Saturday – Day 6 – Third Live Stream

  • Damsel kicked off the show with a pretty decent teaser trailer with Millie Bobby Brown front and center. No exact release date other than a broad 2024 window.

  • The Archies, due out on Netflix on December 7th, got a featurette with the cast of the movie sitting down to do a trivia test. Moving on…

  • Dead Boy Detectives was the next big reveal. We’ve known that Netflix will be the recipient of the new series that is set in the same world as The Sandman, but today we got a first look teaser and some new photos.
  • Sonic Prime season 3 was recently showcased at DROP 01, but today, we got confirmation the new season will drop on January 11th, 2024.
  • Exploding Kittens was the next major reveal, but sadly, we didn’t get any release date suggesting it may not be out until next year at this point. The upcoming adult animated series is based on the card game (and the Netflix mobile game) of the same name.

  • Devil May Cry also recently featured at the DROP01 event and today, we got a message from show creator Adi Shankar himself about the upcoming series.
  • Terminator: The Anime Series was the big new debut. Having been reported to be in development at Netflix for quite some time, this is the confirmation we were looking for. However, beyond a brief synopsis and a title card, we’ve still got a lot to learn.
  • Two game reveals next. Hades, the multi-award-winning roguelike dungeon crawler, will be making its mobile debut via Netflix, and so will Braid: Anniversary Edition, scheduled for April 2024.
  • There is no new One Piece news, but we got a new blooper reel.
  • Gyeongseong Creature got a date debut, and it’s been split into two parts. Part 1 drops on December 22nd, while the second part arrives a few weeks later on January 5th.

  • Rounding out Saturday’s showcase was a tease for Rebel Moon day, happening all day Sunday.


Friday – Day 5 – Second Live Stream

  • Kicking off, Friday began the stream with the big new tease for 3 Body Problem, which has been delayed from its original January 2024 release window to March 21st, 2024.
