Paleyfest 2017 announces full festival lineup

Paleyfest is always one of the highlights of Winter for those of us addicted to TV, and this year is delivery a particularly good lineup.

Our Favorites? Well, this year the festival will see the swan songs to fan favorites Orphan Black and Pretty Little Liars, as well as panels from new favorites Westworld, and This Is Us. The CW promises a frenzy when they drop their entire superhero lineup onto one Superhero matinee panel with talent from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Scandal will celebrate its 100th episode, and The Walking Dead returns to tell fans absolutely nothing (because has any show kept more secret than this one? We think not). And of course American Horror Story: Roanoke finishes off the entire event.
