There will be a second edition of DC FanDome after its successful launch last August, with DC Comics and Warner Bros saying Wednesday that DC FanDome: A Global Experience is set for October 16.

The first edition came after much of the entertainment industry’s in-person events were shuttered over the past year because of the pandemic. That included Comic-Con in San Diego, a vital stop for comic and genre fare.

Jason Isaacs, Kaley Cuoco, Michael Rooker, Robin Wright, Viola Davis, Will Arnett and Aisha Tyler were also among the names taking part.

Organizers said the 2020 event garnered more than 22 million views overall and reached 220 countries and territories.
