Netflix Geeked Week Wednesday

Netflix Geeked Week – All The Biggest Announcements

Netflix has almost wrapped up its annual Geeked Week event where the streaming service played host to a number of cool announcements, panels and updates related to its geek-themed content. Each day at Netflix Geeked Week was themed around something new with TV shows on Monday, movies on Tuesday and Stranger Things and gaming taking their own slots.

If anything, the whole event takes way too long so I decided to compile all the announcements you might have missed into one post. Here’s everything you might have missed during Netflix Geeked Week. Keep in mind that Geeked Week has one more day so we will add to this post once Netflix wraps up its final reveals.
