Winter could be coming to Comic-Con’s Hall H this summer after all. On Monday, June 10, Deadline reported that Game of Thrones and San Diego Comic-Con are basically set to reunite next month. It has not been confirmed, but according to Deadline it "looks certain."

UPDATE, 6/12/19: Comic-Con spokesperson David Glanzer issued the following statement to Bustle:

EARLIER: Assuming this does happen, the Game of Thrones panel at SDCC 2019 will not be about upcoming episodes, as it has been in years past. Because, as you might've heard, there are not any upcoming Game of Thrones episodes to talk about. Because, as you might’ve heard, the last season of Game of Thrones ended in May.

Instead, the panel will presumably be in celebration of the hit series and/or the perfect place to tease any of the forthcoming Game of Thrones spinoffs. This will be the first time the series has been at Comic-Con since 2017. Thrones skipped the pop culture convention last year because it was busy making the eighth and final season of Thrones. Last June, HBO said in a statement,

What do you know? The future is now. Game of Thrones is reportedly already ready to return to San Diego Comic-Con.


Exactly which members of the Game of Thrones roster would be present and accounted for at this year's panel has yet to be revealed, but according to Deadline, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin is "anticipated to appear in one form or another."

Might he "appear in one form or another" to promote any of the Game of Thrones offshoots that HBO has in the works? Hm? In a blog post that went up last month, the creator of the Game of Thrones universe hinted at what's coming down the pike his blog, writing,

The network confirmed to Entertainment Weekly in February that a Game of Thrones prequel was slated to start filming in "early summer."

Between the "successor shows" and the final season of Game of Thrones original recipe, there will be a lot of potential topics to cover at GoT's post-final season Comic-Con appearance. May they spend no less than 15 minutes on that water bottle that wormed its way into the series finale.
