MTV Announces SDCC 2013 Panels and Events [UPDATE]

Teen WolfMTV has announced its panel and event lineup for Comic-Con 2013, via EW.com.

We had previously known that Teen Wolf would be returning to SDCC this year, but we now have the official confirmation from MTV along with panel details. The panel will be held on Thursday, July 18, and among the panel guests are stars Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin and executive producer Jeff Davis. No time or room details were included in the announcement.

Also note the inclusion of O’Brien as a panel guest makes it likely he will also make a panel appearance for The Maze Runner as well.

New this year will be MTV2′s “Party in the Park”, an offsite event for all attendees on July 18 at 7PM which will include live musical performances, free food and drink, and MTV will be providing continuous streaming coverage from Comic-Con throughout the weekend.

[UPDATE] We just received the official press release with information on MTV’s streaming coverage and more details on the “Party in the Park” event.
