San Diego Comic-Con is now going to be an online event that you can stream from home. Renamed Comic-Con @ Home 2020, the organizers posted an announcement video on its Twitter page, stating: “Coming soon… Free parking, comfy chairs, personalized snacks, no lines, pets welcome, badges for all, and a front-row seat to… Comic-Con at Home.” There’s currently no additional information regarding what the live-streamed event will entail and feature or even when it’ll take place, but given the original SDCC start date at July 23, fans can expect a similar timing for the new virtual event.

The news comes roughly a month after the organizers originally announced a full cancellation of San Diego Comic-Con 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision,” David Glanzer, a spokesman for the organization, said in a statement. The announcement marked the first time the convention has been canceled in 50 years. Despite this, its organizers vow to return in 2021, when the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has hopefully settled.
