Nerd HQ Announces Second Wave of ‘Conversations for a Cause’ [UPDATED 3 – Riddick Panel!]

Zachary Levi of Nerd HQAs promised, Nerd HQ has announced even more of their ‘Conversations For A Cause’ – the intimate-setting panels that will be taking place at Petco Park. Tickets are $22 each, and all 250 seats are assigned. Best of all, no badge required!

Although most of the panels from the first round sold out, a handful still have tickets remaining, including 300: Rise of an Empire and Thrilling Adventure Hour.

The new panels include a screening for Serenity with Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk and “friends”, as well as panels for Hannibal, Kickass 2, Childrens Hospital, Seth Green & Stoopid Buddy, Evangeline Lilly, and previously announced panels for Nathan Fillion (with two panels!), Jared Padalecki and Zac Levi – now stretching the programming into Sunday.

The Nerd Machine also announced via Twitter that while tickets will not go on sale today, they will go on sale “soon”.

[UPDATE 1], the website where the Nerd HQ tickets have been sold through this year, has posted that at least two of the panels will go on sale tomorrow, 7/17/2013, at 12PM PT. The two new panel additions currently listed on their site include Evangeline Lily’s panel (including a signing) for Saturday, as well as a panel at 12:45PM not previously reported, Tiny Commando, with Ed Helms, Gillian Jacobs, Zac Levi, and director Ryan McFaul listed as panelists.

It’s possible ticket sales will be staggered throughout the next two days as in previous years, but we’ll keep you posted.
