Netflix’s Geeked Week virtual event is returning very soon, and the streaming company has released a new trailer giving a preview of the new content that will be teased and showcased. Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and The Sandman were among the announcements, news, and first looks at the platform’s biggest franchises.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners was first announced in 2020 by game developer CD Projekt Red. The anime is tied to the company’s Division game and is produced by Studio Trigger, the animation company known for hits like Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia, BNA: Brand New Animal, and others. Edgerunners is a 10-episode standalone story that features disconnected original characters from Cyberpunk 2077. Although an original story, Edgerunners takes place in the same universe, with Night City being a prominent location in the series. .
In the event trailer above, all that’s mentioned about The Sandman, Neil Gaiman’s long-awaited adaptation is literally “Sandman is coming, trust me.” Fingers crossed that means we’ll hear a release date. Last year during Geeked Week, viewers were treated to a brief behind-the-scenes look at the live-action series. In the months that followed, Netflix unveiled a few look at the characters first, an excerpt from the seriesand lots of new cast members.
In the meantime, find out what’s coming to Netflix the rest of this month here.
