Netflix has revealed the first clip from Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – and it looks like Benoit Blanc has a particularly intriguing puzzle to solve.
Premiering during Tudum 2022, the first look at Knives Out 2 – outside of its first official teaser, which arrived on September 12 – offers us our best look yet at the murder mystery movie’s lineup of possible suspects.
Watch the extended clip for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery below:
The Netflix movie sees Daniel Craig returning as master detective Benoit Blanc, who accepts an invitation from tech billionaire Miles Bron to join him (and a few others) for a much-needed getaway on his private Greek island. However, when one of the guests turns up dead, Blanc’s vacation is put on hold as he is forced to find out which of Bron’s guests committed the crime.
Like its predecessor, Knives Out 2 contains an A-list cast, all of whom could be the alleged killer. Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Jessica Henwick, Leslie Odom Jr, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Ethan Hawke are all involved.
Based on the clip above, it looks like Rian Johnson’s latest whodunnit will rival Knives Out as a riveting, unbridled murder mystery movie. Will it contain a surprise twist early on? Or will you delay revealing a key witness (or the killer himself) until the film’s final minutes? We’ll have to wait and see.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is scheduled for a limited theatrical release in the US over Thanksgiving weekend (November 24). The film will be released worldwide on Netflix on December 23.

Officially, we still haven’t received many details about the Google Pixel Tablet, other than the fact that it exists and is coming in 2023. Unofficially, the leaks are filling in some of the blanks when it comes to what we can expect on this slate.
As reported by 91 furniture (opens in new tab) and Kuba Wojciechowski (opens in new tab)the Pixel Tablet has apparently entered the engineering validation test (EVT) phase, meaning it has moved beyond the prototype stage and is now being tested in-house.
When it comes to specs, 128GB and 256GB storage options are apparently on the way. The tablet is also said to support Wi-Fi 6 and will come with a 10.95-inch screen – which is definitely the big size for what we think will be a budget tablet.
putting the pieces together
Some of the features reported in the latest leak have come before: a Google-made stylus is said to be being made for the Pixel Tablet, for example, and we previously heard that the slate would come with stylus support.
Previous rumors pointed to the tablet appearing with 4GB of RAM. Add in the first-gen Tensor chipset, which Google has confirmed will power the device, and that looks a lot like something on the more affordable end of the scale.
Consumers who want a premium option may also have something to look forward to, as hints about a Pixel Tablet Pro have been spotted in Android code. It is possible that more than one model will be on the market before the end of 2023.
Analysis: Budget tablet wars
Ignoring the Pixel Tablet Pro rumor for a moment, from what we’ve heard so far, this sounds a lot like a budget Android tablet – something cheap and cheerful for consuming media, checking email, and browsing social media.
You may have noticed that Amazon just updated its 8-inch Amazon Fire HD tablet series, which offers good enough tablet specs for little money. The standard edition of the tablet with 32GB of storage will cost $99 / £99.
There are many other candidates in the field as well. The 8-inch Nokia T10 was announced earlier this year and offers 32GB of storage for £129 in the UK (approximately $140/AU$215 with a direct conversion).
That’s the market Google is entering with its Pixel Tablet, and it hopes its combination of sleek hardware, clean software, and an attractive price tag will be enough to change a serious number of these devices.
Good morning/afternoon/evening, Netflix fans! And welcome to ‘s live blog for Tudum 2022, the latest installment in Netflix’s global fan event.
For next three hours, I’ll be bringing you every major announcement, trailer reveal, exclusive news drop, and more about your favorite Netflix movies and TV shows.
I’m expecting plenty to be revealed during the US, UK, and European portion of the event, which kicks off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. How about some news about The Witcher season 3? Or You season 4? Or how about some information on Netflix’s forthcoming slate of movies, including Knives Out 2? There’s a lot we can see and hear about in the next few hours.
So, grab yourself a drink and some snacks, and join me as we find out what Netflix has up its sleeve.
While we wait for the US, UK, and European part of Tudum 2022 to start, Netflix has already made a couple of big announcements concerning some of its most beloved shows.
Earlier today, the Korean and Indian portions of Tudum 2022 were held, and there were a few notable reveals during the Korean section in particular.
