To kick off the San Diego Comic-Con event, the stars and executive producers of Emmy-nominated comedy “Abbott Elementary” gathered from the set of season two for a virtual panel conversation.
Fans in attendance were treated to a screening of the pilot episode, exclusive behind-the-scenes content and a virtual discussion moderated by IndieWire’s Marcus Jones. The panel featured creator, executive producer and star Quinta Brunson, stars Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Chris Perfetti, Lisa Ann Walter, William Stanford Davis and Sheryl Lee Ralph, along with executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker.
Throughout the San Diego Comic-Con event, fans can walk the halls of Abbott Elementary via ABC’s immersive fan experience “New Teacher Dis-Orientation.” In partnership with Hulu + Live TV, guests can earn their very own staff credentials via experiential set recreations, channel their inner Principal Ava by striking a pose behind her official desk, or pay a visit to Janine’s classroom for the opportunity to contribute to real teachers in need through curated Scholastic ClassroomsCount™ wish lists. The activation also features original art submitted by fans via the official “Abbott Elementary” Fan Art Contest, in addition to screenings of fan-favorite episodes, live performances including a professional step dance crew, double Dutch jump-rope team and more.
Here are some photos from the event:
