Coming to Comic-Con: 'MythBusters,' 'Dollhouse,' more

Mythbusters_290 Fire up your Diet Coke-and-Mentos cannons: The "MythBusters" are returning to Comic-Con. Joss Whedon and "Dollhouse" will be there too.

Discovery confirmed Friday that MythBusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage will make their second consecutive San Diego Comic-Con appearance. Savage and Hyneman will be the stars of a panel at 7:15 p.m. PT Saturday, July 25, and will show fans footage of new episodes and what goes on behind the scenes of the show.

"Mythbusters" is the latest TV series to confirm for Comic-Con panels -- bringing the total to about two dozen shows for the July 23-26 event. The Chicago Tribune has a list of all the confirmed shows as of Friday, including a special super-sized panel for "Dollhouse."

The FOX show has booked two hours in Ballroom 20 for its presentation, which will include a showing of the unaired episode "Epitaph One" (which will be available on the show's DVD set) and a question-and-answer session with Whedon and "Dollhouse" star Eliza Dushku.

Not on the confirmed list is NBC's "Heroes," which for the first time in its history won't be presenting a panel. The show will have a "presence" in San Diego, but Universal, which produces the show, isn't springing for the usual Q-and-A. Creator Tim Kring tells the Trib, though, that he and some members of the cast and crew will attend, and "we're fully expecting to have a great sneak peek at Season 4 to show."

Among the other shows who've confirmed attendance for Comic-Con are "Lost," "Chuck," "Fringe" and "Caprica." New shows on the roster include "Flash Forward," "Human Target," "Eastwick," "Past Life," AMC's "Prisoner" remake and "V."