From Heartstopper’s Tobie Donovan to Heart of Stone’s Alia Bhatt, here’s WHO you can expect to see at #TUDUM on September 24 — so now the only question is, WHAT will they be showing you?? There’s only one way to know for sure! Set Your Reminder Now: pic.twitter.com/DEmSCCUgA7September 22, 2022
Of course, we have an idea of which Netflix films and TV series will be part of proceedings. Netflix revealed the entire schedule for Tudum 2022’s US, UK, and European presentation on Twitter – see above – so you and I already know what to expect.
What you don’t know, however, is what will be shown. I’ve been given a sneek peak at some of the announcements that’ll be made at this year’s Tudum event and, without spoiling anything, I think a lot of Netflix fans will be happy with what’ll be revealed. But hey, you’ll ultimately be the judge of that.
Alright, it’s time! Netflix’s main presentation at Tudum 2022 starts…now!
And we open with a montage of the 200-plus directors, actors, and other talent getting ready to deliver their specific movie and TV show presentations.
First up, it’s Millie Bobby Brown. That’s right – she of Stranger Things and Enola Holmes fame. And she brought the first trailer for Enola Holmes 2 with her, which you can watch above.
If nothing else, it looks pretty fun! Enola Holmes 2 is coming to Netflix on November 4 so, there’s time to check out the first film before it arrives. Read more about Enola Holmes 2’s official teaser in our extended news story.
Next up, Gal Gadot’s new Netflix movie. It’s called Heart of Stone and it’s coming sometime in 2023.
The action thriller, which also stars 50 Shades of Grey’s Jamie Dornan, looks like a cross between James Bond and The Gray Man, the latter of which Netflix released earlier this year and became one of its biggest hit movies.
You can watch a behind-the-scenes featurette for Heart of Stone above, which seems like it’ll make for an enjoyable watch next year. Let’s just hope it doesn’t become another one of Netflix’s average, forgettable original flicks.
Now we’re watching Bridgerton pair Luke Newton and Claudia Jessie paint portraits of each other. Aren’t we lucky…
But wait, there’s more! Nichola Cloughlan has just revealed the plot synopsis and first title for Bridgerton season 3. The next entry’s first episode is called ‘Out of the Shadows’. Unfortunately, there’s no word on when season 3 will be with us. Filming only began recently, to be fair, so I wouldn’t expect to see it until late 2023.
That’s not the only news concerning Bridgerton, though. We’ve learned more about Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, which acts as an origin story for, well, Queen Charlotte, who appeared in seasons 1 and 2. Executive producer Shonda Rhimes showed up to debut the first clip from Queen Charlotte’s prequel series, too, which you can watch above.
Now this is one I’m really looking to. The new cast members for Shadow and Bone season 2 just debuted the first looks at their characters, before Jessie Mei Li and Ben Barnes crashed the party to give us our first-ever look at the fantasy series’ next season. And it. Looks. Awesome.
Check it out above! And then read our Shadow and Bone season 2 teaser news story to learn more about what you’ve just watched.
The Crown season 5 is another highly anticipated show that many of us have been waiting for, and Netflix just dropped a first teaser and an official release date for the drama centered around Britain’s royal family.
The Crown’s next season will be with us on November 9. Mark your calendars now and then read our article on more concerning The Crown season 5.
Emily in Paris season 3 is expected to be another big hitter, and we’ve just seen our first teaser for the show’s next installment. It’s also coming on December 21, so who’s ready for a wintry trip to Paris?
A brief update from The Old Guard 2 cast, who are still filming the sequel, and then onto more about Netflix’s Wednesday Addams TV show.
Yesterday, we learned that it’s coming on November 23, but Netflix dropped an exclusive clip to whet our appetite before it debuts later this year. Watch the clip above and then read our Wednesday Addams teaser story for more details.
I was Manifest-ing a first trailer for the show’s fourth season before Tudum 2022, and my prayers have been answered!
Not only that, but we’ve been given a launch date for Manifest season 4, too. Well, season 4 part 1 anyway. The first batch of episodes will drop on November 4. Get your boarding passes ready, gang.
