Which Fox TV series is heading to San Diego Comic-Con International 2016?

Great news today (20/6/16) for those lucky enough to attend San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 this July as Fox has announced the thirteen television series panels they have scheduled for Comic-Con. The one I’m most excited about is of course Prison Break, I was skeptical at first about Fox reviving the series as I wondered if there was anything left to tell. Surprisingly after I watched the first official trailer for the new series, due to air next year, I was actually excited especially when I saw the old gang was back including someone I thought was dead.

Then of course their is Bones, I loved this series from the very beginning and it will certainly be a tearful panel as cast, crew and fans bid farewell with their last panel as Bones ends with its 12th season.


Also the series that I secretly love-Scream Queens, it’s both ridiculous and ingenious at the same time, I can’t wait to see what the second season has in store and of course to finally find out if a certain character survived.


Lastly the panel for Rocky Horror Picture Show will definitely be the most fun panel as I can imagine everyone doing the Time Warp. I mean it’s not everyday you get to dance at a panel at San Diego Comic-Con International.


If you dare you can watch the pilot screening for The Exorcist which will be screened during San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 along with Son of Zorn. I’m not sure about The Exorcist but I loved the trailer for Son of Zorn, it’s definitely one to watch.

Salem finished filming the third series earlier this year in April and will air during Halloween week this October. Make sure you dress up in your Witch outfits for this panel and celebrate with the cast and crew and we might even get to see an exclusive first look of the third series.


Even Seth Gabel and Shane West are both excited to see everyone at San Diego Comic-Con Interntional 2016.
