Netflix's Tudum Fan Event Is Coming Back — Here's What To Know
*Fingers crossed for more Stranger Things footage.*
In 2021 Netflix’s inaugural global fan event Tudum took fans behind the scenes of the streamer’s top shows through interviews and never-before-seen footage. This year will be more of the same, with promises of new footage, trailers for upcoming shows and movies, and interviews with fan-fave cast members at Netflix’s 2022 Tudum event on Sept. 24.
The 2021 online convention featured interactive panels with actors and directors, announcements of upcoming release dates, and premieres of new footage of Netflix’s most popular shows, like Stranger Things, Emily in Paris, and Bridgerton. The 100-plus shows selected for Tudum this year will include picks from all over the world. Throughout the day, events will cover the globe, starting with a new show announcement in Korea, then a preview of India’s upcoming content, followed by a celebration of entertainment in the U.S., Europe, and Latin America, finally ending at midnight ET with a spotlight on Japanese content.
With the announcement that Netflix lost more than 200,000 subscribers in the first three months of 2022, it seems the streaming giant is looking to engage their excited fandoms. The promise to release secrets from sets and new exciting trailers for original content is certainly a way to drum up interest in a market with so many streaming options.
