Comic-Con may not be coming for another week-and-a-half, but it’s already time to peek ahead at the ending! Comic-Con International has released the full programming schedule for Sunday, July 24; the final day of the convention. And it’s a decidedly laid back slate compared to the insanity of Friday and Saturday!
Take for example, Hall H; the largest room at the San Diego Convention Center and the home of Comic-Con’s hottest panels. On Sunday, there will be only three panels in Hall H. Can you believe it? But they are a pretty terrific trio!
- 10:00am | Sherlock
- 11:15am | Supernatural Special Video Presentation and Q&A
- 12:30pm | FOX’s Action Showcase: Prison Break and 24: Legacy
Sherlock is kicking off the final day in Hall H with series creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, with producer Sue Vertue, and actress Amanda Abbington (she plays Mary Watson on the show). Sadly, it’s very unlikely that Benedict Cumberbatch or Martin Freeman will appear in person. But if this Sherlock panel plays out like the last one at SDCC, then both Cumberbatch and Freeman will have some recorded messages for the fans. Although we’d certainly love it if they made surprise appearances to talk about the upcoming fourth season.
At 11:45am, all of the main players from Supernatural will be checking in at Hall H, with series stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins , and Mark A. Sheppard appearing alongside producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb. They’ll be talking about season 12, and they may even bring some footage from the next adventure of the Winchester brothers.
The final panel in Hall H at 12:30 is the double header of Fox revival shows: Prison Break and 24: Legacy. Original Prison Break stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, and Robert Knepper will debut new videos from the new miniseries and take questions from fans alongside producer Vaun Wilmott. Then the new stars of 24: Legacy, Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto, and Jimmy Smits will join the returning creative team of Howard Gordon, Manny Coto, and Evan Katz for the first look at what life after Jack Bauer looks like for the world of 24.
Ballroom 20 will go dark for the final day of Comic-Con, but there are still some panels that we’re very excited about. At 11:15am in Room 6DE, Warner Bros. Interactive is going to run the LEGO Dimensions panel, which may be the stage for a few announcements about new characters and content heading to the game. The guests for this panel will include the game’s creative team, and a few unannounced voice actors who reprised their roles for LEGO Dimensions.
Remember that story about James T. Kirk fighting Jesus Christ in Gene Roddenberry’s original Star Trek movie pitch? There’s a lot more where that came from in Room 25ABC at 1pm, as Mark A. Altman and Edward Gross hold court at “The 50-Year Mission: Star Trek Then, Now, and Beyond” panel. Altman and Gross are long time Trek fans and historians who will be sharing stories from their new two-part book, The 50 Year Mission: The Complete, Uncensored and Unauthorized Oral History of Star Trek.
At 2pm, Comic-Con is celebrating the 20th anniversary of DC Comics’ Birds of Prey in Room 28DE with series creator Chuck Dixon, Gail Simone, Shawna and Julie Benson, and Jordan B. Gorfinkel as they look back at the comic series that started it all, the short-lived live-action series, and even the animated appearances of the group!
Also at 2pm, John Barrowman’s spotlight panel “Anything Goes with John Barrowman” will take place in Room 6BCF. Let’s just say that Barrowman’s appearances live up to that title, and he’ll be telling fans all about the new deal that lets him appear on every DC show that is currently on The CW!
Room 6DE should draw a crowd at 3pm, as Animaniacs Live! will be performed by returning voice actors Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille and Jess Harnell as they sing a few of the songs from the classic animated series alongside series songwriter Randy Rogel. And if you want more singing, there’s no better way to close out Comic-Con than the traditional Buffy the Musical sing-along at 3:15pm in Room 6BCF. This is the annual event held at SDCC by Whedonopolis WhedonCon, and FandomCharities, with Drusilla herself, Juliet Landau making an appearance alongside a surprise guest.
