Prime Video has announced its programming block and consumer experience for this year’s New York Comic Con. The line-up will feature live, in-person panels from returning fan-favourite series and highly anticipated new series, including The Legend of Vox Machina, Good Omens, The Wheel of Time, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and The Peripheral.

The panels will offer fans a chance to hear directly from some their favourite Prime Video talent through moderated Q&As, as well as the opportunity to be among the first to see exclusive first looks and never-before-seen footage from a stellar line-up of Prime Video titles. The panels will also be livestreamed at Popverse, prior to being made available for VoD playback to ReedPop members and digital ticket holders.

Prime Video Panels at New York Comic Con:

  • Panel: The Legend of Vox Machina

Based on the beloved characters and adventures of Critical Role’s first livestreamed tabletop role-playing game campaign, this fantasy adventure quickly grew into an animated sensation. After saving the realm from evil and destruction at the hands of the most terrifying power couple in Exandria, Vox Machina is faced with saving the world once again—this time, from a sinister group of dragons known as the Chroma Conclave.

About: In 2019, Aziraphale and Crowley helped save the world from the Apocalypse. Next year, they’ll return to solve a mystery that takes in all of Heaven and Hell. It’s time for an overdue celebration of all things Good Omens, and some of the creators and cast will return to New York Comic Con for a very special fan Q&A. Plan your questions and get ready to share in the behind-the-scenes stories of our favourite angel and demon, and perhaps some of your most burning questions about what you can expect in Season Two will be answered with more than just a “wait and see.”
