SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego Comic-Con will get its fill of scares on Friday, as "The Walking Dead" hoard of fans head back to Hall H, along with "Halloween" and "Glass."

SDCC revealed its July 20 lineup Friday, unveiling times for fan-favorite panels including TWD, "Fear the Walking Dead," and Hall H movie panels for Universal and Sony Pictures.

Aside from the big panels that routinely draw crowds, there's plenty to check out at the convention's smaller stages.

SDCC 2018:

If you're a fan of "Star Wars," swing by a mock court martial of Rebel pilot Poe Dameron. (If you saw the last film, you'll understand why.) Adam Savage, of "MythBusters" fame, will also be in town for a panel on his plans on the Discovery Channel.
