It's no secret that Comic Con in San Diego is less about comics than it once was, with an increasing focus on video games, movies and television. Panels featuring our favorite stars and creators are featured at the summer event, giving fans the the opportunity to see them in person, ask questions and sometimes get a glimpse of what's ahead for whatever the project may be. While it's less about "comic," there is sort of common thread of sci-fi/supernatural/super-hero for most of what's on display. Animation is also featured.
And then there's Glee, which probably fits into a category all on its own. There's no sci-fi involved in the show, nor anything supernatural or super-powered about it. So, earlier this month when it was looking like Glee wasn't going to be returning to SDCC this year, despite being a regular viewer of the show, I can't say that I was all that disappointed. But those who were will likely consider this very good news. Fox announced today that Glee will be returning to SDCC for its fourth consecutive trip. TV Line's Michael Ausiello is set to moderate the panel, which will take place in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 14.
Featured in the panel will be executive producer Brad Falchuk, along with series stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera.
While Glee may not fit in at Comic Con when it comes to the subject matter of the series, which is both teen and music focused, there is one thing that puts the show in the same league as a lot of other movies, TV shows, books and games at Comic Con; Glee has very loyal and passionate fans. The level of enthusiasm for the show is fitting to the spirit of Comic Con. And it's likely that many will turn up to see some of the show's stars in person and hear what they have to say.
If I'm remembering correctly, Glee's panel took place on Sunday in Hall H last year. A move to the Hilton might work out well for everyone, as it means the fans who are only at SDCC for Glee won't be camped out in one of the Convention Center rooms all day just for one panel. Then again, we'll have to wait and see what else is set to take place at the Indigo Ballroom on Saturday.
