Comic-Con is just around the corner, and we're dying to hear about the full schedule so we can find out what's in store for us in San Diego next month. But while the details are still to be announced, some info has slipped out, according to The Watcher, and there are a few surprises.

Maureen Ryan's Comic-Con spies have been able to confirm that the following shows will have a presence, though there's no news yet on which actors and creators will attend panels for their shows. Among the first-timers—Castle (which we'd have thought would have been there last year, considering star Nathan Fillion's geek status), Sons of Anarchy, Archer, No Ordinary Family and White Collar.

Here are some of the programs that will be presenting panels this summer:

Archer (FX, July 23) Possible panel: Being Human (BBC America) The Big Bang Theory (CBS) Burn Notice (USA) Castle (ABC) Chuck (NBC) Dexter (Showtime) Eureka (Syfy) Possible panel: Look Around You (BBC America) Psych (USA) Hawaii Five-O (new CBS show) It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FX, July 25) No Ordinary Family (new ABC show) Sons of Anarchy (FX, July 25) Spartacus (Starz, July 23) White Collar (USA)
