AUSTIN, Texas — Editor’s note: The related video features appearances from the 2019 ATX Television Festival.

The 2020 ATX Television Festival announced additional programming for their ninth festival on Thursday, and that includes some exciting TV reunions.

Those include reunions from two comedies from creator/driector/executive producer Bill Lawrence: “Scrubs” and “Cougar Town,” which was co-created by Kevin Biegel. 

Lawrence will join “Scrubs” stars Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke, John C. McGinley, Judy Reyes, Neil Flynn and Christa Miller for a reunion panel celebrating 10 years since the series ended. Lawrence and Biegel will also join “Cougar Town” stars Josh Hopkins, Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Brian Van Holt and Robert Clendenin to celebrate five years since the series finale.

Additionally, Season 9 of the festival will feature a panel for The CW’s new drama “Nancy Drew,” which has been renewed for a second season. The show follows the iconic character played by Kennedy McMann as she plans to leave her hometown for college but finds herself drawn into a supernatural murder mystery. Panelists for this feature have not yet been announced.

The fun doesn’t end there! Another panel will revolve around the TBS original “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” in which series creatives will talk about the process of “blending current events and comedy to produce a weekly, late-night news satire show in an era of particularly charged politics.” These panelists will also be announced later.

Comedy Central is also joining in on the festival.

The festival will feature a screening of “The Other Two,” followed by a question-and-answer session with cast and creatives, who will be announced at a later date. This comedy series, which has also been renewed for a second season, follows two “floundering millennial siblings” as they learn how to handle their 13-year-old brother’s newfound fame.

And Comedy Central’s hit series “Drunk History” is returning to the festival for a fourth year. Derek Waters, creator, executive producer, host and actor, will be joined by an unannounced cast of special guests.

Previously announced programming includes:

  • “Parenthood” 10-year reunion and script reading with cast and creatives
  • “Justified” writers room reunion
  • “Oz” retrospective with Tom Fontana, Dean Winters and Lee Tergesen
  • “L.A. Confidential” unaired pilot screening and Q&A
  • “Female Forward” panel with NBC entertainment co-presidents of scripted programming, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta
  • Returning panelists Gloria Calderon Kellett (“One Day at a Time”), Tanya Saracho (“Vida”), Meredith Averill (“Locke & Key”) and Lauren Whitney (president, television, Spyglass Media Group)
