Each day carries a designated theme – Monday’s was series, Tuesday is film, Wednesday is animation and Friday is Games.
Thursday will be entirely dedicated to hit show Stranger Things, series four of which has recently been released.
Opening day included a preview of a new supernatural detective show Wednesday, starring Jenna Ortega, which is coming later in 2022.
The series follows 16-year-old Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy.
Season One will follow Wednesday as she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorised the local town, and solve the murder mystery that her parents were embroiled in 25 years ago – all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
Also on the roster of upcoming shows is dark fantasy drama The Sandman, a series following the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the mistakes he has made during his vast existence.
Monday’s line-up featured a panel with the cast and producers of the show, which premieres on August 5 this year, and who shared an exclusive teaser trailer for the show,
