The casts and creators of “Scream Queens” will face off with “American Horror Story” Freak Show” and “Hotel,” as Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Styler Samuels and Keke Palmer will gather with “AHS'” Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Matt Bomer for a panel session, which will feature the world premiere of Ryan Murphy’s Fox horror-comedy anthology series.

Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Lyndie Greenwood and the exec producers of “Sleepy Hollow” will present a first sneak peek to Season 3, while new Fox drama “Minority Report” will also present a special screening, plus a Q&A with the cast and producers, in anticipation of its fall premiere.

Denis Leary’s summer FX series “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll” will also make its first appearance at the Con, with Leary and cast members Elizabeth Gillies, John Corbett, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales on a panel.

“Damien,” upcoming on A&E, will debut at Con with exec producer Mazzara, plus cast members Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Megalyn Echikunwoke, and Omid Abtahi for a first look at the new satanic drama via a Q&A with the cast and producers.

“Salem’s” cast including Shane West, Janet Montgomery, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Iddo Goldberg and the exec producer-creators Brannon Braga and Adam Simon will take a look back at Season 2 during a moderated discussion and audience Q&A.

“Bob’s Burgers” and “The Simpsons” will be back at the convention — “Bob’s Burgers” will have a panel with never-before-seen footage, while “Simpsons” will show a sneak peek behind “Treehouse of Horror XXVI.” The two staples will be in good animated company with McFarlane’s first-ever Comic-Con comedy block panel, which will feature “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and a first-look at Fox’s 2016 series “Bordertown.

20th Century Fox TV will also have a two-story Fox booth at the convention center, hosting talent rotating through for autograph signings, giveaways and more.
