New York Comic-Con is just a few weeks away, and SYFY is hosting panels and events that celebrate the network’s fan-favorite shows. This year’s event starts on October 3rd and runs through October 6th, at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. The network’s SYFY Wire brand partnered with NYCC producer ReedPOP, and SYFY will be the official streaming partner for the event.
If you aren’t coming to NYCC with us this year, you can still catch all of the updates and events through the SYFY Live Coverage, hosted from the NYCC Live Stage at Booth #174 on the show’s main floor. That stream is available at SYFYWIRE.COM/NYCC.
Big events to look for this year include the 20th anniversary reunion of the cast of “Angel;” the casts of “Outlander,” “The Orville,” “Marvel’s “Runaways;” a gathering of Hobbits (Sean Astin, Billy Boyd) from the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy; Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens; and the voice talent behind three popular Disney Princesses (Jodi Benson/” The Little Mermaid,” Anika Noni Rose/” The Princess and the Frog,” and Paige O’Hara/” Beauty and the Beast”); and much, much more.
In addition to the Live Stage, SYFY WIRE will have 3 more streams of digital content capturing the news and happenings from the Main Stage Panel Room, the Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center, and the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
“The Banana Splits” movies is hosting a premiere screening on Thursday. In this SYFY original movie, the characters (Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky) from the 1968 children’s show, “The Banana Splits Adventure Hour,” go on a bloodthirsty rampage during a live taping of The Banana Splits TV show. The movie will make its world television premiere on SYFY on Saturday, October 12th at 9/8c.
“The Purge” is also hosting a screening and panel on October 3rd, where attendees can see the new season’s first episode. The panel includes Derek Luke, Paola Nuñez, Joel Allen, Rochelle Aytes, James DeMonaco, James Roland, and Krystal Houghton Ziv. The show returns for its second season on October 15th on USA Network.
The network is also hosting a panel and screening for the new show “Resident Alien,” and that takes place on October 4th. Fans can be the first to see Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Rogue One) as an alien. The panel includes Alan, cast members Sara Tomko (Once Upon a Time) and Corey Reynolds (The Closer), and writer/executive producer Chris Sheridan (Family Guy). The show is based on the Dark Horse comic and follows a stranded alien’s attempts to fit into small town American life… while continuing to pursue his own mysterious agenda.
The network is hosting “The Great Debate” on October 4th. Celebrity nerds battle against each other over hilariously epic debates. SYFY’s description reads, “Who is cooler, Wolverine or Han Solo? Were the Smurfs delightful, or kinda terrifying? Would you rather have a Green Lantern ring or a Wizard Wand?”.
On Saturday, the big “Wynonna Earp” panel goes live. The panel includes the show’s creator Emily Andras, with cast members Melanie Scrofano, Dominique Provost-Chalkley and Katherine Barrell. They will be discussing the show’s upcoming fourth season.
