This year’s New York Comic Con will be available to fans across the globe, not just those lucky enough to be in town for the event.
The 2020 panels featured will be made virtually available, with live and prerecorded content available to watch on the NYCC YouTube page. “Star Trek” and “The Stand” have been announced as the latest panels, joining a list of shows including “Animaniacs” and “Doctor Who” that have already been revealed.
This year’s schedule will offer fans the ability to engage in virtual Q&As, as well as communicate with other fans through live chat features on YouTube. Insight into new shows like Hulu’s “Helstrom,” trivia competitions revolving around fan-favorite series and a virtual marketplace will offer fans a virtual experience akin to the in-person event.
