As for Comic-Con, this year will be the biggest yet for “Teen Wolf,” which has been a fixture at the San Diego fan fest through its run. For the first time, “Teen Wolf” will take over Hall H, the largest venue at the convention center, which is typically reserved for pop culture phenomenons like “Star Wars,” “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead.” The panel will take place on Thursday, July 20 at 2 p.m., and will feature cast members Tyler Posey, Dylan Sprayberry, Shelley Hennig, Cody Christian, Khylin Rhambo and executive producer Jeff Davis.
