Comic-Con as we know it is cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19. The in person event hopes to return in 2021. In its place: Comic-Con @ Home, a five day virtual event featuring 350 panels. Among those panels are two from AMC Networks’ horror-streaming service, Shudder.

From The Shudder Press Release
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, will be presenting two powerhouse horror panels at this year’s virtual Comic-Con @ Home event:
Scary Good TV with Horror’s Top Showrunners — Nick Antosca (Channel Zero), Meredith Averill (Locke & Key), Don Mancini (Chucky), Greg Nicotero (Creepshow) and Jami O’Brien (NOS4A2) offer their unique insights on why horror TV is having a moment, and what it takes to create the kind of terrifying shows that keep viewers coming back episode after episode. Moderated by screenwriter/educator Tananarive Due (executive producer Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror).
Shudder Presents Horror is Queer — Discover why horror cinema is (and always has been) queer with Sam Wineman (The Quiet Room), director of Shudder’s upcoming documentary on LGBTQ horror film history, and a panel of leading voices: Nay Bever (co-host Attack of the Queerwolf podcast), Bryan Fuller (creator Hannibal), Don Mancini (creator of the Child’s Play franchise), Lachlan Watson (actor Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and, serving as moderator, writer Jordan Crucchiola.
You can check out Horror Is Queer on Thursday July 23, 2020 from 6:00pm – 7:00pm PDT. Then catch Scary Good TV With Horror’s Top Showrunners on Saturday, July 25, 2020 from 6:00pm – 7:00pm PDT.
Very cool! Bummer there’s no in-person Comic-Con this year, but this sounds like a great alternative. You know we love Shudder. We can’t wait to check out these panels!
