Starting tomorrow, if tradition holds and we’re in luck, we’ll start getting the official-from-Comic-Con schedule for the four-and-a-half day holiday/summer camp/fanpalooza that is to come. Until then, we know some panel information, including the fact that the panel for The Walking Dead will take place on Friday of the Con.
AMC has also revealed The Walking Dead 2013 Comic-Con banner:
And to get us back into the mindset of zombified Georgia, AMC is hosting a marathon of The Walking Dead starting this Thursday and hosted by Kevin Smith, which will feature some behind-the-scenes footage and interviews from the upcoming season. Here are the details:
Starting Thu., Jul. 4 at 1PM/12c AMC invites viewers to tune-in to “The Walking Dead Season 4 Preview Weekend” and catch up on the series that has been hailed by USA Today as “one of the season’s best series,” and reigns as the number one show in delivery for adults 18-49. The Walking Dead marathon will be hosted by Comic Book Men executive producer Kevin Smith from the Atlanta-based set where the cast are currently filming Season 4 of the hit series. Smith talks to the cast and crew and shares behind-the-scenes footage from the highly anticipated upcoming fourth season. The first season of The Walking Dead airs twice on Jul. 4, featuring marathons of both the original and special black-and-white editions. These are followed by Season 2 on Fri., and Season 3 on both Satu. and Sun. Each day of this four-day event begins at 1PM/12c. (However, the black-and-white editions only apply to Season 1 on Jul. 4).
The Walking Dead returns this October with brand new episodes. Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead tells the story of a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home in the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. The series stars Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney.
Excellent, we won’t have to go outside on the Fourth! We can stay safely inside and watch the rest of the world, or at least parts of Georgia, being ravaged by the undead! And keep an eye here at SciFiMafia.com for (hopefully) a new Season 4 trailer starting July 19, after the Comic-Con panel…
The Walking Dead, starring Andrew Lincoln, David Morrissey, Steven Yeun, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Chandler Riggs, Lauren Cohan, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green and Emily Kinney, airs its Season 4 Preview Weekend on July 4 – 7 beginning at 1pm each day on AMC.
The Walking Dead Season 4 premieres in October on AMC.
