Over the past few years, Netflix has held several online events to showcase its upcoming slate of new movies, series, and games. The two main events started in 2021, but will they return in 2023? This is what we know.
The two events below are Netflix marketing events that give you a preview of what’s to come with cast and crew interviews, trailer premieres, date reveals, and much more.
Before we dive in, there’s another event Netflix is hosting in mid-May 2023: your own initial event. For those of you who don’t know, TV upfronts are an opportunity for networks to talk about their upcoming listings and get advertisers interested. It’s currently unclear if the Netflix event, which will take place on May 17, will be broadcast to the public or even have title announcements.
Is Netflix Geeked Week coming in 2023?
As the weeks roll by, it’s unclear if Geeked Week, a week-long event that premieres news for Netflix’s slate of genre shows, which includes sci-fi, fantasy, and anime, will return to its regular June 2023 time slot. .
Geeked Week 2021 ran from June 7-11, while Geeked Week 2022 ran from June 6-10.
Last year we found out at the end of april that Geeked Week is on the way, and in 2021, it wasn’t announced until the end of May 2021.
So far this year, there’s no word on whether Geeked Week will return at press time.
We reached out to the two Netflix Geeked 2022 PR representatives, but received no response.
Netflix Tudum usually runs every September
Netflix Tudum, not to be confused with the Netflix fan blog, the sound effect that loads when you launch a Netflix title, or even its theater in los angelesis an annual world event that also started in September 2021. The second event took place in September 2022.
Unlike Geeked Week, Tudum typically covers the entire Netflix slate, including international region charts with separate streams covering upcoming Korean and Indian titles.
For the past two years, we’ve had Tudum date announcements every July, with lineups finalized in September.
Again, there’s no word on whether Tudum will return in 2023, but we’ll update once we hear more, which should be late summer.
Netflix Tudum Brazil will take place in June 2023
Netflix is organizing a separate Tudum event for Brazil, which will take place at the São Paulo Art Biennial between June 16 and 18 and is dubbed as an «in-person event.”
The event was first announced in mid-April 2023:
🚨🗣️O TUDUM VOLTOU PRA CASA🗣️🚨
The face-to-face event come here with immersive experiences, exclusive news from your favorite series and films and many, many more.
O TUDUM agreed to the days June 16, 17 and 18 in São Paulo, in the Ibirapuera Park. One entry is FREE and you… pic.twitter.com/2eBER96YIB

Judging by the promo banner (seen embedded below), we expect the following shows/movies to be featured or at least get a mention:
- Strange things
- Love is blind Brazil
- Sex education
- Emily in Paris
- squid game
- One piece
- money robbery
- The Wizard
- The Sandman
- cobra kai
- The crown
Notably, the event hasn’t been mailed to most UK or US outlets, meaning it won’t be quite the same as Tudum Global if it returns later this year. As a result, we do not expect major announcements for the programs described above. The press release adds that there will be «two floors filled with immersive experiences, games and attractions.»
