First, they went to the zoo for their end-of-the-year field trip. Now, your favorite teachers are heading to San Diego. Abbott Elementary, along with TV shows and movies like Teen Wolf: The Movie, Bob’s Burgers, and Mythic Quest, are at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, with some shows making their first convention appearance. San Diego Comic-Con returns after two years of virtual events from Wednesday, July 20 to Sunday, July 24. While there’s no word yet on if panels will be streaming live on SDCC’s YouTube for those not in California, some events like the Marvel Studio panel will stream live on their respective YouTube and Twitch channels. Now all that’s left to wonder: Is Tariq going to make a surprise appearance and debut his next anti-drug track during the panel?

A few SDCC schedule highlights include:
