What if there was something sinister swimming beneath the sea’s surface? In Freeform’s new original drama “Siren,” the coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids, is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc upon the quaint village. 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, and 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. The panel will be moderated by TBD. Exclusive “Siren” NYCC poster designed by Marvel artists will be given out at the panel.
