What would a great geek event like Adult Swim Festival be without some panels? The Rick and Morty panel will challenge the global voice cast against each other as they go head-to-head to determine who is the "Rickiest Rick" in the multiverse. Then, head back to the Blue Ridge Mountains during the Squidbillies panel featuring series creators and cast as they reflect on memorable squids moments and celebrate the final season. Aqua Teen Hunger Force fans will join the cast & crew as they look back on the longstanding history of the series and share some of their favorite moments. Expanding on the legendary "Blade Runner" franchise, Blade Runner: Black Lotus makes its festival debut with a panel diving deep into the franchise universe alongside producers and directors. Then join Michael Cusack & Zach Hadel as they discuss the upcoming series Smiling Friends with special guests.

And how do fan-favorite episodes selected by series creators to create an impressive set of watch party playlists sound? Each watch party will feature a live chat where viewers can get real-time reactions and insight on their favorite shows.
