Back once again this year, Netflix’s Geeked Week promises a brimming of announcements sure to excite any geek’s heart.
While some may say that having too much of a good thing is bad, that doesn’t apply when it comes to new movies, shows, and videos to enjoy. Geeks and geeks-at-heart have a lot to look forward to this year with all the fresh entertainment dropping. And Netflix is here to make sure that our inner geek is alive and well with their upcoming Geeked Week ’22.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Making its awaited return, Geeked Week 2022 promises to be bigger than ever with news and announcements across the worlds of sci-fi, fantasy, comic books, video games, horror, and more. The five-day virtual fan event celebrating Netflix’s genre series, films, and games will have all the announcements you need. From Monday, June 6 to Friday, June 10, expect tons of your favorites, both old and new from cast reveals, talent appearances, trailer premieres, sneak peeks, surprise announcements, and so much more. All in all, over 60 Netflix projects will be covered during Geeked Week.
To get you even more excited, the teaser trailer promoting the event promises a bevy of the hottest and most anticipated upcoming titles like The Sandman, The Umbrella Academy, Manifest, The Gray Man, Alice in Borderland, Day Shift, Resident Evil, and The Sea Beast. There’s even a whole day dedicated to Stranger Things. Narrated by the one and only David Harbour, the trailer guarantees Geeked Week to be one to watch out for. Already, we are given us our first look of Gwendoline Christie as the fallen angel Lucifer greeting Tom Sturridge’s Dream in The Sandman. We also saw a few clips of Arcane. Does that mean we’ll be getting our first look at season two? Fingers crossed. And if that isn’t enough, Netflix will also be sharing exclusive games. There really is so much to geek about.
