Pretty Little Liars is heading to New York Comic-Con. Which will probably surprise some people, because it’s not the typical thing that would appear at the event. But it does have a big bad villain and heroes trying to defeat her.
PLL isn’t the only ABC Family show heading to New York. The new hit show Stitchers will also be appearing and upcoming Shadowhunters will be there too. Stitchers and PLL will have back to back panels on Friday, October 9 at 11/10c am in room 1A06 and the cast of Shadowhunters will appear on Saturday, October 10 at 11am on the Empire Stage.
Lucy Hale (Aria Montgomery), Ashley Benson (Hanna Marin), Shay Mitchell (Emily Fields), Troian Bellisario (Spencer Hastings) and Sasha Pieterse (Alison DiLaurentis) will be discussing the ‘A’ reveal and what’s next for the series.
According to TVLine, executive producers I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick and Joseph Dougherty will also be in attendance and will bring new footage of the five-year time jump with them.
I was super excited when I heard the liars would be at NY Comic-Con, especially seeing as I already got my three day passes!
The drama is a little different from what you see at these cons, unless it’s San Diego, and that’s filled with TV shows.
I’m curious how popular this panel will be. I’m not sure how many people who are going are also fans of the show. The ABC Family drama has a huge fan base, but maybe not necessarily the same fans that go to NY Comic-Con.
I was also surprised to see that the panel will be in one of the panel rooms and not the Main Stage or the Empire Stage. This makes me think that the organizers don’t think it’s going to be very big, but could it be bigger than they realize?
Last year was my first year at NY Comic-Con and I had no idea how any of it worked. I read the doors opened at 10, but I didn’t realize that if you wanted to go to the big panels, you had to get there a lot earlier than that. I read that people lined up at 5 am in the morning for The Walking Dead. I would have been one of those people, if I knew that’s what you were supposed to do.
On Sunday I knew what the deal was and I arrived at about 7am to line up to see the Gotham panel. I was able to get my wristband for that and then rush over to see The Following panel on the Empire Stage. There was a lot of time spent in lines that day, but it was well worth it.
I’m not sure how it will work for PLL, but you can be sure that I’ll be in line early to see them.
We still don’t know who will be appearing on the Main Stage. Could The Walking Dead be returning? Heroes Reborn could be huge too. Will they want to promote their new show? There’s a lot of comic movies coming out too, could those films be in attendance? And lets not forget about Star Wars, which is right around the corner.
There’s a lot of possibilities, but who will NY Comic-Con get?
