What is Netflix cooking up for us now? The American streaming giant has decided to spoil its millions of subscribers by organizing an online event in the same spirit as a mini virtual Comic-Con. Netflix revealed the dates of this upcoming event via social networks and on its website; the very first edition of Geeked Week will take place June 7- 11 online.
Over the course of five days, Netflix subscribers will be able to discover "a wide array of exclusive news, new trailers, live art, drop-ins from your favorite stars and much more about all your favorite Netflix series and films," Netflix detailed on its official blog . For now, it's just the accompanying poster that gives clues about the series and movies that will be discussed during the event, namely "Masters of the Universe: Revelation," "Lucifer," "The Umbrella Academy," "The Witcher," "The Sandman," "The Cuphead Show!," "Resident Evil," "Sweet Tooth" and "Cowboy Bebop."
While this event is set to be free and online, Netflix has not yet indicated how interested parties will be able to follow these five days of exchanges, but will reveal the procedure in the "weeks ahead."
For the American platform, this event is a way to "to celebrate these communities" of fans and "bring them together" before the fall season. This growing interest in interacting more with its community comes at a time when Netflix is said to be working on a new platform where fans could have access to unpublished information about projects in the works.
