While we have no idea what to expect from either of FX’s “American Horror Story: Freak Show” or their upcoming vampire series, which comes from the brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro, “The Strain”, I think it’s safe to assume that they’re both going to deliver a solid dose of horror to the small screen. But that’s not the only place we’ll be seeing the two new shows as FX has announced that they’ll be making an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this year!
Mixing old and new elements, the AHS panel on July 26th will look back on AHS: Coven and also include a sneak peek of the upcoming AHS: Freak Show, followed by a Q&A with executive producer Tim Minear and a host of cast members. On the following day, The Strain panel will feature a screening of the show’s entire third episode with a subsequent Q&A that will include creator/author Guillermo del Toro and the entire cast. We have full details on both panels below:
