AMC provided details for The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead’s panels at San Diego Comic-Con, including cast members in attendance.

The Walking Dead once again invades San Diego Comic-Con 2018 with panels in Hall H on Friday, July 20. Lucky fans who manage to make it inside the 6500-seat room will be able to see members of the cast and crew from The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead along with new trailers from both shows. Yvette Nicole Brown will moderate both of the panels this year.

Fear the Walking Dead kicks things off from 11:15-12:15pm. This year, fans will have a chance to see Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Lennie James, Maggie Grace, Garret Dillahunt and Jenna Elfman, and word on the street is that Kim Dickens will also make an appearance. The crew in attendance include showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, Scott M. Gimple, Gale Anne Hurd, Robert Kirkman, Greg Nicotero and Dave Alpert.

Immediately following the Fear panel is The Walking Dead panel from 12:15-1:15pm. Andrew Lincoln, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus and Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be in attendance, along with new showrunner Angela Kang. Gimple, Kirkman, Hurd Alpert and Nicotero will be there as well.

It’s a notably smaller group of cast members from The Walking Dead, which is a good thing considering that the panel only lasts an hour. While big panels are nice, it’s hard to hear from everyone on the panel inside of an hour that includes introductions, applause breaks, trailers and audience questions.

With Game of Thrones on ice this year at San Diego Comic-Con, The Walking Dead owns Hall H on Friday. Expect to see excited fans lining up overnight to ensure entry into Hall H on Friday morning so as to not miss all of the excitement. (By way of explanation, Hall H doesn’t clear out after each panel, so the only way to guarantee a spot inside for one of the afternoon panels is to be inside first thing in the morning, hence camping overnight, and stay there until the panels are over)
