HBO has announced that they are sitting out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, scrapping potential panels for both “Game of Thrones” and “Westworld”.
A rep for HBO says: “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.”
This would mark the first time ‘Thrones’ has ever skipped its annual Comic Con appearance where it is often one of the most-anticipated panels at the event. The “Westworld” S2 finale airs June 24th, while “Game of Thrones” is set to return for its final season in 2019.
