It's the announcement we've been hoping for since we learned that there would be a Middleman panel at San Diego Comic-Con - Mark Sheppard has confirmed rumors that the panel will include a cast reading of the unmade final episode.
Sheppard's Facebook page broke the news yesterday:
Comicon July 23rd, 11:15 - ...a LIVE READING OF THE LOST MIDDLEMAN THIRTEENTH EPISODE SCRIPT - THE DOOMSDAY ARMAGEDDON APOCALYPSE!
The full cast line-up for the panel is still unannounced, but Shout! Factory, who're organizing it, have said that
[W]e do have several cast members already lined up. There will be multiple people doing voices.
Series creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach also Twittered encouragingly:
comic-con: live reading of "the doomsday armageddon apocalypse" with the entire middleman cast reunited...sound good to anyone?
As for what happens in that final episode, the new Middleman website posted a blurb about the graphic novel based on it, also coming out at Comic Con:
Who is The Middleman's long-lost love? Can Lacey Thornfield ever forget her requited but never-acted-upon attraction The Middleman? Is Manservant Neville a beneficent plutocrat or an evil madman with a nefarious plan for world domination? Will Wendy Watson and Tyler Ford ever find time for one another? Will Wendy Watson ever wear a slave girl costume?
All your burning questions will be answered - and all your burning answers will be questioned - in this season-ending, series-concluding installment of The Middleman.
Now you know where we're going to be on Thursday morning at the con.http://publish.io9.com/ged/5302916
