FX has big plans for this year’s San Diego Comic Con including the first trip to the sold-out convention for the cast of American Horror Story. FX will once again have a must-see lineup of shows at the Con, with AHS joining fan favorites Archer and Sons of Anarchy at the event as well as the new series The Strain. With Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse, and Chuck Hogan set to join the entire cast at Comic Con, The Strain will undoubtedly draw a huge crowd to the San Diego Comic Con’s Hall H.
FX says Archer will be screening an original short created just for Comic Con along with a new episode of season six. SoA fans will be treated to the first peek at season seven footage and The Strain will debut the third episode along with a recap of the series thus far. American Horror Story is also planning a look back at Coven and a look ahead at Freak Show.
