Comic-Con 2013: ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 4 Unveils Full Panel Plans
Earlier today, we saw the release of some seriously badass banner art for ‘The Walking Dead‘ season 4 from Comic-Con 2013, but only now have we learned the AMC horror drama’s full presentation plans for the international pop-culture event. New showrunner Scott M. Gimple (replacing Glen Mazzara) won’t lead the proceedings, but who from the cast will be on hand to preview the new season?
According to Deadline, ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4 panel will shamble out on Friday, Jul. 19 (very likely in Hall H), and feature appearances from series stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, David Morrissey, Chad Coleman and Scott Wilson, along with executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman, David Alpert and executive producer/special effects and makeup guru Greg Nicotero.
As with previous years, we’d expect to see a ‘Walking Dead’ season 4 trailer unveiled, and plenty of fangirl screams for Norman Reedus. You’ll also note the varied lineup of stars for the panel this year, considering at least two of the previous year’s attendees had rather bloody ends over the course of season 3. But, hey, maybe Andrew Lincoln could scream at Sarah Wayne Callies in a white dress just offstage!
While we wait for season 4, the next run of ‘The Walking Dead’ will introduce ‘The Wire’ star Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. as haunted army medic Bob Stookey, while actors Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney have all been upgraded to series regulars. AMC earlier confirmed that David Morrissey’s villainous Governor would also return in season 4 as a series regular.
We’ll be on hand to see what the cast reveals, so, in the meantime, check out the latest production diary from ‘The Walking Dead’ season 4, and give us your predictions for the Comic-Con 2013 panel in the comments!
