Community, Breaking Bad, Under The Dome, Doctor Who And More Set For Comic-Con Sunday Line-Up
Excluding preview night, Sunday may very well be the easiest day at Comic-Con, for those who are willing to stick around for the remaining panels. While there are fewer events scheduled that day, there's still plenty to see and do. Sunday's become a big day for TV panels, most of which typically set up shop in Hall H. This year's Hall H Sunday (July 21) line-up includes Supernatural, Doctor Who, Community, Sons of Anarchy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Breaking Bad. Elsewhere at the convention, Under the Dome's panel will take place, and those looking to celebrate Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly might want to catch the Browncoats meet-up and the "Once More With Feeling" screening.
Below is the list of mainly-TV related panels set up for Sunday at Comic Con in San Diego later this month. I also included information on the Neil Gaiman panel and the Harry Potter panel, because both are awesome.
10:00AM – 11:00AM - Supernatural Special Video Presentation and Q&A Hall H
Series stars Jared Padalecki (Friday the 13th ), Jensen Ackles (My Bloody Valentine 3D), Misha Collins (Ringer), and Mark A. Sheppard (Battlestar Galactica), along with executive producer Jeremy Carver (U.S. version of Being Human) return to Hall H to answer questions from the audience about what's in store for the ninth season of this exciting series. Fans will also be treated to an exclusive video presentation featuring series highlights, as well as a portion of the special features from the upcoming Supernatural: The Complete Eighth Season DVD and Blu-ray release, in stores September 10. The ninth season of Supernatural will premiere this fall in its new Tuesday nighttime period at 9/8c on The CW. The series is produced by Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Stop by the meeting room this year to hang out with Browncoats and hear some news from around the 'verse. Wear a cunning hat. Who knows what could happen? There's no better way to share your love for Firefly, and it's a lot more practical than starting a fight in an Alliance-friendly bar on U-day.

2:15PM – 3:15PM - Under the Dome Room 6BCF
Stars Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Mike Vogel (Bates Motel), and Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight), along with executive producers Brian K. Vaughan (Lost), Neal Bear (Law and Order: SVU), and Jack Bender (Lost), invite you to go under the dome as they discuss the television event of the summer about a small town inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible and indestructible dome. Based on Stephen King's bestselling novel, the series follows "Big Jim" (Norris), the only elected official left under the dome whose abiding love for the town may be surpassed only by his desire for power; Dale "Barbie" Barbara (Vogel), an army veteran with a mysterious past; and "Julia Shumway" (Lefevre), the editor of the local newspaper who is coping with the disappearance of her husband, among other residents who are all struggling to uncover the mystery of the dome that has descended upon their town. They must come together to find ways to survive and work to ultimately rebuild their democracy from the ground up, while facing postapocalyptic situations. Follow them on this journey under the dome, where no one can hide and no one's secret is safe.

The powers that be behind Whedonopolis and Fandom Charities present a screening of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode Once More with Feeling as Comic-Con's big closing event! Many say this is the finest, funniest, most ingenious episode ever to come out of the Buffyverse. But remember, the best part of the show is up to you! This episode was made for talkin' -- back, that is -- and singing and shouting and dancing in the aisles, with or without your dry cleaning!
