Comic-Con 2013: NBC Announces Full Panels, ‘Community’ Brings Back Dan Harmon!
As we draw closer to Comic-Con 2013, NBC has become the latest network to unveil its full slate of TV panels for the international pop-culture event in San Diego. Among the known presences of ‘Hannibal‘ and ‘Revolution,’ most exciting is the glorious return of ‘Community,’ led by its returning creator Dan Harmon!
The ‘Community’ season 5 panel will take place on Sunday, Jul. 21, and feature appearances from series stars Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong, along with returning executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna. If last year’s ‘Community’ panel carried with it diminished expectations, this year will no doubt prove one of the events of the convention.
Meanwhile, both the previously known ‘Hannibal’ panel and a look into James Spader drama ‘The Blacklist‘ will unfold on Thursday, Jul. 18; the ‘Blacklist’ panel to be attended by James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff and executive producers Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath and John Fox.
Fan-favorite ‘Grimm‘ will hold its annual panel on Saturday, Jul. 20 with a guest panel that includes David Giuntoli, Silas Weir Mitchell, Russell Hornsby, Reggie Lee, Sasha Roiz, Bitsie Tulloch, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee, and executive producers Todd Milliner, David Greenwalt, Jim Kouf and Norberto Barba. The panel will also host a special trailer for NBC’s upcoming horror-thriller, ‘Dracula.’
Finally, ‘Revolution’ will also power up its panel on Saturday, featuring executive producer Eric Kripke and other guests yet to be determined. ‘Ironside‘ star Blair Underwood and ‘SNL‘ vet Seth Meyers will make Comic-Con 2013 appearances as well, at the TV Guide Fan Faves panel on Jul. 19, and the Hulu panel on Sunday, Jul. 21, respectively.
We’ll definitely be on hand to check out the ‘Community’ panel, among others, but what say you? Are you excited to have Dan Harmon return to the throne, along with NBC’s other Comic-Con 2013 offerings? Tell us what you’re most excited to see in the comments!
