Gaumont International Television is serving up something special for Comic Con attendees this year. The production company announced this week that their NBC series Hannibal will featured in a panel at the San Diego-set event this year. And, unlike just about every other SDCC announcement we've heard for TV shows this summer so far, we actually know exactly when and where this panel is taking place. Also coming to SDCC this year is USA's Psych.
Because MTV began promoting their adaptation of 80s horror-comedy Teen Wolf a year ahead of its actual debut, starting with a panel at SDCC in 2010, the horror-drama, which bears very little resemblance to the film by which it was inspired, is headed back to Comic Con in San Diego for the fourth time, though it's technically only amidst its third season. MTV announced today that Teen Wolf will be featured in a panel at SDCC.
Supernatural, Arrow, Revolution And Other WB TV Shows Set For Comic Con, Preview Night Screenings Announced
Warner Bros. Television Group has had a pretty sizable presence at Comic Con in San Diego in recent years, and this year is no exception. The studio announced the 17 series that will be present at SDCC this year, including the new dramas that will be screened during preview night. Those SDCC attendees there for Preview Night (Wed. July 17) and looking for an escape from the crowds, excitement and loot being offered on the convention center floor can head upstairs to Ballroom 20...
We have until January to wait for Starz's new drama series Black Sails to make its debut, and it's just as well. With no Spartacus to look forward to anymore, Michael Bay's new pirate drama may do the trick in quenching our appetites for swords and sea, if not sand. Those who are attending Comic Con in San Diego this July won't have to wait until January to see the Black Sails series premiere if they attend the planned screening for the series.
While it's not always safe to assume that every geek-friendly TV or movie project in the works will make its way to Comic Con in San Diego, some projects are more anticipated and borderline-expected than others. And Joss Whedon's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. likely fits into that category. It ticks off a number of SDCC-compatible checkboxes, when factoring words like "Marvel" and "S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Joss" and "Whedon."
Comic Con is a little over a month away, which means we're at the point where we should start hearing confirmation on what TV shows will be showcased at the convention. The list for 20th Century Fox TV's series has arrived online and indicates that a number of new series will be featured with panels, as well as How I Met Your Mother, which will make its Comic Con debut in San Diego to promote its final season.
