The only thing I think could be better than another Casket Match from the phenom in 2021! Netflix and the WWE have partnered up to bring one really cool Halloween special featuring The Undertaker to the streaming service giant on October 5th, 2021- Escape the Undertaker!
That’s right folks, The Undertaker (Mark Calaway), gets his own and FIRST featured film for the Halloween season- as far cry from playing second fiddle to the Hulkster as a toddler- talking bounty hunter from Outer Space, (heh, Suburban Commando). And it’s fan-friendly as an interactive experience where Escape the Undertaker will give viewers the power to decide the actions of the Undertaker’s new victims, as they try to escape the wrath of the WWE legend.
“In this interactive film featuring WWE Superstars, The Undertaker has set a trap for the decorated tag team The New Day at his mansion. What they don’t know: The Undertaker’s mansion is an extreme Haunted House, packed to the brim with supernatural challenges. It’s up to viewers to decide the fate of these three poor souls trying to survive the wrath of The Undertaker.”
Ahhhh… Those sweet, sweet smells of plastic glory and nostalgia are coming back for another round of Netflix binge-worthy programming. The Toys That Made Us is officially confirmed for a second season!
My heart is so happy.
Making its debut last December on the streaming giant, the short four-episode series that featured childhood relics’ such as G.I. JOE, Star Wars, Barbie, and He-Man/ Masters of the Universe was a Christmas gift beyond expectations for us retro toy geeks. The educational trip down memory lane was glorious indeed, it left people like yours truly over here, drooling for further episodes. While we still have the second-half of season one on the way featuring stories behind LEGO, Transformers, Hello Kitty and Star Trek, (coming within the next few months) the thought of another ringing of the Liberty Bell of Nostalgia with our favorite pieces of plastic playthings, just gives me all the fuzzies. And, thanks to an interview with Den of Geek, brainchild of the series Brian Volk-Weiss speaks on what HE wants to focus on for the anticipated second season.
*Mind you, these aren’t confirmed but if that’s the man in charge, I’d expect to see at least one, or all of these in upcoming episodes!
No release date has been announced as of now, but I’ll only assume another slot around Christmas 2018, might be a good guess. In the meantime, can we get a Rainbow Brite episode, please?
