Something wicked must be brewing in San Diego, as Fox Television has promised a first-time appearance from FX series American Horror Story during Comic-Con. In fact, the members of last season’s coven—including Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates, through to Sarah Paulson and Emma Roberts—will make an appearance.
In a press release, Fox also promised 24‘s Kiefer Sutherland, who will arrive for a 24 retrospective, as well as more first-time witchery from Salem and Witches of East End.
As for American Horror Story, Fox is offering a retrospective panel on the show’s last season along with some “exclusive secrets” from the set of the next show, AHS: Freak Show, though there will not be new footage.
Bones, Sleepy Hollow, and Sons of Anarchy will all return as well, with appearances from Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (who executive produce Sleepy Hollow and work on the Star Trek and recent Spider-Man movies). There will also be a first look at TNT’s Legends, which stars Sean Bean (Game of Thrones) as a deep cover agent for the FBI.
Fox’s animation block of Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad, and Bob’s Burgers (with H. John Benjamin and new footage in tow) will also feature, along with a table read of the pilot of Fox’s newest animated show, Brickleberry.
