerings, check out our TV preview for the year, or our specific Netflix and HBO/Max lists. We can’t predict the outcome of March Madness, but we predict a whole lot of bingeing along the way.

Here are 10 new TV shows to watch in March 2024.
