It's almost for the 2023 edition of Netflix Tudum, everyone. The streaming giant's annual global fan event, which began in January 2020, is back for its fifth outing (and for its first live event in three years). For those wanting to know when it'll take place – without scrolling through this guide – it's happening on Saturday, June 17.

If you're anything like us, you'll be besides yourself about what'll be revealed to be coming to the world's best streaming service between now and early 2024. So, we imagine you'll want to know all of the most important details about Netflix Tudum 2023. 

Below, we've compiled a list of all the biggest details about the streamer's next big event. That includes its start date and time, where you can watch Tudum 2023's livestream, how many of the best Netflix shows will be part of what's shown, all of the new Netflix movies that are coming to the platform, and so much more.

So, whether you're planning to tune in and out throughout the day (or evening, based on where you are in the world) or if you'll be watching the whole thing in-person or online, here's everything you need to know about Netflix Tudum 2023.

What is Netflix Tudum?

For the uninitiated, Netflix Tudum is an annual, global pop culture fan event celebrating all things, well, Netflix. During each event, the streaming giant reveals more about its slate of new original films and TV series that are set to debut (or return, in the case of some of its most popular shows) in the coming months and years. 

Last year, we received confirmation of the release dates for The Witcher: Blood Origin, You season 4, Outer Banks season 3, and The Crown season 5. We were also treated to exclusive clips of Wednesday's first season and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, as well as plenty of other surprises. You can read a full round-up of every announcement in our Netflix Tudum 2022 live blog.

Netflix Tudum's first event was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in January 2020. However, future in-person events were scuppered by the Covid-19 pandemic, which meant the next three editions were exclusively held online. This year's celebration is the first that'll be conducted with a live audience again since Tudum's inaugural event, and it's being held in Sao Paulo again. Outer Banks' Chase Stokes, Never Have I Ever's Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Back to 15's Maisa will be the this year's main hosts.

Tudum 2023 will officially begin on Saturday, June 17 at 5:30pm BRT / 1:30pm PT / 4:30pm ET / 9:30pm BST. Australian viewers can tune in at 6:30am AEST on Sunday, June 18. The event is expected to last for two hours, according to Netflix's press website. However, this being a live event, it could overrun, so make sure you have plenty of snacks with you.

Where can I watch Netflix Tudum 2023?

The 2023 edition of Netflix Tudum will be available to watch on Netflix's YouTube channel (or via the YouTube link above), the streamer's own app, and its Facebook and Twitter pages. It's also possible that Netflix will livestream the event on its Twitch channel, too, but it hasn't confirmed this yet.

For anyone who might be worried about the livestream being stuck behind a paywall: don't be. Netflix Tudum will be free to watch anywhere in the world, and in multiple languages, too. No matter where you're tuning in from, then, you'll be able to stream it as long as you have an internet connection. Well, unless you're one of the lucky few to attend the event in-person. We're not jealous, honest...

Netflix Tudum 2023's movie line-up is looking like it'll be on the small side. Will the streaming company make up for the lack of big-budget films with a sizeable TV series line-up, then?
