Comic-Con 2011 kicks off in San Diego in just a couple of weeks, which means the schedules should continue to roll in as TV networks prepare to showcase their programming with panels and screenings. Syfy’s schedule is up and while their panels are spread out between Friday and Saturday during the event, rest assured there’s a place for Syfy fans to go to kick back and appreciate the network during the Con.
Among the Syfy shows to be featured in panels at SDCC this year are Eureka, Warehouse 13, Sanctuary, and Being Human. The upcoming new series Alphas is also set up for a panel. Meanwhile, those who want to get an early look at an episode of Eureka and Haven will be able to catch those on Friday night, along with the exclusive premiere of Syfy’s new digital series The Mercury Man.
Also set to return to the convention this year is Syfy’s Café Diem, which is set up across the street from the convention center at the Hard Rock Hotel. I didn’t manage to fit in a visit to Café Diem last year, but I’m definitely going to try this time around, if only to see what kind of Syfy-themed food is on the menu.
Below is the schedule for Syfy’s panels and screenings. As a fan of Being Human, I’m really hoping to make it to that one!
Syfy’s panel schedule is as follows (subject to change):
