With Netflix specifically mentioning The Sandman, The Umbrella Academy, and The Witcher as titles that will be included (they're the first three on the list) fans will no doubt be interested to see what's revealed for these popular properties.
Production on The Sandman and the third season of The Umbrella Academy has been ongoing for sometime with confirmation previously being announced about casting. Filming on the second season of The Witcher has already wrapped with Netflix Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos previously saying it would premiere later this year. That timing in mind, perhaps a brief teaser is on the horizon.
“What happened in the first part of this year was that a lot of the projects that we’d hoped to come out earlier did get pushed because of the post-production delays and Covid delays and we think we’ll get back to a much steadier state in the back half of the year," Sarandos said during their company's investor call earlier this year. "Certainly in Q4 where we have the returning seasons of some of our most popular shows like The Witcher and You and Cobra Kai as well as some big tentpole movies that came to market a little slower than we’d hoped like Red Notice and Escape From Spiderhead."
Netflix Geeked Week will kick off next week!
