With San Diego Comic-Con 2020 cancelled in April due to the spread of the coronavirus, Comic-Con International has revealed its online replacement convention will be free. The digital event will take place July 22-26, Collider reported Wednesday, and will host panels on movies , TV series, games, comics and more.

Comic-Con@Home was announced on YouTube in May after the COVID-19 cancellation. The online version of SDCC will also have an online exhibition hall where you can buy limited-edition merchandise, Collider said.

The four-day pop culture convention has been running for 50 years. It will return in its usual form in 2021 from July 22-25 at the San Diego Convention Center.
