Comic-Con 2012 TV Update: 'Falling Skies,' 'Firefly,' 'Holliston'


The upcoming TV season will have one of the most genre-heavy lineups of all time - certainly in my lifetime. With every network in on it (except CBS, interestingly enough) and more cable channels than ever before, TV is taking control of Comic-Con 2012. The biggest announcement of the day is that there will be a Firefly reunion at the Con. Ten years after Joss Whedon's cult follow-up to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, series stars Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher and Michael Fairman will join Whedon and writer/producer Tim Minear on a panel on Friday the 13th. We've also got details on new panels for shows like Falling SkiesGrimm, and FEARnet's own Holliston.
