AMC is taking over Hall H this month with The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and Preacher. Check out the schedule of #AMCSDCC fan events (including the FTWD yacht)!
Here at We So Nerdy, we’re massive fans of The Walking Dead and every year we look forward to all the shenanigans and sneak peeks we get during Comic-Con.
Especially given the way Season 6 ended (Negan and Lucille are still giving me nightmares!), we’ll want to hear everything the cast can possibly tell us about the upcoming season.
It turns out that this year AMC plans to keep the good times rolling (or ambling)!
Yesterday the network announced their plans for SDCC 2016 and it includes our favorite zombie apocalypse survivors. The Walking Dead will return to Hall H, along with Fear the Walking Dead, and AMC’s latest comic book adaptation, Preacher. The network will also use this opportunity to give us a preview of Geeking Out, Kevin Smith’s upcoming late night talk show.
In addition to the panels, fans will get a chance to meet several cast members and creators up close during autograph signings.
AMC will also have a booth (#4237) in the Exhibit Hall, where fans will have a chance to take photos of themselves as a part of Negan’s lineup at the end of the Season 6 finale.
Finally, there will be a Fear the Walking Dead yacht, which will be used for the “Abigail experience” on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 9:00am – 9:00pm (free and open to all).
