While a few of the major movie studios are sitting out comic-con this year, TV is going to be present in a big way. HBO and Cinemax have just added a couple more to the (already huge) TV pile with Hall H staple Game of Thrones and the new Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) series Outcast.
The Game of Thrones is set for Hall H at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, July 10. Seth Meyers will moderate the panel that includes executive producer Carolyn Strauss and director David Nutter (who directed three of the series’ most devastating episodes – ‘Mother’s Mercy’, ‘The Dance of Dragons’ and ‘The Rains of Castamere’), and cast members Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Natalie Dormer, Conleth Hill, Hannah Murray, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten and Maisie Williams.
While that’s a fantastic lineup, it’s worth noting that a number of fan favorites are not scheduled to appear, including all the major Lannisters – Peter Dinklage, Lena Heady and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, as well as Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington. Series creator George R.R. Martin will also sit out this year to focus on finishing The Winds of Winter.
Audiences will get a first look at Kirkman’s new series Outcast on Saturday, July 11 at 3:00 p.m. in Room 6DE. Kumail Nanjiani (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) will moderate a panel including creators and executive producers Robert Kirkman and Chris Black, cast members Patrick Fugit, Philip Glenister, and Wrenn Schmidt, and two surprise special guest panelists.
