SciFiNow and The Companion launch new digital magazine SciFiNow+

Welcome to SciFiNow+ a new digital magazine offering from SciFiNow and The Companion…


In a year that has brought nothing but bad news for magazine publishers, we’re delighted to announce SciFiNow+, a new fortnightly digital launch from SciFiNow and The Companion.

SciFiNow+ has been carefully crafted to reflect the prestige format magazine experience, with high-quality covers, world-beating entertainment journalism, news, reviews, analysis, retro throwback features, and interviews, all under the curation of SciFiNow Editor Rachael Harper.

“The print magazine launched in 2007 when there was a clear appetite for the wave of high-quality US shows that were being overlooked by existing film and TV mags,” explains Rachael. “Since then the brand has continued to innovate. With the print magazine on hiatus, SciFiNow+ is the best way to continue that legacy whilst better reflecting the way that our global audience consume the books, comics, movies and TV series that they love.”

SciFiNow+ Issue 1 is released 15 December and leads with exclusive coverage of the eagerly anticipated and much-delayed Wonder Woman 1984, including an interview with director Patty Jenkins as well as author interviews, news, reviews and a Flashback to The Outer Limits.

Unlike the print magazine which was released every four weeks, SciFiNow+ will be released fortnightly. This change in frequency will allow for closer coverage of the streaming shows and movies that have come to dominate lives with the onset of Covid-19, allowing the magazine content to shape the debate around shows like The Mandalorian, The Expanse and Star Trek: Discovery.

“With twice as many coveted SciFiNow issues a year, SciFiNow+ has greater freedom to champion emerging SF authors and independent films,” Rachael continues. “Also, as a fortnightly digital magazine free from advertising constraints, SciFiNow+ has no barriers when it comes to telling the stories that our readers are the most passionate about.”

No ads and no clickbait, The Companion is dedicated to original long reads and exclusive in-depth interviews on the likes of Stargate, Farscape, Star Trek, Quantum Leap, The X-Files, and more.

Your membership to The Companion gets you three epic long reads a week, as well as early access to showrunner podcasts, invites to live events and AMAs, and, of course, every single issue of SciFiNow+ as it’s released.
