I love this show, I love everything about the mermaid mythology, they continue to do a lot of research by checking into mermaid mythology that is present in many cultures around the world. I chatted with them at the New York Comic Con, right after this:
In a room of screaming fans during their New York Comic Con panel, Freeform announced today that the sophomore season of the critically acclaimed mermaid drama “Siren” will premiere on THURSDAY, JAN. 24!
Executive Producers Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald also announced a contest where fans of the show can enter for a chance to swim with the mermaids on the set of “Siren” and have his or her photo featured in the show. Launching on Oct. 18, Freeform will select a winner from among the top 10 most voted photos. This spring, the winner will be flown to Vancouver to visit the set. For additional details, please visit Freeform.com/SirenContest.
I asked if I was eligible to enter, and they said yes!
I chatted with Eric and Emily about season two. Spoiler alert, Helen may not be the only townsperson with mermaid DNA!
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.
I congratulated these great young actors and said it was a thrill to meet them last year before the show hit the airwaves, (read my interview with a Mermaid from here) and then again this year to tell them how great a job they were doing and how I enjoyed the show. I tried to get spoilers for you, but these actors said we have to tune in January 24 on Freeform!
