SDCC: Arrow, The Scorch Trials, Sherlock, and More Are Headed to Nerd HQ

Nerd HQ tickets have become almost as coveted as those for San Diego Comic-Con itself, and with this year’s lineup, we don’t see that changing any time soon. The annual four-day event, presented by Zachary Levi and The Nerd Machine, will return to San Diego next week at a new location, The New Children’s Museum. Attendees can experience the “free nerdy retreat” all day, every day during the con–but the real highlight is Nerd HQ’s Conversations for a Cause, intimate panels with some of our favorite stars, all benefiting Operation Smile. From Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials and Sherlock to Stephen Amell and Julie Plec, pretty much all of the just-announced panels for 2015 are on our must-see list. Check out the full lineup below:
