For those of us planning to attend Comic-Con next week, right now is sort of the calm before the story. The schedule has been posted, and for the most part, we know what we're facing. We can spend days mapping out our plan of attack in the hopes of getting into every panel we want to attend, and then cross our fingers that things will work out. Fortunately for Game of Thrones fans, the series will be featured in Hall H, the biggest venue at the convention center, which improves chances that fans will manage to find a seat to see the likes of Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, Richard Madden and John Bradley, all of whom are expected to attend this year's panel, along with executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, not to mention George R.R. Martin.
Game of Thrones isn't the only HBO series to be featured at SDCC. Also returning is True Blood, which is set up in Ballroom 20 on Saturday. The vampire drama's substantial cast will be on hand for that panel, along with executive producer Brian Buckner. And for Cinemax, Banshee and Strike Back will both be featured in panels. Banshee's cast and executive producers will be set up in Room 6A on Friday, while Strike Back executive producer, writer and director Michael J. Bassett will be joining the Cinemax series' cast in Room 6DE for a Saturday panel.
Here are the full details, including autograph signing information, but keep in mind that the talent listed is subject to change between now and SDCC.
And these are just some of the TV shows that will be featured at Comic Con next week. Be sure to check out our additional coverage of what's lined up for the event here.
