Time to keep an eye on Shudder’s social media if you want to be in the loop about their Comic-Con@Home plans because Shudder will be announcing dates and times for their two upcoming Comic-Con@Home panels.

If you’re not familiar with Comic-Con@Home, it is an event later this month where Comic-Con panels, normally requiring tickets to the event itself will be streamed from the comfort of your own couch or desk for free on YouTube. This is, of course, due to concerns surrounding the current Coronavirus pandemic.

Shudder will be presenting two panels later this month: “Scary Good TV with Horror’s Top Showrunners” and “Shudder Presents ‘Horror is Queer'” for all you horror-nerds. We’re talking big names here, too: Don Mancini, Greg Nicotero, Jami O’Brien, and Bryan Fuller will be in the mix for these events.
