The Winchesters have hit the big time.

Warner Bros. TV, the studio that makes the CW show, announced that 'Supernatural' would make its first-ever appearance in Hall H, San Diego Comic-Con's biggest venue, on July 24.

This year Comic-Con takes place from July 21-24, and dozens of shows from many networks will have panels at the annual nerdfest. 'Chuck' will occupy its usual Saturday morning slot in Ballroom 20, which will also host appearances from the casts and creators of 'The Big Bang Theory,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Fringe' and 'Alcatraz,' the new Fox series co-created by 'Lost' veterans J.J. Abrams and Elizabeth Sarnoff.

Thanks for the info, Mo! I will be there for the first time this year and I am looking forward to it. Only panel I plan to see is Chuck, of course :)!

Not good news, actually. Hall H is enormous, yes, but is a guarantee for awful seating due to the fact that people camp for days outside of it to get in. Any seat left will be far in the back, making for the least "in person" panel experience you can have at Comic Con. It also means missing out on all the Ballroom 20 panels later in the day because choosing Hall H means a lost spot in those lines. Basically, you choose to see the SPN panel and nothing else on Sunday, or miss it. Sadcakes.

I feel like if you've taken the time to go to the San Diego Comic Con, you've already lost. Watching it on TV and the Internet is the way to go.

Having gone for years, I disagree. I enjoy Comic Con more than enough to come back, even if I'll be missing one of my favorite panels this year.