Game of Thrones’ showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have just revealed the first information about 3 Body Problem, a keenly anticipated and ambitious sci-fi series (based on Liu Cixin’s novels) coming exclusively to Netflix soon.
Production has just wrapped on 3 Body Problem’s first season and the cast and crew have certainly piqued my interest with what they told us at Tudum 2022. Let’s hope it doesn’t disappoint.
It’s Jason Momoa! The Aquaman star has just given us a sneek peak at Slumberland, the fantasy-adventure Netflix film that arrives in time for Thanksgiving.
It certainly looks beautiful and it looks like Momoa and co-star Marlow Barkley have solid chemsitry. You can watch the exclusive clip above, before reading our Slumberland clip article for more information on what to expect from the family friendly flick.
Never Have I Ever… seen this show. Yes, I hold my hands up and say I’ve never seen the coming-of-age comedy-drama series. But hey, it sounds like I should.
Anyway, the cast of Never Have I Ever are coming back back for a fourth and final season sometime in 2023. I guess we’ll hear more about when that’ll be, erm, next year.
When it rains, it pours – and, in true stormy fashion, Aidan Gallagher and Emmy Raver-Lampman from The Umbrella Academy are here to present a blooper reel of the show’s third season.
The superhero series is also returning for a fourth and final season. Filming hasn’t started yet, but hopefully production will begin sometime next year. I wasn’t a big fan of The Umbrella Academy season 3 – the first and second seasons were better, in my view – but I’ll still be sad when this show ends. I want my annual fix of comedy-style dance numbers, darn it.
An amusing back and forth between Reece Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher now, with the duo confirming that their rom-com film Your Place or Mine will drop on February 10, 2023.
We’ve already seen one Pinocchio film this year with Disney’s live-action remake landing on Disney Plus earlier in September. Now, Netflix is bringing out its own version of the classic fairytale.
Guillermo del Toro will deliver a stop-motion Pinocchio movie later this year, and we’ve been given a behind-the-scenes look at how much work has gone into this fascinating project. It looks absolutely brilliant, so I’ll certainly be checking it out this December.
Next, we’re getting another look at Entergalactic, Kid Cudi and Kenya Barris’ animated series, which lands on Netflix on September 30.
It’s a show that I’ve previously compared to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s animation style. Based on this new featurette, it seems like Entergalactic has takena fair amount of inspiration from that superhero film, even if it has its own distinct aesthetic.
If you want to find out more about Entergalactic, Netflix released a ‘making of’ featurette earlier this week, which you can view above.
A quick round-up of some other announcements now.
Noah Centineo revealed the title of his upcoming Netflix show. It’s called The Recruit and it’s dropping on December 16.
Meanwhile, Pedro Alonso (Berlin in Money Heist) chatted to Álex Pina about La Casa De Papel: Berlin, which sounds like it’ll be similar in tone and style to other Money Heist entries.
Following the Entergalactic portion of the presentation, we also got a sneek peak at The Redeem Team, the incredible, real-life story of the 2008 US men’s Olympic basketball team that had everything to lose.
Jennifer Lopez’s latest movie, titled The Mother, just got a first-look teaser at Tudum 2022, too. It’s coming to Netflix in May 2023. And she looks riiiiiipped. I won’t be messing with Lopez while she’s in this kind of shape. No sir.
Here’s one that I think a lot of you have been waiting for: news on You season 4. At. Long. Last.
The hit show’s next entry finally has a release date – or, rather, two release dates. You season 4 drops in two parts early next year, with part coming on February 10, 2023. Season 4 part 2 lands exactly one month later on March 10. Check out the teaser above and then read our You season 4 launch date announcement story for more.
This looks like a typically creepy Ryan Murphy project. The Watcher, a brand-new thriller from the mind behind American Horror Story, is coming to Netflix on October 13. Naomi Watts, Bobby Cannavale, and Jennifer Coolidge are among the series’ all-star cast. Don’t watch this one with the lights off.
Fiiiiiinally! Some official news on The Witcher: Blood Origin, the first spin-off show in Netflix’s Witcher-Verse.
