[via press release from ABC]


Hit Series 'Once Upon a Time' Returns for Its Sixth Consecutive Year

'Designated Survivor' and Freeform's 'Dead of Summer' Make Their Comic-Con Debuts

ABC will be bringing star power to Comic-Con 2016 with returning fan favorite "Once Upon a Time," as well as a first look at the much anticipated new series "Designated Survivor" and Freeform's spine-tingling "Dead of Summer."

On Friday, July 22, Freeform and ABC Signature Studios invite you into the realm of Camp Stillwater and their new hit series, "Dead of Summer." Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses - and first kills. Stillwater's dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn. Join moderator Damian Holbrook, senior writer, TV Guide Magazine, for a Q&A panel with co-creators and executive producers Edward Kitsis ("Once Upon a Time," "Lost), Adam Horowitz ("Once Upon a Time," "Lost") and Ian Goldberg ("Once Upon a Time," "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior"), along with some of the show's cast members, as they discuss the new series of haunting secrets, self-discovery and supernatural lore. This panel is sure to bring some surprises you don't want to miss, and everyone in attendance will receive a "Dead of Summer" t-shirt! 2:15-3:15 p.m., Room 6A.

On Saturday, July 23, the Evil Queen is back! The heroes of "Once Upon a Time" grapple with the return of this super-charged classic villain, while also dealing with Mr. Hyde and the new arrivals from the Land of Untold Stories. And as our favorite Storybrooke residents help to find happy endings for these lost and forgotten stories, they'll discover that they have some untold stories of their own. Join co-creators and executive producers Edward Kitsis ("Lost," "Dead of Summer") and Adam Horowitz ("Lost," "Dead of Summer"), along with some of your favorite "Once Upon a Time" cast members, as they discuss the upcoming season of unexpected twists, evolving characters, new adventures and new rivalries with moderator Yvette Nicole Brown. This panel is sure to bring some surprises you don't want to miss and an exclusive sneak peek at what's in store for the upcoming season! 10:00-10:45 a.m., Ballroom 20, followed by a special autograph session from 11:15 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the ABC Booth on the Convention Center Floor, booth #4245.

Also on Saturday, July 23, Comic-Con attendees are invited to an exclusive screening of this fall's highly anticipated conspiracy thriller, "Designated Survivor," from the producers of "Quantico." Kiefer Sutherland ("24") returns to primetime as Tom Kirkman, a lower cabinet member who unexpectedly becomes President after a devastating attack on Washington, D.C. Following the screening, join moderator Henry Goldblatt from Entertainment Weekly for a Q&A panel with show stars Maggie Q ("Nikita," "Divergent") and Kal Penn ("Deadbeat," "Harold & Kumar"). Popcorn and soda will be provided, and we will also be giving away an exclusive "Designated Survivor" item that will not be found anywhere else and only for those people in attendance at the screening and Q&A panel. You won't want to miss it! 7:00-8:30 p.m., Horton Grand Theatre.

ABC's booth on the Convention Center Floor (booth #4245) will be a replica of the White House in honor of "Designated Survivor." Comic Con go-ers can come inside the oval office and view an exclusive sneak peek of the show. Each day, we will have a different item to give away to our White House visitors, and all will receive an exclusive White House badge, complete with their photo and staff position. Fans are encouraged to post pictures from the booth and/or photo ops using #designatedsurvivor for a chance to win VIP access to the Saturday night screening and panel Q&A at the Horton Grand Theater.

Additionally, we will be handing out an exclusive "Once Upon a Time" postcard from the ABC booth. 100 randomly chosen fans will receive a very special postcard, which will allow them exclusive access to the "Once Upon a Time" autograph session at the ABC booth on Saturday afternoon. Fans are encouraged to post pictures of themselves with the post card, using #onceuponatime, and 10 winners will be chosen from those postings to each receive a VIP ticket to the "Once Upon a Time" Comic Con panel on Saturday morning.
