'Vampire Diaries' stars answer your questions at Comic-Con -- VIDEO

When the Vampire Diaries stars aren’t filming, what do they miss most about the set?

A fan sent that Twitter question in to EW’s Sandra Gonzalez, and Paul Wesley definitely had the best answer.

“I miss gazing into those eyes,” Wesley said while staring lovingly at co-star Ian Somerhalder, who even has a Photoshopped pic of the bros holding hands on his iPhone case.

Comic-Con: What's lunch break like on the 'Walking Dead' set? -- VIDEO

Andrew Lincoln told EW’s Anthony Breznican at Comic-Con that Rick is “in a completely new place” when The Walking Dead season 4 begins in October.

“He’s a new Rick,” the actor said.

But the real Walking Dead question is: What is lunch break like on the ultra-violent, ultra-bloody set? How can the actors possibly eat around all those blood and guts?

See their answers about that and more below:

'Revolution' season 2 trailer drops nuclear spoilers

The panel: NBC’s tease-filled panel for Revolution season two, including showrunner Eric Kripke and several members of the cast.

Footage screened: A highlight reel that includes the first footage from season two (see below).

The big revelations: Usually panelists are totally paranoid about revealing any spoilers, but showrunner Eric Kripke drew gasps at Comic-Con by revealing — spoiler alert in case you’re not sufficiently warned by now — that our heroes do not stop those nukes from falling on Philadelphia and Atlanta. “We’re trying to be the first network show in history that loses two American cities in the first 15 seconds [of a season],” Kripke said. “We’re back to a very intense set of basics, [a world] that’s even more dangerous than in season one.”

He also revealed the nation’s rebooted power would not stay on very long — barely at all, in fact. “Just enough to get the nukes in the air,” he said. Want more spoilers? Thanks to the sinister Patriots group, Gen. Monroe (David Lyons) and Miles (Billy Burke) will eventually team up. “The idea is to create a villain this year that’s so bad and so insidious that even our heroes and villains have to band together to face this threat.” The idea came from the writers just really wanting to see Miles and Monroe “kicking ass together.” The writer-producer notes that if the first season became a war show, the second will focus more on mystery and characters “rather than running and gunning.” Noted Kripke: “They’re up against a threat you can’t just swing a sword at.” Oh, and the Texas Rangers will make an appearance (the law enforcement agency, I’m assuming, not the baseball team). Overall Kripke assured next season will be better than the first.

Most incisive audience question: Here’s one thing that won’t change: A fan smartly asked if the show’s move to an early time-slot (8 p.m. on Wednesdays) means the show will be less graphic or violent. Kripke assured such levels would remain unchanged.

Here’s a trailer that includes the first footage from season two:

'Breaking Bad' at Comic-Con: A group hug to say goodbye

Before the final eight episodes of Breaking Bad begin airing on August 11, EW caught up with creator Vince Gilligan and stars Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, RJ Mitte, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk at Comic-Con.

Although they were tightlipped about what will happen to Walter White and co, they did talk about the show’s achievements, the possible Saul spinoff — and what it was like saying goodbye.

“My last day of filming was really nice,” Gunn said. “Aaron, Bryan [Cranston] and I had a little group hug.”

Watch the interview below. READ FULL STORY

'True Blood' cast spills secrets at Comic-Con

Did you know True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello has two fake front teeth? Or that Anna Camp bases the portrayal of her (sometimes) prim character on her own mother? EW Managing Editor Jess Cagle sat down with the cast, including Anna Paquin, Rutina Wesley, Ryan Kwanten, Deborah Ann Woll, Nelsan Ellis, Anna Camp, Sam Trammel, Michael McMillian, Manganiello, and newcomer Rob Kazinsky, and asked them to tell us something new — and maybe kinda weird — about themselves. Their answers might surprise you! READ FULL STORY

'The Vampire Diaries' at Comic-Con: The cast on Elena and Damon, the big 100th episode, and college plans

The Project: The Vampire Diaries

The Panel: Nina Dobrev (Elena), Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Paul Wesley (Stefan), Kat Graham (Bonnie), Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes), Caroline Dries (writer), Julie Plec (Executive Producer), moderated by Debra Birnbaum

Footage Screened: Before the panel began, the audience got a three-part recap of the past four seasons, with one focusing on the most recent and Silas. The others played as a kind of “best of” compilation of Elena and Stefan, and Elena and Damon. It got pretty sexy.

