Reports of a Glee-less Comic-Con have been greatly exaggerated.
In a late development that is sure to have Gleeks frantically scouring the Interwebs for last-minute travel deals to San Diego, Glee is not only returning to Comic-Con next month but it will do so with one of its most star-studded panels in years.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera are confirmed to headline the panel, which is set to take place in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 14 from 6 to 7 pm PST. (The 11th hour decision to bring Glee to the Con prevented the show from securing the ginormous Hall H, which is where the panel was held last year.)
Additionally, Glee co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk will be on hand to preview the show’s fourth season.
Oh, and yours truly will once again be moderating, so you can probably count on a healthy supply of spoilers.
“The fans at Comic-Con were among the first to really get behind our show, and we’ve had such a great time returning there every summer,” says Falchuk. “This was the first year our cast has not gone out on tour, so Ryan and I thought we’d let them have some well-deserved time off. But everyone wanted to be there, so we couldn’t be happier that Glee is returning to the convention where we feel it all started.”
Thoughts? Are you more inclined to hit up the Con now that Glee will be there? And should we glean any Season 4 clues from who will and will not be in attendance? Hit the comments!Follow @MichaelAusiello
