Based on folks I've talked with, and from what people have told me they saw posted online, the consensus that Bran-Con was really good is nearly unanimous.
Calling it now: Bran-Con 2020 is going to be that much better.
Not long after we first announced Bran-Con, Cas Anvar was the very first celebrity to sign on with us. For our first-year convention, this was an incredible honor to have him be able to appear.
But, a little while back Amazon decided to bump up the production schedule for season 5 of The Expanse. Cas had held out that he'd still be able to manage his appearance at Bran-Con between various shoots/production needs, but we now know with certainty that this unfortunately isn't the case.
