In Closing

There is no news on True Blood yet, but I can't imagine HBO not being there.  We also won't see any panel for NBC's Day One because NBC execs say it's "too early" for that, but there will be some buzz marketing.  Huh?  Since when is it ever too early to tease fans?  Is this some kind of warning sign?

I don't think this is the best time for Tom Welling to not be at the Smallville Comic-Con panel and that has me wondering.  I'm jazzed about Bruce Campbell from Burn Notice being there, though I just might have enjoyed the explosive Fiona attending as well.

I'm also curious about the mega successful panel that Ghost Hunters had last year, why I haven't seen any news about them for this year?  The line to get into that panel went down the hall, out the back door, around the north side of the convention center and ended almost at the street out front.  Where are they this year?  Maybe it's early and they haven't announced anything yet.

Keep in mind that as with anything involving the actors, creative teams and such, all schedules, guests and plans are subject to change.  Last year the Knight Rider panel started without everyone except the showrunner because the cast got caught up in a pretty bad traffic jam trying to get to the event.

Are there any panels you, the reader, really need us to cover?  Let us know and the cadre of Screen Rant reporters will do their best to cover it!
