San Diego Comic-Con 2020: The Best Panels To Watch On Day 4

It may be different than all other editions before it, but this year's San Diego Comic-Con has been just as joyous. 

Dubbed Comic-Con@Home due to its history-making virtual format, the free-to-watch convention has brought pop culture fans some truly killer news in the three days it's run so far. The first three days of 2020's San Diego Comic-Con dropped trailers for The Walking Dead: World Beyond and Archer season 11, a first look at Hulu's Helstrom, news about Fear the Walking Dead season 6, intel on Van Helsing season 5, the announcement of The Boys season 3, the reveal of a Vikings Easter egg you probably never knew existed, and so much more. 

The fourth day of the con — Saturday, July 25, 2020 — is poised to continue that hot streak. From a slew of television talks to a trio of movie-focused presentations, here are the best panels to watch on day four of Comic-Con@Home.

The television panels you'll want to check out during SDCC@Home on Saturday, July 25

Since a number of film studios — i.e., essentially all of the ones that typically put on massive Hall H panels that announce half a dozen upcoming projects apiece — are sitting out from Comic-Con@Home, it's made the event's schedule television-panel-heavy. That's certainly no cause for complaint, however, as the TV shows dropping panels during day four of the digital SDCC are the definition of "hype-worthy."

Start of your day-four viewing session with a panel for The Simpsons, beginning at 11 AM PT (2 PM ET, 7 PM BST). Then, prepare for a back-to-back animation bonanza with presentations for American Dad! and Family Guy. Shift gears to tune into panels for For All Mankind, the thrilling Apple TV+ sci-fi series; Brave New World, the sci-fi dystopian drama that recently premiered on NBCUniversal's Peacock streaming service; The Order, Netflix's horror-drama show that debuted its second season in June 2020; What We Do in the Shadows, the laugh-out-loud-funny mockumentary comedy based on the 2014 film of the same name; and NOS4A2, AMC's spooktacular show about a seemingly immortal, child-snatching man.

Other TV panels scheduled for Saturday, July 25, 2020 during Comic-Con@Home are for Stumptown, Lovecraft Country, and Wynonna Earp. Don't miss out.
