San Diego Comic-Con will be holding an in-person three-day “special edition” event over Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 26-28, 2021 at the San Diego Convention Center, the organization announced Saturday. The hope is that by the Fall, the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic will have passed and larger public gatherings will be permitted. “While we have been able to pivot from in-person gatherings to limited online events, the loss of revenue has had an acute impact on the organization as it has with many small businesses, necessitating reduced work schedules and reduction in pay for employees, among other issues,” David Glanzer, spokesperson for the nonprofit organization, said in a statement Saturday. “Hopefully this event will shore up our financial reserves and mark a slow return to larger in-person gatherings in 2022.” Also Read: San Diego Comic-Con to Go Virtual Again for 2021 Details about specific events, badge cost and attendance capacity are all still in the planning stages and will be announced down the line. You can visit their website, comic-con.org, for updated information as it becomes available. Due to concern for public health and safety, the annual convention had to cancel in-person events in San Diego 2020, as well as its spring 2021 show, WonderCon in Anaheim. In its place, WonderCon@Home held a free online event on March 26 and 27, 2021, and a three-day Comic-Con@Home event is set for July 23-25, 2021. Last year’s Comic-Con@Home featured three days of pre-taped Zoom panels and other content. It also came at a massive cost to the non-profit organization that puts on the yearly event. San Diego Comic-Con typically draws 135,000 comic book fans to Southern California every July. Also Read: What Virtual New York Comic Con Learned From the Triumphs and Glitches of DC FanDome and Comic-Con@Home The financial impact extended to the city of San Diego, which also went an entire year without fans in attendance for San Diego Padres games. According to the San Diego Convention Center Corporation, the city was projecting a regional impact of more than $166 million, including almost $100 million in total spending by attendees, which includes hotels, restaurants and other city attractions. Hollywood studios that are promoting the launch of a new film or TV show often hold activities outside the center and other venues. Those studios usually hire local companies to help. Comic-Con also generates more than $3 million in taxes for the city. Read original story San Diego Comic-Con Sets In-Person Thanksgiving Weekend Special Edition At TheWrap

Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the series centers on the humanity’s survivors, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train circling the globe.Also Read: 'Westworld' Season 3 Trailer: Dolores Is Still Fighting Humans, Maeve Is Now Fighting Nazis (Video)Slated for a Spring 2020 premiere on TBS, the project has overcome a number of development stumbles, including a contentious showrunner swap, extensive reshoots and a move from its original home at TNT.Josh Friedman wrote the pilot and was set to serve as showrunner, but was replaced by “Orphan Black” co-creator Graeme Manson last year, a decision the network attributed to creative differences. Friedman later said he was “fired” from the project, and went after Manson on Twitter for taking over the show. Following Friedman’s exit, director Scott Derrickson exited the project due to a “radically different vision” from Manson, and was replaced by James Hawes.Connelly, Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Benjamin Haigh, Sasha Frolova, Katie McGuinness, Alison Wright, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand and Lena Hall make up the cast.Also Read: 'The Orville' Moves From Fox to Hulu for Season 3The series is produced by Tomorrow Studios along with CJ Entertainment, which produced the original film.

Seth MacFarlane’s “The Orville” is beaming over from Fox to Hulu for its upcoming third season.The sci-fi series’ creator and star shared the news himself during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, revealing Season 3 will launch on the streaming service as a Hulu original in late 2020.An individual with knowledge of the “Star Trek”-esque show’s move from Fox to Hulu told TheWrap that “Orville” studio 20th Century Fox Television and MacFarlane worked closely with the broadcast network and streaming service to make the shift happen, as Fox had already renewed the series for Season 3 back in May.Also Read: 'Westworld' Season 3 Trailer: Dolores Is Still Fighting Humans, Maeve Is Now Fighting Nazis (Video)Another insider close to the situation said that MacFarlane’s current work schedule would make it difficult to complete new episodes of “The Orville” — which he writes, produces, directs, edits and stars on — in time to make its intended mid-season,. Moving the show to Hulu, where its repeats currently stream, would allow him to bring it back “more loosely,” the insider said.“‘The Orville’ has been a labor of love for me, and there are two companies which have supported that vision in a big way: 20th Century Fox Television, where I’ve had a deal since the start of my career, and Fox Broadcasting Company, now Fox Entertainment, which has been my broadcast home for over 20 years,” MacFarlane said in a statement. “My friends at the network understood what I was trying to do with this series, and they’ve done a spectacular job of marketing, launching and programming it for these past two seasons.”Also Read: San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Schedule: Here Are All the Must-See Panels and ScreeningsHe added: “But as the show has evolved and become more ambitious production-wise, I determined that I would not be able to deliver episodes until 2020, which would be challenging for the network. So we began to discuss how best to support the third season in a way that worked for the show. It’s exactly this kind of willingness to accommodate a show’s creative needs that’s made me want to stick around for so long. I am hugely indebted to Charlie Collier and Fox Entertainment for their generosity and look forward to developing future projects there. And to my new friends at Hulu, I look forward to our new partnership exploring the galaxy together.”“The Orville” is a live-action, one-hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that follows the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the problems of everyday life.“Fox Entertainment has been a fantastic home for ‘The Orville’ and their willingness to support the show’s move to Hulu is incredibly appreciated; they really are great partners to us on so many shows and this is one more example,” said Carolyn Cassidy, 20th Century Fox Television president of creative affairs. “We’re thrilled as a studio to find this creative solution which is so meaningful to Seth and keeps the show on track to continue entertaining its millions of fans.”Also Read: 'The Expanse' Season 4 Gets Premiere Date - See the First Footage Here (Video)“We know our viewers are huge fans of ‘The Orville,’ along with many of Seth MacFarlane’s groundbreaking hit shows, and we can’t wait to bring Season 3 to them exclusively on the platform,” Craig Erwich, senior vice president of content development at Hulu, added. “Hulu is a home for the world’s most sought-after creative talent, and we’re incredibly excited to welcome Seth and the entire cast and creative team of ‘The Orville’ to our Hulu originals slate.”The series is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Fuzzy Door Productions. MacFarlane created the series and writes, executive producing alongside Brannon Braga, David A.
