how i met your mother san diego comic con 2013 cbs Comic Con 2013: 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Bones' and more 20th Century Fox TV shows

For the first time ever, “How I Met Your Mother” will be at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2013. The CBS sitcom is one of 11 shows produced by 20th Century Fox Television that will feature at the big event. Other programs expected to have panels include “Bones,” “The Simpsons,” “Sons of Anarchy” and the new series, “Sleepy Hollow.”

Most of the shows included on the list are SDCC veterans, but “HIMYM” is a big exception to that. As a sitcom, it’s not exactly standard fare for the big festival of all things nerdy. But the convention has increasingly become about promotion — and “How I Met Your Mother” can use that going into its 9th and final season. The full “HIMYM” cast — Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan — are scheduled to attend, along with executive producers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas and Pamela Fryman.

Check out the full (but subject to change) schedule of 20th Century Fox TV shows coming to Comic-Con below:
