Tudum’s three-hour fan celebration takes place on Saturday, September 25 at 9AM PST / 12PM EST / 5PM BST / 9:30PM IST / 1AM JST and KST.
US and UK viewers will have no issues with Tudum’s timing, but fans based in India, Japan and South Korea might have to stay up a little later than you usually do.

However, fans shouldn’t expect to get a new trailer or teaser for every property listed above. Netflix has stated that we’ll be the first to “hear breaking news and see first looks, new trailers and exclusive clips during interactive panels and conversations with the creators and stars from Netflix”.
If something like Stranger Things season 4 doesn’t get a first official trailer or confirmed release date, don’t stress. It’s best to manage your expectations now, rather than be left feeling disappointed this weekend. And who knows? Netflix might surprise you if you don’t work yourself up over what you hope to see.
