Then on Saturday, attendees can stop by the Indigo Ballroom at 11AM for Childhood’s End, the upcoming six-hour miniseries, to catch a glimpse of stars Mike Vogel, Julian McMahon, Daisy Betts, and Yael Stone as they discuss the series. Then, stick around for 12 Monkeys at 12PM, with Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Barbara Sukowa, Emily Hampshire, and Todd Stashwick as they look to season two of the series.

A few hours later at 4PM in the Indigo Ballroom, fans can stop by for a screening of the upcoming series The Expanse, followed by a panel with Thomas Jane, Steven Strait, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cas Anvar, Dominque Tipper, and Wes Chatham.

Finally, at 5:30PM in Indigo, Z Nation will cap off Syfy’s appearance with stars DJ Qualls, Kellita Smith, Keith Allan, Russell Hodgkinson, Nat Zang, and Anastasia Baranova.
