'Doctor Who,' 'The Predator,' 'Breaking Bad' headline SDCC Thursday panels

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Comic-Con fever has begun as the convention has started to unveil its programming lineup, announcing its July 19 schedule Thursday.

Comic-Con organizers have remained tight-lipped about what's in store for its panels, but that hasn't stopped networks, film studios, and comic publications from revealing their plans ahead of time.

Thursday starts SDCC 2018 with a bang, bringing Doctor Who, Fox's "The Predator," and a 10th-anniversary reunion of the cast of AMC's "Breaking Bad" all to the big Hall H stage.
