    Wow! What a great lineup, Nerd HQ is giving us a lot of variety. I hope to get into Seth Green’s and Joss Whedon’s panels.

  2. bill norrisJuly 10th, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    gonna Ustream as well….. please please

  3. dannyJuly 10th, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Can’t wait! Hopefully I can get a ticket!

  4. CambearJuly 10th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    Any details on who is attending or if it’s a talk and signing?

  5. Joshua StoneJuly 10th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    Will there be signings with any of the panels?

  6. Number1ChuckFanJuly 10th, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    Is Grimm gonna have a panel?

  7. Devri FritschJuly 10th, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    Very cool line-up. When will we know which ones include signings?

    Check out the website where tickets will go on sale tomorrow, and you’ll see the participants in the panels are listed:

    No word yet on signings. and everyone just has to be patient to find out more information!!! They’re still confirming details with possible guests. It’d be really unfortunate to say “we’re trying to get Grimm” and then have it fall through. So just keep your fingers crossed, and get excited!!! 🙂

  11. Leilani McHughJuly 10th, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    So exciting! What a great line-up, HQ!

  12. SarahJuly 10th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    Are the panels being held in the same room? B/c they’re back to back. How early can we line up for our panel?

  13. TamJuly 10th, 2013 at 11:56 pm

    Great lineup. I’m still holding out hope for a Chuck panel.

  14. JasonJuly 11th, 2013 at 6:35 am

    Can someone confirm if there will be any signings or not? I want to buy tickets to the 300 event if Eva Green is signing afterwards.

  15. Sabrina "Asian-ish Girl"July 11th, 2013 at 7:51 am

    I’m shaking with anticipation for NERD HQ and conversations with a cause! Hoping to see a Grimm and possibly a Dexter panel! (I know long shot but one can dream)

  16. Karen ShefflerJuly 11th, 2013 at 10:03 am

    I can not wait, coming in from Orlando, FL for this…desperately want to go to Nathan Fillion’s panel. It is my birthday and would be the best present ever!

  17. Daniel HermanJuly 11th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I’m coming from Rochester NY. And believe me, I’m just as excited as you Karen 🙂
    And I was worried that there weren’t going to be any good guests this year.

  18. AllieJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    Apparently tickets sold out for Doctor Who in the 30 seconds it took the page to load. 🙁

  19. MartyJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    Wow. Logged in. Had the Sherlock panel in my cart. Entered payment information. Clicked Submit. And the website kicked me out. Now it’s showing that it’s sold out. Awesome.

  20. Leilani McHughJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    ok – I’m upset. I got in and had a seat for Sherlock – went to pay for it and got kicked out of system! I had a seat, credit card ready and got bumped. Sad……………………….

  21. mrjroc83July 11th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    So I was only able to get tickets into the following:
    I, Frankenstein
    300: Rise of an Empire

    I really wanted to get into Joss’s panel…two years I haven’t gotten in his panel yet…

  22. MartyJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Solidarity, Leilani!

  23. JasonJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    Got tix for Doctor Who — figure even if they don’t sign, I will enjoy the talk. And get to be really close to Jenna-Louise Coleman.

  24. MartyJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    I take back my earlier snark. Decided to check back in. Somehow Sherlock was no longer sold out. Success the second time! Leilani and any others who got kicked out the first time, try again.

  25. Leilani McHughJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Darn – just saw your post – went back in and sold-out again! 🙁

  26. JessicaJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    I was able to get two tickets for Doctor Who for my husband and sister in law; but couldn’t get back in to get myself one. At least they get to see it that is better than nothing.

  27. Devri FritschJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Leilani, Marty,

    Is there room on the bench for one more? Made the purchase and got “order complete” screen. Then got an email with conformation number for zero tickets. How does that happen?

  28. Devri FritschJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:51 pm


    Keep refreshing. I got “sales ended” then refreshed again and tickets were available.

  29. Leilani McHughJuly 11th, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    I’ve been re-freshing and going in and out of the site and still sold out. Never saw a “sales ended”. If anyone has an extra ticket……………………………Devra, that sounds weird – hope you get in

  30. Leilani McHughJuly 11th, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Got the tweet – went back to ticket website, still no luck. No good luck. Still sad

  31. Daniel HermanJuly 11th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    I got into Joss Whedon!
    I did a little dance.. and no one at my office seemed to appreciate my excitement.

  32. ScottJuly 11th, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Had the ticket for Joss Whedon selected and in my cart. Before I could pay, my phone decided it no longer wanted to be a hot spot. After an hour or so of messing around, I got back online. Too little, too late. I am happy for all those that did get tickets. Have fun.