Snap Judgment: The people have spoken screamed and Damon is the vampire of choice. Somerhalder even pulled out a chair for Executive Producer Julie Plec when she came to join the panel and then gave her and Kat Graham kisses on the cheek. Smooth fellow. But overall, things seem to be in transition in The Vampire Diaries universe, and everyone is getting their footing in these new settings and relationships. Somerhalder said of Elena’s choice, “I thought they were joking. Damon never gets the girl. It’s always Stefan.” Wesley quickly chimed in: “Don’t underplay your sexy blue eyes. Don’t downplay the Smolder-halder.” Then, Wesley added with a laugh, “Enjoy it buddy. I did it for three years.”

'Grimm' Comic-Con panel: Cast, writers tease a different side of Nick and an exciting future for Rosalee/Monroe

The project: NBC’s Grimm

The panel: David Giuntoli (Nick), Russell Hornsby (Hank), Bitsie Tulloch (Juliette), Silas Weir Mitchell (Monroe), Reggie Lee (Sgt. Wu), Sasha Roiz (Renard), Bree Turner (Rosalee), Claire Coffee (Adalind), and executive producers Jim Kouf, David Greenwalt, Todd Milliner, and Norberto Barbara.

Footage screened: The first few minutes of season 3 screened for the Comic-Con audience — a scene cut together from footage shot just this past Tuesday. If fans hoped to see footage of Nick post-Baron Samedi attack, they left disappointed, but the clip did feature Monroe, Juliette, and Rosalee escaping from the zombified Portlanders in the container yard, picking up right where season 2 left off. Monroe’s in the driver’s seat — let’s just say he shows off some fast and furious skills here. After the panel discussion, the audience was also treated to a bloody extended trailer for new NBC series Dracula with a video introduction by star Jonathan Rhys Meyers, looking just as creepy in his intro as he does in the show.

'Agents of SHIELD' at Comic-Con: Clark Gregg on Agent Coulson's revival

Phil Coulson died in The Avengers, but he doesn’t stay dead for long. As evidenced by the trailer and pilot for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Clark Gregg’s character is alive and well.

“When they called and said, ‘We think you might not be 100-percent dead,’ my first call was to Joss [Whedon] to say ‘So talk to me about it, so I don’t undermine what we did there,” Gregg says of Coulson’s death and resurrection. Watch more of our interview with Gregg and the rest of the stars of SHIELD below, and see what we thought of the pilot here. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' stars tear up at Comic-Con over final season -- VIDEO

We didn’t mean to make them cry!

The How I Met Your Mother cast — Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, and Jason Segel — sat down with EW’s Laura Hertzfeld at Comic-Con, and what started as a lighthearted interview (“Kiefer Sutherland is the mom!”) turned emotional when we asked what the actors will miss most after their ninth and final season.

See the clearly tight-knit cast (the five of them even shared one couch that would barely fit Segel by himself) open up in the video below:

Robert Kirkman comic 'Clone' gets TV deal

Now zombies. Soon clones?

The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman has another project being developed for TV. His imprint at Image Comics debuted Clone from writer/creator David Schulner late last year and now the title is getting a TV development deal with NBC Universal (call it the Orphan Black Effect).

The logline: “What if there were more of you? And what if you could save those versions of yourself from being killed. The show’s themes of identity and nature verses nurture are intrinsic to the roller-coaster ride of a story.”

Says Schulner in a statement: “I knew if I went off the rails too badly Robert would be there to put me back on track  Now I’ve been writing the comic for two years, issue #9 comes out next week and I just finished writing issue 15, so to be able to turn it into a television show is just icing on the cake.”
