AMC Announces Comic-Con 2018 Plans for ‘Walking Dead’, ‘Preacher’, and More!
AMC has released their plans for San Diego Comic-Con 2018, and we couldn’t be geeking out over them more!
The cast and producers of AMC’s hit scripted series The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead and Preacher will return to this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, CA. AMC’s Emmy®-nominated series Better Call Saul will also make its Comic-Con debut alongside a reunion panel for Breaking Bad in celebration of the Emmy® Award-winning drama’s 10-year anniversary!
So let’s talk panels, events, and more! Here’s a full breakdown of AMC’s lineup during Comic-Con
- A red-carpet premiere screening event for “Better Call Saul,” featuring the series cast and producers. The Emmy®-nominated series returns for its fourth season on Monday, August 6
- “Dead Quarters,” the official fan zone of “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” The immersive experience will feature a curated walk through of settings from both series, including The Sanctuary and a thrilling 22-foot Zombie slide, inspired by the one in “Fear,” as well as photo opportunities with the walker composter and Negan’s “flaming Lucille,” among other activities.
- A booth activation for The Walking Dead: Our World, AMC and Next Games’ new location-based, augmented reality mobile game, launching July 12. Convention attendees will have an opportunity to play the game in a unique “Walking Dead”-themed setting, fighting walkers with Rick, Daryl, Michonne and other characters from the series. In celebration of Comic-Con, The Walking Dead: Our World will also offer players an exclusive, limited-time “Comic-Con Special Encounter” in-game activation, which will reward players with guaranteed “Rare” or “Epic” characters from “The Walking Dead” series to add to their collections in the game.
