The streaming giant has upped the ante on original programming and content and hasn’t been content to rest on old standbys and series. With multiple films and series garnering award nominations (i.e. Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Ava Duvernay’s When They See Us), Netflix entered the conversation as a legitimate production company and studio in 2018.
That’s not to say that they aren’t pushing forward their original, more lighthearted fare and action stories.
Coming back on March 11th, season 3 of On My Block promises to be a fun romp for the crew from East L.A. After finding the long-lost treasure that was stolen and hidden by one of the local gangs, Jamal, Monsé and Ruby tried to wash the money bit by bit in season 2. As that really didn’t work, they got caught up trying to get Cesar back in his older brother’s good graces. When Spooky takes Cesar back into the fold, he takes the found funds as collateral…negating Jamal’s hard work. Season 3 picks up where they left off: with the crew kidnapped by mysterious people. The shenanigans are sure to be bananas.
Returning for season 2 on March 13th, South Korea’s Kingdom is bringing ancient zombies, palace intrigues and the age old fight of good versus evil. In season 1, the crown prince sees his deceased father rise up as an undead and is quickly swept up into a national plot to destroy the kingdom of Hanyang.
Visually stunning and exceptionally well-written, Kingdom is a great addition to the repertoire of viewers who enjoy apocalyptic series and action adventure.
Debuting on March 20th, Self-Made: Inspired by the Life of Madame C.J. Walker stars October Spencer as the first Black woman millionaire in the U.S. Starting from her humble beginnings to the heights of her success, this series is the brainchild of Spencer and basketball superstar Lebron James’s production company.
