Though Warner Brothers no longer has a whole network to call their own, they still produce some of the best shows on TV for other networks to air, and many of them are consistent con favorites. Thus they’re first out of the gate with announcing what shows will be at SDCC 2012.
Their roster this year includes returning favorites The Big Bang Theory, Fringe (going into its final season), Nikita, Person of Interest, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Childrens Hospital, DC Nation and MAD all getting panels. Fringe and Big Bang Theory are in Hall H for the first time (the biggest room at the convention center), and new shows 666 Park Avenue, Arrow, Cult, The Following, and Revolution will also be getting panels of their own, likely with screenings of their first episodes. This is really exciting news for any TV fans, especially those locked out of the massively popular Fringe or TBBT panels in the past, since they were always some of the most attended in Ballroom 20.
