Comic-Con 2016: ‘Game of Thrones’ S7 and More, But No ‘Westworld’
Game of Thrones keeps historically vague through San Diego appearances, but will Comic-Con 2016 break the mold? Fresh off Season 6, the HBO drama sets its official Comic-Con 2016 panel plans, joining others like Silicon Valley, Vice Principals and Cinemax’s Outcast, but where’s Westworld in all of this?
Per the network’s official confirmation, only Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and Vice Principals will put in panel appearances this year, though Cinemax’s Outcast will also make a San Diego return. See the full details below:

Why HBO wouldn’t choose to allay any further concerns on Westworld is beyond us, though at the very least, we might get an official premiere. In the meantime, stay tuned for all the latest Comic-Con 2016 details, and we’ll see you in San Diego!
