This just shows that you can't believe press releases. When FOX supposedly announced their full roster of TV shows planning panels at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, Glee wasn't on the list. But, as it turns out, Glee will be at Comic-Con this year!
As first reported by TVLine
, there will indeed be a Glee
panel at the San Diego Comic-Con 2012. And it's going to be a doozey. Check out other FOX shows going to Comic-Con here!
Confirmed participants in the Glee
Comic-Con panel include many of the show's biggest stars. Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Darren Criss (Blaine), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) and Naya Rivera (Santana) will all be in San Diego to celebrate the coming fourth season of the musical-comedy show. Glee
co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk will also be in attendance.
Why the last-minute (OK, maybe not "last-minute," but late anyway). TVLine quotes Brad Falchuk as saying: "The fans at Comic-Con were among the first to really get behind our show, and we've had such a great time returning there every summer. This was the first year our cast has not gone on tour, so Ryan [Murphy] and I thought we'd let them have some well-deserved time off. But everyone wanted to be there, so we couldn't be happier that **Glee is returning to the convention where we feel it all started."
But you may have to get in line early if you want to celebrate your Gleek-ness. Instead of the vast spaces of Hall H (where the Glee
panel was held last year), the show will have to pack its fans into the Indigo Room. It's still a big space, just not of Hall H proportions.
If your Comic-Con travel plans center around the presence of Glee
, you should shoot for Saturday. The Glee
Comic-Con panel will be on Saturday, July 14 at 6pm.Want more information on TV at Comic-Con? Click here for a partial schedule
