The San Diego Comic-Con has been taking place for over 50 years. It hosts panels from various movies and TV series. But it might cancel this year.

Its future is very uncertain as for the last 2 years, the convention has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Even with its success last year in the midst of the pandemic, these platforms are hesitant to continue their affiliation with the SDCC this year.

Due to the ongoing writer’s strike, it seems that actors will also join the fray and unless all these problems are resolved.

We might be looking at a very empty Comic-Con this year. Scroll down to know more.

Can San Diego Comic-Con Catch a Break?

With all these studios opting out of Comic-Con fans would miss first looks behind the scenes for productions like The Marvels, Loki, True Detective, House of Dragon to name a few and even with Netflix hosting its Tudum event in Brazil, there is a chance they may opt out of comic con permanently.

However, since the main draw for the Comic-Con itself are the panelists and world-famous actors, their absence would mean a serious decline in numbers compared to previous years.

But nevertheless, organizers of the SDCC have all but assured fans that they will be going ahead with the event regardless of any changes that may take place with the studios and hope to make it as “fun, educational and celebratory as in years past.”

So, for all the TV fans out there, Comic-Con will be business as usual with schedules releasing July 5th and panels opening on July 19th.
