We’ve already seen two trailers for the return of ThunderCats on Cartoon Network, but the premiere of the series itself is nearly upon us as the cable network has announced the series will kick-off with an hour-long premiere on Friday, July 29th at 8/7c. Then the series will hit its regular timeslot at 8:30/7:30c on August 5th. But before all that, audiences at Comic-Con in San Diego will be able to watch the full premiere episode at a ThunderCats panel on Friday, July 22nd at 3:30pm in Room 6A. The panel will include a discussion with producers Michael Jelenic, Ethan Spaulding and art director Dan Norton.

And if you’re anxious to check out some of the old school ThunderCats before this new series takes off, Cartoon Network will also air nine episodes from the classic ThunderCats series over the weekend of July 23 and Boomerang will also host a classic ThunderCats marathon on July 16 and 17 along with airing the series every day at 5 p.m. starting Monday, July 18. For an official synopsis of the new Cartoon Network series, hit the jump.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Thunder, Thunder, ThunderCats! Ho!! On Third Earth, the kingdom of Thundera is being threatened by the evil sorcerer Mumm-Ra, and Lion-O, the young heir to the throne, embarks on a great quest to take his rightful place as king.  The unlikely champion must work with his faithful comrades Tygra, Cheetara, Panthro, WilyKit, WilyKat, and his loyal pet, Snarf, who join him on his journey to save their world from darkness. From Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), ThunderCats is executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, The Looney Tunes Show), with Michael Jelenic (Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Wonder Woman) and Ethan Spaulding (Avatar: The Last Airbender) producing.
