First Word on The Walking Dead Panel at New York Comic Con 2012
So far this year's New York Comic Con is pretty light on the horror offerings, but considering they just added a panel for "The Walking Dead," we're pretty sure more is coming. We hope so anyway!
From the Press Release:
New York Comic Con (NYCC) officials have confirmed that a high profile panel focusing on Season 3 of AMC’s hit television series "The Walking Dead" will take place at this year’s pop culture extravaganza. Cast members including series star Andrew Lincoln will be joined by showrunner and executive producer Glenn Mazzara as well as executive producers Robert Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd. Moderated by "Talking Dead" host Chris Hardwick, "The Walking Dead" panel, which will take place in the IGN Theater on Saturday, October 13th (the day before the Season 3 premiere), from 5:00 pm-6:00 pm, will include an exclusive clip from the premiere episode.
In addition to Andrew Lincoln, additional cast members participating in the panel include Norman Reedus, Chandler Riggs, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey, and Michael Rooker. There will also be a limited signing for 50 fans, and tickets for the signing will be given away on a first-come/first-served basis on Saturday morning (10/13). Further details about the signing will be announced soon.
New York Comic Con, which will take place October 11th-14th, 2012, at NYC's Javits Center, is one of New York’s largest annual events, last year attracting over 100,000 attendees. The pop culture convention draws a wide cross section of fans eager to meet and greet the creators, actors, writers, musicians and artists. The show includes top talent from the worlds of comics, film, television, music, books and gaming.
“'The Walking Dead' is a huge attraction for our fans, and I am enormously grateful to AMC for making this possible,” notes Lance Fensterman Show Manager for NYCC and Group Vice President for ReedPOP. “This is a star-studded line up of panelists, and I know that we will have thousands of fans who will want to be on hand to hear these creators, producers, and stars talk about their contribution to this incredible show. I can’t thank these guests enough for giving their time and talent to New York Comic Con.”
