Supernatural and sci-fi series are going to storm out to San Diego Comic Con 2011 on Friday, July 22. AMC's sophomore "The Walking Dead" will have a panel at 11:15 A.M with stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal and Sarah Wayne Callies among the panelists, while HBO will present "True Blood" panel at 5:30 P.M. in which Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Sam Trammell are scheduled to attend.
For sci-fi geeks, a panel for SyFy's "Eureka", "Warehouse 13" and "Alphas", as well as TNT's "Falling Skies" should not be missed. "Lost", which has taken a final bow last year, will still be discussed at the convention through a panel presented by Entertainment Weekly. Special guests are promised to show up at the event.
Giving more alternatives, "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS), "Spartacus: Vengeance" (Starz), "NCIS: Los Angeles" (NBC) and "Bones" (FOX) are among the line-up for Friday's TV events. Additionally, FOX is going to present pilot screening of "Locke & Key" which was not picked up for series.
