Bad news for the fans of two big HBO shows: both GAME OF THRONES and WESTWORLD will not host panels at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
HBO said in a statement “Due to production schedules and air dates for GAME OF THRONES and WESTWORLD, these series will not be presented at San Diego Comic-Con this summer. HBO has a longstanding relationship with SDCC, and we are very grateful for the fans’ enthusiastic response over the years. We look forward to returning in the future.”
Given that the currently airing second season of WESTWORLD ends before Comic-Con begins, this makes sense. However, depending on when the final season of GAME OF THRONES premieres next year, it’s possible that it may also end before next year’s convention, meaning that the show won’t be making any future treks to San Diego.
