On Monday, Warner Bros. TV announced its Comic-Con 2018 slate — and some especially big news for Riverdale: When the cast and producers return for their third consecutive Con, their panel will be held in massive Hall H. (File under: You know you’ve made it when… )

Among the other series heading back to the pop-culture-palooza are Arrow, Black Lightning, Supernatural and The Big Bang Theory (though the CBS comedy isn’t sending its actors this year, just its writers and EPs). New to Comic-Con are the Originals spinoff Legacies and J.J. Abrams’ and Stephen King’s Castle Rock.

Check out WBTV’s full lineup below:*


The studio’s annual Preview Night will feature screenings of the pilot for NBC’s plane-crash mystery Manifest (starring Once Upon a Time alum Josh Dallas), the following week’s episode of The 100, and new episodes of Freedom Fighters: The Ray (which will stream on CW Seed later that day).
