Big shows are coming (back) to Netflix in 2017 and binging has never been easier! Stranger Things 2 anyone?! I had the amazing opportunity being invited to the 2017 New York City Netflix Event on Wednesday from the Netflix team and it didn’t disappoint with major announcements being made about their shows every 30 minutes from Bill Nye Saves The World premiering April 21st, 2017 to Orange Is The New Black Season 5 premiering June 9th, 2017. Besides the eight main discussion panels, which included a wide range of actors and celebrities, the Netflix Event went as far as displaying “display tv-show sets” from Fuller House, Bill Nye, and Santa Clarita Diet that were interactive with touch screen displays to make you feel like you were on the movie set yourself!
To see all the celebrities and actors ranging from Drew Barrymore to Selena Gomez that attended the panels, scroll down for photos and of course, my Outfit Of The Day to the event! Enjoy!
