Normally at the San Diego Convention Center, on a Saturday at SDCC, there are too many panels to choose from. Luckily with SDCC@Home, you can watch the panels at anytime from your own home. Here are a few panels I’ll be tuning into on Saturday’s schedule.
The Order is back with another exciting season! This panel will talk about the inspiration behind our favorite secret society, how our characters have coped with the events of season 1, and how we were able to bring some exciting guest stars to the season. They’ll also discuss their favorite magical couples and answer some burning questions left unanswered after the finale.
Jake Manley – “Jack”
Adam DiMarco – “Randall”
Thomas Elms – “Hamish”
Devery Jacobs – ” Lilith”
Katharine Isabelle – “Vera”
Louriza Tronco – “Gabrielle”

Shelley Eriksen – executive producer and writer
Chad Oakes – executive producer
Mike Frislev – executive producer

The Order is one panel that I definitely will not miss!!!