Sophia Brown, Michelle Yeoh, and Laurence O’Fuarain are here to talk about some interesting facts about Blood Origin – and a new cast member! Minnie Drive has just been announced as part of the cast. Driver didn’t disclose who she’s playing, but it sounds like someone really important.
The show has also received a long overdue update on its release date. Blood Origin is coming December 25. Read our Blood Origin release date story for more details.
Extraction 2 news now. Chris Hemsworth has just introduced a behind-the-scenes peek at the forthcoming action film, which you can see above. Read our Extraction 2 story for more on what to expect from the flick, too.
Valhalla awaits. Vikings: Valhalla season 2 just got a first look at Tudum 2022, with Leif, Freydis, and Harald retreating to a beach to protect some people from Olaf and his army. Before Olaf’s forces can kill everyone, though, someone comes to the trio’s aid… interesting.
Unfortunately, no release date was revealed alongside the clip. Here’s hoping it won’t be long before we find out for sure.
The creators of Dark, one of the most underrated Netflix shows ever, are bringing a new show out soon, too. The mind-bending 1899 is coming on November 17.
Oh ho ho, this one looks like an absolute riot. They Cloned Tryone, a pulpy mystery caper movie starring Jamie Foxx, John Boyega, and Teyonah Parris, just got its first trailer. And it looks hilariously brilliant.
Check out the trailer above and then read our They Cloned Tryone story for more details on what it’s about.
Our family returns! The Witcher is back for Season 3 in Summer 2023 #TUDUM pic.twitter.com/pV414YvRPISeptember 24, 2022
BIG WITCHER NEWS, PEOPLE! Henry Cavill has just announced that The Witcher season 3 is coming in summer 2023. That’s right, we don’t have to wait until late 2023 for the hit fantasy show’s next season to arrive. Check out more about season 3 in our release date article.
Meanwhile, co-stars Anya Chalotra and Freya Allen have given us a behind-the-scenes look at season 3’s production.
Lupin Part 3 just got its first teaser as well. No release date was given for the show’s return, but we’re sure Assane will be creeping up on us with an announcement on that front soon.
The Squid Game gang just turned up to give us the briefest of updates on Squid Game season 2. In short: it’s in production. I already knew about that – as did you, most likely – but it’s still good to hear it from the cast and crew themselves.
The group also showed the unreleased Squid Game season 1 clip that debuted during Tudum 2022’s Korean presentation, plus a quick glimpse at Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area. You can see those trailers in the intro to this live blog.
After a short look at Netflix’s videogame collection – smart move to put it in the middle of their movies and TV shows announcements, eh? – we’re back to Netflix’s bread and butter.
Picking things back up, we’ve just got a first teaser for Dead to Me’s final season. The show’s last installment premieres on Netflix on November 17.
Who wants some Heartstopper news!? Well, it’s not as great or exciting as you think. Netflix just announced that its subscriber base – that’s you and I – will soon be able to use Heartstopper profile icons on their Netflix accounts.
If that’s a bit disappointing news-wise, don’t fret. Production on Heartstopper season 2 has begun, so maybe we’ll see this huge show return sometime in 2023? Fingers crossed.
We’re nearing the end of Tudum 2022’s main presentation now, but there are a few more surprises to come.
The first is for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Director Rian Johnson just unveiled the first clip from the sequel to his hit whodunnit film, which sees Daniel Craig reprise his role as the eccentric but masterful detective Benoit Blanc.
The exclusive clip shows the movie’s new colorful and eclectic cast of characters, so check it out above. Once you’re done, read our Knives Out 2 clip story for more details on what to expect from its plot and characters.
Outer Banks season 3 news now. The Pogues are coming back sometime in 2023, and the cast were on hand to introduce a sneek peak at the fan favorite series’ next season at Tudum 2022. If you enjoyed the first two seasons, you’ll love what’s coming next time out.
We’re nearly there, gang. Thanks for riding out Tudum 2022 with me.
Before we wrap things up, Kerry Washington showed up to give us an exclusive look at The School for Good and Evil. The movie, which arrives on October 19 – just in time for Halloween – looks like it’ll be a big hit. Well, for a few weeks, at least.
But hey, maybe I’ll be wrong and it’ll absolutely storm up the Netflix charts and stick around for a while.
