The TV-Themed Comic-Con 2023 Activations You Need to See



With ongoing writers and actors strikes, as well as major studios such as Disney skipping out on their usual panels, it’s a very different San Diego Comic-Con in 2023.

But the (TV) show must go on.

Despite the unusual circumstances surrounding this year’s SDCC, several TV networks and publishers are continuing to provide activations for Comic-Con attendees to explore. For instance, Hulu is giving fans the opportunity to enter their own cartoon world, Paramount+ has created a lodge full of its mountain of content, and AMC Networks is using the Anne Rice universe to provide an experience with some bite.

Here are the TV-themed activations you need to see for 2023, many of which will run through Sunday, July 23:

AMC Networks is bringing New Orleans to San Diego with the Anne Rice Immortal Universe fan experience, inspired by Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches.

Visitors can walk the Street of Immortality for an immersive experience full of photo opportunities and some iconic locations from Interview with the Vampire. Attendees can also collect exclusive souvenirs or even stop at a speakeasy for Pom Wonderful’s Elixir of Immortality mocktail. Created with 3CS and Campfire, the experience runs from July 20-22 at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter Hotel terrace.
