20th Century Fox TV is bringing thirteen shows to this year’s Comic-Con, including 24: Legacy, Prison Break, and Bones. Find out which castmembers and creators are coming!
This year’s San Diego Comic-Con is just weeks away and we are SO excited!
According to Comic-Con International, attendee badges are in the mail this week. In fact, we just received our badges today *TWIRLS*
Hopefully your hotel situation has been sorted too, which now means we’re waiting on the official schedule of panels and who we can expect to find in the Exhibit Hall.
There have been rumors and some unofficial announcements (SDCC Unofficial Blog has a great running list HERE), but for the most part we’re still waiting on the majority to studios and networks to announce their line-ups.
Surprisingly, FOX is the first out of the gate to announce all the television shows that are coming to SDCC this year. I say “surprising” because a few months ago, 20th Century Fox made the (controversial) announcement that, because of concerns over piracy, they wouldn’t have any panels for upcoming films.
Not to fear because the TV division has a line-up of THIRTEEN shows coming our way, including cast and creators from the 24 and Prison Break reboots, old faves like The Simpsons and Bones (the show’s last SDCC appearance), and the upcoming Rocky Horror Picture Show reboot.
Take a look at the full list below!
