One of the more hotly anticipated panels at Comic Con in San Diego in the past few years has been AMC's The Walking Dead. Between the popularity of the zombie drama series and the popularity of the comic book on which it's based, there is definitely no shortage of zombie fanatics hoping to get into that one. And then factor in the the series history of debuting its first big trailer at the event and it's understandable that people would be lined up in the hopes of getting into the panel. AMC announced details for The Walking Dead's presence at Comic Con this year, along with unveiling the above banner, which you can see even better by clicking the thumbnail at the bottom of this article.
The banner seems to recognize that, while Rick may still be the star of this series, the people love Daryl! We also love Tyrese and Michonne. These guys look like warriors and if the sight of them wielding their weapons against hoards of walkers doesn't get you excited for Season 4, I don't know what will! As for the panel, there's no word on where it will be, though we can hope they'll put it in Hall H again. What we do know is that it's set up on Friday, July 19, which is the same day the autograph session will take place.
WHAT: The cast and producers of AMC’s record-breaking hit series “The Walking Dead” will participate in a panel at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, CA. “The Walking Dead” panelists will discuss what fans can expect in the highly anticipated fourth season, which debuts in October.
As mentioned, hopefully the panel will be in Hall H, the biggest venue at the Convention Center. And we can also hope that the series will follow previous years in showing us some finished footage from Season 4 during the panel. At the very least, attendees who manage to get into the panel will get to see stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey, Chad Coleman and Scott Wilson. They'll also to hear from the new showrunner Scott Gimple as well as executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Greg Nicotero, not to mention EP and comic series creator Robert Kirkman. That's a lot of talent lined up.
The Walking Dead fans have the Season 4 Preview Weekend to look forward to in just a few days.
