Syfy Live From Comic Con

Syfy is bringing the love to Comic Con again this year with several excellent panels including The Expanse and The Magicians, and they are brining something totally new to the world’s largest pop culture event, a live show called, Syfy Live From Comic Con.  (well what else would you call it?)  A three-night telecast directly from the heart of San Diego starts tonight.  The live show promises to offer some exclusive access, and some exclusive content, from “the hottest franchises.” Mostly likely many Syfy shows will make the cut I’m sure.


Hosted by Lego Batman aka Will Arnett the outdoor event at the Marriott Marquis & Marina should be pretty fun.  Will is an excellent MC and host.  I can imagine we might also get a sneak peak at his upcoming Lego Batman movie too.  The complete and somewhat eclectic  guest list was just released you can find that below.  Guests range from the cast of Star Trek to Tara Reid to Norman Reedus – who must be taking a break from being naked in Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding from video game.


“For nearly two decades, Syfy has been a mainstay at Comic-Con,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Each and every year, we can’t wait to get to San Diego to share our mutual fandom and passion for all things pop culture with our viewers. And this year, we’re thrilled to extend that immediate, first-hand access to those at home as well.”


Syfy Live will air on the network Thursday, July 21 through Saturday, July 23 at 8/7c.
