Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman may likely not join series co-creator Steven Moffat at the 'Sherlock' panel but there will be 'surprises.'
"Sherlock" is making its first visit to San Diego Comic-Con. PBS is going to bring the British crime drama series to the annual convention, also marking the first time PBS holds a panel at the event which started in 1970.
Creators/executive producers/writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are scheduled to be the panelists along with producer Sue Vertue. Lead actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman may not be able to attend the panel due to other work commitments but there will be "surprises."
The "Sherlock" panel will surely be the right place to get answers to last season's cliffhanger before the third season airs on PBS in 2014. More details, including place and time, will be revealed later.
This year's Comic-Con will also be a place to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "The X-Files" with a reunion panel set to take place Thursday, July 18. Star David Duchovny is confirmed to join Gillian Anderson and series creator Chris Carter, as well as writer/producers David Amann, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban and Jim Wong at the panel.
Comic-Con will unveil the official line-up starting Thursday, July 4. The convention itself runs July 18-21.