  33. Karen ShefflerJuly 11th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    No luck for me, my internet service was down when tickets went on sale. Everything was sold out by the time is was working. Still hoping for the Nathan Fillion tickets.

  34. MichaJuly 11th, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    I really hope the Nathan Fillion & Zachary Levi panels are NOT on Friday. I really want to see them again and would love to attend a panel on Thursday or Saturday, maybe even Sunday. Pretty please 🙂 Oh, and I hope Zachary’s still doing pics & kisses for charity like last year. Maybe Nathan would do that too? 😉

  35. Pink MohawkJuly 11th, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    Yeah, the whole ticket thing gave us problems too and we didn’t end up getting tickets to the two panels we tried purchasing them for. Ah well, I am sure they will open up some more seats for the panels being that Petco is plenty large enough. Let’s Hope!


  36. BillQSJuly 11th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    Be kind of weird if there’s no Chuck Panel…

  37. Jen MariaJuly 11th, 2013 at 10:11 pm

    Any chance the Zac or Nathan panels will be on Saturday? That would be perfection!!! 🙂

  38. sundollJuly 12th, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    Zac usually does his panel as the very last one of the weekend, sort of a wrap-up to HQ. Nathan has hinted he’ll be around a lot but who knows.

    And I wouldn’t plan on more seats or even standing room only right now. The part of the stadium the panels are in doesn’t appear to have a lot of extra space, and aisles probably have to be kept clear for fire code. They were also pretty adamant about not losing the intimate feeling, but we’ll see.

  39. ScottJuly 12th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Since they will be streamed, any possibility of wifi spots or screens for viewing as an alternate way to see the panel for people that don’t have seats? Any areas of Petco that would work for this?

  40. DebbieJuly 12th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    Anxiously awaiting the announcement of Nathan Fillion’s and Zac Levi’s Conversation dates!! Hoping for Saturday!!! 🙂

  41. DanielleJuly 13th, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    But what about chuck?..I’m legitimately sad right now.

  42. SonjaJuly 15th, 2013 at 2:08 am

    I hope they announce Nathan Fillion and Seth Green soon, would love to see these guys. I just hope they don’t do it while i’m in the air for 19hrs…

  43. MattJuly 15th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Woah!! These new additions to the lineup just blew me away!! The Serenity viewing party sounds amazing!!

  44. VaronicaJuly 15th, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    OMG SERENITY?!?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?! pleeeeeease

  45. MarianaJuly 15th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    So very happy that the Nathan and Zac conversations will be sunday. Took a huge leap of faith way back when and planned on spending all day at the HQ, I feel so rewarded right now. 😀 Thanks guys!

  46. AlisonJuly 16th, 2013 at 10:34 am

    Is there going to be another CHUCK PANEL this year?

  47. CaroJuly 16th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    Sweet Jesus J2!!!!

  48. ToniJuly 16th, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    SUPERNATURAL! Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. YAY! And for a stupendously great cause. SPN is noted for its charity work. Support @operationsmile !!!

  49. Pink MohawkJuly 16th, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Either way, any of the panels will be great and it’s for a great cause.

  50. AshleyJuly 16th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Anyone know if Jared and Jensen’s tickets sold out or if they’re not on sale yet? My friend and I REALLY wanna go 🙂 If they aren’t on sale yet does any know when they’ll will be? thank you! 🙂

  51. PatriciaJuly 16th, 2013 at 1:25 pm

  52. VickiJuly 16th, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    SO EXCITED FOR THE NATHAN CONVERSATION!!!! 😀 When will the tickets go on sale???? They aren’t sold out already right? ahh. so excited

  53. NickJuly 16th, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    Anybody have any idea when the Nathan Fillion tickets go on sale? I saw something that said either tonight or tomorrow at noon more tickets would go on sale, but I’m not sure

  54. AllieJuly 16th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

  59. Jullian JerJuly 22nd, 2013 at 8:36 am

    I was able to do 5 panels this year… and they were ALL awesome.. as a big Firefly fan, It was such a treat to see either Alan or Nathan be moderators, and as a big Chuck fan, it was nice to see Zach around the HQ more often than last year.. THANK YOU to all the nerdHQ staff, you were all SOOOOO NICE!! and also a big shoutout to the volunteers, I found you all to be very helpful, and even if u didnt know the answer to all my questions, you guys made sure to send me to someone who did!! THANKS NERD HQ… cant wait til next year!!
