Comic-Con 2017: Big Bang Theory Cast's Return, Krypton, Black Lightning and Westworld Fill WBTV's Slate

Warner Bros. TV has unveiled its Comic-Con 2017 slate, which will feature the first Big Bang Theory cast panel in five years.

Ahead of Season 11, cast members Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar, Mayim Bialik and Kevin Sussman will be on hand for a Q&A, following four consecutive years of writers’ room panels. (At this time, Jim Parsons, Simon Helberg and Melissa Rauch are not scheduled to appear.)

Other series returning to the pop culture extravaganza include The 100, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Gotham, iZombie, Lucifer, The Originals, Riverdale, Supergirl and Supernatural. (Watch the “paw”-some video announcement embedded below; that was WBTV’s pun FYI.) Newcomers include The CW’s latest superhero effort Black Lightning, Syfy’s Superman prequel Krypton and HBO’s Westworld.

    What about Tom Felton for The Flash?

  2. katlynneylon says:

    I really hope Floriana Lima is included in the Supergirl panel. Obviously, also Chyler, Melissa, Mechad, Jeremy, David…maybe Chris? But I think it will calm some fans minds/hearts if they include Floriana. Just saying… :) If Tyler got to be included last year, she should get to be included this year.

    So no cast list for SPN yet–is Misha going to be there with Cas’s so called “death.”

  4. No The Walking Dead panel this year? I know Game of Thrones probably don’t have a panel this eyar because season 7 only starts this month..this year, i will miss the most the Teen Wolf panel..And glad to see TBBT back.

    • Whatever says:

      TWD is not WBTV. GoT is HBO. Each tv studios make their own official ComicCon lineup announcement separately.

    Seems like Black Lightning is getting the short shift. All the other DC CW shows get 40 minutes but Black Lightning only gets 20 minutes 4:50PM to 5:10 PM when The Flash panel begins.
