Well, that’s a bit of a surprise. Once Upon A Time is, indeed, coming to San Diego Comic Con.
Not a surprise because of the kind of show it is, or the network, or because the show had never been at SDCC, they had, but the lateness of the announcement and the fact that Season 7 is set to be a reboot with only three original cast members – Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue and Lana Parrilla remaining, had made us think that this year, we might not get a Once Upon A Time panel.
Turns out, we are. 10 AM. Ballroom 20. Saturday. Just like always.
THR was the first to report the news. There’s no word yet on which cast members will be in attendance, though we might get that information as soon as tomorrow, when the Saturday schedule is released. O’Donoghue seems like a lock, though, since he’s already confirmed for Entertainment Weekly’s Brave New Warriors panel. Considering there are only 3 big names this season, it would make sense for Carlyle and Parrilla to be in attendance as well, with some of the new cast members likely joining them.
What do you think? Are you surprised to see the show back at SDCC? Excited? Apprehensive? What news do you hope comes out of this? Share with us in the comments below!
Once Upon A Time will returns Fridays this Fall on ABC.
