  1. BP says:

    Seems pretty lame this year.

  2. Britney says:

    I wanna go!!

  3. wonderweiss says:

    And for that picture I thank you :)

  4. Ally says:

    Sounds like so much fun! It would be a nice change from the snow and mosquitoes of Manitoba. I think I should inherit my mother’s penchant for lottery scratch tickets–that’s probably my only chance of getting to California.

  5. Shari says:

    REALLY hope Once Upon a Time does one!!!!

  6. Tausif Khan says:

    What about Grimm?

    • Kerry says:

      They are too. There’s been a contest on their FB saying the prize package includes attending their panel at SDCC.

  7. Mag says:

    I really hope Community goes to Comic Con this year too.

    • John says:

      I hope so too, if only to start assuaging some fan doubts. I have faith that the show can continue to be funny next season, even if it doesn’t climb back into avant-garde brilliance, and a cast/new EP appearance would be a good first step.

  8. Don’t watch any of these shows but it seems like a good line-up. Hoping to hear some of my favourite shows will be there when more studios release details!

  9. trev says:


  10. Last Comic Con for FRINGE ='(

  11. Tina says:

    It won’t be the same this year without Chuck:-(

  12. sarah says:

    I would love to be in San Diego!!!

  13. Elle says:

    Why’d you have to change the picture?

  14. Evyn says:

    The Supernatural panel looks really good!, can´t wait to hear what Jeremy Carver has planed for season 8!

  15. Gavin says:

    Jim Beaver at the Supernatural panel bodes well for Bobby in the next season YAY!

    • Evyn says:

      Not really :( Misha was at last years panel an look at what happened… But I do hope we get Bobby back next season!

      • Gavin says:

        I’m suspecting he will be around to guest star. He could be a full time player in Justified next year. I’m hoping he has time to guest. Misha did appear though! What I mean is it would be unusual for someone to appear if they are no longer affiliated with the show.

  16. heu says:

    Wish True Blood and some of my other favs would be there. Big bang is about the only one I am interested in other than a couple new ones.

  17. @28savagedays says:

    Yes! They are on the same days as last year. I can’t wait! I will be camping out for sure for these panels.

  18. missy says:


    • Lisa says:

      Hope there is no Castle panel this year. Can you imagine the embarrassing questions? It would be painful for all involved.

      I do however hope Nathan Fillion is there promoting something. He makes comic-con more fun.

      • Megan.N says:

        The only reason why i want there to be castle panel is because of the promo for season 5! Thats basically it :) And um how bout Stana, Jon and the others they are pretty cool too, not just Nathan!

      • martina says:

        Painful? I think it would be their best panel! There’s going to be A LOT of stuff in this fifth season, not just Caskett, but Castle’s father, Alexis going to college, the whole conspiration to kill Beckett and also Ryan & Esposito’s bromance.

        • Andrea says:

          Everything you said. I really hope there’s a Castle panel this year. Plus, a little Caskett teasing could be comical.

      • James says:

        I would love to see Stana Katic at Comic Con

  19. ANNA says:


  20. martina says:

    I live in South America, so I really hope they live stream the panels!

  21. Stephanie says:


  22. Eric says:

    I was a little bummed I only got Thursday and Sunday passes this year, but I am not now. Supernatural and Fringe both on Sunday!! Hell yes!! I am a happy guy. A little bittersweet since this will be the last Fringe panel, but happy that I am going to get to be there.

  23. Mia says:

    REVOLUTION !!!! YES!!!
    And POI.

  24. Anna Torv + Joshua Jackson + John Noble = Fringe Family :)

  25. va says:

    Any news about MERLIN??

  26. Mickey says:

    No Game of Thrones panel?

  27. ninamags says:

    “Recurring guest-stars….” that, there, is music to my ears.

    Love Mark and Jim.

  28. Mick says:

    This could be good for the CW if the pilots for Arrow and Cult are good. Word of mouth could generate some good buzz.

  29. Megan says:

    Kurt Sutter also confirmed Son of Anarchy would be there as well. Waiting for schedule announcement….

  30. Alan says:

    SDCC 2012 coverage starting to heat-up! Looking forward to more posts.

  31. Castlefan24 says:

    anybody know if Castle will be there?

  32. Betsy says:

    I want a Bones panel again!

    • Alex says:

      Me too…though by the way they ended the season, I bet they’re going to try to avoid any spoiler answers, lol

      • Wendy says:

        One can always hope, though! Which is why I also hope there will be a “Bones” panel (especially since it was cancelled last year to catch up fast with taping due to ED’s pregnancy). Even if I won’t be in San Diego. I can read any scoop here.

  33. Dragonfly says:

    Castle and Fringe that is what I want – anybody knows if it will be streamed on YouTube? I would love to be in San Diego

  34. Bob Jones says:

    I Want a Revolution (on NBC)

  35. Carmen says:

    I so wish I had gotten a badge this year! The entire SoA cast is going!

  36. Larry says:

    I probably will follow some of the news off Comic-con but TBH, now that Glee is off the table for the show -I’m just not as interested as I’ve been the past two years. It’s just lost it’s luster for me.

  37. Wendy says:

    I’m prettyyy sure the GoT panel will be on Thursday :)

  38. Sandy Holl says:

    I want to see theBones’ panel so bad,I wish I had the money to fly there and get tickets,but I don”t unfortunately!!! I wonder ,Will it be televised at all?

  39. anonces says:

    Where the fu@#@#$%$ is CASTLE???

  40. abby says:


  41. corey says:

    Settle down people, a lot of studios haven’t announced their pannels yet.

  42. Raven says:

    Just because stars aren’t announced doesn’t mean they can’t show up. That’s happened a lot

  43. MysteryObsessed says:

    WTF??????? It looks like Castle is not invited… WTF????? WHat else can the fandom do these days?? The show got ratings, 1000 of tumblrs, owins almost every fan poll and still stupid ABC Studio screws with us? WTF???

  44. nanc99 says:

    It will also be interesting to see what shows USA network sends.

  45. Marsia says:

    The interactive screening of the Buffy Musical “Once More With Feeling” will be Sunday 3:30pm Rm 6bcf and hosting for the 5th year

  46. Nabil Mazidi says:

    Dear Team TV Line

    Will Once Upon a Time have a panel at Comic Con?

  47. Gabriela says:

    No Castle?
    Well…nothing to do here…

  48. Chyon says:

    I am from Australia and will be traveling all the way to Comic Con just to see the Castle panel I will be absolutely devastated if Castle won’t be there devastated. I was so looking forward to seeing them all it would like a dream come true if there not there then I have not so much wasted a week because I am still lookIng forward to other things and the experience because it will be my first comic con but I will not be as excited as if they would be going.

  49. TJCrinc says:

    im still hoping abc changes their mind about sending castle to comic-con.
