TV Calendar March Premieres

March TV Premieres, Finales, Returns, Series Enders and More: Save the Dates

Did you know that five different series — including Bones, Vampire Diaries and, yes, Duck Dynasty — totaling 44 seasons of TV are coming to an end in March?

That’s just one of the things you will learn from perusing TVLine’s hand-dandy, hand-carved calendar of season openers (The Americans, da!), series premieres (Iron Fist is ready to swing), returns (President Kirkman, we hardly know ye), finales and specials on tap for the coming month.

Here is our round-up of March premieres and finales, plus a glimpse at select dates from an extremely active April. Series premieres are in BOLD. Click to zoom/print and save the dates!

  1. Dan says:

    Shouldn’t colony be ending sometime in March?

  2. Lori says:

    Is there any word on criminal minds beyond borders?

  3. Grey says:

    Think you forgot to include The Arrangement on March 5th?

  4. Wrstlgirl says:

    I spy The Americans!!!

  5. Farhana Rawji says:

    Naked and Afraid Season 7 airs on March 5th as well correct?

  6. Tina says:

    Does Nashville have a return date set yet?

  7. The White Princess – 4/16 I believe
    Also, I was under the impression Switched at Birth was ending 4/4, not 4/11
    Big Little Lies finale – 4/2
    Homeland finale – 4/9

  8. Brian says:

    Ripper Street (March 8) and Snatch (March 16)

  9. MMD says:

    Matt – thanks for the calendar. Greatly appreciated :) Have set my dvr accordingly and marked my calendar.

  10. T.W.S.S. says:

    I hope PBS renews Mercy Street for an eight-episode third season.

  11. Mac says:

    I’m so glad I saw this, I had no idea they’d announced a return date for Doctor Who already. I am deeply shamed.

  12. Mommaknowsbest says:

    So pleased to see that Designated Survivor will FINALLY be making a comeback!!

  13. kmw says:

    Mourning Bones already(: But I thought their last two episodes were being put together on the same night which means Bones would start at 8 P.M. Of course this being FOX they probably changed their minds about that. So sad it is coming to an end

    • ginrnbsn says:

      I’m in mourning too! No other tv show has ever had what Bones offers. Mystery, romance, friendships, genius, comaderie, police work, along with a prosecutor, state department, FBI, science, science experiments, death of coworkers and family, orphans and knowledge of foster care, serial killers, killers, accidental death, anthropology, teamwork, love and marriage, growing families, and lots of laughter and chemistry!! Bones is a gem. Perhaps it does start at 8pm, instead of 9, since Fox airs the nightly news at 10pm, (eastern & pacific). Perhaps the final episode is the first week in May? I’m going to miss Bones, like no other TV show so far. I love Star Trek, and hate when their various series end, but Bones stands alone in its greatness and its uniqueness.

  14. K says:

    Is there still no word on Midnight, Texas?

  15. J.Norman says:

    I don’t know if “We Will Rise” will be a ratings success or not, but I do think it is a little strange to put the finale on a Friday Night

  16. Jana says:

    I believe Blindspot returns March 22.

  17. Jared says:

    I honestly thought ABC Cancelled Designated Survivor. They single handily killed this show with such a long break. I used to watch it but I doubt I’ll pick it back up when it returns.

  18. Carla Krae says:

    Legends of Tomorrow is 3/28. Did they move that?

  19. Jape Man says:

    The 16th is also the premiere of “Snatch” on Crackle based on the Guy Ritchie film and “You are Wanted” premieres on Amazon on the 17th (though Amazon will probably put it up at 7:00 ET on the 16th)

  20. datdudemurphy says:

    Lethal Weapon is ending already? That sucks….

  21. Sue says:

    Hey Matt – any way you can make the calendar larger? When I print it out I can hardly read it – and making it larger just distorts in :( I’ve printed out your calendars in the past and never had this issue . . .

  22. yay says:

    I didn’t see Sleepy Hollow there. Is there a reason they aren’t on this calendar? Will they be off the schedule during March Madness?

  23. pocketgal says:

    When is Lucifer returning?

  24. Marie58 says:

    You’re missing Ripper Street. Final season premieres March 8 on BBC America, 8pm.

  25. Can’t wait for OUAT to return and half excited for halfway dreading VD serires finale and retrospective special.

  26. Haukmoor says:

    Thank you for the horizontal calendar!

  27. Last Man on Earth returns March 5 on Fox. Saw a commercial that Kristin Wiig will be a guest star.

  28. Jon says:

    Hi Matt, Have you thought about including sports? The AFL (Australian rules football) is set to start on FS1 + FS2 later this month. Can’t wait. Go Bulldogs!!

  29. isaaedi100 says:

    Who Do You Think You Are? season premiere on TLC is this Sunday, March 5, at 10! Love shows about tracing genealogy

  30. Rick M. says:

    Any word on when Broadchurch will be back on BBC America? It returned in the UK on February 27th, but I haven’t seen any dates for when it will back on in the US.

  31. jp says:

    amazing race moved up to mar 30th with training day moved out to saturdays.

  32. Linda says:

    Now I know why I didn’t realize that Fri March 31st was the season (series?) finale of Sleepy Hollow. It’s not on the calendar.
