Comic-Con 2016 has unveiled its full Sunday schedule, and with regards to the premiere location Hall H, things are mighty scarce. In fact, there are only three Hall H panels on Sunday, albeit the closing one includes a couple of different sections. Things kick off in the morning with Sherlock minus Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, although Amanda Abbington will be in attendance alongside showrunners Mark Gatiss and Stephen Moffat.
After Sherlock comes the annual Supernatural panel, and then things wrap up with a Fox “action block” touting the reboot series 24: Legacy and the limited series continuation of Prison Break. And that’s all she wrote for Hall H, though there are certainly some interesting smaller panels to be found.
Looking back, Saturday’s schedule is certainly the most eventful, with superhero offerings from Warner Bros. and Marvel as well as some nice reunion-centric panels for Aliens and Star Trek. The theme of 2016, however, is television, and indeed Comic-Con has become increasingly TV-centric over the last three years or so. Having attended the past four years in a row, I can attest that it’s the TV panels where fans really go wild, while studios trying to hype new films are more hit and miss—last year’s Warcraft and Pan panels were a swing and a miss, but Deadpool blew the roof off the place and I’ll always remember Guillermo del Toro’s spectacular panel for Pacific Rim.
Amanda Abbington (Mary Watson), Mark Gatiss (co-creator/executive producer/writer), Steven Moffat (co-creator/executive producer/writer), and Sue Vertue (producer) discuss the latest adventures of Sherlock Holmes and his long-suffering faithful friend, Dr. John Watson. Moderated by Chris Hardwick. Coming to PBS Masterpiece during the 2016-17 season.
