James R | On 07, Jun 2021
Netflix is hosting its first online fan event this week, with a genre-themed celebration of its original programming.
Called Geeked Week, the virtual event runs from today until 11th June, featuring news, trailers, images, celebrity appearances and so much more. Streaming on YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, Facebook and TikTok, the event will showcase a different area each day – film, comic books, fantasy, anime/animation and gaming. More than 50 Netflix projects will feature in some form, including The Sandman, The Umbrella Academy, The Witcher, Gunpowder Milkshake, The Cuphead Show!, Arcane, Lucifer, Fear Street Trilogy, Kate, Castlevania, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, La Casa de Papel, Resident Evil, Cowboy Bebop, Cobra Kai, Godzilla: Singular Point, Sweet Tooth and Vikings: Valhalla.
Rahul Kohli and Mari Takahashi will emcee the week-long event, with guest hosts including Trisha Hershberger, Erika Ishii, Geoff Keighley, Yuri Lowenthal and Kiera Please. Each day begins streaming at 5pm UK time, with a repeat at 2am.
The event follows a similar initiative from DC last year, with its “Fandome” designed to both bring fan communities together and promote upcoming releases. Here are the video streams for each day this week:
