What To Expect: SDCC Preparation for June 2024

It’s now June, and that means that we can officially state that San Diego Comic-Con is next month. Are you prepared? Well, alright, no one is probably ever completely prepared, but your best option for ensuring you make the most of the behemoth that is Comic-Con is keeping up with the important news. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered.

Here’s what you can expect over the next month:

More Panel Confirmations

Traditionally, this schedule is released exactly two weeks before the convention, which should mean that we won’t get a peek at the full, official schedule until July 11-14.

With that said though, the panel confirmations always slowly start to trickle in and we’re bound to know plenty of movie, TV, and other panels long before July.

Our continually updated list of Announced Panels will be going up in June as well, to track all the panel announcements for you in one easy location.

Exclusive Announcements & Presales

June will be a big month in the world of exclusives for most of the major companies. We already have details on some exclusives from fan favorites like Yesterdays and Tamashii Nations — though there’s still plenty more to be announced before the convention.

We also expect announcements to kickoff for most vendors, including Hasbro, Mattel, Funko, UCC Distributing, Factory Entertainment, Monogram, Bandai, Super7, Toddland, Symbiote Studios, official CCI merch, and so much more. 

Plus, for the last two years, the Online Exclusives Portal has opened the last week of June — though with the con being a week later this year, that may delay things just slightly.


Need parking? You have until June 9 to enter for this year’s Ace Parking lottery, with groups to be assigned on June 10.

Offsite Announcements

This may be the earliest we’ve ever gotten some big offsites confirmed in May, including the return of Funko Fundays (now two nights!), this year’s XLE parties, and Paramount+’s The Lodge.

And if things are already off to that great of a start, then they’re only going to get bigger and better from here. Last year in June, we saw announcements for the Petco Park Interactive Zone, the Hellfire Gala, Cozi TV’s Roseanne offsite, the Neopets party, Hello Kitty truck, the Comic-Con Museum exhibits, and more. And while not officially offsites, we can’t wait to see this year’s MTS trolley wraps, which should start going up very soon.

You can always find a list of offsites on our event calendar.

More SDConCast

Although the new season of the SDConCast is already in full swing, we have an exciting schedule of upcoming guests to talk movies, TV, offsites, comics, and much more all month. In addition, each week we’ll continue to keep you up to date on all the latest news, to help ensure you’re as prepared as possible for July.
