Jimmy sat down in the roundtables for one of his favorite shows, Wynonna Earp! You’ll hear from showrunner Emily Andras and stars Melanie Scrofano (Wynonna Earp), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp), Katherine Barrell (Nicole Haught), Shamier Anderson (Xavier Dolls) and Varun Saranga (Jeremy Chetri). Due to many many many press rooms overlapping, he unfortunately had to leave this one a bit early thus missing out on some of the cast. However, we think you’ll enjoy what he got! Hear all about the current season and where it may be going.

Starting this week and the following few weeks after, there will be no regular format shows. Only SDCC press room specials. Jimmy needs that long just to recover from all of the craziness that is Comic Con International. You will hear roundtables for Inhumans, Doctor Who, Legends of Tomorrow, Batman and Harley Quinn, Dirk Gently, Supergirl, Dark Matter, Gotham, iZombie, Justice League Action, Lucifer and Teen Titans Go!He missed some rooms that he wanted to cover but boy howdy did he still cover a lot!

He mostly did press rooms but managed to get some 1:1 interviews as well. He chatted with the Clare Kramer (“Glory” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) about her new documentary that she directed called Joyrider. He also talked to pop star Lights about her upcoming album Skin & Earth and the comic book mini-series she created/wrote/drew/colored/lettered/etc. that coincides with it. On the last day of the con, he conversed with Shannon Wheeler about his new book Sh*t My President Says as well as his past work. And finally, Jimmy had his annual therapy session interview with clinical psychologist pal Dr. Andrea Letamendi discussing superheroes, Star Wars, and real life issues.

Starting next week and the following few weeks after, there will be no regular format shows. Only SDCC press room specials.
