Legion, The Strain, and Archer panels heading for Comic-Con
'Legion' season 2 details will be revealed
It’s almost that time of year again when members of all different fandoms make the pilgrimage to San Diego for the International Comic-Con. The latest announcement comes from FX, which revealed its plans for the epic convention involving Legion, The Strain, and Archer.
It’ll begin with the network’s vampire drama on Thursday, July 20 with a discussion panel from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. PT in Ballroom 20. The event will showcase “a sneak peek at never-before-seen footage” as the series enters its fourth and final season. Showrunner Carlton Cuse will be on hand with executive producer Chuck Hogan and cast members Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Kevin Durand, Ruta Gedmintas, Miguel Gomez, Richard Sammel, and Max Charles.
Season 4 will premiere on FX Sunday, July 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
The Legion panel will follow The Strain in Ballroom 20 with an hourlong discussion and Q&A about season 2. Showrunner Noah Hawley and executive producers John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, and Jeph Loeb are bringing Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, and Amber Midthunder.
FX was quick to renew Legion for a second season before the sixth episode aired, noting what president Eric Schrier called “a stunning achievement.” The finale left us with a lot of questions, and hopefully we’ll get some answers come the Con.
Then, on Friday, July 21, Archer fans can head to the Indigo Ballroom from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. PT. FX promised “a VERY special, not-to-be-missed secret guest” will be on hand with H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates, executive producer Matt Thompson, and co- executive producer Casey Willis.
Archer closed out its eighth season in May.
