Tudum Ta-Da

While Netflix has a respectable and growing science-fiction library and those titles were present in their Tudum fan event, there wasn't much in the way of substantial sci-fi news or footage.

Hellbound - which we're not sure yet is sci-fi - was renewed for a second season. We got a teaser for They Cloned Tyrone, which looks much less sci-fi than its name might lead you to believe. Plus a teaser for a new anime series Moonrise.
