All The Gaming-Themed Shows Announced During Netflix Geeked Week

Netflix is going all-in on video games!

Netflix’s “Geeked Week” celebrations have come and gone, and the five days of reveals and updates were tailed off with a hefty dose of gaming and gaming-themed content. We’ve picked out everything we saw over the course of the week to do with video games, whether it’s TV shows based on popular franchises or actual games included in the service, and put them all together for you below:

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners

Cyberpunk: Edgerunners is a new, 10-episode story created by Studio Trigger (of Kill la Kill and Promare fame) and based in the world of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077. It follows a street kid named David trying to survive in a tech and body modification-obsessed world by becoming an ‘Edgerunner.’ It’ll premier on Netflix in September this year.

Sonic Prime

Sonic Prime is a new, 24-episode animated series coming to Netflix this year, and though we still don’t have a release date we did get this new clip featuring Big the Cat and Froggy.

Resident Evil

A new, official trailer for Resident Evil gives us another look at the series starring Ella Balinska and Lance Reddick. The show will feature two different timelines across a decade and follow the lives of Jade and Billie Wesker both before and after the T-Virus takes hold of the world. It actually looks somewhat decent and it’s not far off, premiering on July 14th.

The Cuphead Show!

The Cuphead Show! was a hit with fans in its first season that debuted this year, so it’s great news that more episodes are coming. A new, 12-episode season releases on August 19th with more seasons still to come.
