Comic Con 2015 is almost here and you know what that means—we're all about to be really tired!

Of course, we'll also be happier than we have been all year, because we'll be having four and a half days of non-stop TV-related fun, and there is literally nothing better than that.

In order to make SDCC extra fun and as stress-free as possible for all of us, we've got your guide to the biggest TV-related events you won't want to miss if you're heading to San Diego this weekend.

So bring out the inflatable line furniture and start blowing and stock up on some snacks, because you won't want to be late!

Wednesday, July 8 (Preview Night)

Pilot screenings: Supergirl (CBS), Blindspot (NBC), Containment (The CW), and Lucifer (Fox)
6-10 p.m. in Ballroom 20
If you were lucky enough to score a preview night badge, get a sneak peek at some of your new favorite shows. Some haven't even been screened by press yet!


Thursday, July 9

2:15 to 3:15 p.m. in Hall H
It's Peter Capaldi's first SDCC as the doctor, and he'll be joined by stars Jenna Coleman and Michelle Gomez, along with writer Steven Moffat.

Teen Wolf (MTV)
5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Ballroom 20
Even if you aren't in the room, you'll probably still be able to hear the screams (of excitement over cast members like Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien). So in all likelihood, you literally won't be able to miss this panel. Plus, the show tends to make major announcements during the panel.

Friday, July 10

The Walking Dead (AMC)

All your fave zombie survivors will be there to make jokes, be adorable, and introduce an official sneak peek of season six. Be there or be…dead. And sneak peek-less.

Game of Thrones (HBO)
2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Hall H

Marvel Television Presents: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter (ABC)
3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Ballroom 20
Any panel that has the potential to let Agent Carter's Hayley Atwell further cement her place in our hearts is a panel worth attending.
