Wizard World has added four events to its calendar for the rest of 2019, but has also cancelled one planned event. Wizard World will host shows in Los Angeles, California; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Oakland, California.

Wizard World Los Angeles takes place for a single day, June 8, at the Sony Pictures Studio Lot in Culver City, CA.