It’s Stranger Things time! Just like The Umbrella Academy earlier, though, some of the series’ main cast are only here to show us a blooper reel.
Oh, okay, there’s a bit more than that. The cast are also on hand to answer some fan trivia questions. It’s a fun bit, if nothing else, and I’m always happy to see Joseph Quinn. I’m still not over what happened to him in Stranger Things season 4. Bring him back, please, Matt and Ross Duffer.
And that’s a wrap on the US, UK, and European part of Netflix Tudum 2022.
If you’re looking for more Tudum content, though, the Latin American and Japanese parts of the 24-hour global fan event are still to come. In fact, at the time of writing, the Latin America portion has already started.

Thank you to hanging out with me over the past three hours! I’ll catch you soon in another news story, review, feature article, or live blog.
No matter where you are in the world, then: good afternoon, good evening, and good night, and enjoy the rest of your weekend! I know I will. Aaaaand sleep.
I made sure to defend second-hand products in my time at ; Buying pre-loved gadgets is a great way to save money and the environment in one go. But since all the gadgets I use are review loans, I haven’t actually had to buy any technology for four years.
However, as I will soon be leaving , the situation is different. Now I’m at a point where I have to start buying my own technology again. I have to spend my own money on devices I own – and not being in that position for awhile makes this change very scary.
A recent purchase I had to make is an iPad. While I’m not a huge fan of Apple products, some of the apps I use in my professional life are only available on iOS, ruling out Android tablets for work.
I’ve been offering tech buying advice for years as part of the team, but having to put my money where my mouth is felt like a big test of what I wrote. However, having finally chosen a refurbished iPad Pro 12.9 (the 2021 model) with 256GB storage and Wi-Fi connectivity and received it last night, I feel justified in recommending refurbished gadgets.
finding a tablet
Buying a new iPad was a pretty daunting proposition because Apple gadgets are insanely expensive – but I kept an open mind as to which device I would buy.
That attitude lasted exactly a second, at which point I ruled out buying an iPad Mini – because who the heck would consider buying a tablet similar in size to some Android phones? Certainly not me.
For a moment, I thought about buying a new iPad (2022), hearing rumors of a redesign, and possibly would have gone ahead with the purchase if the new generation was released alongside the iPhone 14. That didn’t happen, of course, and I don’t. I can’t wait for the October launch event. Also, I’m not a fan of the old-fashioned design of current-gen models, so the entry-level iPad lineup was also ticked off the list.
The iPad Air became my first choice; not the iPad Air (2022) because it’s quite a duff upgrade over its predecessor, but the iPad Air (2020). This tablet offers a premium design that I like, more than enough processing power and a compact body. However, as you already know from the title of this article, it wasn’t the device I chose in the end, for one simple reason: storage. While the iPad Air is priced mid-range, it’s for an impressive 64GB of storage. Opting for the next size, 256GB, raises the price quite significantly.
So where next? The iPad Pro lineup, of course – is the line I’m most familiar with, after all, having used every model since 2018. While the iPad Pro lineup is also incredibly expensive, I like the more generous size of the 12.9-inch model. , plus many other storage options as well.
And while shopping, I discovered that there are many options in the form of refurbished models as well. You see, when checking the prices of the new iPad Pro tablets, I also kept an eye on the cost of refurbished models such as BackMarket, Amazon and Apple’s own stores, noting the cost differences between the two.
My research found that iPad Pro models were available at the best prices comparing new and used. In addition, there was also a greater selection of quality grills on offer; some refurbished websites let you choose device quality, with flawless-looking models costing more than slightly scratched ones.
This is the reason I ended up with an iPad Pro instead of an iPad Air and a 12.9-inch model instead of a cheaper 11-inch device, one with 256GB of storage instead of 128GB. The generous number of refurbished iPad Pro models on the market meant I could effectively buy more tablets for the same amount of money, which actually saved me quite a bit of money.
In the end, I saved around £250 on the iPad I bought, compared to buying it new at launch a year ago. Given that even Black Friday often sees a price reduction of only around £100, this seemed like a significant savings, which I was very pleased with.
