“Heroes” was well-received at the last three San Diego Comic-Cons – some actually credit the show’s first trip to Comic-Con, a few months before it premiered in 2006, with helping the nerd-friendly drama become a breakout hit.
This year, however, “Heroes” will not do a panel at Comic-Con.
According to a representative from Universal Media Studios, which makes the show, “Heroes” will “have a presence” at Comic-Con in various ways, but that presence will not involve the typical panel discussion that is a staple of Comic-Con.
Most TV presentations involve the cast and creators sitting up on a stage, talking about their show, debuting new footage and taking fan questions. The fourth season of “Heroes” will be promoted at Comic-Con, but not in that way.
