FX will be returning to Comic Con this year, showcasing three of their original series with panels in San Diego this July. While I was really hoping we'd hear word that American Horror Story would be featured in a panel at SDCC, that doesn't appear to be the case. On the bright side, SAMCRO will return! In addition to panels for Wilfred and Archer, FX's biker drama Sons of Anarchy will also be back to Comic Con for a panel.
Wilfred returns (officially) for its second season tomorrow night and the U.S. adaptation of the Australian series is also among the three FX shows set up for a panel at SDCC. Elijah Wood and Jason Gann will be in attendance for a screening, along with some of their co-stars and executive producers. The Wilfred panel will include a Q&A and a screening. That's set to take place on Thursday, as is the Archer panel, which will also include a screening in addition to a Q&A with series creator Adam Reed and some of the cast.
Last but certainly not least is the Sunday panel for Sons of Anarchy, which will bring series creator Kurt Sutter and the cast of the drama back to SDCC. Given how things left off for Season 4, it's likely that fans will be very eager to hear what Sutter and the cast have to say about the approaching fifth season of the series.
Below is the information FX released on the panels.
Thursday, July 12
FOX Booth Signing – 1:30-2:30pm
Panel – 4:00-5:00pm: Screening and Q &A: Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings) stars as “Ryan,” a young man struggling unsuccessfully to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with "Wilfred," his neighbor’s canine pet, played by Jason Gann (The Wedge), who co-created and starred in the Australian version ofWilfred in 2007. While everyone else sees Wilfred as just a dog, Ryan sees a crude and surly man in cheap dog suit. Join Elijah and Jason with Wilfred co-stars Fiona Gubelmann (Don’t Trust the B** in Apt 23) and Dorian Brown (Roommates) as well as showrunner/executive producer David Zuckerman (Family Guy) and executive producer/director Randall Einhorn (The Office) as they discuss bringing this unique, live-action comedy to life.

FOX Booth Signing – 2:45-3:45pm
Panel – 5:00-6:00pm: Screening and Q&A. This animated, half-hour comedy revolves around the spy agency known as the International Secret Intelligence Service (ISIS) and the lives of its self-involved employees. Join series creator Adam Reed (Sealab 2021) and the show’s voice-over actors as they discuss their daunting and enigmatic work of espionage, reconnaissance missions, wiretapping and undercover surveillances – which are all actually unmitigated occasions for the ISIS staff to undermine, sabotage and betray each other for personal gain. Panelists include H. Jon Benjamin (Bob’s Burgers) as the highly skilled yet incredibly vain master spy “Sterling Archer”; Aisha Tyler (The Talk) as Archer’s fellow agent and ex-girlfriend “Lana Kane”; Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live) as the easily intimidated comptroller-turned-ISIS-agent, “Cyril Figgis”; Judy Greer (Arrested Development) as the loquacious secretary, “Cheryl Tunt”; and Amber Nash (Frisky Dingo) as the discordant director of human resources for ISIS, “Pam Poovey.”Room: Indigo (Hilton Bayfront).
