'Outlander' Star Sam Heughan Added to Wizard World Chicago 2021 Lineup

Conventions of all genres have decided that they're not keeping their doors closed for another year and are ready to welcome fans back to celebrate the things that they love. Wizard World Comic Con has locked in its return to Chicago, Ill. in mid-autumn after pushing back its 2021 Summer show date. The convention hosted near the Windy City is bringing back fan-favorite guests, and Outlander star Sam Heughan has been added to the roster.

Heughan starred on Outlander as James Fraser and was a tremendous hit with fans after previously attending Wizard World New Orleans. He will be present on the show floor only on Saturday, October 16, where fans can purchase autographs, photo ops, and attend a ticketed live Q&A panel. Aside from public events, he will partake in events that are exclusive only to VIP pass-holders.
