What just happened? Netflix has wrapped up its first virtual Geeked Week event, a five-day celebration that provided fans with many new trailers for upcoming shows. There’s a lot more to explore in Netflix’s YouTube archive, but here are some highlights that are likely to appeal to our audience.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is based on the historic survival horror franchise that began in 1996. Netflix’s new CGI series takes place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, and stars Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, familiar characters. within the RE universe. Look for it to premiere on July 8, 2021.
We also learned about a new live action RE series that is in the works; more about that here courtesy of Polygon.
The Cuphead Show! is based on the 2017 retro cartoon platformer and stars Wayne Brady as King Dice. Netflix describes the show as a character-based comedy that follows the misadventures of Cuphead and his brother, Mugman.
No release date has been set, so for now, all we have to do is this sneak peek.
Netflix shared a handful of new footage for Masters of the Universe: Revelation last month, and now we get to see the animated series in action for the first time. If the voice acting and plot can live up to the artwork, a real treat awaits us here.
The first five episodes of the 10-episode project are scheduled to arrive on July 23.

Netflix, on the fifth and final day of its streaming event, shared a brief preview of the second season of The Witcher. Although it only runs for a dozen seconds, there are apparently tons of Easter eggs in this trailer. If you are a big fan of the series, you will definitely want to watch it more than once to see all that you can capture.
There is also a Witchercon virtual event scheduled for July 9 that promises many “surprises and exclusive first looks”.
