“#Comic-Con at Home: ‘The Walking Dead’, Marvel’s ‘Helstrom’, ‘The Simpsons’, and More Panels Announced”
San Diego Comic-Con is still happening this year, but guests won’t have to actually make the annual pilgrimage to Southern California because this year, Comic-Con is going virtual. Several Comic-Con at Home panels have been announced for shows like The Walking Dead, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Solar Opposites, a new animated Netflix show from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and more. Get the details below.
A full list of Comic-Con at Home participants has yet to be revealed, but as several major studios and franchises have decided to essentially replicate the Hall H experience with conventions of their own (D23, DC FanDome, etc.), there are still plenty of companies out there looking to capture the attention of Comic-Con fans this year.
AMC will be featuring season 2 of NOS4A2, as well as its entire Walking Dead slate of shows – The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and The Walking Dead: World Beyond – and potentially teasing more information about The Walking Dead movie. At last year’s Comic-Con, we saw a brief teaser and learned that the movie, which was originally set to be made for television, is actually going to be coming to theaters via Universal Pictures. Is that still the plan now that the coronavirus has upended Hollywood? Perhaps we’ll find out.
NOS4A2 returns to Comic-Con for its second season, which kicked off on Sunday, June 21 and airs through August 23. Moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s Clark Collis, the panel will feature Showrunner and Executive Producer Jami O’Brien, Executive Producer Joe Hill, and cast member Zachary Quinto.
The Walking Dead will make its 11th San Diego Comic-Con appearance with a panel spotlighting the season 10 finale episode, “A Certain Doom,” which will air as a standalone episode later this year. Moderated by Chris Hardwick (Talking Dead), the panel will feature TWDU Chief Content Officer Scott M. Gimple, Showrunner and Executive Producer Angela Kang, Executive Producer Greg Nicotero, who directed the season finale, and cast members Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lauren Cohan, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, and Paola Lazaro, among others.
Fear the Walking Dead will present a panel for the series’ upcoming sixth season, premiering later this year. Moderated by Hardwick, the panel will feature Gimple, Showrunners and Executive Producers Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, and cast members Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Karen David, Jenna Elfman, and Rubén Blades.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond makes its Comic-Con International debut as the third series in wildly successful The Walking Dead Universe. Moderated by Hardwick, the series’ panel will feature Gimple, Showrunner and Executive Producer Matt Negrete, and cast members Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Hal Cumpston, Nicholas Cantu, Nico Tortorella, Julia Ormond, and Joe Holt.