Getting more than iPaid to
After clicking “Buy” on Apple’s website (which, surprisingly, offered the model at a better price than Amazon or BackMarket), I immediately had second thoughts – I agreed to spend a large amount of money on a used tablet that I had never seen before. before. Had I made a big mistake?
Full of apprehension when arriving at the Apple Store, something that worsened when entering; I felt like I was in a street bazaar. Why were there so many people just hanging out, not really wanting to buy anything? Why were all the employees yelling at each other on the floor? Why did all the show’s products appear to have served time in a war? By trying to make its Apple Stores more like hubs where you hang out and less like stores, Apple has created a pretty confusing experience for visitors.
What caused even more confusion was that when I received the iPad I ordered, it was in a box covered with plastic wrap. Did the team member give me a new tablet by accident?
But when I got home, I saw that the box said it was a refurbished product; Apple has simply gone to amazing lengths to make this refurbished tablet look like new. This was evident when I opened the box as well, finding the wall plug and cord inside neatly wrapped.
In fact, if it weren’t for the word “refurbished” on the box, no one would ever know that this is a second-hand device – and the actual tablet is as much an indicator of that as the packaging. It was immaculate, with no scratches or marks. Even the charging port, which can be scratched quickly, looked like it had never seen a USB-C cable in its life.
Annoyingly, iPads don’t come with the Battery Health feature seen on iPhones, so I can’t say for sure how well the battery will hold up. However, after my day of using this tablet, it looks identical to the brand-new test unit I’ve been using for months.
I’m pleasantly surprised at how new this “refurbished” device looks, and it’s made me rethink all my future purchase plans. Sure, Apple is a big company and can be trusted to have a top-notch process for refurbishing its products, but that also means its close competitors (including the revamped Amazon service and popular BackMarket website) likely need to keep up with speed to stay competitive.
My iPad Pro basically looks like new, with the only difference being that I paid a lot less than I would for a new model. So if I can save a similar amount of money by buying other products, of equal quality (something that seems obvious considering the cost-of-living crisis), then I really don’t see the need to buy new ones ever again.
Full spoilers for Netflix’s Enola Holmes movie follow.
Netflix has released the fun-filled official trailer for Enola Holmes 2.
Released during Netflix’s Tudum 2022 global fan event, the two-minute teaser is full of rowdy moments, fourth-wall-breaking antics, and more than a few doses of heartwarming drama. If you enjoyed Enola Holmes’ first Netflix movie, this will be your Baker Street-style alley.
Watch the official trailer for Enola Holmes 2 below:
Enola Holmes’ next adventure picks up sometime after the events of the first film, with the title character setting up her own detective agency.
It certainly looks more professional than that of his brother, aka the great Sherlock Holmes, but things are not rosy for Enola. Based on the images above, she is looked down upon by society for being a detective, while Sherlock remains the apple of everyone’s eye. That is, until Sherlock comes to a halt as he tries to solve his latest case.
Coincidentally, it appears that Enola’s first real case – one centered on lost children – is linked to Sherlock’s current investigation. Get ready for a fun adventure filled with dramatic and humorous moments that are sure to test Enola as she embarks on her first detective-style journey. It’s an investigation that also looks like it will put the great chemistry between Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola and Henry Cavill’s Sherlock to good use, which will make for a refreshing change of pace from the titular character’s first young adult mystery film.
Brown and Cavill reprise their respective roles from Netflix’s first Enola Holmes film. Louis Partridge, Susie Wokoma, Helena Bonham Carter and Adeel Akhtar are also back as Tewkesbury, Edith, Eudoria Holmes and Lestrade. In addition, Harry Bradbeer is directing once again, while Jack Thorne returned to write the script.
Enola Holmes 2 will be released exclusively on Netflix on November 4th. Better get ready for another game then.
‘s Tudum 2022 live blog is still available to read if you missed any reveals, so read on for the biggest and best announcements about your favorite Netflix TV shows and movies.
Netflix has released the first teaser for the second season of Shadow and Bone.
The first trailer, which was revealed at Tudum 2022, only offers a brief tease at the show’s upcoming season. Despite being only 40 seconds long, it packs a lot of footage in a short amount of time, with several quick cuts, providing a tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come in the second installment in the series.
