Get More: Comic-Con, Exclusive, News

Twentieth Century Fox Television is taking no less than 13 new and familiar shows to next month’s San Diego Comic-Con, TVLine has learned — and among the production studio’s assemblage are both Bones leads (expectant Emily Deschanel included!), cast members from Glee, Futurama‘s Matt Groening, Billy West and Katey Sagal, and Jason Isaacs, the star of the midseason NBC drama Awake.

Also being showcased by Twentieth Century Fox TV are the midseason Bones spin-off The Finder; the much-anticipated, Steven Spielberg-produced Terra Nova; and the animated series The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, The Cleveland Show, American Dad, Allen Gregory (new) and Napoleon Dynamite (new).

Special treats to watch for include a sneak peek at the all-new Family Guy episode “Stewie Goes for a Drive,” featuring guest voice Ryan Reynolds; never-seen footage of Futurama reimagined as Japanese anime; a preview of American Dad‘s Season 7 opener featuring Cee Lo Green as a singing hot tub; and a look at The Cleveland Show’s Die Hard parody.

  • Great… Glee at a comic-con. What #@%^@ sense does that make? Seriously Fox won’t be happy until they’ve reserved a table for skinheads at an affirmative action convention.

          • Agreed. I get that comic book fans are mad that their festival has become mainstream but its been a platform for television and movies for atleast 5 years now, lets not pretend the shift is recent.

        • I completely agree. Having Glee at Comic Con is beyond me. Apart from the fact that I think the show is stupid, I don’t really understand what does it have to do with Comic Con.

  • Glee?

  • To be fair – I feel exactly the same about Bones (Boreanaz at least has some sci-fi and comic cred) but the show has NOTHING to do with comics and only the most flimsy of connections to sci-fi (basically, sci-fi is introduced to the show when writers get lazy and want new devices for their actors to play with).

    I personally love Bob’s Burgers – makes no sense being there though. Simpsons and Futurama get a pass in that they actually have comic books. Family Guy, Cleveland and American dad do not. Terra Nova *I guess* gets in on sci-fi value, but again – for a comic-con pretty weak.

  • Glee?!!! Damn,was this considered because it is a comedy of tragic proportions how popular it is and now they wanna come out with comic books?!!
    Only Terra Nova, Simpsons & Futurama deserve to be in the Con. I don’t know why they have allowed the others to be showcased there!

  • Glee was there last year too, so not surprised to see them return.

    • FRINGE is not produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, which this post is about.

  • Wait does this mean that Fringe WON’T be at Comic-con?????

  • Please, we need news about Fringe.

    Comment by Mark – June 17, 2011 11:35 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Fringe is a Warner Bros show – in the instance of Comic Con, they will be the ones to announce when and if they are going. Not FOX. I suspect that WB will put out a release soon about all that they are sending to Comic Con.

  • Glee is a show about a group of nerds and misfits trying to fit in. Dude seriously have you ever been to Comic con?

    Comment by Ryan – June 17, 2011 12:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • ^this Even if Glee weren’t about geeks and misfits, SDCC has been going mainstream for a while now. It’s been less and less about the comics for years now and, lets face it, they’re bringing in more money by bringing in big name shows and movies.

  • BONES!!!

  • The TRUE BLOOD panel is on Friday as well.

    Comment by Liz – June 17, 2011 01:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Ummmm when something draws in 130,000 people every year it’s kind of hard not be mainstream.

    And The Glee panal has been a hot ticket at comic-con for the past 2 years. Why wouldn’t they do it again.

    If your too “underground” for comic-con then quit your whining and start your own convention. I’m sure it will be a big hit.

    Why can’t people just enjoy stuff without haters complaining it doesn’t belong there.

  • The Finder? Give me a break….. this will be a piece of crap
    as was the pilot.
    The Finder will not last for more than 2 months…. just another
    causality of FOX.

  • Wow. Most of you need to grow up. So what? Glee will be there again. It’s not a big deal. It’s not like you HAVE to see them. I’ve never been to comic-con but I know enough about it because, I am too a comic nerd. There are enough things for you all to do when The Glee panal is up. Same to the person dissing on Bones.

    As for the Bones panal, I hope Emily D. goes but she will be around seven months pregnant by then so I don’t know how well the odds are that she will show up. HH said it was up to her and she stated (someone else showed me this) That she will not be going to ANY events until after the birth of her child. Which I believe is a good thing. I would rather have her resting and getting ready for the baby then going out and giving us photos.

    Now moving on to the Finder…Hated that ep. It had LOWER ratings then Hannah did for Bones. The only reason they show was picked up was because they needed a show to fill Emily’s leave once she has the baby. I already know a ton of people who will not be watching that show once we lose Bones again due to her leave.

    Now all that said. GROW UP! Don’t whine about who is going to CC. Really? That’s just low.
