HBO Announces San Diego Comic-Con Panels for ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Westworld’

In Panel & Autograph News by Kerry Dixon5 Comments

Pack your bags, because this July, you’ll be heading to both Westeros and Westworld.

For the first time since True Blood was still on the air, HBO is bringing two panels to the convention this year – Game of Thrones and Westworld. Both series will be taking to the Hall H stage, though on different days, with Game of Thrones set for Friday at 1:30PM with cast members Alfie Allen, Jacob Anderson, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Conleth Hill, and Sophie Turner.

For Westworld, the series will be heading to Hall H on Saturday, July 22 at 4:15PM. Attendees will be treated to the first panel for the series with cast members Ben Barnes, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Ed Harris, Luke Hemsworth, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Simon Quarterman, Rodrigo Santoro, Angela Sarafyan, Jimmi Simpson, Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wood, Shannon Woodward, and Jeffrey Wright.

This will mark the first time that Game of Thrones will be at San Diego while the series is actually airing on TV – which means it could be poised to show new footage, a new episode, or any number of special surprises for the con.

There will also be an autograph signing for Game of Thrones on Friday at 3:30PM and for Westworld on Saturday at 5:45PM –  at the WB booth, where they’ve been held in the past.

Here’s a look at the schedule:
