FX Networks is only bringing two major panels to this year’s San Diego Comic Con. The Strain, and Archer will both have panels and a huge presence at this year’s SDCC. However, many of the big hitters will be absent from the panel line up, including the new Comic Book series, Legion. Also mission will be the hit show, American Horror Story.
However, just because there will not be a panel, doesn’t mean that we will not get to see our favorite shows brought to life. In fact, FX is bringing the huge FXhibition back to SDCC this year, and with it some very unique experiences. Hilton Bayfront Park will play host during San Diego Comic-Con July 21-24, 2016 with groundbreaking activations and installations of fan-favorite shows Archer, American Horror Story, The Strain, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.
Here’s the line up:
- American Horror Story: See the props from the show, including the Hotel Mattress as a Barcelona Bench. Also guests will be able to take a VR experience unlike any other that takes participants on a unique journey through terrifying encounters inspired by the hair-raising series. The AHS Fearless VR Experience will be an opportunity for American Horror Story fans to become a part of their favorite show and test the boundaries of their own fear.
- On Saturday, July 23, FX will host a broadcast of Archer Live! at the FXHibition space as part of a special “silent disco” featuring light up headphones, setting the park aglow for a late night screening. The first 300 people who arrive will receive anArcher 4-in-1 blanket.
- It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s Paddy’s Pub will offer an escape from the heat providing water on tap for fans to stay cool throughout the day. A real bar will house the water taps and consumers will receive a branded collapsible cup to enjoy their drink.
- The Strain will erect a 25-foot “infected” Lady Liberty statue.
There will be tons of information in the coming days, including a chance to pre-register for your spots in some of the biggest lines.