Take a look at the first teaser for Shadow and Bone season 2 below:
There’s not much we can really learn from the fast-paced nature of this trailer. But, there are a few things that are sure to pique the interest of fans of the hit Netflix show.
We get our first looks at all the main characters joining the second season of Shadow and Bone, including Patrick Gibson’s Nikolai Lantsov, Lewis Tan’s Tolya Yul-Battar, Anna Leong Brophy’s Tamar Kir-Battar, and Jack Wolfe’s Wylan Hendriks.
The footage also reveals that the show’s upcoming release will offer a lot in the way of fantasy-based action and drama. We see Archie Renaux’s Mal on the run from the law, Calahan Skogman’s Matthias being handcuffed and taken away, and Wylan joining forces with the Dregs. We also witness Nikolai telling Jessie Mei Li’s Alina Starkov that she’s a symbol, and Ben Barnes’ Darkling asking someone what they’re willing to sacrifice to achieve their goals, among various emotional moments.
No release date has been revealed alongside the sneek peak, but Netflix has confirmed that Shadow and Bone season 2 will be with us sometime in 2023. Filming on season 2 wrapped in early June, so post-production work production is well underway. The first trailer doesn’t contain any VFX or CGI elements, but they’re sure to be worked on as we speak (or rather, type).
We previously speculated that the next issue of Shadow and Bone will arrive in Spring 2023 (which is Fall 2023 for those in the Southern Hemisphere). Fingers crossed, we’re right, but we’re happy to wait longer if it means Shadow and Bone season 2 is as good as this teaser makes it out to be.
The Tudum 2022 live blog is over, but you can still go to learn more about all the ads about the best Netflix movies and shows that dropped during the presentation.
The first season of Shadow and Bone is available to stream in full on Netflix now.
Finally, Netflix has revealed the release date for the fifth season of the royal drama series The Crown.
The streamer shared the news during his annual Tudum fan event, confirming that The crown season 5 will debut in Wednesday, November 9.
We’ve known for a while that The Crown season 5 would hit screens in November (Netflix revealed so much during last year’s Tudum event), but the streamer has so far been tight-lipped about the show’s exact return date.
Imelda Staunton will inherit the role of the late Queen Elizabeth II from Olivia Colman in new episodes of The Crown, which are set to explore the end of Charles and Diana’s marriage, John Major’s time as prime minister and the Queen’s annus horribilis in 1992.
Jonathan Pryce is playing Prince Philip, with Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki playing Charles and Diana, respectively. Lesley Manville is taking on the role of Princess Margaret, while Jonny Lee Miller has been cast as John Major. Head over to our dedicated The Crown Season 5 hub for an in-depth rundown of the rest of the cast for the upcoming season.

Fans’ wait for The Crown to return has been longer than usual – but not surprisingly, given the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, the show was planning to take a gap year long before the virus began to present the entertainment world with various production challenges.
As for the show’s future beyond season 5, we know that season 6 of The Crown – which will be the show’s last installment – has already begun filming, although filming was temporarily put on hold following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September.
Addressing the news of his death, The Crown showrunner Peter Morgan said: “The Crown is a love letter to [the Queen] and I have nothing to add for now, just silence and respect.”
The Crown season 5 is not the only news Netflix series going to the streamer in November. Wednesday, a revival of the beloved horror comedy franchise The Addams Family, too was given a November release dateand a sequence of new movies from netflix are scheduled to join both shows in the same month.
Netflix has revealed the first extended clip from its upcoming Wednesday TV series Addams.
The 90-second clip, released as part of Netflix’s Tudum 2022 global fan event, gives us an insight into the aesthetic and moody yet humorous tone that the Netflix show is aiming for. Oh, and it also contains an unexpected Marvel reference that Captain America would be proud of.
Check out the first clip from Netflix’s Wednesday Addams series below:
Did you catch Cap’s iconic quote “I could do this all day”? We would be surprised if you didn’t.
Anyway, as you may have seen in the clip, Wednesday Addams isn’t in love with her parents wherever she is these days. And things don’t get much better for the teenage daughter of the Addams Family either, with Morticia and Gomez Addams sending The Thing – an anthropomorphic human hand that can’t speak – to spy on her.
