Along with the cast, fans will be able to get a sneak peak at the submersive superhero series set to debut in late July. Fans at the event will be able to head over to the Amazon Prime Video Experience where they’re bringing not one but two episodes with them so you won’t want to miss it.

Thursday, July 18
Undone: From Raphael Bob-Waksberg & Kate Purdy, the acclaimed creators of BoJack Horseman, comes Undone, a groundbreaking and genre bending animated series, starring Rosa Salazar, about a young woman’s complex journey to unlock her past and solve the mystery of her father’s death.
Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront, 1:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. PT
Friday, July 19
The Boys: Join executive producers Seth Rogen and Eric Kripke, along with series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, and Elisabeth Shue, with moderator Aisha Tyler, for a behind the scenes look at their upcoming series. 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. It’s the powerless against the super-powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven. The series premieres July 26 on Amazon Prime Video.
Ballroom 20, San Diego Convention Center, 3 :30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. PT
Carnival Row: Join stars Orlando Bloom, Cara Delevingne, David Gyasi, Tamzin Merchant and executive producers Travis Beacham and Marc Guggenheim for a sneak peek and conversation about Carnival Row, moderated by Tim Kash. Set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose exotic homelands were invaded by the empires of man, Amazon Prime Video’s Carnival Row explores how this growing population struggles to coexist with humans — forbidden to live, love, or fly with freedom. But even in darkness, hope lives, as a human detective, Rycroft Philostrate (Orlando Bloom), and a refugee faerie named Vignette Stonemoss (Cara Delevingne) rekindle a dangerous affair despite an increasingly intolerant society.
Ballroom 20, San Diego Convention Center 4:45 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. PT

The Expanse: The series has had an incredible journey since San Diego last saw the Rocinante crew. They return with news from beyond the Ring Gate and from their new home – thanks to help from the fans – as an Amazon Prime Video series.

Indigo Ballroom, Hilton Bayfront Hotel, 1:00 p.m. – 1:50 p.m. PT
