San Diego Comic-Con International is a time for major networks to bring both hit series and new television beginnings into the spotlight, and TNT is cashing in on the opportunity by bringing three of its action-packed summer series to the major weekend event.
Falling Skies, The Last Ship and new series Legends will all host individual panels during the first two days of Comic-Con, each bringing a slew of talent with them. Below is how the panel schedules will lay out.
Legends: Thursday, July 24
Starting off TNT’s Comic-Con appearance will be Legends, the network’s highly-anticipated new drama that revolves around an FBI agent (Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean) who begins to question his own identity after many years of working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations. An exclusive screening of the pilot episode will be available for fans to watch at Comic-Con, followed by a Q&A executive producers Howard Gordon and David Wilcox, as well as cast members Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut and Tina Majorino.
The Last Ship: Thursday, July 24
Comic-Con’s opening day will also play host to TNT’s breakout-hit The Last Ship, a story revolving around a Navy destroyer that managed to evade a global disaster, leaving it and its crew to confront the reality of being among some of the world’s only survivors. Fans of the series will be treated to a Q&A session with The Last Ship stars Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin and Charles Parnell as well as executive producers Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane. Exclusive video clips previewing what’s to come in the rest of Season 1 will also be shown during the panel.
Falling Skies: Friday, July 25
This year will mark the fourth appearance of Falling Skies, the explosive tale of life and survival after an alien invasion, at Comic-Con and TNT is bringing out all the stops. Included in the show’s appearance will be a star-studded panel regarding the series fourth season, including Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Will Patton, Sarah Carter, Maxim Knight, Scarlett Byrne, Doug Jones and executive producer David Eick. The panel will also include video clips from upcoming episodes and, in a most-excitable fashion, the world premiere of the trailer for the upcoming video game, Falling Skies: The Game.
And in even more exciting news, Falling Skies and The Last Ship have both been renewed for another season by the network, as well as another TNT hit Major Crimes. Falling Skies renewal will be the fifth and final season for the alien drama with a 10-episode order, while The Last Ship has been given 13 episodes in the upcoming season, an increase from its Season 1 order of 10.
