Grimm has been written off and predicted for cancellation more than a few times, but thanks to a very vocal group of followers who will gladly tune in on Friday nights, the show has continued churning out eccentric and brilliant content on the regular. Today’s Comic-Con panel seems destined to operate as a pretty big thank you from the fans to the stars/ creators and the stars/ creators to the fans.
And brining up the rear for Fox's animation domination is the American Dad panel. The comedy is back at SDCC this year with an exclusive look at the new season and a dais that includes voice talent Wendy Schaal, Rachael MacFarlane, Scott Grimes and Dee Bradley Baker as well as creator/executive producer Mike Barker, creator/executive producer Matt Weitzman and executive producer Steve Callaghan. There will also be the world premiere of a song from the upcoming Christmas episode marking the return of Krampus!
Continuing with the Fox animated comedy block, Family Guy is also back at Comic-Con for a sneak peek at Season 12 as well as what is sure to be a funny (and probably obscene) panel that features cast members Seth Green and Alex Borstein as well as executive producer Rich Appel. Oh, and apparently there will be a few surprise guests. The Simpsons?
How I Met Your Mother is heading into its last season, and today at Comic-Con, it makes its grand debut at the convention center, as the cast and writers convene in the Hilton's Indigo Ballroom to discuss what's in store for the final season, and I'm here to live-blog all the details for you.
This year at SDCC, The Simpsons is celebrating its twenty-fifth season. Twenty-fifth! A quarter of a century! That's insane a and in attendance for the special occasion are creator and legend Matt Groening, executive producer Al Jean, supervising director Mike Anderson and consulting producer David Silverman. There are probably a few big things planned to mark the milestone but fans are going to get to see never-before-seen footage from guest director Guillermo del Toro's episode, “We Put The Spring In Springfield!” Rad.
Bad news everybody, Futurama is making what is probably its last appearance at Comic-Con with the seventh and final season of the animated comedy is coming to an end very soon. It's doooooomed! But before the show goes out in a blaze of glory, they also want to ensure an epic final panel. On the dais for the special occasion is most of Futurama's voice cast, including Billy West, John DiMaggio, Katey Sagal, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Phil LaMarr, and Lauren Tom.
Just like last year, the Archer panel began with a special clip made specifically for the Con and it was hilarious. Pam's helping Sterling shoot a video for the attendees (all unattractive asthmatics according to him) which details his new plan on how to get laid in a room full of geek girls. Instead of intimidating the ladies with his Sterling Archerness, he's going as Tony Stark (mostly) nude! Guess where the core is located?
Continuing with the Adult Swim line-up, the NTSF:SD:SUV panel followed Children's Hospital (just like on TV!) and featured creator and star Paul Scheer, executive producer Jonathan Stern and consulting producer Curtis Gwinn as well as cast members Karen Gillan, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael and the great Martin Starr. What's in store for the police procedural spoof come Season 3?
The fifth season of Children's Hospital is gearing up and in attendance at the Con are the show’s executive producers Jonathan Stern and David Wain (who also moderated) as well as cast members Lake Bell, Erinn Hayes, Ken Marino and Rob Huebel. And of course, star and creator Rob Corddry (or, well, someone else in clown makeup). Nothing like a panel full of comedians.
The Adventure Time panel opened with a sweet Lego version of the titles before creator Pendleton Ward came on stage to introduce the cast in attendance including Jeremy Shada, John DiMaggio, Tom Kenny and Olivia Olson as well as some behind the scenes talent like Kent Osborne, Rebecca Sugar and Adam Muto. And a special guest!
The panel began with an amazing, action packed Regular Show sizzle reel before writer Matt Price came out to host and introduce the rest of the panel. On the dais were Emmy nominated storyboard artists Toby Jones and Calvin Wong as well as resident song writer and supervising director Sean Szeles. Oh, and of course there's the cast, Sam Martin, Bill Salyers and creator JG Quintel.
Sometimes geeky videos devoted to mourning the deaths of fictional characters are made by fans and passed around online. And sometimes those videos are made by the people who make the show themselves, and presented to those geeky fans as a special gift at the epicenter of all things geek, Comic-Con
Thanks to Steven Spielberg’s executive producer credit, much was expected of Falling Skies when it premiered on TNT all the way back in June of 2011, but even so, I’m not sure anyone expected the alien invasion fallout drama to be consistently crush every summer. During most weeks, it’s among the most watched shows cable shows on television, and it’s already been renewed for a fourth season.
Following The Walking Dead is another hugely anticipated TV panel, Game of Thrones. Those of us still reeling from the Red Wedding are likely eager to see what the cast and writers have to say about the bloodbath that was Season 3 and what's ahead for the series' anticipated fourth season.
The Walking Dead, as usual, has pulled out all the stops at Comic-Con this year, releasing a stunning season 4 poster, holding their annual Walking Dead Escape in Petco Park, allowing star Norman Reedus to take over their Instagram Page
