ABC Television will be represented at this year’s San Diego Comic Con with panels for Once Upon a Time and The Muppet Show.

The first glimpse at the upcoming season of ABC’s Once Upon a Time will be shown during the show’s upcoming panel at San Diego Comic Con.

Cast members Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Sean Maguire and Rebecca Mader along with co-creators and executive producers Edward Kitsis (LOST) and Adam Horowitz (LOST) will discuss the upcoming season of unexpected twists, evolving characters, new adventures and new rivalries.

The Q&A session will be moderated by Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) and fans will get an exclusive sneak peek at what’s in store for Season 5, where Emma Swan transitions into her role as the Dark One, and they begin the search for Merlin.

The panel will take place Saturday, July 11, at 10am in Ballroom 20. They’re expecting big crowds for this one.
