Shadowhunters and Stitchers fans have another reason to be excited this summer! Cast members from both shows have revealed via social media that they will be attending San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). Based on standard scheduling for other shows attending the convention, we think it’s safe to assume that each series will hold a panel in addition to an autograph session with fans.
This year, San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 19-23, which means that the Stitchers panel will take place in between Episodes 6 and 7 and the Shadowhunters panel will take place between episodes 16 and 17. Comic-Con is also the weekend after the D23 Expo, where some cast members from both shows will also be available for autographs.
Stitchers fans found out from Damon Dayoub during a Facebook live chat last week that the cast would be in attendance, and though some fans had already speculated that Shadowhunters would join them at the convention, it was confirmed by Kat McNamara during a live Instagram chat on July 3 that she would be going to SDCC as well.
So which day will Freeform be hosting panels and autographs? Looking at what’s been released so far about scheduling across the convention center, our money’s on Thursday (but we’ll have to wait for the official conformation to be sure). Even though this is the first time either show will make an appearance at SDCC, both shows have attended New York Comic Con, which takes place in early October.
So far we don’t know if Harry will be going to SDCC!
In the summer season of Shadowhunters, the rift between the Shadowhunters and Downworlders grows larger and the team and their Downworlder friends and lovers are put in the middle of the dangerous divide. Torn between the Clave’s rules and what they feel is right, Clary, Jace, Alec, and Isabelle struggle to help forge a new beginning. Relationships will be tested, a new Shadowhunter named Sebastian has joined the fray, and the Seelie Queen will step out of the shadows. Moderated by IGN.com’s Matt Fowler, panelists include executive producers Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, and Matt Hastings, with series stars Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario, Isaiah Mustafa, and Harry Shum Jr.. Freeform will show an exclusive clip from an upcoming episode and give new information on season 3.
Thursday, July 20 • 1:00pm – 1:50pm
