2020 Comic-Con CanceledThe planned 2020 Comic-Con has officially been canceled.

“For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020,” the convention said in a statement. “The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021.”

“Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.”

Additionally, WonderCon, which was originally postponed, will now just be held March 26-28, 2021 in Anaheim.

For those who already had plans to attend SDCC, badgeholders will be able to either request a refund or transfer their badges to 2021. Information on that will be sent via email within the next week.

“Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and while we are saddened to take this action, we know it is the right decision,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the organization. “We eagerly look forward to the time when we can all meet again and share in the community we all love and enjoy.”
