The Bob’s Burgers San Diego Comic-Con trailer was full of insight for the upcoming season, but one of the highlights was the announcement that this season’s Christmas episode will be an hour long musical special.
Creator Loren Bouchard said “It should feel almost like a little Christmas movie. It’s kind of epic. It’s got an hourlong feel to it.” Bouchard also announced that Adam Driver (Girls) would be in the special, which should hit screens this December.
Some other cool announcements from the panel included a sneak peek into the premiere episode that will be “completely fan-drawn”. It will feature a new style in every scene. They took fan animations earlier this year in three categories- title sequence animations, background static panel, and character static panel. When talking about the special episode Bouchard said “It’s so fun to hear these guys’ words coming out of a different design.”
Expect to see Bob’s Burgers making an appearance on The Simpson’s couch as well sometime this season.
Catch the 8th season of Bob’s Burgers on FOX on Oct. 1.
