The heat won’t stop Comic-Con

San Diego is in the middle of very warm heat wave but that isn’t stopping fans from heading out and lining up for more coming this Saturday. Trust me when I say Friday was jammed packed, and I have the barking dawg’s (meaning my feet) to show for it.

That being said worry not — there will be in-depth articles coming on favorite shows, new series this fall and films coming to a theatre near you! Let’s get to Saturday’s schedule so you can plan your day!

I have to admit that this next show is a serious guilty pleasure of mine, oh heck, I’ll admit they pretty much all are ranked up there! ABC’s “Once Upon A Time” is the first and I love the characters and the twists creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz come up with. Fans will be shown an exclusive sneak peek of the show’s fall return.

Keifer Sutherland returns in the new ABC series “Designated Survivor” as San Diego Comic-Con brings a screening and a panel that is sure to include some surprising guests.

The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” will be bringing a special video presentation along with a Q&A. “The Originals” has become so dang good that I can’t stand waiting a week in between episodes. These vampires are a handful and along with a wolf pack it is clear I’m hooked so hurry up fall season! Yes, your favorite vampires will be there as well.

The morning also brings back a trio of iconic little ladies with Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup also known as “The Powderpuff Girls!” Of course my cohort Jenise was a huge fan of these three girls when she was but a girl herself. Now, with a daughter of her own, she is thrilled that the show is returning to a new generation.

Of course SDCC would never let an anniversary go by and “Star Trek” 50 is no exception. In Hall H there will be a celebration of five decades flying through the universe pushing that final frontier. Part of the stellar panel is William Shatner, Scott Bakula, Michael Dorn, Jeri Ryan and Brent Spiner. Part of the celebration is the excitement of the new “Star Trek” television series coming in 2017 on CBS.

FOX also bringing a special video presentation as well as a Q&A for the series “Gotham” with the season three premier on Sept. 19. That’s not all! Ballroom 20 wouldn’t be complete without “Supergirl,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash” and “Arrow.” What an fantastic look at what’s coming this fall. Also, the charming “Lucifer” brings scoops on a devilish second season.

Warner Bros. Television will be highlighting new shows that are coming soon with “Riverdale,” “Frequency” and “Time After Time.” The best is that each of these series will present their pilot episodes and on very large screens which is always fun.

NBC brings “Blindspot” along with cast members Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza and Ashley Johnson along with writer/producer Martin Gero.

SyFy returns with “The Expanse” to discuss the ending of season one. Also, “The Magicians” brings cast and teasers to talk about the new season. SyFy is also bringing “Incorporated” with an exclusive screening and a story set in the future from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

From the cable network STARZ comes the Season 2 premier of the frakken awesome “Ash vs. the Evil Dead” and trust me if you haven’t seen this show I have to wonder if we can be friends until you do!

Another amazing event is the 30th Anniversary of “Aliens.” James Cameron, Gale Anne Hurd, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Michael Biehn and Paul Reiser return to look back at an iconic series of films that is still a hit with fans today.

That is what is going on inside from dawn till way past dusk which gives everyone more time to jump into the outdoor fun. Everyone I know has been hitting up all the outdoor interactive events and after that make sure to hit the Exhibit Hall one more time because after Sunday we have to wait another year. Actually that’s about how much time it will take for all of us to recover but we love every minute of it.

Enjoy your Saturday with family, friends and new friends and remember to be safe but have the time of your life!
