Comic-Con 2013 Schedule for Sunday, July 21st Includes BREAKING BAD, DOCTOR WHO, COMMUNITY, SONS OF ANARCHY, and More

     July 7, 2013


Now that the entire schedule for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con has been announced with today’s unveiling of the Sunday lineup, it’s quite clear that if you’re coming to the Con for TV, you’re going to be very happy.  TV panels have moved into Hall H on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in addition to Sunday, and so the extent of studios’ feature film presence has been pared down considerably.  There’s still a lot to look forward to, but the film offerings this year are few and far between.

That being said, Sunday’s TV-only lineup is rather swell, with Breaking Bad taking over Hall H for the final season panel, in addition to Hall H panels for Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Community, which should be rather eventful given that series creator/candid-to-a-fault showrunner Dan Harmon is taking part.  Hit the jump to check out the highlights from Sunday’s Comic-Con programming, and be sure to check Collider frequently during the Con for all of our recaps, interviews, and much more.  Comic-Con 2013 runs from July 18th – 21st.

Here are the highlights from Sunday’s programming.  Click here to view the full schedule.
