The first wave of celebrity guests has been announced for the 2018 Wizard World Tulsa pop culture convention, scheduled Sept. 7-9 at Cox Business Center in downtown Tulsa.

The guest list so far includes a returning favorite, Henry Winkler of “Happy Days.” And, per the guest list, the television series “Sons of Anarchy” and “Charmed” will be well represented.

From “Sons of Anarchy”: Ron Perlman and Ryan Hurst. Perlman also played the title character in two “Hellboy” movies and starred in the TV series “Beauty and the Beast.” Other than “Sons of Anarchy,” Hurst is perhaps best known for his roles in “Saving Private Ryan” and “Remember the Titans.”

From “Charmed”: Holly Marie Combs, Brian Krause, Drew Fuller and Charisma Carpenter. Carpenter is best known for playing Cordelia Chase in the TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.”

Additional guests will be announced prior to the convention.

Wizard World stages a series of pop culture conventions around the country. Tulsa was a tour stop from 2014 through 2016, and Wizard World is returning to Tulsa this year after a one-year stay in Oklahoma City.
