To the surprise of no one, HBO has officially announced that Game of Thrones will be returning to the San Diego Comic Con. The big news is the revelation that the panel will be held at the huge Hall H on Friday, July 13. No time was given, but an earlier report said 3 PM Pacific.
According to Lena Headey, both her and George R. R. Martin will be in attendance. Headey also let spill that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will not be coming this year. The full panel should be officially announced by HBO soon.
Winter Is Coming: Great news! Last year’s panel was held in the smaller Ballroom 20 and couldn’t fit everyone who wanted to get in, so hopefully this year more fans will get to see their favorite Thrones stars live in person. Apparently, it is rare for a TV show to snag Hall H, which is usually reserved for big blockbuster movies, so this gives a bit of bragging rights to the show and HBO. This is HBO’s first Hall H panel, as far as I can tell. Our intrepid Daily Raven host, Simone Boyce, will be covering the panel for WinterIsComing.net. Mark your calendars!
