Syfy is delivering a lot of fun this year! According to THR, the channel will be bringing 15 panels, trying to compete harder in the geek market. Two big highlights include Orlando Jones performing free geek themed weddings (along with vow renewals) and the Battlestar Galactica cast will be reuniting.
We had learned that Zachary Levi will be taking over hosting for the live-footage after a fallout with the convention and his own network. Besides live-streaming fun, the channel plans to host “trivia trolleys, cosplay karaoke buses (and cosplay repair carts)” along with a drumline marching through the streets playing geek themes.
Not only that, they will also be hosting at the Children’s Museum with “free (first-come-first-served) parties featuring live performances”. The Spazmatics are set to perform on Thursday night. It’s almost overwhelming at how much they’re bringing this year! Check out their panel list below and be sure to tune into their live stream starting Thursday, July 20th.
