Best TV Series Coming to Peacock in March 2023
Mar 7, 2023
March is almost here, meaning it’s time for the streaming services to release their upcoming content for the month. Here, it’s Peacock’s turn, and they’ve got a variety of new and continuing shows set to drop throughout March. February was a busy month for the NBCUniversal-owned streamer. Standouts included the second season of Bel-Air, the dramatic re-imagining of the Will Smith-led sitcom, and Natasha Lyonne’s critically acclaimed Poker Face’s debut season.
March is looking to continue that hot streak with a variety of new arrivals. Family-friendly animation fans will want to check out the new season of Dragons: The Nine Realms, the latest entry in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise. True crime buffs should mark their calendar for the miniseries Who Killed Robert Wone? based on an unsolved murder case. There seems never to be enough reality dating shows out there, with Queens Court adding the latest celebrity twist to the format. Finally, if you thought Hollywood has run out of stories to tell about Real Housewives after 17 years and dozens of series, fear not. More content is on the way.
Let’s now take a look at all the new arrivals making their way to Peacock in March 2023.
Dragons: The Nine Realms Season 5 (Mar. 2)
How to Train Your Dragon has become one of the biggest animated franchises in modern movie-going history. The three films have collectively grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide, and the franchise shows no signs of slowing down.
Dragons: The Nine Realms, the third TV series in the franchise, originally premiered in 2021. It places the story in modern times, more than 1,000 years after the events of the films. While studying a massive trench left by a comet, a group of kids discovers the hidden truth about dragons.
In an unusual instance, Dragons: The Nine Realms is released simultaneously on Peacock and Hulu. As a result, viewers can check out new adventures with their favorite dragons when the fifth season premieres on both platforms on Thursday, Mar. 2.
Who Killed Robert Wone? (Mar. 7)
This miniseries details the real-life unsolved murder of attorney Robert Wone. In 2006, Wone was found stabbed to death at a house in Washington, D.C.
The homeowner and friend of Wone reported his stabbing to the police, but a lack of physical evidence didn’t give them much to go on. With the homeowner and his roommates quickly identified as suspects, the investigators worked to uncover the truth while Wone’s friends sought to clear their names.

Maybe we’ll have a Tiger King situation here, and the show can inspire a new look into the cold case. The miniseries is broken up into two episodes, both of which will be released on Tuesday, Mar. 7.
Queens Court (Mar. 16)
This new dating reality series puts a different spin on the familiar format. Instead of your average, every day, flawlessly beautiful contestants, Queens Court features established celebrities entering the dating pool.
Singer and TV personality Tamar Braxton, model Evelyn Lozada, and singer Nivea are looking to find their perfect man; a King fit for their Queens. The leads are no strangers to reality TV, with Braxton gaining fame on Braxton Family Values and Lozada rising to prominence on Basketball Wives.

Actor Holly Robinson Peete and husband Rodney Peete serve as hosts, guiding the women through the ups and downs of dating. Viewers can tune in to see if the three famous faces can find their perfect suitor when the series premieres on Thursday, Mar. 16.
The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 3 (Mar. 23)
Since 2006, The Real Housewives franchise has existed in one form or another. In the U.S. alone, the housewives have been real in Orange County, Atlanta, New York, New Jersey, Miami, and more. That’s not even including the international adaptations set in Australia, Canada, France, Italy, South Africa, the United Kingdom, etc. You get the idea.
With how well-traveled and real these housewives have become, it only makes sense for a show devoted specifically to travel. The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, the first series in the franchise produced exclusively for Peacock, follows cast members from previous series as they’re real on the ultimate vacation. Season three will be set in Thailand and feature stars such as Gizelle Bryant, Leah McSweeney, and Portia Williams, among others.
Fans of the housewives can turn into the third season when it premieres on Thursday, Mar. 23.
Natasha Lyonne’s critically acclaimed Poker Face will continue its inaugural season in March, with the season finale set to drop on Thursday, Mar. 9. However, any fears of a potentially unresolved finale should be eased with the news that the show’s already received a renewal. Bel-Air is also set to continue its second season, with new episodes releasing throughout the month on Thursdays.
After spending over half a century on NBC, Days of Our Lives moved off broadcast television onto Peacock in 2022. New episodes continue to release daily on the streamer.
Finally, just when you thought there couldn’t be any more real housewives, The Real Housewives of Miami’s fifth season is ongoing. The season will end on Thursday, Mar. 16, conveniently just in time for Ultimate Girls Trip to arrive the next week, ensuring viewers won’t have to go very long without the housewives and their realness.
