CAST AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS TO JOIN TV GUIDE'S DAMIAN HOLBROOK
FOR A SPECIAL THURSDAY NIGHT PANEL
'SIREN' IS CABLE'S MOST SOCIALLY ENGAGING NEW SERIES
Freeform announced today that it will bring the cast and executive producers of the critically acclaimed mermaid drama "Siren" to New York Comic Con on Thursday, Oct. 4, to do a deep dive exploring the behind-the-scenes secrets of the show, recap season one and reveal what fans can expect from the highly anticipated season two when it premieres in January.
Among those attending New York Comic Con are stars Eline Powell ('Ryn'), Alex Roe ('Ben'), Fola Evans-Akingbola ('Maddie') and executive producers Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald.
"Siren" was the No. 1 new cable drama during its spring run among Women 18-49 and the most socially engaging new cable drama, yielding 4.83 million engagements across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Google +.
Building on the foundation of an epic first season, season two of the popular drama promises an appearance of more mermaids in the coastal town of Bristol Cove ... but are they seeking revenge or is something more catastrophic driving them out of the sea? Marine researchers Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) continue to establish a bond with mermaid Ryn (Eline Powell), not only to protect her, but to try to help save her entire civilization.
"Siren" is executive produced by Eric Wald and Emily Whitesell, who serves as showrunner. Dean White, Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb also serve as executive producers.
