Netflix recently held their first ever Global Fan Event, TUDUM. This event was viewable on September 25th, 2021 on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and Facebook. Celebrities from hundreds of Netflix shows and movies spoke in interviews and participated in presentations and giving fans sneak peeks into their favorite shows and movies. The guest stars also competed in challenges, stories, and dances. 


One of the most anticipated sections of TUDUM was the Stranger Things portion. Fans were excited to see stars from the show including Gaten Matarazoo and Joe Keery, along with directors and writers, Matt and Ross Duffer. The team got Netflix watchers exhilarated for the new season, stating that it is going to be “very crazy, epic, long, and a lot goes down” (NETFLIX). After their introduction, fans finally got a sneak peek of Stranger Things season 4; this teaser was called “Creel House.” The teaser featured a spooky house set decades in the past and all the eerie events that are yet to happen in the future. It seems as if a family has had a horrible experience living in this house; their tragic events may even be connected to the “upside down”. One student, Alyssa Janney (11), says “I can’t wait for the new season of Stranger Things! I am so excited.” Although the trailer is vague and possibly misleading, it put shivers and goosebumps down many viewers’ backs and left them wanting more.


Another highly anticipated show that got a trailer during TUDUM is The Witcher. Henry Cavill proudly presented an exclusive clip from the soon to be released season and a full length trailer. It is safe to say that this trailer and clip got many fans eager to tune in and watch the season, which debuts on December 17th (PCGAMER)! 


Henry Cavill also told fans that he was excited to start filming the second Enola Holmes movie. The beloved film, Enola Holmes, came out on September 23rd last year and quickly became a favorite to many. Fans were elated to hear that the movie is getting a sequel! The original cast including Millie Bobby Brown, Louis Partaigde, Henry Cavill, and Sam Claflin will be returning to set to begin filming in just a few days. 


Bridgerton also had an amazing section of TUDUM. In this part of the event, Nicola Coughlan, Charithra Chandran, Simone Ashley, and Jonathan Bailey got to present fans with a trailer for the upcoming season! This trailer has since been viewed millions of times and has gained attention of new and old viewers. Bridgerton season 2 will be available to watch in the near future!


Cobra Kai also had a teaser trailer released during TUDUM. This teaser contained snippets of what is yet to come in season 4. Fans have been eagerly waiting for this new season for months and were pleased to find out that it will be available to stream on December 31st, 2021! Cobra Kai has also been renewed for a 5th season that is said to start filming sometime in the near future. 


Netflix also announced dozens of movies that are scheduled for release soon, such as Don’t Look Up, The Harder They Fall, Red Notice, Army Of Thieves, as well as sequels to Extraction and The Old Guard (BADGERHERALD). 


The Netflix TUDUM event served to excite and ignite anticipation in viewers worldwide. The event was a welcomed distraction from more serious worldwide news. Netflix’s lineup promises excitement and fun to come!
