Love comics, games, animation, sci-fi, monsters, tech and fantasy? You’ve come to the right place. From June 7, Netflix will host its first Geekend virtual event - a week-long virtual event which is an unapologetic celebration of geek/nerd culture and fandoms where the streaming giant will provide viewers with exclusive glimpses into their most anticipated upcoming series, new characters from their favourite franchises and more. Here’s everything you know about Netflix Geeked Week:
What is Netflix Geeked?
What began as a Twitter account has turned into a full-fledged event. Netflix’s official celebration of fandoms, Geeked used to only share trailers, updates and memes initially. However, as the streaming giant started showcasing more cult favourite shows and movies, the need to expand into a week-long event became apparent. Hosted virtually, Netflix Geeked Week will give fans insider information about more than 50 projects like The Witcher, Castlevania, Stranger Things, Army of The Dead, Lucifer and more. The event will include special games, cast interviews, behind-the-scenes videos and first looks into new seasons of shows to keep fans updated.
