From the 7th until 11th June Netflix held an online free event called Geeked Week. It was their first time hosting this event and we at least hope this will become a yearly tradition. The event is first and foremost targeted at the fans and wants to celebrate “geeky” entertainment. During the event Netflix also shared a ton of new trailers. You can find a full overview of the 5-day event here. In this article we’ll give you a nice summary of the news that stood out the most to us during Netflix Geeked Week 2021.
