The Passage

20th Century Fox Television, always a fixture at San Diego Comic-Con, will be spotlighting its brand new vampire series The Passage this year with a world premiere screening and talent session.

The series, which is launching on Fox in early 2019, is based on Justin Cronin’s bestselling fantasy book trilogy about a secret government medical facility that experiments with a dangerous virus that could either cure all disease or cause the downfall of the human race. Series stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Saniyaa Sidney, Henry Ian Cusick, Jamie McShane and EP Liz Heldens and EP/director Jason Ensler will be chatting on the first Friday night of Comic-Con at 6 PM.

Other highlights include a sneak peek of Season 2 of the X-Men-inspired series The Gifted on Saturday at 2:30 PM. And we can’t forget Kurt Sutter bringing his FX Sons of Anarchy spinoff Mayans M.C. on Sunday.
