Amazon Prime Video will be hosting panels for two new series – Good Omens and The Boys – as well as returning shows The Man in the High Castle and Lore at the 2018 New York Comic Con. The panels, which will feature the casts and creators of the shows, will take place during the October 4-7th event held at Javits Center in New York City.

Among the talent expected to take part in the Amazon Prime Video panels are The Man in the High Castle‘s Alexa Davalos, Rufus Sewell, Joel De La Fuente and Chelah Horsdal. Lore cast members include Josh Bowman, Thomas Kretschmann, Elie Haddad and Alicia Witt. The Boys‘ Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, and Erin Moriarty, and Good Omens‘ David Tennant, Michael Sheen, and Miranda Richardson are also scheduled to participate in the New York Comic Con panels.

In addition to hosting panels, Amazon Prime Video will be holding autograph signings as well as a special NYCC fan experience in support of Good Omens. Per Amazon: “On the convention floor, a peculiar elevator will carry guests to an undisclosed location, detailing their fate in the great cosmic chess game between good and evil. Doors will open to reveal guests’ ill-fated luck, or alternately their blessed end, as they step inside either Heaven or Hell.

‘Heaven’ will welcome guests to fussy angel Aziraphale’s bookshop, where they can explore the antiquities within and even try their hand at speaking to God. Guests destined for ‘Hell,’ will be welcomed to hop inside loose-living demon Crowley’s 1926 Bentley for a devilish photo moment. Fans unable to attend NYCC will get the chance to digitally interact with the experience through a series of social media extensions.”
