West Wing Cast


Austin is getting political this summer.

Once again, the ATX Television Festival is gifting TV lovers with an epic cast reunion: The West Wing! Set to take place June 9-12, the beloved festival will be hosting a panel that will feature creator Aaron Sorkin and cast members Bradley Whitford, Dule Hill, Joshua Malina, Richard Siff and Janel Moloney, as well as director and executive producer Thomas Schlamme. (Fans can expect more panelists to be announced leading up to the fest.)

And what perfect timing for a reunion as the panel will also mark the 10th anniversary of the iconic NBC series' finale, which ended in 2006 after a 156-episode run over seven seasons. 

Malina, who is currently on Scandal and was on The West Wing for four seasons, recently launched a podcast dedicated to show, called The West Wing Weekly, which goes through the series episode-by-episode.

The West Wing isn't the only beloved series staging a reunion during the festival's fifth season: To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Ugly Betty, cast members America Ferrera, Eric Mabius, Becki Newton, Michael Urie, Ashley Jensen, Ana Ortiz, Tony Plana, Mark Indelicato, Vanessa Williams and Rebecca Romijn will take the stage for the closing night panel to honor the ABC series.

Other panels set for season five of the ATX TV Festival includes reunion panels for Everybody Loves Raymond, The O.C.'s writer's room, and State of Grace, as well as panels for Ferrera's new NBC comedy Superstore, Lifetime's unREAL and Younger.

In previous seasons, ATX staged reunions of Roswell, Everwood, Friday Night Lights, and, of course, Gilmore Girls in 2015, which pretty much resulted in the Netflix revival. We're just sayin'.
