But now we can pack up our goatees and leave the darkest timeline, because the quirky comedy returns on October 19 (8:30 p.m. ET) and if these newly released promo pictures are any indication, it's just as kooky as it always was. There's even a cameo from "Animal Practice's" Crystal, who reprises her scene-stealing role as Annie's Boobs. The real test will be when the premiere actually airs, of course, but at Comic-Con, the show's new executive producers promised that their priority was "keeping it this weird, wonderful gem it's always been."
