New York Comic Con 2015 Logo

List of TV shows and TV networks attending the 2015 NYCC. The official list of television channels (broadcast, cable, and streaming services) that will be present at the 2015 New York Comic Con continues to roll out and it is impressive. So far, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, TNT, FX, WGN, Disney XD, HBO, Cinemax, and Netflix will all have TV shows and/or their stars in attendance. The TV shows include The X-Files, Jessica Jones, Supergirl, Blindspot, Legends of Tomorrow, Game of Thrones, Minority Report, and many others. There will also be animated TV series from Marvel and Disney including Star Wars making appearances via panels.

What was surprising is that AMC and The Walking Dead are absent from the list of attendees. For the last two years, they have both been in attendance. Perhaps NYCC Press they will announce their inclusion closer to the start date of the Comic-con.

First, the official press release from Fox on The X-Files at the 2015 New York Comic-con:

Twentieth Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Company will debut the first episode of the eagerly anticipated THE X-FILES event series on Tuesday, Oct. 6 in a World Premiere TV Screening at MIPCOM in Cannes, France. The episode – the first in the six-episode event series – is entitled “My Struggle” and will be unveiled by series creator and executive producer Chris Carter at the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals.

On Saturday, Oct. 10, Fox brings the episode to the Main Stage of the Javits Center during the sold-out fan event New York Comic Con for its U.S premiere, followed by a Q&A with Carter, the episode’s writer/director, and series star David Duchovny.

THE X-FILES returns to FOX with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 24, following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, and continuing with its time period premiere on Monday, Jan. 25 (8/7c).

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprise their iconic roles as Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully in the upcoming event series, which will encompass a mixture of stand-alone investigative episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening episode, Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars, including Joel McHale (“Community”), Robbie Amell (“The Flash”), Lauren Ambrose (“Dig,” “Six Feet Under”), Annabeth Gish (“The Bridge”), Annet Mahendru (“The Americans”), Rhys Darby (“Flight of the Conchords”), Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man.” Three of the episodes are written and directed by Chris Carter, with the remaining new episodes written and directed by original series veterans Glen Morgan, Darin Morgan and James Wong.

THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny), as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.
