AMC Announces SDCC Plans For ‘Walking Dead’ & ‘Preacher’



AMC is no stranger to San Diego Comic Con. The network has often brought shows like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead to center stage in Hall H. This year, The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead, Preacher and Geeking Out will all be featured during SDCC.

The Walking Dead panel will be moderated by Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick and is likely to feature a trailer for season seven. Along with new footage, the panel will feature a number of the cast members including; Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Michael Cudlitz, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Ross Marquand and Josh McDermitt. Also featured on the panel will be executive producer and showrunner, Scott M. Gimple, along with, Robert Kirkman. It’s also likely that a premiere date for season seven will be announced.

The Walking Dead panel will be happening on Friday, July 22, at 1 PM PT in Hall H and before that, Fear The Walking Dead will be taking the stage at 12PM.

Many fans are wondering if the season six cliffhanger will be addressed during the panel. The cliffhanger resulted in outcry on social media from many fans, but Norman Reedus, who portrays fan-favorite Daryl Dixon, thinks that the big reveal that everyone’s been waiting for is going to be well worth the excruciating wait.

Speaking with TVLine, Reedus teased how massive the premiere of the next season is going to be, in which the identity of Negan’s victim will finally be revealed:

“I will definitely 100-percent say that it’s well worth the wait. It’s large. It’s mind-blowing.”

Newly renewed Preacher willl also be heavily featured. The Preacher panel will feature Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti and Graham McTavish, along with executive producer Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Moderating the panel will be Kevin Smith. The Preacher event will kick off in Hall H from 6:30 PM PT to 8:30 PM PT on Friday, July 22.
