In 2018, TWD panel guests included Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lauren Cohan, producer-director Greg Nicotero and showrunner Angela Kang. It was there Lincoln addressed his exiting the show for the first time publicly.

Fear returned with stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay García, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, and Garret Dillahunt alongside producers Robert Kirkman and Gale Anne Hurd.

It is not yet known which stars will participate in the panels, but fans should expect SDCC regulars Reedus, Gurira and Morgan to participate in AMC’s TWD presentation, potentially joined by Melissa McBride, Khary Payton and series newcomers Samantha Morton, Ryan Hurst and Cassady McClincy. James, Debnam-Carey, Domingo and the Fear crew are likely to return, possibly alongside series newcomer Austin Amelio and chief content officer Scott Gimple.
