The eighth and final season of Dexter kicked off on Showtime this past Sunday, but just because the season is already underway doesn’t mean the series is skipping one last trip to Comic-Con. Showtime announced today that a panel for Dexter will be held in the massive Hall H on Thursday, July 18th at 6:30pm, where surprise guest stars “who are too big to mention” are promised. KROQ’s Ralph Garman will moderate the panel, which will include cast members Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, David Zayas, James Remar, and even guest star Yvonne Strahovski. Also taking part in the Q&A will be executive producers John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, and Manny Coto. The network will also be hosting signings and giving away free merchandise at the Showtime booth on the convention floor.
