In Panel & Autograph News by Kerry Dixon2 Comments

CBS-LogoAlthough they won’t have a booth this year, CBS is still heading out to Comic-Con with three series. The studio is bringing back Under the Dome, as well as San Diego Comic-Con newcomers Scorpion and Reign, for a three hour extravaganza in Ballroom 20 on Thursday morning starting at 11:15AM.

Under the Dome debuted at Comic-Con last year, but the series is getting an upgrade, all the way to Ballroom 20 on Thursday. Most of the cast, which includes Mike Vogel, Dean Norris, Rachelle Lefevre, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford, and Eddie Cahill, will in attendance again for an exclusive sneak preview of the upcoming second season.

Following Under the Dome will be an exclusive premiere and screening of the new series Scorpion, which we predicted might be showing up this year. Following the screening of the full-length pilot, stars Elyes Gabel, Robert Patrick, Katherine McPhonee, and producers of the series (including Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci) will take to the stage to answer a few quick questions.

Finishing up CBS’ panel block on Thursday is Reign, which only got a short rizzle reel shown at the CBS panel block in 2013. This year, the show will be out in full force, with star Adelaide Kane and co-stars Megan Follows and Toby Regbo heading onstage with Executive Producer Laurie McCarthy for a panel and exclusive sneak preview before the series returns for its second season this fall.

As we reported earlier this year, Beauty & The Beast will be skipping Comic-Con this year.

From their press release, here’s the full schedule:

CBS Television Studios will introduce a team of brilliant misfits, let a few Chester’s Mill-ers out of the Dome and make way for a royal arrival with back-to-back panels at Comic-Con 2014 on Thursday, July 24 (11:15 AM-2:00 PM) in Ballroom 20. The events of the day will include an exclusive premiere screening of the highly anticipated new CBS series SCORPION, a special sneak peek of the global hit series UNDER THE DOME and a glimpse of what’s ahead for fan-favorite drama REIGN. Additionally, don’t miss the debut of superhero-inspired SCORPION art created exclusively for Comic-Con.
