The madness that is San Diego Comic-Con is nearly upon us.
In just a few short weeks, the biggest pop-culture event of the year will explode with goodies and bits of news from the worlds of film, TV, comics, toys, games and more, and we're finally getting a glimpse at how the schedule is shaping up. Details of the con's TV panels and events (including sneak peeks at a few promising new genre shows) are hitting the 'net, and we've got them all right here.
Keep in mind, though, that this list isn't complete just yet. Details are still coming together for many of these panels, including exact times and locations, and we haven't even heard about all the shows yet. But if you're planning to head out to San Diego to catch a can't-miss panel for your favorite genre series, this'll definitely help you start marking the calendar. Here's what we know so far about the con's TV events.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 17
The con's preview night is always a hot spot for TV, and this year is no different. Warner Bros. has already announced pilot screenings for its new genre shows The 100, The Tomorrow People, Almost Human and Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, which will include some special extra footage.
THURSDAY, JULY 18
If you're a full-on fannibal, set your watch for 6:45 p.m. on this day. That's when showrunner Bryan Fuller, star Hugh Dancy and executive producers David Slade and Martha De Laurentiis will gather for the Hannibal panel. Also on this day so far: events for Starz's Treasure Island prequel Black Sails and Cartoon Network's wild sketch series MAD.
FRIDAY, JULY 19
Even more genre TV events will hit the con, including panels for new series The 100, Almost Human, Sleepy Hollow and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (featuring series creator Joss Whedon), and returning series The Big Bang Theory, The Following and Nikita.
SATURDAY, JULY 20
What's probably the con's biggest day is also its biggest for TV events so far. Look out for panels featuring new shows The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, along with returning favorites like Arrow, Futurama, Once Upon a Time, Person of Interest, The Simpsons, Revolution and The Vampire Diaries.
SUNDAY, JULY 21
If you're still around for the con's final day, check out panels for Cartoon Network's new series Beware the Batman, along with events for Teen Titans Go! and Supernatural.
Like we said before, there's still a lot of stuff to be announced before the con, so we'll keep you updated as we get more info on all the biggest genre show events at San Diego this year.
