Although San Diego Comic-Con International hasn’t posted its programming list for this year’s convention, production companies and publishers are now locking in panels and notifying Accredited Comic-Con press badge holders (including borg.com writers Jason McClain and C.J. Bunce). The Discovery Communications channel Science just announced that it will reunite the cast of Firefly for the TV series 10th anniversary, which should be a pretty successful panel. Some of the actors for the series appeared in San Diego last year at the Nerd HQ event hosted by Zachary Levi in the Gaslight District (we’ll release more information on this year’s Nerd HQ line-up as information becomes available).
The Firefly reunion event will take place Friday July 13, 2012 at 12:30 p.m.–1:30 p.m. in Room 20.
Series creator, executive producer and writer Joss Whedon is scheduled to appear along with executive producer and writer Tim Minear and cast members Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, Michael Fairman and other actors yet to be announced.
Science also announced that Fringe, Dark Matters, and Lord of the Rings actor John Noble will be signing autographs at the Con on Saturday, July 15, 2012, between 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. Noble will also be on a panel hosted by Warner Brothers on Sunday July 15. Every Fringe event last year had a huge following, so plan to line-up early if you want to see any of the above events.
