You’ll like it if you like: Bonnie and Clyde, Public Enemies and The Untouchables
From 1932 to 1934, Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow robbed dozens of banks, stores and gas stations in the Midwest, leaving a trail of dead bodies in their wake. The Highwaymen takes a step back from the couple’s much-romanticized narrative, focusing instead on the two Texas rangers—Frank Hamer (Kevin Costner) and Maney Gault (Woody Harrelson)—who finally brought them down. Netflix Canada, March 29.
Santa Clarita Diet: Season Three
You’ll like it if you like: Dexter, The Good Place and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Sheila Hammond (Drew Barrymore), her husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and their young daughter are living a seemingly perfect existence in Santa Clarita, California.

Santa Clarita Diet is the strangest—and silliest—show to be found anywhere. Netflix Canada, March 29.
Barry: Season Two
You’ll like it if you like: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Fargo and Better Call Saul
Created by Saturday Night Live alumnus Bill Hader and Alec Berg, Barry casts Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman who finds himself drawn into a community of acting students while on assignment in Los Angeles. Hader is nothing short of sensational, but it’s co-star Henry Winkler who almost always steals the show (the two both won Emmys for their roles last year, after all). Barry is pitch-black comedy done right. Crave, March 31.

Starring Julia-Louis Dreyfus, the seven-episode series follows former vice president—and president—Selina Meyer as she hits the campaign trail to try and get back into the Oval Office once again. Tony Hale and Anna Chlumsky also star. Crave, March 31.
