The ATX Television Festival is just around the corner, and the announcements keep on coming.

A farewell to FX’s “Justified” has been added, as well as a panel with producers and cast from “Boy Meets World” and “Girl Meets World” and one with Marta Kauffman, the creator of “Friends.”

Other panels will focus on Fox’s “Wayward Pines,” USA’s “Playing House,” ABC Family’s “The Fosters” and Comedy Central’s “Drunk History.”

“Boomtown” will be among the shows saluted during a special “canceled too soon” panel. The show aired for two seasons on NBC about a decade ago.

“I had such a great time at ATX last year for the ‘Hey Dude’ 25th anniversary reunion that I was eager to get back,” said Graham Yost, the creator of “Justified” and “Boomtown.” “This June, the whole cast of ‘Justified’ will be there to mark the end of the series, and I’m excited to reunite with cast and producers from ‘Boomtown,’ a show that will always be very near to the hearts of those of us lucky enough to have worked on it.”

Tickets for the ATX Television Festival, which runs June 4-7 at various downtown Austin venues, are available at atxfestival.com.
