Not long to go till April's events!

Supanova Pop Culture Expo might have suffered some withdrawals recently, but they're bouncing back in a big way with the announcement that Friday Night Lights and Agents of SHIELD star Adrianne Palicki and Torchwood/Pacific Rim alum Burn Gorman — among others — have joined the roster of April Supastars!

In the wake of the news that Doctor Who villainess Michelle Gomez and Torchwood heroine Eve Myles would have to cancel their planned attendance at next month's events, Supanova has pulled some slick moves to secure both Palicki and Gorman along with Harry Potter franchise mainstay Bonnie Wright (aka Ginny Weasley), returning Supastar Amy Acker (of Agents of SHIELD and, formerly, Angel) and The 100 co-stars Richard Harmon and Sachin Sahel.

Also bolstering the ranks will be international comics creators Jason Latour (Southern Bastards, co-creator of fan-fave Marvel character Spider-Gwen) and Bruno Redondo (Injustice: Gods Among Us, previously Batman: Arkham Unhinged and Star Wars: Darth Maul — Death Sentence).

The new crop of talent joins an already enticing line-up of celebs, which includes the likes of Jack Gleeson (Game Of Thrones), Christopher Judge (Stargate SG-1), Allison Mack (SmallvilleWilfred), Dawn Wells (Gilligan's Island), Eka Darville (Marvel's Jessica Jones), Manu Bennett (The Shannara Chronicles, The Hobbit), Sean Maher (Firefly, Serenity), Daniel Sharman (Teen Wolf), Gareth David-Lloyd (TorchwoodDoctor Who), Naoko Mori (Torchwood) and more.
