1. Star Trek Universe | Exclusive Conversations with Casts of Star Trek: Lower Decks & Star Trek: Discovery + Surprise Guests

Thursday October 8 @ 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST PM

The beloved panel returns to New York Comic-Con with a special virtual edition, featuring exclusive back-to-back conversations with casts and producers from the Star Trek Universe on CBS All Access, alongside a few special surprise guests. Join the creator of Star Trek: Lower Decks, Mike McMahan, and series voice cast for a special edition of CBS All Access’ official Star Trek after-show, The Ready Room, as they dive into the season one finale with host Wil Wheaton. Voice cast appearing include Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Eugene Cordero, Noël Wells, Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O’Connell, Fred Tatasciore, and Gillian Vigman.

2. Amazon Prime Video Presents - The Boys

Thursday October 8 @ 4:15 PM - 4:45 PM EST

Join The Boys’ cast and Showrunner as they answer fans’ burning questions and tease what’s to come in advance of the shocking finale of the critically-acclaimed second season. Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. The even more intense and insane Season Two, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and trying to regroup and fight back against Vought.

3. Get Your Freaky On | Inside Blumhouse's New Body-Swap Slasher

Friday October 9 @ 6:40 PM - 7:10 PM EST

From the deliciously debased mind of writer-director Christopher Landon, Blumhouse’s Freaky (out Friday, Nov. 13) offers a twisted take on the body-swap movie, as a teenage girl (Blocker’s Kathryn Newton) switches bodies with a relentless serial killer (Vince Vaughn).

Join writer-director Christopher Landon, the film’s stars—Vince Vaughn, Kathryn Newton, Celeste O’Connor, and Misha Osherovich for a rollicking, riotous conversation about their pitch-black horror comedy and the bloodthirsty hell of high school. Moderated by Variety’s Jenelle Riley.

4. Smallville Cast | 20 Years of Fandom, Friendship & Flying

Saturday October 10 @ 1:45 PM - 2:30 PM EST 

Join Tom Welling, Sam Witwer, Laura Vandervoort, and Michael Rosenbaum on this look back at this groundbreaking show and a look ahead at what's next for this Super-group.

5. What We Do In The Shadows - Live Panel Discussion with Cast & Producers

Sunday October 11 @ 1:40 PM - 2:10 PM EST 

Fresh off its eight (8!) Emmy® nominations, What We Do in the Shadows returns to New York Comic Con for a LIVE discussion with the cast and producers. Come with your burning questions about vampires, slayers, ghosts, necromancers and… Jackie Daytona! Named “TV’s funniest comedy” by Rolling Stone, What We Do in the Shadows is a documentary-style look into the daily (or rather, nightly) lives of four vampires who’ve “lived” together for hundreds of years. Joining the conversation will be series stars Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillén, Mark Proksch and the creative team. Seasons 1 and 2 are now available on FX on Hulu. BAAAAT!
