In a late development, Twentieth Century Fox Television will return GLEE to Comic-Con for the fourth straight year with a star-studded panel that is sure to be standing-room only for GLEEks of all ages. The panel is scheduled to take place in the Indigo Room on Saturday, July 14 from 6:00-7:00 PM PT and will be moderated by TVLine.com’s Michael Ausiello.
“The fans at Comic-Con were among the first to really get behind our show, and we’ve had such a great time returning there every summer,” said GLEE co-creator/executive producer Brad Falchuk. “This was the first year our cast has not gone out on tour, so Ryan and I thought we’d let them have some well-deserved time off. But everyone wanted to be there, and we couldn’t be happier to report that GLEE is returning to the convention where we feel it all started.”
Original cast members Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera are all returning to the “Con,” some for the first time since GLEE initially appeared at the convention to standing-room-only crowds back in 2009. Additionally, Falchuk will be on the panel to answer questions and tease the upcoming season.
