The HIMYM event, which will take place on Saturday, July 20, is part of 20th Century Fox’s jam-packed Comic-Con line-up, which also includes sessions for Bones (featuring David Boreanaz, creator Hart Hanson and exec producer Stephen Nathan on Friday, July 19) and Sons of Anarchy (featuring the entire cast and series creator Kurt Sutter on Sunday, July 21).

The studio’s two newest shows will make their Comic-Con debuts at the fan fest, as well. Sleepy Hollow will screen its pilot episode, and the animated series Murder Police will host a Q&A with the cast and creators.

Other 20th Century Fox series scheduled for panels — as well as who’ll be up on stage — are:

• 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

    No Cristin Milioti on the panel? That would definitely make it even more interesting.

  2. Steven says:

    I wish they could get more big names to go to New York Comic con.

  3. What does this have to do with comics, fantasy, or science fiction? lol I know, maybe it’s that the story is set in the future and told as a series of flashbacks, lol.

    • the 'Cobie factor' says:

      I think there’s pretty good justification for the HIMYM gang to be at this Comic Con – the timing is good. HIMYM is entering its final season, and they [20th Century] want to get as many fans engaged in this final season as possible – have a strong, solid finish to the series. Also, we don’t want to lose sight of the ‘Cobie factor’. CS will be on a variety of Marvel comic driven movies next year 2014+ , so her being at Comic Con is a really good fit – now is the time to get the entire HIMYM team out there, with Cobie as lead.

  4. A Young Samaritan says:

    Didn’t Glee do this last year as well and then announced like one-two weeks before SDCC that they were gonna have a panel after all?

  5. Steve F. says:

    I bet this will all be in Ballroom 20 at SDCC – meaning it will be nigh impossible to get in (unless you have the patience to be in line for hours). Also, a bit surprised that Glee doesn’t have a panel this year… yet.

  6. Rachel says:

    Awesome…wish Castle would have a panel…

    • Steve F. says:

      ABC, NBC, and the rest of CBS have yet to announce their SDCC programming – but I’m sure that there will be a panel for Castle. Fillion’s got that fanbase, after all!

  7. Alex says:

    Hi REBECCA, what about HOMELAND?????

  8. Sarah says:

    I’m happy that Bones will be there, especially since this might be the last season, but I’m a bit bummed that Emily won’t be.

  9. cas says:

    As much as I love HIMYM, I doubt they will tell us anything that interesting. On the weekend of Barney and Robin’s wedding, Ted miraculously decides he no longer loves Robin after 8 years, meets the Mother, falls in love with her in 2 days, and they all live happily ever after. At least the ride will be entertaining. Glad SOA is there too!

  10. Matthew says:

    Glee is not present at Comic Con because it is a terrible show and has nothing to do with anything that would be relevant at comic con. Them having a pannel is always, ALWAYS, a terrible idea. Fact.

    • Miranda says:

      ^This. The show has become tedious and tiresome, and the back and forth character development alone means this show needs to be off the air… Unfortunately…

      Also, shouldn’t it be legen… wait for it… dary! That’s what Barney always says, not legen- dary.

  11. yo says:

    lmao…last year they wanted to kick Glee off too but they somehow trolled their way on stage & no one gave a sh1t. After crap ratings and new characters no one cares about, no wonder they were left off again. Leave Comic Con for the good shows, with a bright future!

  12. Liliana says:

    I love that HIMYM will go but I hate that Glee won’t :'( Glee is my favorite of them all
