·3 min read

We bring heavy news, fellow time travelers! A pair of '80s icons are driving their temporally-displaced DeLoran all the way to New York Comic Con. SYFY WIRE can exclusively reveal that Back to the Future co-stars Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly) and Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown) are confirmed to appear at the annual pop culture gathering held by ReedPop at the Javits Center in Manhattan. This year's NYCC is scheduled to run between Thursday, Oct. 6 and Sunday, Oct. 9.

The Hill Valley duo will officially reunite on Saturday, Oct. 8 to discuss the making of the enduring sci-fi trilogy that transformed them into genre demigods. Fans hoping to get up close and personal with the actors can purchase autograph and photo opportunity packages ranging from $59, all the way up to $999 (if the latter tier is of any interest, then now is the time to start dipping into those Sports Almanac winnings).

Oscar Isaac, Brandon Sanderson, Diana Gabaldon, R. L. Stine, Leigh Bardugo, Frank Miller, Greg Capullo, Frank Cho, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman, Kit Young, Rachel Leigh Cook, Tom Kenny, Rodger Bumpass, Melissa Navia, and Anson Mount are also on this year's roster of A-list guest appearances.
