By Jessica Lerner 

Netflix’s Geeked Week started with a bang as the streamer promptly released official trailers and teasers for several upcoming seasons and new shows. And if this is what happens on the first day, who’s to say what news and sneak peeks we may get by Day 5.

Based on the beloved comic series written by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman follows the titular character who is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for over a century. During this time, he must journey across different worlds and timelines to fix the chaos his absence has caused. The series premieres Aug. 5.


Locke and Key returns on Aug. 10 with Season 3. The third and final season will find the Locke family uncovering “more magic within Keyhouse, while a new threat— the most dangerous one yet—looms in Matheson with plans of his own for the keys.”

Resident Evil is set in present-day and 2036 and follows Jade Wesker as she struggles to survive in a zombie-infested world. And zombies aren’t the only problem. Jade has to face her father’s connection to the Umbrella Corporation and deal with the fate of her sister, Billie. The show premieres July 14.

Wednesday, which will premiere this fall, follows the titular character (Jenna Ortega) as she attempts to perfect her natural psychic talents while still surviving school. Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed Addams Family film franchise in the 1990s, will star as a regular cast member in the series.

Warrior Nun follows a young woman who wakes up in a morgue with inexplicable powers and gets caught up in a battle between good and evil. Season 2 will premiere this winter.

From The Haunting of Hill House creator Mike Flanagan, The Midnight Club follows a group of terminally ill young adults in the Rotterdam Home hospice run by a mysterious doctor. They meet at midnight every night to tell each other scary stories. One night they make a pact that the first one to succumb to their disease is responsible for communicating with the others beyond the grave. After one of them dies, bizarre occurrences begin. The series is scheduled to premiere Oct. 7.
