One Chicago actors are participating in Comic-Con 2020.
This weekend is Comic-Con 2020, and while it’s not happening in person, several One Chicago alums will be part of the Comic-Con At Home festivities.
We’ve compiled a list of every panel that’s relevant to either Chicago Med, Chicago Fire or Chicago PD so that fans can catch all the related happenings. Plus, we’ve provided instructions so that you know how to tune in over the weekend.
While it’s not quite the same as having an in-person event, there should still be a lot of fun (and a couple of interesting news tidbits) that come out of the programs. Not to mention, it’s always neat to see what actors and actresses are up to outside of the One Chicago world.
Here’s everything you need to know about Comic-Con At Home, which begins Thursday, July 23 and runs through Sunday, July 26.

How to watch Comic-Con At Home
Comic-Con festivities are virtual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic—but that means that you do NOT need to purchase a badge to watch any panels. They’re absolutely free, and being streamed on the convention’s YouTube channel.
Every panel has a designated day and time when it is being shown; all times are in PT. If you can’t make the scheduled time, the videos are supposed to be available to watch afterward. But how long the panels stay up may vary depending on each studio or network, so if there’s one you really want to see, watch it live!
Note for international fans: we’re not sure if any panels will be available to viewers outside of the United States.

Comic-Con 2020 schedule
THURSDAY, JULY 23 at 2:00 p.m. PT: Upload — Chicago Fire alum Andy Allo (who’s been recurring as Wendy Seager) appears on this panel to discuss her Amazon Prime Video series. Allo stars as the female lead in Upload playing Nora, a woman whose job it is to oversee accounts in a virtual afterlife, and who develops feelings for Nathan (Robbie Amell) while also being convinced that he was murdered.
SATURDAY, JULY 25 at 1:00 p.m. PT: The Right Stuff — Eloise Mumford, who recurred as Hope Jacquinot in Chicago Fire, is part of the panel about this upcoming Disney+ miniseries about the legendary Mercury Seven astronauts. She plays Trudy Cooper, wife of astronaut Gordon Cooper (Colin O’Donoghue). This is a stacked panel, also including Patrick J. Adams (Suits) and moderated by living legend Dr. Mae Jemison.
SATURDAY, JULY 25 at 2:00 p.m. PT: For All Mankind — If you enjoyed seeing Chicago PD actor Chris Agos in this Apple TV+ series about space exploration, you can learn more about the show in this panel discussion. A sneak peek of season 2 will also be provided. Note that unfortunately, Chris is not appearing on the panel, but if you enjoyed the show and want to know what’s next it’s still worth a look.
SUNDAY, JULY 26 at 1:00 p.m. PT: A Conversation with Nathan Fillion — Chicago Med‘s Mekia Cox is scheduled to make a “guest appearance” on this panel all about Nathan Fillion, her co-star on ABC’s The Rookie. Since this panel isn’t specifically about that show, more about Fillion’s whole career, it’s hard to say if Mekia is going to be a big part of the hour or not but her presence will be of interest to One Chicago viewers.