Unsurprisingly, the macabre Wednesday has plans to lock the Thing so she can’t go back to her parents and tell them what she’s been up to – namely, that she plans to escape wherever she is. However, Wednesday decides to give Thing a choice – pledge your allegiance to her, and she can remain free. Understandably, given the alternative, it doesn’t take long for Thing to agree to those terms.
Tudum’s exclusive clip comes a month (and a day!) after the first official trailer for Wednesday Addams dropped online. That teaser gave us a much better idea of the comedy-horror vibe the Netflix live-action series is aiming for, but this new clip offers a bigger look at how Jenna Ortega will embody the role of Wednesday in the character’s first standalone tale.
The new footage also comes 24 hours after Wednesday’s TV show was given an official release date: November 23, which is, unsurprisingly, a Wednesday. The spooky season will be pretty much over by then, but it will still be an exciting post-Halloween clock.
Netflix’s Wednesday stars Ortega in the lead role, with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Luis Guzmán, and Isaac Ordonez playing Morticia, Gomez, and Pugsley Addams, respectively.
Gwendoline Christie, Jamie McShane, Riki Lindhorne and Christina Ricci — who starred Wednesday in the beloved Addams Family films of the early 1990s — are also among the show’s substantial supporting cast.

Netflix has debuted the first clip from its upcoming fantasy adventure movie Slumberland – and it looks fantastically gorgeous.
Released during its Tudum 2022 global fan event, Netflix gave us our first proper look at the family movie starring Jason Momoa. And by all accounts, it looks like it’s going to be an entertaining and potentially heartbreaking Netflix movie.
Check out the extended clip below:
The 80-second clip doesn’t reveal much about the film’s plot, but it does show the solid chemistry that exists between Momoa’s Flip and Marlow Barkley’s Nema. The former revels in laying down Slumberland’s rules for his partner in crime, but, unbeknownst to Flip, there’s more to Nema than meets the eye. Looks like Flip has had his work cut out in the prank department.
Away from the pair’s natural relationship, Slumberland looks like it could be a beautiful movie to watch. Those chairs that unfold, the butterflies building a new dream world, and that cute pig toy look like they’ll leave viewers in awe and wonder in equal measure.
Based on Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo in Slumberland comic strip, Slumberland will see Nema team up with Flip to try and see her late father Nemo (Kyle Chandler) one last time. Weruche Opia, India de Beaufort and Chris O’Dowd are among the film’s supporting cast. Meanwhile, Francis Lawrence – who directed the Hunger Games films – is directing, with the film’s screenplay written by David Guion and Michael Handelman (both Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb).
Netflix is set to release Slumberland in time for Thanksgiving (November 24), with the film coming to the streaming service on November 18.

Netflix has released an impressive behind-the-scenes look at the making of Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming film, Pinocchio.
The new footage, shared during streamer Tudum’s annual fan event (feel our dedicated live blog to catch up with more of the latest announcements as they happen), sheds light on the complex processes involved in producing a stop-motion animated feature film.
Del Toro himself narrates the two-minute clip, which teases several scenes from the film and will likely have fans even more anxious awaiting Pinocchio’s December 9 release date. Check out the featurette for yourself below:
As its name suggests, the Netflix movie is a retelling of Carlo Collodi’s beloved 1883 fairy tale about a wooden puppet come to life. Del Toro’s darkest take on history, however, will be set in the 1930s, during Mussolini’s fascist regime.
Filmed in stop-motion similar to the recent Netflix project The HousePinocchio stars Ewan McGregor and newcomer Gregory Mann as the voices of Jiminy Cricket and Pinocchio, respectively, with Game of Thrones alum David Bradley in tow as Geppetto.
Ron Perlman, Tilda Swinton, Christoph Waltz, Cate Blanchett, John Turturro and Finn Wolfhard are among the film’s stellar supporting cast.
When it releases on December 9, Del Toro’s Pinocchio won’t be the only Pinocchio adaptation to arrive in 2022. Forrest Gump filmmaker Robert Zemeckis recently brought the century-old tale to life on Disney Plus, though we’ve labeled the film as a “somewhat magical remake whose strings finally hold it” in our review.
