Well this is big news. TVLine is reporting that for the 1st time ever, the CBS hit “How I Met Your Mother” will be heading to San Diego in July. The upcoming season is the last for the comedy and it seems that the network really wants to dial it up. You can expect Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders and Alyson Hannigan to be on the panel and an exclusive look at the sitcom’s final season.
TVLine has information on other 20th Century Fox panels as well. Their plans include panels for Bones and Sons of Anarchy which will feature the entire cast and Kurt Sutter. They’re reporting that “Sleepy Hollow” will screen their pilot episode as well and that the new “Murder Police” animated series will host a Q&A.
Here’s the rest of the list for 20th Century Fox:
- Bob’s Burgers – producers and cast members
- Brickleberry – producers and cast members
- Futurama — creator Matt Groening, producers and cast members (including Katey Segal, Sons of Anarchy), who’ll perform scenes from an upcoming episode
- The Simpsons – Groening and producers
- Family Guy – producers and cast members (including Seth Green, Dads)
- American Dad — producers and cast members
If you’re a fan of “Glee” though, bad news. They will not be attending Comic-Con this summer.
