Prime Video have revealed details about what they have in store for New York Comic Con 2022 with their newest original Series, The Peripheral, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Jack Reynor, and Gary Carr.
From October 6th through 9th, Prime Video will invite NYCC attendees to step into the world of 2032 right inside the Javits Center. Appearing as a normal strip mall outpost, the Forever Fab 3D print shop storefront is more than meets the eye.
Based on William Gibson’s best-selling novel The Peripheral, the sci-fi thriller series centers on Flynne Fisher (Chloe Grace Moretz) lives in the rural American South, working at the local 3D printing shop, while earning much needed extra money playing VR games for rich people. One night she dons a headset and finds herself in futuristic London—a sleek and mysterious world, alluringly different from her own hardscrabble existence. But this isn’t like any game she’s ever played before: Flynne begins to realize it isn’t virtual reality… it’s real. Someone in London, seventy years in the future, has found a way to open a door to Flynne’s world. And as utterly beguiling as London is… it’s also dangerous. As Flynne searches to discover who has connected their worlds, and for what purpose, her presence here sets dangerous forces into motion…forces intent on destroying Flynne and her family in her own world. The Peripheral is master storyteller William Gibson’s dazzling, hallucinatory glimpse into the fate of mankind — and what lies beyond.
Guests will follow signs prompting them to “see the future printed before their eyes” and enter Forever Fab print shop. Inside, they’ll hear the thrum of 3D printers and see items from the year 2032 come to life– from 3D printed candies to Flynne’s iconic Peripheral headset. As they make their way toward the back, they’ll see surveillance cameras and someone from the future that urges them toward an unknown “sim.” As the messages grow more urgent, guests will realize that the future has something more in store for them.
The Forever Fab 3D Print Shop will be open daily at NYCC inside the Javits Center from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. EST.
Prime Video’s NYCC panel for The Peripheral will be held on the Main Stage on October 8th at 11:00 a.m. EST, and will feature Moretz, Reynor, and Carr, as well as other cast members and executive producers. The Peripheral will be available to stream worldwide on Prime Video beginning Oct. 21st.
