It’s still six months away, but the minds behind the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo are already hard at work on the 2016 edition of the event.

Organizers announced Tuesday that Game of Thrones actors Jack Gleeson and Finn Jones have been booked for the show. Gleeson is best known as the reviled King Joffrey from the hit HBO series. Jones plays the queen’s brother, Loras Tyrell.

Ticket sales for the event were also announced, with sales scheduled to start at 10 a.m. on Nov. 7 at the Expo website. Last year, VIP packages sold out within minutes.

Earlier this month, Lucy Lawless — best known as Xena, Warrior Princess — was announced as the expo’s first celebrity guest for 2016.

The 2016 expo runs from April 28 to May 1 at Stampede Park.
