“The most frustrating part of being a showrunner is dealing with guest cancellations,” the fan fest wrote in a Facebook post announcing the news on Tuesday, August 2. “Post-COVID all comic cons are struggling with cancellations for a variety of reasons. “

According to the post, Guerrero canceled due to her production running behind and her studio not allowing her to leave with the chance she could get COVID-19. Former San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker also canceled due to a family emergency in France, according to a post from the fan fest on Tuesday.

On Saturday, July 30, Celebrity Fan Fest also revealed that Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz wouldn’t attend the festival due to being sick. Stars Alan Ritchson from CW’s smallvilleAlexander Ludwig from heels, and Malcolm Goodwin from CW’s iZombie also are no longer heading to the festival.
