AMC confirmed the network’s San Diego Comic-Con plans this week, and there are plenty of panels to choose from this year. The cast and producers from AMC’s top scripted series “The Walking Dead,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” and “Preacher” will return to this year, along with the new supernatural horror series “NOS4A2” and the Ridley Scott-produced anthology series “The Terror: Infamy.”
Outside of the panels and special screenings, AMC is hosting the “DeadQuarters” fan zone, and the network will offer demos for the upcoming VR game “The Walking Dead Onslaught,” among other gaming activities.
The big “Fear the Walking Dead” panel is on July 19th in Hall H. Panelists for the event include cast members Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Danay Garcia, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Austin Amelio, Rubén Blades and Karen David. They will be joined by chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunners and executive producers Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, executive producers Robert Kirkman, Dave Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero, and director and co-executive producer, Michael Satrazemis. The panel will be moderated by “Talking Dead” host Chris Hardwick.
Immediately following that event is “The Walking Dead” panel, also located in the great Hall H. Cast members Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Danai Gurira, Ryan Hurst, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Avi Nash, Nadia Hilker, Eleanor Matsuura, and Cailey Fleming are joining the event. They are joined by Scott M. Gimple, showrunner and executive producer Angela Kang, executive producers Robert Kirkman, Dave Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero. Chris Hardwick is also hosting this panel. Earlier this week it was confirmed that “The Walking Dead” comic series is ending, and fans can read the closing chapter of the story.
Fans of “Preacher” will want to watch for the panel on July 19th later that night in Hall H. The panelist include executive producer Seth Rogen and cast members Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Graham McTavish, and Mark Harelik. The panel will be moderated by IGN’s Terri Schwartz. “Preacher” is coming to an end, so this should be a big celebration for the series.
A first for Comic-Con, “The Terror: Infamy” is hosting a panel on July 19th. Cast members Derek Mio, George Takei, Kiki Sukezane, and Cristina Rodlo are attending the panel to discuss the new season with fans. Other panelists include co-creators and executive producers Alexander Woo and Max Borenstein. The panel will be moderated by Indiewire senior editor Hanh Nguyen.
Another first is the “NOS4A2” panel, which takes place on July 20th. The panelists include cast members Zachary Quinto and Ashleigh Cummings, along with showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien, and author and executive producer Joe Hill. The panel will be moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s Clark Collis.
If you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con with us, and don’t make it into the panels, you can head over to the “DeadQuarters,” the official fan zone of “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” The special event features a curated walk through of settings from both series, including the Winter Escape from the Season 9 finale of “TWD,” as well as an elaborate treehouse and plane crash site inspired by the Season 5 storylines in “Fear.” AMC is partnering with Feeding America and encouraging “DeadQuarters” visitors to donate canned foods throughout Comic-Con weekend to benefit the organization’s local chapter, Feeding San Diego. Donors will receive an exclusive Hilltop Token, which can be used to unlock special deals on food, retail and entertainment around San Diego.
The network is inviting “The Walking Dead” fans to dress as walkers for an official Walker Hordemoment at Petco Park on Saturday, July 20th with doors opening at 9 am. Attendees will help recreate a walker scene for a photo that will be part of an official marketing campaign for “TWD’s” milestone 10thseason. Fans can register amc.com/horde.
As we mentioned earlier, AMC is also promoting the VR game “The Walking Dead Onslaught.” AMC and gaming studio Survios will host demos at “DeadQuarters” to give Comic-Con attendees an opportunity to step into the shoes of their favorite survivors and get an exclusive sneak peek of the game.
If you’re new to “The Terror” franchise, the new installment is set during World War II. The story centers on a series of bizarre deaths that haunt a Japanese-American community, and a young man’s journey to understand and combat the malevolent entity responsible. Season two is co-created and executive produced by showrunner Alexander Woo (“True Blood”) and Max Borenstein (“Kong: Skull Island,” “Godzilla”). The series stars renowned actor, producer, author and activist George Takei, Derek Mio, Kiki Sukezane, Miki Ishikawa, Shingo Usami, and Naoko Mori.
“NOS4A2” is the network’s new supernatural horror series based on Joe Hill’s 2013 best-selling novel of the same name. The series stars Emmy-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto, Ashleigh Cummings, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Virginia Kull, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Jahkara Smith.
“NOS4A2” introduces Vic McQueen (Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims – without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
