What just happened? Netflix has wrapped up its first-ever virtual Geeked Week event, a five-day celebration that provided fans with plenty of new trailers for upcoming shows. There is a lot more to explore in the Netflix YouTube archive, but here we have highlighted a few highlights that are likely to appeal to our audience.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is based on the survival horror franchise that debuted 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 in the RE universe. Expect it to air on July 8, 2021.
We’ve also heard of a new RE Live series that’s in the works; more on that here courtesy of Polygon.
The Cuphead Show! is based on the retro cartoon platformer from 2017, and stars Wayne Brady as King Dice. Netflix describes the series as a character-driven comedy that follows the misadventures of Cuphead and his brother, Mugman.
No premiere date has been set, so for now all we have to do is this preview.
Netflix shared a handful of new footage for Masters of the Universe: Revelation last month, and now we’re seeing the animated series in action for the first time. If the voice acting and intrigue can live up to the artwork, we’re going to have a blast 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 teaser for season two of The Witcher. Although it only lasts a dozen seconds, there are apparently tons of stuffed Easter-eggs in this teaser. If you are a huge fan of the show, you will no doubt want to watch it more than once to see all you can get out of it.
There is also a virtual WitcherCon event scheduled for July 9 that promises many “surprises and exclusive first looks”.
