‘Glee’ Coming to Comic-Con 2012 After All…Yay…
Don’t stop believing, ‘Glee‘ fans! Initially fans of the FOX musical series were dismayed to learn that the New Directions wouldn’t be stopping by this year’s San Diego Comic-Con as in years prior, but now Gleeks can rest easy. ‘Glee’ will indeed hold a panel at this year’s con to preview the show’s fourth season, but who can we expect in attendance and how different will things be from last year?
TVLine has exclusively revealed that the cast of ‘Glee’ will indeed host a panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2012, in spite of earlier reports that the musical dramedy was to be left off of FOX’s summer plans.
Though it was earlier theorized that ‘Glee’ had abandoned its traditional Comic-Con appearance on account of the writers not having figured out exactly which stars would return in the fall, this year’s Comic-Con appearance will prove it’s most star-studded yet, bringing along series stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera. Also present will be series co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk to help preview the show’s fourth year. Says Falchuk:
The fans at Comic-Con were among the first to really get behind our show, and we’ve had such a great time returning there every summer.
This was the first year our cast has not gone out on tour, so Ryan and I thought we’d let them have some well-deserved time off. But everyone wanted to be there, so we couldn’t be happier that ‘Glee’ is returning to the convention where we feel it all started.
However, ‘Glee’s late decision to make an appearance at Comic-Con comes with a cost, as the series missed out on booking the convention’s largest venue in Hall H, or even a Sunday time slot. Instead, the panel will take place in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 14 at 6:00 p.m.
