Watch Charlie Hunnam greet 'Sons of Anarchy' fans in Comic-Con video

Comic-Con-Charlie-Hunnam-Clip

When Charlie Hunnam couldn’t make it to Sunday’s emotional Sons of Anarchy panel at Comic-Con, the actor knew he had to make it up to the fans. After all, this was the show’s last visit to Hall H.

Now, everyone can see the video Hunnam scripted himself to fill the void his absence left behind. SOA executive producer Paris Barclay, who directed the short, told the crowd it was his all-time favorite scene to shoot because the guys—including castmates Tommy Flanagan, Mark Boone Junior, and Kim Coates—had so much fun making it.

Anna Paquin celebrated 'True Blood's end by dyeing her hair purple

True Blood is full of fantastical beings: Witches, fairies, werewolves, and, of course, vampires. But Stephen Moyer still wishes were-tigers could have been included in the HBO show’s seven season run. “I was a bit sad that we didn’t get to see that,” he said of a scene from the original books where Sookie rides through a swamp on a were-tiger. Spin-off, anyone?

Rutina Wesley, Anna Paquin, Chris Bauer, and Moyer stopped by EW‘s Comic-Con Hideout to talk about the what other creatures they wanted to see on the show, the series’ final season, and how Paquin (colorfully) celebrated the end of filming.

'Sons of Anarchy' at Comic-Con: One SAMCRO story ends, others begin?

As the close of Comic-Con 2014 neared, the Sons of Anarchy family assembled in Hall H to discuss the FX show’s upcoming seventh and final season with EW‘s own Sons authority Mandi Bierly. On the panel were creator Kurt Sutter, executive producer/director Paris Barclay, and stars Katey Sagal, Kim Coates, Mark Boone Junior, Tommy Flanagan, Theo Rossi, Dayton Callie, David Labrava, Niko Nicotera, and Drea de Matteo. Absent was Charlie Hunnam, who was unable to attend because he’s “doing important service for Vogue magazine,” as Sutter put it. But thanks to a crowd-pleasing video greeting Hunnam shot for Comic-Con, the afternoon wasn’t an entirely Jax-free affair.

(We’ll post the video as soon as it’s available online.)

Later in the session the opening sequence from season seven was screened, prompting Callie to say, “That just scared the hell out of me,” and prompting the crowd to lose its shit. The panel was equal parts emotional (Sutter teared up as Barclay described how rare it is to find a production, and show, as good as Sons) and interesting, with the discussion stoking plenty of anticipation for the roads ahead.  READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' cast compares upcoming season to 'Three's Company'

SDCC-VIDEO-WALKING-DEAD-02.jpg

The Walking Dead might seem like a serious show, but it’s getting a sitcom makeover next season: “It has like a Martin slash Three’s Company feel,” star Danai Gurira deadpanned to EW at Comic-Con.

As you can probably guess, The Walking Dead is most likely not getting a laugh track anytime soon, but the cast was happy to elaborate on some rumors that the show would become more light-hearted when they stopped by the EW Hideout. Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus, Michael Cudlitz, Steven Yeun, and Gurira also joked about potential Comic-Con disguises and more unlikely Walking Dead scenarios—like picnics.

Watch the recently released season-five trailer for yourself, then watch their interview to compare notes. Moral of the story: Don’t trust anything the cast says.

'Grimm' Comic-Con panel hints Renard will resurrect in season 4

Grimm‘s third season ended with a disrupted wedding, a loss of powers, and an apparent death.

How the NBC show will follow up all the cliffhangers might not be fully known to even the show’s writers, as co-creator David Greenwalt confessed at Grimm‘s Comic-Con panel.

“We’re supposed to go [at the beginning of] every year and tell our betters at the network what they heck we’re doing up in our little office,” Greenwalt said. “Every year we have a plan, and every year [co-creator] Jim [Kouf] scares the hell out of me by saying, ‘Wouldn’t it be better if we did this instead…?’”

Kouf added, “We keep writing ourselves into corners, and then we have to figure out how to get out of them.”

With season four now in production, Grimm‘s writers are back in the business of getting out of corners. At the Comic-Con panel—which this year had graduated to its biggest room yet, Ballroom 20—some of those corner-escape plans were revealed. Read on for some hints of what’s to come and other fun moments from the panel. READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries' at Comic-Con: A Damon-Bonnie spinoff? Well...

Season 5 of Vampire Diaries ended with Ian Somerhalder’s Damon and Kat Graham’s Bonnie giving into the white light of oblivion. Generally speaking, “giving into the white light of oblivion” might imply that characters will not be returning anytime soon. The Vampire Diaries panel at Comic-Con made light of the characters’ apparent exit, with a video where the actors ponder whether they’ve been written off or granted a spinoff. READ FULL STORY

'Blacklist': Don't expect a Red-Liz reveal, do expect Mary-Louise Parker

“Who is Red Reddington?” asked several giant-sized posters spread around last year’s Comic-Con. That was before the debut of NBC’s The Blacklist, everyone’s new favorite James Spader Delivery System, which became a shining freshman star in a rough TV season. But even though the show was a success, in some ways, it never quite answered that central question. Or anyhow, it never provided final clarity on one key mystery: Is Red actually the long-thought-dead father of FBI agent Elizabeth Keen? READ FULL STORY

Watch the 'Archer' cast reveal God's plan for season six

SDCC-VIDEO-ARCHER.jpg

Initially, the riotously funny cast of Archer came by the EW hideout  at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the show’s upcoming sixth season. After the madness of season five’s Archer Vice, there was no telling what to expect from the animated spy comedy.

However, there’s also no telling what the Archer cast is going to say when you put them all in a room together. Fortunately, EW had a camera running. READ FULL STORY

Starz 'Outlander' opening credits revealed

OUTLANDER-INTRO

Starz’ Outlander had its world premiere screening to a rapturous crowd of 1,500 fans in downtown San Diego on Friday night. But before the airing the first episode, Emmy-winning composer Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead) treated the audience to a live performance of the show’s score, including his title credits song. It’s an arrangement of the Scottish folk tune “The Skye Boat Song” — appropriate for Starz’ romantic adventure following a 20th century woman who travels back in time to 18th century Scotland.

Below we exclusively have the Outlander credit sequence, including new footage from the series. The song, arranged by McCreary with vocals by songstress Raya Yarbrough, is going up on iTunes right now: READ FULL STORY
