HBO is bringing Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Cinemax’s Banshee to San Diego Comic Con this year. If Friday and Saturday rolls around and you find yourself unable to be in the panel rooms for these shows, don’t worry! HBO will be hosting live coverage on HBO Connect (hbo.com/connect) and through the hashtags for True Blood (#TrueToTheEnd), Game of Thrones (#SurviveTheRealm), and Banshee (#SDCCBanshee).
This is awesome seeing as Game of Thrones is once again in Hall H on Friday, July 25th, and for those people in line who fear they might not make it in, they will still have live coverage to keep up with what is going on in the hall with their friends in line. HBO’s plan for Game of Thrones is as follows:
The GAME OF THRONES panel in Hall H at 1:40 p.m. will be moderated by Craig Ferguson. The panel will include: David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, executive producers, writers and showrunners of GAME OF THRONES, and George R.R. Martin, co-executive producer and author of the bestselling fantasy book series “A Song of Ice and Fire,” on which the HBO drama is based. Cast members scheduled to attend (in alphabetical order): John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane), Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). Autograph signing is at the WB booth at 3:30 p.m.
True Blood fans should keep an eye out for the panel in Ballroom 20 on Saturday, July 26th. Closing up their final season of the series means that this is going to be a panel you can’t miss if you’re #TrueToTheEnd (see what I did there?).
The TRUE BLOOD panel in Ballroom 20 at 5:00 p.m. will be moderated by Tim Stack of Entertainment Weekly. Panelists include: executive producer Brian Buckner and cast members (in alphabetical order) Chris Bauer (Andy Bellefleur), Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam Swynford de Beaufort), Anna Camp (Sarah Newlin), Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynolds), Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton), Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse), Nathan Parsons (James), Carrie Preston (Arlene Bellefleur), Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton) and Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby). Autograph signing is at the WB booth at 2:00 p.m.
Fans looking for some prime merchandise from HBO can visit the HBO Pop Up Shop at Market St and 8th Ave, open on Thursday (10am-6pm), Friday (10am-6pm), Saturday (11am-7pm), and Sunday (9am-3pm).
We’re looking forward to seeing you guys there at SDCC, and definitely looking forward to HBO’s
