HBO is pushing its flagships series Game of Thrones and Westworld in a big way at 2017 San Diego Comic-Con.

The Game of Thrones panel will take place on Friday, July 21 and be moderated by a “special guest from Westeros,” according to the network. Your guess is as good as ours who that might be!

Since the panel take place just days after the highly anticipated Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere on July 16, we hope there’s some additional preview footage and some questions the star-studded panelists (see the full list below) can address without spoiling.

The Westworld panel will be held on Saturday, hosted by musician Reggie Watts. While we’ll have to wait until 2018 for Season 2, the cast and crew will reflect on the groundbreaking first season and hopefully preview what’s to come.

A flyer has also been circulating suggested an off-site Westworld experience in San Diego. Described as a “curated roadshow experience,” it seems to promote the fictional park with copy that reads: “Westworld. The classic. Reborn. Our signature attraction. Now with a brand new narrative.” FANDOM will bring you more information about this experience when it learns more, but interested fans can head to DiscoverWestworld.com.
