Ever wonder what lurks beneath the water?

Siren Panel from 4:00 – 5:15 p.m.
What if there was something sinister swimming beneath the sea’s surface? The coastal town of Bristol Cove is known for quaintness and one other thing: once being home to mermaids. Life becomes complicated when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this mermaid out of her home. Are there more like her out there?
The panel will include the world premiere screening of the first episode, followed by a Q&A with cast members Eline Powell, Alex Roe, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Ian Verdun, and executive producers Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald.
Exclusive Marvel artist “Siren” NYCC poster will be given out at the panel.

As if that isn’t enough, fans will also get a chance to experience these shows and the highly anticipated series, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, at the Freeform activation zone located right across from the Javits Center. It will be open October 5–8 and is located at the corner of 11th and 37th street. As it gets closer to NYCC, they will release more details about this!
