Netflix Geeked Week to feature upcoming sci-fi, fantasy movies and shows


Netflix will run its first-ever week-long virtual event made especially for geeks. Dubbed “Netflix Geeked Week,” it will showcase never-before-seen trailers, artworks, news, and more about the streaming app’s original sci-fi and fantasy films and shows.

“Over the years, Netflix has been lucky enough to inspire loyal followings for series and films like Stranger Things, Castlevania, The Old Guard, and many more,” the streaming giant wrote on its website. “But these fandoms aren’t just about making GIFs, buying merch, or theorizing about the next big twist(s). They’re about sharing excitement and connecting with people from all over the world who hold the same passion for those characters and stories.”

“Netflix Geeked, Netflix’s home for all things genre entertainment, wants to celebrate these communities and bring them together. That’s why we’re launching Geeked Week,” it added.

Headlining the event are Netflix’s upcoming titles The Witcher, The Sandman, and The Cuphead Show. It also mentions The Umbrella AcademyResident EvilSweet Tooth, Cowboy Bebop, Lucifer, and Master of the Universe: Revelation. It will also feature guest appearances of stars from some of the featured series.

Another good news is that it’s happening in a few weeks’ time—from June 7 to 11, 2021—and anyone can take part in it for free.

While Netflix said it will share more updates on “how to watch and when to tune it,” Collider reported that Geeked Week will be available on the @NetflixGeeked on TwitterInstagramTwitch and Facebook, and will also be uploaded to the official website.
