It really wouldn’t be Comic-Con without “The Walking Dead” being present at this point. It’s one of the most-popular TV shows out there based on one of the most popular comic books out there, and it has been a staple of the San Diego convention for years. This is often the venue where the latest trailer for the season is unveiled, though we imagine that this may be a little bit more difficult thanks to the cliffhanger.
Here’s what we can tell you about the show’s panel this year: It will be (of course) in the enormous Hall H on Friday, July 22 at 1:00 p.m. Pacific time, with Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand and Josh McDermitt being the cast members in attendance along with executive producers Robert Kirkman, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert, Scott M. Gimple, and Gale Anne Hurd. Clearly, an enormous panel as usual.
Meanwhile, the hour before at noon the “Fear the Walking Dead” panel is going to be held with Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Frank Dillane, Lorenzo James Henrie, Mercedes Mason, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia in attendance. On the producing side, the only difference will be that Gimple will be replaced by showrunner Dave Erickson.
There’s also some good news coming out for fans of “Preacher,” as that panel will be held in Hall H on July 22 at 6:30, with Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti and Graham McTavish present alongside executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and co-executive producer Garth Ennis. This panel will last two hours, mostly because it will contain a live reading of the penultimate episode.
