This morning, Twentieth Century Fox TV announced its panel lineup for this year’s Comic-Con. Returning this year are the animated favorites: American Dad, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Futurama, and The Simpsons. Also introduced will be the much-anticipated Sleepy Hollow, including a screening of the pilot.
Disappointing to not see American Horror Story on this list, given earlier reports Ryan Murphy was looking forward to finally bringing it to SDCC this year. Also a no-show is It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, which is moving to the FXX network this year.
Notably included is the first Comic-Con appearance by How I Met Your Mother, which is headed into its ninth and final season. It’s about time, NPH!
Sadly, no Jason Siegel on the list of guests for that panel.
[UPDATE 1] It appears as if the entire HIMYM cast will be on hand, including Jason Segel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
[UPDATE 2] First, yes Jeremy wrote “Siegel” instead of “Segel”. He fixed this, and as his punishment he was forced to watch “Dracula’s Lament” 100 times.
Second, as our astute reader kerrydixon mentioned below in the comments, FX last year announced its panels separately from the Fox TV panels. So, there’s still hope for fans of American Horror Story and It’s Always Sunny, as well as other popular FX shows such as Archer and Wilfred. Again, this is Jeremy’s fault, which is absolutely redonkulous.
