FX appears to be scaling down their San Diego Comic-Con presence this year, with no panels for American Horror Story, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, or the upcoming Legion in sight. They are, however, still very much on board — and they’re bringing back two favorites.
No word yet on dates or rooms for the panels, but attendees will be able to find The Strain (our guess: Hall H on Sunday again) with cast-members Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Richard Sammel, and Miguel Gomez — as well as executive producers Carlton Cuse and Chris Hogan, for a look at exclusive footage and a Q&A.
They’re also bringing back Archer, which was recently renewed for three seasons — so you can pretty much also pencil the series into your Comic-Con plans for the next few years as well. This year, they’re bringing along the voice cast of H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, and Lucky Yates, as well as EP’s Adam Reed, Matt Thompson, and Co-Exective Producer Casey Willis.
From the press release, here are the panel descriptions:
The Strain: Screening and Q&A

Jon Benjamin (“Sterling Archer”), Aisha Tyler (“Lana Kane”), Jessica Walter (“Malory Archer”), Chris Parnell (“Cyril Figgis”), Judy Greer (“Cheryl/Carol Tunt”), Amber Nash (“Pam Poovey”) and Lucky Yates (“Dr. Algernop Krieger”), plus Creator / Executive Producer / Writer Adam Reed (“Ray Gillette”), Executive Producer Matt Thompson and Co-Executive Producer Casey Willis as they discuss bringing this animated series to life.
