Apple TV+ is heading to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time this year, and they’re bringing some of the best shows on TV (streaming or otherwise) with them. Fans will be welcomed into the worlds of Severance, For All Mankind, and Mythic Quest, as well as a panel featuring an inside look at the what goes into the making of See, Foundation, Invasion, and more.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to get “severed” and immerse themselves in the world of Lumon Industries, the fictional (but slightly too real) company from Severance. The Hard Rock Hotel will transform into an immersive experience that takes “employees” through their first day on the severed floor where all of their senses will be required if they hope to be reunited with their “outtie”. Maybe if we’re very good, we’ll get a waffle party.
Additional details about the activation have been revealed — and attendees will be invited into the world of Lumon Industries on Thursday, July 21 – Sunday, July 24 from 9:30am-7pm daily. From the moment you enter the boardroom, though, things are not as they seem.
New “employees” will navigate through locations featured in the series for an up-close dive into the Lumon world, including the iconic boardroom where new hires meet their “innie” and MDR where they can try their hand at refining data. Lumon “employees” will be there to help you gather perks, and to keep an eye on you.
To attend, you’ll be able to reserve a timeslot for Lumon’s employee orientation at welcometolumon.com each day at 6am PT, starting on Thursday, July 21. Additional slots will be released each day at 6am PT, and there will also be a standby line for those without a reservation.
Proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test are required for entry, along with face masks and ID.
Here’s a look at the panels:
