'Reign' cast teases 'lots of death,' new villains in season 2

REIGN-COMICON-VIDEO.jpg

When the cast of Reign hit their Comic-Con panel, we discovered a few things about what to expect from season 2, including more on the plague, future famine, and potential new love interests for Catherine. (Also: More sex!) But when stars Adelaide Kane, Toby Regbo, and Megan Follows stopped by EW‘s video hangout, we got further information on what will be happening when royal viewers return to France this fall.

Follows talked about season 2′s focus on the conflicting religious factions, while Kane teased new villains—or, more specifically, “new gentlemen.” Aside from the show, we also got the actors to talk about their own personal villains and the fact that Kane is a stealth nerd.

For more on Kane’s nerdy side, check out EW Radio’s (SiriusXM 105) interview with the cast. Spoiler: She once dressed up as Wonder Girl.

Reign returns to The CW Thursday, Oct. 2, at 9 p.m. ET.

The most deadly serious drama on TV once again has a funny gag reel: Below, EW has the exclusive outtakes from season 2 of NBC’s acclaimed thriller, PLUS details about the season 2 DVD release, PLUS season 3 scoop from the show’s Comic-Con panel.

First, the gag reel: The scenes include dancing in the morgue, Mads Mikkelsen forgetting how to tie his tie, Gillian Anderson losing her microphone down her shirt, and plenty of crack-ups during the show’s signature terse dining scenes. The clip (which was briefly leaked online earlier this year) is part of Hannibal‘s season 2 home video package, which we can reveal will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on Sept. 16. The disc packages will feature audio commentary with cast and crew on select episodes, a feature-length documentary on the making of episode 205, deleted scenes, and more.

Check out the gag reel below—which is a cut-down of the longer DVD version—which just played at Hannibal‘s Comic-Con panel. As you’ll see, Hannibal is so creepy that even when the cast is messing around, it’s still kinda creepy. READ FULL STORY

'Teen Wolf' at Comic Con: MTV hit renewed for fifth season with 'a lot of decision making' in the future

Herds of screaming girls and men proudly wearing “Part Wolf” shirts howled like crazy for Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, and other cast members of Teen Wolf during the supernatural hit’s Comic-Con panel this year. Though the cast was at times slightly distracted by their own image on the large video screens surrounding them—and their own poop jokes—the MTV stars provided some good scoop about the show’s current fourth season and future alongside series executive producer Jeff Davis. Well, that was after Posey decided to cartwheel onto the stage. “I think I broke my toe,” he admitted. Here are some highlights:

• The biggest and most exciting news came from Davis at the beginning of the panel, when he not only announced that the show had been renewed for a fifth season, but would also be 20 episodes long—eight more than the current season 4 order. Though there was little doubt about the show’s return, Davis commented on some of the tonal changes that the series has been going through this season, citing Steven Spielberg’s E.T. as inspiration. “[It goes] back to human problems as oppose to creating another mythology or a creature,” he said. A quick turnaround between seasons 3 and 4 and a holiday conversation with Davis’ brothers made him remember some of the “classic single mother” stories that reminded him of his own childhood, which he wanted to replicate in the show. However, when asked if any of the characters were based on real people, Davis answered, “Um… not really,” clarifying that most of the characters are inspired by the person he wanted to be in high school.

• There seems to be a rule that you either need to be named Tyler or Dylan to star on Teen Wolf. And all four guys—Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Dylan O’Brien, and Dylan Sprayberry—had plenty to share about what else they all have in common. Newcomer Sprayberry fit right into the pack with his older cast members, so much so that Posey took a moment to pronounce his love for ‘Lil Dyl Spray’ and asked to marry him. Sprayberry’s character Liam, who will be promoted to series regular next season, “starts to learn he’s okay being a werewolf but not a hero,” according to Davis. O’Brien, however, proved to be slightly more popular during the Q&A section of the panel. After being told that he was perfect, a young fan got too emotional to actually ask a question and broke out in tears. O’Brien then gave the young girl his name tag and a hug, though was scolded by security for the latter.

• The girl probably most envied by everyone in Ballroom 20 was Shelley Henning, who plays Malia, the complicated love interest of O’Brien’s character Stiles. Davis said that Shelley had a “very good sense of humor and comic timing,” which she was able to show after Posey asked her if she thought their characters had sex on the show. “NO! Sex is bad!” she exclaimed, to some groans in the room. “I’m just trying to appeal to the younger audience!” Davis hinted that Stiles and Malia’s relationship will have a rocky road ahead as a “certain secret about her parentage comes out” and confirmed to fans that “you have not seen the last of Danny,” played by Keahu Kahuanui.

• After the audience got a sneak peak at the remaining episodes of the current season, more questions were raised, mainly: How many people on this panel are getting killed? Though Davis laughed off that suggestion, he did comment that the end of the season will be filled with “a lot of decision making, a lot of character arcs coming to a finish,” and the fruition of Peter Hale’s plan. And though actor Ian Bohen wasn’t present in San Diego, his wardrobe was still a hot topic of discussion when one fan asked if he would ever stop wearing V-necks. Hoechlin replied that his shirts would likely only become deeper and wider as time goes by. However, Hoechlin was embarrassed to discover that he doesn’t really wear any shirts for the rest of the season, showing off his body in almost every remaining episode. “This is the first time I’ve seen that trailer. I guess I didn’t realize,” he said.

See a season 4 sketch from 'Key & Peele' and find out one detail about a new movie

Comedy Central has given a return date to a pair of sketch comedians so close, they’re separated by a mere ampersand: Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Key & Peele, which picked up four Emmy nominations earlier this month, will kick off season 4 on Sept. 24 at 10:30 p.m. The 11-episode season will include such famous guests as Ty Burrell (who also appeared in season 1), Rashida Jones, Retta, Chelsea Peretti, and Jason Ritter, EW has learned.

But new episodes of their sketch show aren’t the only thing on their collective plate right now. During a Key & Peele panel at Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon, the team revealed that in addition to the Vandaveon and Mike animated series that they’re developing at Comedy Central—and the big-screen comedy they’re both starring in and writing with Judd Apatow—they are developing another movie that they’ll headline. Its title? Keanu. (Alas, it doesn’t co-star Keanu Reeves.) Only one detail about the project was spilled, and it came courtesy of Peele: “Keanu is a kitten.” READ FULL STORY

'24' at Comic Con: EP Jon Cassar says 'we're still talking about the movie'

Kiefer Sutherland joined executive producer Jon Cassar at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the latest installment of 24, subtitled Live Another Day, and his parting thoughts on playing Jack Bauer again. Here are the highlights:

- While some expected the panel would elicit news of another installment, neither Cassar or Sutherland discussed another terrible day for Jack Bauer.

- Cassar did, however, admit that a 24 movie is still a possibility. “We’re still talking about the movie,” Cassar told the crowd in Ballroom 20. “It’s still potentially out there.” READ FULL STORY

Norman Reedus of 'The Walking Dead' talks about disguising himself as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew. Anthony Bourdain kind of looked at me like, what the hell are you doing right now? But I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain. If I didn’t have this job as Daryl Dixon, I would definitely want his job.”

Of course, there are scores upon scores of fans who would kill to get up close and personal with Reedus. But that can be a bit of a problem for when the star wants to go walk the convention floor. To try to an evade prying eyes, Reedus has employed a variety of costumes over the years so he can mingle undetected with even the most hardcore fans. He shared one such story about going incognito with a Walking Dead castmate. READ FULL STORY

See Carol, Judith, and Rick of 'The Walking Dead' in new season 5 images

Last week we brought you an exclusive image from season 5 of The Walking Dead that likely sent shivers up the spines of Daryl Dixon fans, as the resident badass appeared gagged and bound. Now we have some more exclusive episodic images to tide you over.

In the first, we see Melissa McBride’s Carol holding an adorable baby Judith. Sooooo…good news, they’re still alive! When the season starts, that is. After that, who knows? But at least Carol is not telling Judith to “look at the flowers,” because we all know how that ends. Also, Judith does not appear to be a zombie. So that’s a positive…although she does appear to be rocking something of a devilock hairstyle. (Click on the Full Size magnifying glass tab to see a bigger high-res version of the photo.)

But wait, we’re not done. Now, let’s move onto page 2 for a look at what Rick Grimes is up to.

New 'Walking Dead' season 5 art features cast in handcuffs

AMC has released new The Walking Dead art for season five (which premieres in October) just in time for the show’s Comic-Con panel this Friday afternoon in San Diego. In it, we see Rick, Carl, Michonne, Daryl, Glenn, Maggie, and Abraham ready to do battle. Just a few problems: First off, they are still in that damn train car. And secondly, they all appear to be handcuffed, which severely limits their collective ass-kicking capabilities. (To see the full image, just click on the magnifying glass icon on the picture above.)

'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus thought Daryl Dixon was about to be killed off last season

Last week we brought you an exclusive photo from season 5 of The Walking Dead that showed Daryl Dixon gagged and bound. No doubt that sent shivers down the spines among fans of Dixon and the man who plays him, Norman Reedus. Of course, as a fan favorite, Daryl would seem to be the last person the show would ever dream of killing off. However, Reedus did actually think his number was being called near the end of season 4 when Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman…well, called his number. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks season 5 and promises 'our best season yet'

Season 4 of The Walking Dead may have ended with a cliffhanger and many questions about the folks of Terminus that trapped our group of survivors, but creator Robert Kirkman says when the show returns in October that we will “very quickly deal with the situation that we left them in.” And that’s not all he told us. As Kirkman and Co. prepare to return to Comic-Con in San Diego (their panel is on Friday, July 25), the man who gave birth to the comic book and is an executive producer on the TV adaptation talked more about what — and whom — we can expect to see in season 5. (WARNING: Spoilers below. So now you’ve been warned.) READ FULL STORY

See Norman Reedus' Daryl Dixon gagged and bound on 'The Walking Dead'

“If Daryl dies, we riot” has been a familiar refrain from fans of the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon. That means Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman could have a melee on his hands if he does indeed off Daryl as he promised on Entertainment Weekly Radio (although we’re pretty sure he was kidding). Regardless, Dixon devotees are likely to gasp at this exclusive new image from season 5 of the zombie drama, which returns in October on AMC. (Click on the Full Size magnifying tab to view the full image in all of its high resolution glory.)

In it, we see a bloodied and bruised Daryl, who has also been gagged and bound…and not in a sexy way as legions of ladies no doubt dream about on a daily basis. (Or maybe this is considered sexy. I have no idea. People are into some freaky stuff.) READ FULL STORY
