The Walking Dead Panel closed out New York Comic-Con Saturday night at the Hulu Theater at MSG, and it was bittersweet, as it was Andrew Lincoln’s last one as Rick Grimes, as this is his last season as the popular character. Chris Hardwick (The Talking Dead) moderated, and after a bunch of amazing trailers and The Walking Dead commercials, he introduced the dazzling cast and crew: new showrunner Angela Kang, Scott Gimple, co-creator Robert Kirkman, producer Dave Alpert, executive producer Gale Ann Hurd, producer and director Greg Nicotero, stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), Danai Gurira (Michonne), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan).
The Walking Dead is certainly the biggest draw at New York Comic Con each year, and NYCC 2017 was no different. With an exuberant crowd at Madison Square Garden, the show’s cast and crew took to the stage to offer some insight into the series’ upcoming eighth season.

And again to Norman Reedus: Which is the darkest season for Daryl in terms of his sanity and morals? (Oooh… good question!)
From Daryl to Daryl: What kind of character development can we expect to see in season 6 for Daryl?
Steven Yeun reads a loving lovely text from Lauren Cohan to the cast, crew, and the fans.
Morgan and Rick have man-love. Yes. I said it (actually, just repeating it).
Conan is live at Comic-Con this week, and as we saw on Wednesday night, host Conan O’Brien and his sidekick Andy Richterrode to San Diego via Fury Road Mad Max-style.
During last night’s live show, O’Brien hosted some celebrity-filled Wolverine auditions and welcomed famous Hobbit Elijah Wood, along with Nerdist king Chris Hardwick, who not only hosts Talking Dead, the live post-Walking Dead show, but he’s also a frequent moderator for panels at SDCC’s famed massive Hall H.
Hardwick — clad in a Spider-Man suit — took the opportunity to give O’Brien a “Comic-Con Citizenship Test,” where he asked questions like, “What’s Daredevil’s greatest weakness?” and such.
Here below, watch the video of the “Comic-Con Citizenship Test” — I think we’ll all agree with Conan’s responses. Also below are more videos from Hardwick’s appearance, as well as the Wolverine Auditions.
