1. The Mandalorian

  • Premiere date: March 1

Star Wars fans better gear up for another season of The Mandalorian. The Last of Us star Pedro Pascal is reprising his role as Din Djarin in season 3, where he returns home to face consequences for committing a cardinal sin. Plus, he’s caring for Grogu (David Acord) who’s cute but quite a handful.

2. Sex/Life

Season 1 of Sex/Life introduces viewers to Billie (Sarah Shahi), a suburban mom who’s growing tired of her boring routing with her husband. And in season 2 (premiering on March 2), she explores other relationship options.

3. Daisy Jones and the Six

  • Premiere date: March 3

The show hasn’t premiered yet, and it’s already making headlines because it’s based on the wildly popular book by Taylor Jenkins Reid. The story is about a ’70s rock band that called it quits at the peak of their success. Fast-forward one decade, and the musicians are finally ready to explain what happened.

4. You

  • Premiere date: March 9

Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) may seem normal to his peers, but he’s far from it. He is known for developing deep obsessions with the females in his life, and he won’t stop pursuing them until he gets what he wants. The first part of season 4 ends on a cliffhanger with Joe and Rhys (Ed Speleers), so be sure to tune into the second half beginning March 9.

5. Luther: The Fallen Sun

  • Premiere date: March 10

6. Ted Lasso

  • Premiere date: March 15

Ted Lasso is releasing its third—and likely final— season.
