‘Abbott Elementary’ is heading to San Diego Comic-Con, literally


Fans of the hit show “Abbott Elementary” will have the chance to wander the halls of the eponymous school – when the series debuts at San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

On July 21, Hulu is launching an immersive experience where visitors can feel like they’re part of the school through recreations of the “Abbott Elementary” set. The event will also collect donations for class wishlists from real teachers, a nod to one of the series’ plot points.

The news comes shortly after the show earned seven nominations for the 74th Emmy Awards, including one for Outstanding Comedy Series.

“Abbott Elementary”, created by and starring Quinta Brunson, follows a group of teachers at an underfunded elementary school in Philadelphia. It was a ratings hit for ABC, also earning a perfect score on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.

The second season of the show is set to premiere on September 21.
