San Diego Comic-Con 2018 was the year of TV trailers. It's amazing to see how big the world of television has become over the last handful of years with Netflix, HBO, Showtime, and the usual networks adding brand-new content. There were some shows that were expected and then some brand-new surprises that nobody saw coming. With that being said, we have compiled every single one of the must-see TV trailers from Comic-Con below, so you don't have to go searching for them.
Things kicked off early when Netflix, who skipped out on all the Hall H madness, dropped a teaser for Stranger Things Season 3 that goes inside Hawkins' new shopping mall. It certainly caught everyone's attention, especially when the end of the video teased a summer 2019 release date for the show's return. The heat really got turned up though when the first trailer of the Con officially dropped. And it's possibly the best sneak peek released over the past four days. A kickass Robin showed up in the hyper-violent first trailer for DC's Titans, and he literally says, 'F*** Batman!' It was a shocker that got things off to a grand start in San Diego.
The Titans trailer was followed by the first full-length look at FX's Sons of Anarchy spinoff Mayans MC, which looks like it has the potential to be another huge hit for Kurt Sutter. AMC released a new look at Jimmy's descent into becoming Saul Goodman in the Better Call Saul Season 4 trailer. And perhaps the biggest TV news came when Disney and Lucasfilm announced Star Wars: The Clone Wars was returning with an extended trailer that revealed the big news.
The extended Nightflyers trailer showed off a better look at George R.R. Martin's sci-fi horror series. And Doctor Who Season 11 let Jodie Whitaker show her stuff as the new Time Lord while introducing her best friend. AMC owned Thursday morning when it released back-to-back trailers for Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead. And Marvel fans were quite happy with the Iron Fist Season 2 teaser, with some calling the 90 seconds of footage better than the whole first season.
Star Trek: Discovery got a new trailer that teased the emergence of Young Spock, and gave us a big wet alien sneeze. On the horror side of things, we hot a new look ay Lore Season 2, Preacher dropped an insane Season 3 trailer, and we got our first look at Paul W.S. Anderson's Origin trailer. Stan Against Evil came through with a kickass trailer for Season 3. Vikings Season 5 midseason premiere trailer brought plenty of thrills. And The Purge TV show also got a new trailer that was just down right scary.
On the comedy side of the Con, we got a first look at new Family Guy episodes and the next Simpsons Treehouse of Terror. Speaking of the Simpsons, Netflix released a new trailer for Matt Groening's medieval animated comedy Disenchanted that seemed to go over really well.
Saturday belonged to The CW. They came packing fresh trailers for Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, offering looks at new villains, fresh faces and incoming storylines. The CW also dropped an awesome retrospective trailer for Supernatural, leading into Season 14, and fans got a look at what's in store for Riverdale in Season 3. The CW also gave fans a look at Legacies, which continues the saga started in The Vampire Diaries and continued in The Originals.
Kids definitely weren't left out of the equation. An action-packed sneak peek at Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles packed quite a wallop. DC fans got their first look at Young Justice: Outsiders, which has been revived for DC's new streaming service launching later this year. The Voltron Legendary Defender Season 7 trailer decimated fans with its hard-hitting animated violence. Nickelodeon gave everyone a first look at their animated TV movie Invader Zim, which brings the annoying alien back to the small screen. Perhaps the biggest news was when Cartoon Network dropped the trailer for Steven Universe: The Movie, announcing it for the first time.
Titans Comic-Con Trailer
The trailer for Titans was also one of the most anticipated trailers of this year's San Diego Comic-Con and fans are still talking about it. The show is a gritty take on the Teen Titans and it proves itself right off the bat. Robin can be seen in the trailer saying, "F*ck Batman," which should tell you where this one is going. The Titans trailer may not be safe for the family to watch.
Stranger Things Season 3 Comic-Con Trailer
Stranger Things and Netflix didn't really have a presence at Comic-Con, aside from turning a wayward bus stop into the Upside Down. But right before the big event kicked off, Netflix launched a new teaser that goes inside Hawkins' new mall, and shows Steve working at the ice cream shop. It's a fun little teaser video that will make any 80s kid nostalgic for the mall. But then we get to the end of this sneak peek, and it's hinted at that Season 3 may not premiere until Summer 2019. Which certainly bombed out a lot of fans.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars Revival Comic-Con Trailer

Star Trek Discovery Season 2 Comic-Con Trailer
The Star Trek Discovery Season 2 trailer wasn't really one of the most anticipated of the Comic-Con weekend, but there's been a lot of talk about it since it premiered.
