With San Diego Comic-Con behind us, many are turning their attention to the probably second-largest North American convention: New York Comic Con (and yes, we’re pretty sure it’s second).

The convention kicks off at the Javits Center on October 8-11, whereABC Family will be taking over. The network will be holding back-to-back panels for Stitchers and Pretty Little Liars, as well as a special presentation for Shadowhunters.

Stitchers will kick off Friday, October 9 at 11AM in Room 1A06, where cast members Emma Ishta and Kyle Harris will be on hand do discuss season two and details about the upcoming Halloween special. Then, it’s Pretty Little Liars with stars Troian Bellisario, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, and Sasha Pieterse will discuss the series with Executive Producers Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick and Joseph Dougherty.

Then on Saturday October 10 at 11AM, the upcoming series Shadowhunters, based on the Cassandra Clare series, will head to the stage with stars Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Harry Shum Jr., Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario, and Isaiah Mustafa along with showrunner Ed Decter and Executive Producer McG and Clare.

It’s been a few years since ABC Family graced San Diego Comic-Con with its presence – the last series we can remember was 2011’s The Nine Lives of Chloe King – but this continues the trend of Disney-owned properties heading to New York instead of San Diego that Daredevil kicked off last year. Will New York be getting more Marvel TV again? We’ll just have to wait and see.

You can find a complete list of New York Comic Con announced guests on their site.

    any other SDCC blog readers going to NYCC this year? These are the two cons I end up attending every year, and although living in NY, I feel so much more prepared for SDCC due to all the coverage between this blog and few others…hoping one day the bloggers catch up in dedication for NYCC as you all do for SD
