Also on the 11th, NBC is bringing perennial fan favorite “Grimm” to the big show. Details follow.
NBC is coming to Comic-Con in full force with a slate of hugely popular shows and activities that will include panels and a take-over of Gaslamp Square featuring activations, giveaways, and a chance for lucky fans to win $1,000 in a daily scavenger hunt.
In addition, NBC is once again partnering with Comic-Con to bring fans the official Comic-Con App, which offers attendees and TV fanatics a comprehensive mobile companion to the conference, including a personalized schedule, interactive maps, panel details, and more. The app update will be available for download July 2nd on The App Store, or get it on Google Play.
