When you think of SDCC, it pretty much goes hand in hand with SyFy, right? This year, it’s no different. And while NerdHQ still isn’t happening, SyFy will be there to keep the party going. Not only will they be bringing many of their great shows, they’ll also be hosting competitions, dance parties, and more!
For those into the panels, SyFy has their prescene known during 3 out of the 4 days of the con. This includes fan favorites like Wynonna Earp, Krypton, and The Magicians! Each panel is currently set to host many of the stars of the show and with upcoming debuts, we’re looking forward to the goodies they intend to share. Also be ready to say goodbye to the bizzarely popular Sharknado series! They also have some discussion panels like SYFY WIRE FANGRRLS: Women Changing the Game, highlighting the awesome female fans of sci-fi.
As for the other activities going on, fans can head to the New Children’s Museum Thursday through Saturday to get limited edition exclusive merch. One of which features “an original, custom genre-themed design by a famed artist”. How exciting! You can also head to the New Children’s Museum Friday and Saturday night (with an RSVP) at 9pm for epic dance parties! And if that wasn’t enough, Orlando Jones will be back, bringing his drumline to Gaslamp. Additionally, he’ll be going around passing out Fan Creator Award medals, so bring out your best cosplay!
Check out their schedule below and let us know what you think! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more SDCC 2018 news!

waiting for them out there — it’s already on their ship. Unlike anything you’ve seen before, NIGHTFLYERS combines horror and science fiction in a way that Martin himself has described as “Psycho in space.” Join the cast and creators for an exclusive look into this exciting new series.
