It’s Back! The Guild is set to open it’s fifth season in a week on July 26th. This NerdBastard is excited to find out what’s next. Will Wheaton be back? Who will we meet at the gaming convention, more Big Bang Theory cast members? Simon Helberg (Howard) played the GM in Season four’s finale. The gaming convention would be a great place for cameo’s. If you watch the Guild, who is your favorite character? Is there a character that matches your MMO play style? Here’s the press release and a teaser video:
Los Angeles, CA (July 15, 2011) – Season five of The Guild will return to Xbox LIVE on the Zunevideo Marketplace and MSN Video on Tuesday, July 26, sponsored by Microsoft and Sprint. Picking up where season four left off, season five takes the Guild members out from behind their computers and throws them into the real world like the show has never seen before, with new locations, guest stars, celebrity cameos and more!
The Guild stars writer/creator Felicia Day (Eureka, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog) as Codex, a lovable geek gamer addicted to an online role-playing game. Season five follows the characters of The Guild as they travel to a gaming convention called MEGAGAME-O-RAMACON. “Conventions like San Diego Comic-Con and Penny Arcade Expo have been a part of our experience promoting The Guild and connecting with fans,” says Felicia Day. “I wanted to bring that unique experience of a going to a con to the screen.” In addition to regular cast members Vincent Caso, Jeff Lewis, Amy Okuda, Sandeep Parikh and Robin Thorsen, season five will feature recognizable guest stars from the science fiction and genre community as well as over 200 extras.
The Guild will appear for the fourth consecutive year at San Diego Comic-Con with daily signings at booth 4201 and a panel at 4pm Saturday, July 23 in the Hilton Bayfront Indigo Ballroom, Comicon’s second-largest venue. The panel will include a preview of season five and Q&A with the cast.
